Packed: Works by Nicki Crock (Deer Gallery & Chakeres Gallery)Sep 13–Dec 8, 2019 in Deer Oct 12, 2019–Feb 9, 2020 in Chakeres Gallery
This solo exhibition features a range of works from Columbus, Ohio artist Nicki Crock. Through installation, sculpture, and performance, she explores issues of home and community as well as the role of place and transformation. Having lived in one home for the majority of her childhood, it wasn’t until her later teen years that she embarked on a nomadic lifestyle, searching to recreate a sense of the familiar while also embracing the differences of each new domicile. Her art reflects this push and pull, evoking at once a sense of nostalgia while also suggesting the excitement of the unknown.
