don’t try this at home

We went to check out the opening of the show: “Don’t Try This At Home, A Group Exhibition Obsessively Reshaping The Ordinary” at The Intersection on Monday, and were blown away by the innovation, fun, and simplicity of it. The show is a wonderland of innovative uses of found objects and recycled materials like: dryer lint, dog hair, wood, old couches, and doilies. I tried to imagine the artists constructing their art with a meditative fervor, repetitive motions over hours, like chanting a mantra.

From The Intersection website, “The artists in this exhibition share a compulsion for time and labor-intensive, craft-inspired processes in order to re-envision everyday household items into remarkably inventive and resourceful works of art. This complex exhibition seeks to find and demonstrate basic but profound and deeply poetic interactions with material that we come across every day.”

Artists in the exhibit include: Tamara Albaitis, Lauren Davies, Krishna Khalsa, Stephani Martinez & Zachary Royer Scholz.
