Dave Carrow:DC→3D

3 February – 19 March


Opening reception Friday, February 3 from 6-10pm

Marginal Utility is proud to present DC→3D, a solo exhibition by the New Jersey based artist Dave Carrow.

Dave Carrow has been a friend of MU and its’ predecessors since the beginning, & has exhibited with the curators previously. This is an opportunity to keep that relationship current. Included will be sculpture, hybrids of sculpture/ furniture, related objects, accessories, and photographs.

Carrow’s sculptural installation embodies a mindful approach towards found objects and assemblage that present a dialectic between past and present through the use of mass-produced tools, appliances and toys from the pre-digital age.

Printed images of an abandoned church turned storage space for a hoarder’s hoard (located close to the Susquehanna Steam Electric Station in Pennsylvania) point to changes in both the psychological and material lives of those living in the United States.

By teasing out the hidden wish images within styles of design and modes of private and collective living, Carrow allows these fading world-views to re-emerge and calmly resonate within our current crisis of digital oversaturation, planned obsolescence and 24 hour news cycles.
