Unraveling the Apparatus

Detail of Perpetual InterfaceEli Kessler

October 19–December 3, 2021

Eli Kessler approaches sculpture as a way to examine particular artifacts, rituals, and cultural phenomena. Within his process, ideology and iconography are cut up, rematerialized, and arranged in an attempt to find meaning. His work has led him to investigate methods such as metal fabrication, woodworking, video, casting, and digital fabrication. His work has been on view in Cleveland, Ohio; Philadelphia and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania; Newton, Massachusetts; Tyler, Texas; Washington, DC; New York, New York; and Venice, Italy. He earned a BFA from Tyler School of Art, Temple University, and an MFA in sculpture from Virginia Commonwealth University. Eli Kessler is currently an assistant professor in sculpture and expanded media at Kent State University.
