This is All That Was Left

November 14, 2016 - February 3, 2017

FREE

The Columbus Museum of Art+Design is happy to present a new exhibition at Hotel Indigo. This is all that was left  will open Monday November 14, 2016 and continue through Friday, February 3, 2017. Details about a closing reception are to come at a later date.

For visual artist, Paige Mostowy, stories are the artifacts from her family’s past, rather than objects or place. Stories are constantly fluctuating and are passed down from person to person until finally those pieced together histories became truths. Mostowy’s work resides in a space where nostalgia is intertwined with misremembered instances embedded within a persons’ history. Creating reconstituted timelines through physical alteration of banal domesticated items, this body of work represents not only a severed history but also represents a potential for renewal.

Transplanted from the North and raised in the winding suburbs of the South where the illusions of closeness were as abundant as kudzu overtaking the side of the roads and abandoned farm houses. Juxtaposing traditional methods of mending while subsequently rendering objects useless, Mostowy’s practice explores these futile notions of memory and perspective rooted within familial despondencies. She received her BFA from the University of Georgia in 2010 and her MFA in Sculpture from Indiana University in 2015.  She has shown both nationally and internationally with solo shows in Chicago, Georgia, Indiana and has most recently completed the Stuart Artist in Residence Program in South Dakota.
