Michelle Marcuse flirted with sculpture-making for a long while, but only when she started channeling her memories of childhood in suburban Capetown, South Africa, did she find her 3D voice. Marcuse, who along with her partner, Henry Bermudez, runs House Gallery also found her materials — recycled cardboard, glue — and an aesthetic that is primal and playful, combining both pieces of her childhood experience. In this 34-minute interview she talks about coming to sculpture and her memories of childhood that triggered the change in her art practice. Fleisher Challenge link. A.M.
