The garage door opens on this sleepy side street of Silver City, revealing altered terrain, one in which every surface has been terraformed by an obsessive collagist. Jean-Robert Beffort sits at the door in a small chair day by day and shoots the shit with those who pass by, known and unknown. Found objects are transformed in this laser beam to become one-of-a-kind sculptures and mobiles, riddled with doll heads and smacked with electric paint. He doesn’t seem to care that only a rare straggler darkens the door, he creates art for its own compulsive sake. Art that is interactive and accessible and generates a ripple effect of creativity.

There is a massive trove of trinkets and broken ephemera that are made accessible to the public. ART ON A STICK invites you to take whatever pieces catch your eye and create your own collagist object d’art. Come and revel in this temple of enthusiastic strangeness.
