DESCRIPTION

Sculpture | 2023

Made up of “Trophies,” Chiswell’s sculpture series translates the narrative told in its lifetime of marks. Reshaping the recognizable object's profile, the broken down and destroyed surface contains carved idioms, which translate its essence into comprehensible language. Chiswell allows the Trophy to become a genuine account-a history of aspiration-marking the delicate dance between achievement and breaking point. “When it's done, when the board is finished, when it gets to this point, it is a Trophy.”

About the Process

Chiswell's Trophies Series

To make works from his "Trophies" series, Chiswell skates on a skateboard until it breaks. During each skating session he repeats a specific word, like "try" or "best" to himself. When the board breaks, Chiswell considers it then a "Trophy" and the word he repeated is carved into it.
