    "Junk Kaleidoscope" is the second iteration of an ongoing project* in which Mack reshuffles current and past work in response to memory, place, and viewership. Animated by a curiosity about the particular in the everyday, Mack’s sculptures are ecumenical in their sources, materials, and techniques, many of which are inspired by the categories of state fair craft competitions. She remakes found images and narratives into works that crystallize an abiding interest in the absurdity and truth found in the American vernacular. These unfaithful copies reveal how our collective ability to (mis)remember can become a creative, strange, and distinctly contemporary act.

    *The initial version of "Junk Kaleidoscope" was presented at The Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum in Ridgefield, Connecticut in 2017, curated by Amy Smith Stewart.
