Scavenger Constructs: Site-Specific Sculptures features five visual artists who re-contextualizes everyday objects to create sculptures and installations which reveal the delicate and transient balance between humans and nature, order and chaos. Artists Sally Heller, Mara Baker, Soyeon Cho, Karen Rifas, and Melissa Pokorny create works that ask viewers the contemplate the surroundings of their everyday life and find potential in common mass-produced objects. Acting as scavengers, they gather and reinterpret objects destined for the landfill and link them together to create new forms which pay homage to nature as a mystical and ever-evolving force.
