Len’s based artist Peggy Taylor Reid takes the viewer through a visual journey examining humanity’s relationship to objects and the environment. Conveniently packaged goods make up the bulk of food items we find in our grocery baskets and homes. Yet, few of us think about their purposes beyond visual stimulation. In Taylor Reid’s exhibition unContained, vessels used for packaging and storing food are emptied, flattened, encased in ice, attached to the walls like barnacles. All the containers are emptied. The milk bottles are encased in ice. Their intended purpose has been reversed. Instead of containing, they are being contained. The boxes are flattened, and their purpose of containing has been inverted. The plastic containers, attached to the wall, as if growing from it, create an eerie and beautiful shadow, a metaphor for the way plastics now haunt our environment. Altering these containers, she challenges audiences to look beyond the surface of the containers to consider the effects of consumerism, recycling, and waste.
