Chris Sollars: Castaways
For Chris Sollars, whose work has often incorporated or called attention to refuse, a residency at the dump has provided access to an unlimited supply of materials and inspiration for video and sculptural works. While at Recology, Sollars has turned cast off objects and scavenged garments into outfits, tools, and sets for imagined worlds. Wearable sculptures utilize backpack frames that support unusual cargo, and a series of double ended hand tools transform axes and shovels into humorous, existential dilemmas.
