  • Artist Rooms
Plates are an important motif in Therrien’s practice. This work is one of a series of stacked plate sculptures the artist has made which vary in medium, size and colour. Here, Therrien has created a vast tower of twenty oversized plastic soup dishes that tilt at precarious angles. The simple utilitarian plate design is modelled on a type of mass-produced kitchenware popular in the early to mid-twentieth century in the roadside diners that appeared with the increasing use of cars in the United States at that time.
