Materials: white painted titanium
Collection: Bruikleen M HKA van Stichting Beeldende Kunst Middelburg/De Vleeshal (Inv. no. VH0287-0290).
In Mini Manager, Rita McBride makes sculptural abstractions from household control panels. The original appearance and function of these objects is removed, and they are covered with an even white layer. McBride wants to investigate the function of these panels, precisely by hiding them in her work. Does our imagination permit us to immediately assign a new function, or do we associate these white sculptures only with the operating panel for heating? By bringing them into an artistic context, McBride makes us aware of their presence, and also of the potential beauty that these inconspicuous objects have.
