Kristen Morgin’s sculptures, composed mainly of clay, exert both beauty and loss, as her subjects appear to be unearthed or abandoned objects in varying states of ruin or decay. Morgin’s remarkable ability to conjure the textures of accessible objects—such as carved wood, rusted metal, and fabric—in clay emphasizes the complexity of the present by way of the past. Her works, which include Topolino (2003), an abandoned Fiat micro car, serve as memento mori of the 20th century’s material culture.
