re:Visions presents work from interdisciplinary artist Janet Orselli of Tryon, N.C. Orselli combines and assembles found objects and surrounding spaces transforming their meaning and the viewers' experience. Each object speaks of what it once was, its unique history, yet at the same time it becomes something new and unexpected. Orselli’s work requests a slower pace, referring back to a time when objects were cherished and made with care.
One hour prior to the opening reception, Orselli will give an artist talk in the form of storytelling from the point of view of her objects.
Janet Orselli, a Columbia native, was the 701 CCA Artist in Residence from October 2018 through January 2019. The exhibition will include work created during her residency.
