Ro2 Art Gallery presents Marilyn Waligore: "Post-Convenience" opening reception
Ro2 Art will present Marilyn Waligore’s solo exhibition featuring new works, "Post-Convenience." Waligore creates images using reclaimed aluminum forms to develop new sculptural structures in an absurd comment on the potential possibilities for the reuse of post-consumer waste. Her work in "Post-Convenience" forges a link between photography and sculpture and reflects on our societies complex relationship with consumption.
The artist collects her aluminum objects during walks through her neighborhood, seeking materials with characteristics that resist manipulation, yet remain malleable. Waligore presents her images in a high-resolution format, often found in product photography and portray objects as something of value. "Post-Convenience" emphasizes an embrace of conservation, and compels a reconsideration of our daily habits and their global impact.
Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on view through June 29.
