War and Other Remnants
October 7-December 1, 2016
Opening Reception: October 7, 5:30 -7:00 pm
Jarod Charzewski is an artist reflecting on societies’ multiplicity and redundant behaviors. His installations rearrange the recycled residual of mass consumption to show us who we are. War and Other Remnants sets “Military Carving by the Book,” Charzewski’s three soldiers made from recycled books on war, as guardians in front of a landscape of used clothing. The very active stance of these soldiers will protect yesterday’s bright and colorful purchases, as the rolling hills of wear and tear fill the Storrs Gallery behind them. This recycled “used” landscape is a recurring theme in Charzewski’s work and is referred to by the artist as “the geology of the new earth.” The used clothing will be donated from Goodwill Industries of the Southern Piedmont for the duration of the exhibit and returned after the show; the soldiers are on loan from the artist.

About the CoA+A Gallery System
The mission of the College of Arts + Architecture gallery system is to create lively forums in which the curious encounter the work of global, regional, and local artists through diverse media and dynamic exchanges that are nourished by the intellectual and creative life of the university. Our programming will echo crossovers of the visual arts, architecture, music, theatre, and dance inherent to the College of Arts + Architecture at UNC Charlotte. We seek to provide a haven for experimentation, to invigorate the environments we occupy, and to amplify the means to engage art and design in our community.
