Come and attend an exhibition and reception for current artists-in-residence Ramekon O’Arwisters, Anja Ulfeldt, and student artist Jinmei Chi on Friday, January 20, from 5-8pm. This exhibition will be the culmination of four months of work by the artisst who have scavenged materials from the dump to make art and promote recycling and reuse.
- Ramekon O’Arwisters is a social-practice artist who creates collaborative art projects infused with folk-art traditions that foster a culture of community building. During his residency he has continued this work, but has also created a collection of sculptures that connect to the core tenets that underlie his practice.
- Anja Ulfeldt – With the title Beyond Repair as her central theme, Anja Ulfeldt resurrects objects that have been cast into obsolescence. Her intention is not to merely reinstate them, but move past repair to imbue them with an afterlife as a way to mourn, accept and ultimately embrace change.
- Jinmei Chi – Dizz Mall is a fictional store created by Jinmei Chi who plays with the tropes of marketing and sales to illustrate the absurdity of our culture of consumption. Chi has packaged found materials, combining items to create nonsensical products, and presents them in a store-like setting.
