"Noah Kalina’s sculpted bedding photos are a combination of obvious, albeit clever staging and the lucky happenstance combinations of pattern, texture, lighting, and sculptural gravitas. We are presented with something so very common or accepted to the point of dismissal, but after the artist styles the scene we are surprised at how fresh and completely new our perspective allows the object or setting to transcend the banal and become extraordinary." - F-Stop Magazine When we think of beds, we usually think of them as neatly made, waiting to be used. Noah Kalina wanted to undo that, to pull back the covers and sculpt a monumental shape out of the fabric where our bodies would be, and where our bodies have been, as both a still-life (of the materials of sleep) and a portrait (of someone's presence). Bedmounds is the culmination of Kalina’s long-term project creating and capturing sculptural forms in the middle of beds around the world. The mounds appear to take on anthropomorphic qualities, highlighting the relationship between presence and absence. Bedmounds takes a common scene and adds a twist – subverting what we are expecting to see by inserting something unanticipated.
