Two sculptures consisting of detached handles rest atop a standardized plinth. Stripped from discarded refrigeration units, the modest scaled objects connote kitchens and their immediate domestic surroundings.

While the handles may provide an associative investigation into applied design, their lack of utility subtly contends with its critique.
