EUGENIA RASKOPOULOS's work (dis)order is now on show at the Ningbo Museum in China in their 2019 Pacific Rim exhibition.

This work sees a tower built from discarded whitegoods stacked high and then toppled by the artist. Footage of the performance plays over the site of the destruction, where the appliances now lay scattered.

(dis)order is at once action and archive. It questions the speed at which we obtain and discard technologies of convenience, and implies that these machines are an inadequate or impermanent substitute to the body in domestic space.

The Ningbo Art Museum was built in 2005 and designed by Pritzker Prize-winning architect Wang Shu.
