South of the Tracks is pleased to present for its inaugural exhibition, Greetings From Under The Table, featuring new works by Chicago-based artist Caroline Gohlke. In her first solo exhibition, Caroline Gohlke utilizes consumer products and found ephemera to create sculptures to de-contextualize past memories. In pulling apart and placing these points of life under the lense, Gohlke examines the fallibility of perception and ones ability to distort memories to suit personal needs. Through the cracks in these memories appears the spectre of a figure, dictating an identity of comfort and privilege, seeping violence and isolation.
Caroline Gohlke (B. 1991) is a Chicago-based artist working with a variety materials, creating sculptural and performative installations, which meditate on the fickleness of human perception and elusiveness of memory. Having recently graduated from Columbia College Chicago with a BFA in Fine Art, Caroline Gohlke has exhibited with The Storefront, C33 Gallery, Gallery 79, and the Averill and Bernard Leviton A&D gallery (Chicago).
