Mark A. Rodriguez. “Search. Connect. Move. Review” March 21st – April 26th 2015
At 5 Car Garage, Rodriguez displays old and new inventory of lamp sculptures, memorabilia works, and table parts. Large-scale vinyl tarps printed with images of American cityscapes are hung to cover three walls, serving as a backdrop to a seemingly mass-manufactured tableau that addresses the aesthetic and scale of the space. The backdrops allude to financialized and inexhaustible cycles of industrial production while ushering the space into the realm of some fictionalized, general or home goods warehouse.
