Conduit Gallery presents Sandra Ono: Everything and Nothing opening reception
Informed by biology and physiology, Sandra Ono’s amorphous sculptures are additive constructions built upon, piece by piece, from transformed commercial materials. Interested in what we consume and how those same materials can consume us, Ono mines dollar stores and big box “buy in bulk” retailers for synthetic and ubiquitous products such as Q-tips, aluminum foil, fish tank sand, Ace bandages and sandwich bags. Ono then melts, cuts down and glues the individual cellular elements into non-functioning, organic and corporeal forms that examine experiences of the human body.
Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display through October 15.
