Crappy Magic Experience by David Hellams
Opens Saturday, March 5, 6:00pm-9:00pm, and closes with a live auction on Saturday, April 2, 6:00pm-10:00pm.
The photographs in David Hellams’ Crappy Magic magazine are made during the artist’s routine trips to thrift store outlets, where surplus donated goods are sold by the pound from large unsorted bins in a warehouse-like setting. Some of the images evoke a celebration of endless variety and unexpected combinations, while others may provoke a feeling of repulsion. It’s tempting to imagine the mix of discarded things in the bins as a kind of seething pool that offers glimpses into the collective unconscious of generations of mass producers and consumers.
