News > Review: Hollis Hammonds’ Worthless Matter

A whirlwind of found objects swirled through the exhibit space at Redux Contemporary Art Center on May 16 as artist Hollis Hammonds’ exhibit Worthless Matter officially opened to the public.

The art opening kicked off with a chat lead by the artist herself and was followed by an informal question-and-answer session. Hammonds explained that her massive in-air sculpture was inspired by her experiences with tornados growing up in the Midwest and by the series of devastating tornados that stuck the South and Midwest in 2011.

The piece itself is composed of an amalgamation of found objects, most of which were picked up on the very streets of Charleston. It took Hammonds three days (and dozens of trips up and down a ladder) to create a structure specifically fitted to the Redux Studio.  Together, the mass of objects that composes Hammonds work is carefully arranged and hangs from the studio ceiling in the shape of a cyclone.

If the sheer stature of the work weren’t already impressive enough, Hammonds’ explanations of the piece offered new weight to the importance of her work. This exhibit is a thoughtful meditation on consumerism, destruction, beauty, and restoration. While the materials that compose Hammonds’ piece may be worthless, the visionary scope of this artist’s work is anything but.
