The More Things Change Art Exhibition

Michèle Colburn’s work explores socio-political themes related to domestic terrorism, war, and the costs associated with both. A multidisciplinary artist, Colburn makes mixed-media objects with forays into endurance performance on the streets. Her two- and three-dimensional work incorporates gunpowder, spent bullet casings, and vintage surplus military trip wire. With a nod to Pop Art and notions of consumerism, these materials are transformed by the artist’s hand and process, rendered useless but retaining their associations and symbolism. In The More Things Change, the artist reflects on her upbringing during the Vietnam War and the current political climate, drawing parallels regarding leaders, violence, uncertainty, and conversely, the need for escape.
