We are pleased to accounce Miranda Fengyuan Zhang 's artworks are showing at River Valley Arts Collective.
Both Mendelson and Zhang work with discarded materials, reclaiming the excesses of commercial production through deliberate studio processes. They begin with an act akin to foraging, exploring local and social spaces for material waste. Found materials are transformed in the studio using a combination of assembly and aggregation. Through their work, both artists probe what the detritus of a particular moment in history may reveal about its culture, people and history.
