Yvonne Droge Wendel: Item Store


For Group Process, Yvonne Droge Wendel created ‘Item Store’, a custom built shop unit that presented a variety of obscure objects for visitors to look at, play with and discuss. Item Store was open for business in a variety of locations including the Loughborough Student Union building and Loughborough Market in the town's centre.

The objects intend to be ‘something’ and ‘nothing’ at the same time. Their shape, colour and texture were  almost identical and they reveal little about their function.

Labels were attached to each item. The labels reveal the identity of the objects, providing a variety of possible interpretations, through a range of manuals, stories, images, histories or colour charts. The labels were exchangeable and arbitrarily attributed.

New labels opened new directions. The objects can be seen therefore as fashion items, toys, tools, instruments collector’s items, art objects or interior decoration items. All items were ready to be given a name, a context or a purpose with the input of the observer.

Yvonne Dröge Wendel is a visual artist based in Amsterdam. A central theme within her work is her personal obsession with collecting, making and restoring ‘things’. What is the most enriching experience between object and human subject? How do people and ‘things’ relate?
