In Consuming Meaning (2014), a patchwork quilt of plastic, fabric, cotton, and string is draped over an L-shaped metal rod drilled to the wall. In Stuff Between Skin and Exterior (2015), the fabric hangs from the bar like a shower curtain. Employing this range of materials and often incorporating everyday objects, Steinum works with polarities, in physical and conceptual terms. The hard linearity and right angles of the metallic scaffolds versus the organic shapes and bleeding colors of the quilts; the soft, matte felt squares versus the transparent plastic ones; the handmade quality of the textile collages versus the industrial precision of the rods. Steinum performs different actions on different materials, highlighting their contrasting appearances and tactile qualities. She pulls everyday objects from their mundane contexts, restructuring them to raise questions around the physical materials that can comprise art.
