Pelle's sculptural work sets the stage for considering subjective and collective desires. Suggestively narrative and phenomenological works use materials and language to investigate how we configure relationships—between one another, things, and ourselves. Mobilizing multiple cultural memories and references, her work is grounded in the home as a primary site of belonging, materialized identity construction, and social negotiation. Her work materializes a sense of longing, while disclosing the processes of construction—shifting the work between palpable desire and a denaturalized assembly of materials. The effect encourages self-reflection while implicating oneself in the problematic of desire and desiring.
