Caroline Woolard: Untitled (Column)

Caroline Woolard: Untitled (Column)


Turned cherry wood, poplar, (not included: glass form and blow mould), sections: 72 x 12 x 12 inches, 36 x 12 x 12 inches, 24 x 12 x 12 inches, dimensions variable. 2016-2018.

This sculptural furniture takes its shape from smugglers who took ancient columns away in sections. This project draws on the North American adoption of imperial motifs in the organization of social life and of social space on campus and invites the dismantling, smuggling, and reorganization of such motifs.

Caroline Woolard employs sculptures and online networks to study the pleasures and pains of interdependence. Woolard has co-founded barter networks and (2008-2015), the Study Center for Group Work (since 2016), (since 2014), and the NYC Real Estate Investment Cooperative (since 2016). Recent writing on her work has been published in The Brooklyn Rail, Artforum, Art in America, and The New York Times. Woolard’s work has been featured twice in the PBS / Art21 documentary series New York Close Up.
