Marilyn Waligore creates images using reclaimed aluminum forms to develop new sculptural structures in an absurd comment on the potential possibilities for the reuse of post-consumer waste. Her work in Post-Convenience forges a link between photography and sculpture and reflects on our societies complex relationship with consumption. The artist collects her aluminum objects during walks through her neighborhood, seeking materials with characteristics that resist manipulation, yet remain malleable. Waligore presents her images in a high-resolution format, often found in product photography and portray objects as something of value. Post-Convenience emphasizes an embrace of conservation, and compels a reconsideration of our daily habits and their global impact.
Marilyn Waligore is Professor of Aesthetic Studies / Photography at the University of Texas at Dallas, where she directs the photography program.
