Mattress Factory


This developing installation is a collaborative project of artists Lenka Clayton and Phillip Andrew Lewis.

The trash generated by the normal operations of the Mattress Factory Museum will be redirected — stored, catalogued and displayed — instead of being thrown away. The gallery will begin as a blank white space and will slowly fill up with the discarded materials of all aspects of institutional activities, which may include production waste from art installations, administrative office debris and deinstalled artworks, among other things.

This installation can be viewed at the museum’s Monterey Annex Gallery.
