"Sculp-chur" is a month-long group exhibition at Dimension Gallery that will be featured throughout the EAST Austin Studio Tour weekends. "Sculp-chur" is a “product line” that consists of one-of-a-kind small sculptures packaged to mimic retail presentation. Each piece is an original artwork presented as if it just came out of a snack vending machine.

Without lofty agendas, the show contemplates the modes of consumption for visual art. The exhibit likens itself to a conceptual convenience store. The show offers compact works, hanging in their packaging from hooks on peg board or even sitting in a glass faced soda fridge. The packaging communicates that the sculpture is clean and ready to go, anxious to be snatched off the rack and brought home for maximum satisfaction. It is a superfluous element that transforms the sculpture from a piece of art into a “properly” commodified product for that moment in time.
