Bourgeois Landfill

Hope Gangloff

In a 2013 interview with Yuri Masnyj for Bomb Magazine Gangloff responded to the question "What is a bourgeois landfill?" with, "All the crap in my studio that I couldn’t throw away for some reason—because of color, design, typeface, or all three, or just conceptually. I like things. I have a big collection of sparkly and pale colored buttons and other notions for sewing that I’m going to paint....I’ve collected them all from specific people, so it’s not that I’m referencing myself by painting this collection of shiny buttons. I’m referencing the people that hung onto these weird objects—like a family portrait." Source: Masnyj, Yuri.
