Opening Reception: Saturday, May 9 from 6pm to 10pm

You’re invited to the opening reception for Apoptosis, a sculptural exhibit by DC-based artist and scientist Peter Krsko at The Fridge. Krsko will transform the gallery space through a large-scale installation composed of repurposed lumber collected during the artist’s recent explorations throughout the metro region and beyond.

Krsko relates the process of developing his sculptures to the natural scientific process known as apoptosis.

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…”
