The sculptures and photographs in Schwegler’s exhibition reverse industrial production, painstakingly recreating durable, mass-produced stuff into fragile, unique works of glass, porcelain and gold. Even when elevated to heroic new materials and placed on white walls and pedestals, the forms retain the aurae of their original surroundings and of the people who tossed them. Presenting transformations of consumer goods in unexpected materials, Schwegler seeks to create a new relationship between viewers and the mundane objects that she refers to as “intermediaries of human desire.”
