ANGIE SEYKORA // Part to Part
Omaha artist Angie Seykora transforms cast-off plastics and other familiar objects into mysterious and seductive sculptures. Using mass-produced, ubiquitous products – plastic wrap, steel wool, disposable placemats – that typically serve one very specific task, the artist explores the material properties and purposes of commonplace items. In her process-based practice, Seykora focuses on the visual and tactile qualities of these items, altering them through repetition, handiwork, and scale. By ignoring the prescribed functions of these objects and considering only their physical properties, the artist forces us to question exactly what we are seeing, the sustainability of cultural production, and how we place value on the things we keep and those we part with.
Part to Part will run April 14 to May 27th, 2017 at The Union for Contemporary Art’s Wanda D. Ewing Gallery.
