Cheri Reif Naselli

Show ran from 9/1/2013 to 9/21/2013

Join us for our Opening Friday, August 30 from 6-9 pm

Naselli’s installation and performance, Accumulations, investigates the propensity for accumulating more and more stuff in our lives to the point of there being entire businesses to store that for which we no longer have room.  She investigates and questions, through her own experiences, how these objects obtain such value and why we continue to accumulate more. Do these objects represent our past? Do they hold our memory materialized? By accumulating more are we suppressing our own mortality? Does acquiring and owning these objects fill a need or give us value? And when these objects become an albatross and burden, how difficult is it to let go of them?

Cheri Reif Naselli will be creating her performances at the gallery every aftertoon from 1-4pm during the exhibition.  There will be no performances on Sept. 7, 12, 13, 14, and 15.
