GoggleWorks Center for the Arts is pleased to present Carol Wisker / Hosts: Life, Death + the Absurd at the Schmidt Gallery.
Carol Wisker’s sculptural installations use fiber and textiles combined with furniture, mannequins, and mundane objects to express her interests in contemporary social concerns, science, and politics. Rendered with emotion and wit, the skillfully crafted multi-media installations memorialize human and environmental loss, explore bioscience, feminism, and immigration; as well as poke fun at the politics of the visual art world.
The soft, seductive sculptural surfaces made from individual medallions of raw natural cotton have become Wisker’s signature medium over the past six years. She uses them to form thick, dense surfaces that serve as casings of small objects as diverse as silk cocoons or rubber tubing.
