Good Citizen Gallery: Friday, 12 June 2009

Khara Koffel: later rather than sooner
Opening Reception: Friday, June 12 6pm - 10pm
June 12 - July 11, 2009

Khara Koffel pulls inspiration from personal stories, anecdotes, and memories creating installations using specific objects related to her past and present. These installations have included portraits of family members out of such diverse materials as paperclips, eggshells, and cocktail umbrellas. For Koffel, these materials carry a specific relevance to her own stories but remain approachable to a wide range of viewers. Koffel’s work speaks to the power of seemingly banal objects to spark a memory, recall an emotion, and tell a story. Her care and handling of these materials allow them to become aesthetically pleasing arrangements that invite the viewer into unique shared experiences.
