Tchotchke Stacks

Nicole Klagsbrun Gallery is showing Tchotchke Stacks by Patrick Jackson. The exhibition will run from September 10th to October 23rd.
The works in this show are made of found tchotchkes, layered between sheets of glass and stacked to human height. All the objects are selected and arranged based on their scale, and ability to hold weight. Their subject matter is completely random and, for the most part, unconsidered. Materials are found randomly at very random places. The tchotchkes are arranged by the ability to hold weight. Strongest at the bottom and the most fragile on top. I was very nervous that I would make a mess of the exhibition by knocking over something with my purse.
