Volume Gallery presents Anders Ruhwald – 'The Charred Room' — Chicago, USA — 01 MAY, 2015
Volume Gallery, 845 West Washington Blvd., 3rd Floor, Chicago, IL 60607
Volume Gallery is pleased to announce its first solo exhibition with Anders Ruhwald – 'The Charred Room'. The works in 'The Charred Room' are the evidence of devastated domestic landscape rendered in a dream-like familiarity. Ruhwald presents us with softened ceramics that explore the duplicitous relationship humanity has with fire – a force both formative and formidable. Forged by flame, Ruhwald’s works take shape. Slumped, melted and morphed the objects lose their direct references that create comfort; leaving the viewer with renderings of domestic detritus vaguely familiar.
