Taylor Sakarett's A Human Pile Archive

I’ve closely collaborated with several artists over the years, including Taylor Sakarett. Taylor passed away on January 22, 2020 at age 30 after a brief illness. Taylor left a majority of his belongings to me, a collaborator in life and art since we met in 2009. Following his death, organizing and archiving Taylor’s belongings and art became a part of my studio practice. I mounted a memorial exhibition at the end of 2022 at Flux Factory showing his paintings, sculptures, and video works. Archiving Taylor’s art holds urgency for me as a tactic to impact recorded histories.
