LVL3 presents, Where is the Reward, a two-person exhibition featuring Chicago based Jessie Darnell and Columbus based Morgan Rose Free. Free is breathing new life into objects found through anthropomorphic transformations creating alternative narrative structures and contexts. Darnell is also rewriting narratives by framing sourced imagery of call girls, plumbing books, and fetish letters in combination with materials associated with dominance and desire. The new bodies of work within Where is the Reward examine how Darnell and Free make material connections through assemblage and mixed media collage to discuss ideas around agency. Agency within the forms or figures they uncover and then establish as shiny new objects.
