Closing Reception: Close And Lost says
Join us for a discussion with the artists and a final look at "Close and Lost" by Lauren Wilcox and Meg Wolensky this Friday from 6-8 p.m. Lauren and Meg will respond to interview questions posed by Bunker's Jessica Rommelt and Anna Nelson, followed by a Q&A session with the audience and desserts.

See you Friday!


"Close and Lost" brings together artists Lauren Wilcox (Pittsburgh) and Meg Wolensky (Philadelphia) whose work both explores themes of intimacy and loss.

Wilcox's "Consumptive Passions" series creates a vision of the feminine through the build-up of layered images. By drawing on archived photos of "thinspiration", she explores forces of consumption as applied to the female body - digestion of food and of images of women's bodies. She also meditates on the consumptive nature of intimate relationships when they begin to take over a women's life.

Wolensky has collected her imagery for this series from her personal life, reflecting on a period of high stress and transition. The works in this show describe Wolensky's growing experiences of forming familial relationships with other queer women and reflect on a recent unraveling of a relationship. Working quickly with watercolor and snapshots, Wolensky weaves an intimate personal narrative that is unafraid to deny the audience resolution.
