Read more about Peter Krsko’s exhibition, Apoptosis here.

Krsko relates the process of developing his sculptures to the natural scientific process known as apoptosis. During this process, cells sacrifice their own life in order to create gains for the greater good. Similarly, in larger structures, cells and organisms are destined to die in order to improve the overall functionality of the systems they support.

Krsko says, “Each piece of wood started on a sunny slope as a living and breathing being. It was then selected for a new purpose – to provide warm and comfortable shelter in a modern city. I bend and reassemble these construction materials so that they shift from manmade, sterile squares into new, organic forms. These new shapes mimic the twists and curves commonly found in nature. The old building blocks, situations and knowledge must be destroyed in order to construct new ideas and viewpoints, again and again…”

The Fridge is located on in the rear alley behind 8th Street SE, Barracks Row, between E and G Streets SE . For more information visit www.thefridgedc.com.
