Jarring

at Delaware Contemporary

May 26 - August 27, 2017

featuring: Roberto Lugo, Theodore Harris, Charlie Cunningham, Yelizaveta Masalimova, and Mat Tomezsko

“Jarring” is used as a metonym to suggest a double meaning of a jar as both a container and the subject that is held within.  Because an urn contains remnants in the form of ashes, it becomes a symbol of the person who is remembered, creating an easily digestible memorial.  This exhibit paradoxically confronts the viewer directly with the subject. The resulting discomfort can be “jarring.”
