PRESENCE OF LABOR |
AN INSTALLATION BY SARAH KOLAR

July 8th - July 30th, 2016
Wanda D. Ewing Gallery* // 2520 N. 24th Street

The Union is pleased to present Presence of Labor - an installation by Union Fellowship Alum Sarah Kolar in the Wanda D. Ewing Gallery. The work recalls the dynamic relationship between the consumption that commodity obsessed culture imposes and the form of the structures presented. Kolar explores the global production process of creating yarn to be knit into fabric to be sewn into a shirt and relates it to her large-scale fiber sculptures that evoke the process that goes into creating an individual garment.
