Oldenburg’s first solo exhibition in New York delves into contemporary society’s fixation on consumption, from the air we breathe and the shows we binge-watch to our smartphone addiction. She deftly transforms superfluous everyday objects into sculptural protests against capitalism’s spurious suggestion that new items will quell psychological strife. One particularly striking piece, Feeding Frenzy, is crafted from thousands of red tickets encased in resin and transformed into churning tendrils, perhaps hinting at the psychological machinations behind Hollywood, screen time, and escapist entertainment.
