Fertile Remnants

Fertile Remnants

Art Show, Installations, Gallery
Ms. Callesen's installation invites you to enter a new environment, immersing yourself in a temporary world. The art work is created with 90% post consumer materials, including objects left behind by residents who were evicted from this district in transition. Callesen is exploring inner and outer landscapes through the symbolism contained within the discarded object, looking at the connections created between the present and the unknown past, the sentimental and utilitarian, and the reality of creation and destruction. Fabric forms coexist and relate to transformed discarded objects, to explore our daily personal connection to material objects. Asking why do we treasure some objects and discard others? Why are some emotions acceptable and some distained? The installation will take place in two locations: inside the gallery at Surel's Place and inside a literal remnant from the neighborhood- an abandoned trailer found behind a house that was demolished just this month. Ms. Callesen says she is grateful for the unique live/work environment that is allowing her to collaborate with the physical structure of the gallery and relate to the light, angles, and architecture of Surel’s Place and also install in a second location: the "mysterious green box."
