Working from memory and crafting in clay, Maloy recreates others’ work, translating experience and memory into a new form capturing the subjectivity of experience.
Concerned with questions of learning and experience, Things I Have Seen (2017) is a video work made up of numerous performances by the artist in his Tokyo studio recreating works of art he has physically encountered.
