One-Week MFA Thesis Exhibition: Carley Zarzeka

February 26 @ 8:00 am - March 2 @ 5:00 pm

Though sculptural and installation-based practice, Is a Call to Pleasure a Loss? investigates the standardization of construction materials in the United States and their relationship to the domestic space. An assemblage of found objects, including building supplies, are employed in the service of these sometimes precarious constructions. Utilizing strategies of juxtapositions that highlight lines, gravity, and balance, attention is called to these objects’ material and formal qualities–qualities that are intentionally concealed in the building process.
