After the After Party

After the After Party explores ideas of celebration and commemoration through found objects, sculpture, and installation. Using ephemeral party supplies such as leis and decorations, she draws on the tension between the anticipation of a celebratory event and its physical manifestation. Her work considers the elevation of these festive goods in contrast to the temporary nature of their materiality.

This work was shown at Roxaboxen Exhibitions from February 10-February 28, 2013 as a part of a two person show with Tom Costa. Roxaboxen Exhibitions, located at 2130 W 21st Street in Chicago, Illinois, is an artist run gallery and performance space located in the heart of Chicago’s Pilsen neighborhood.
