The Robert and Elaine Stein Galleries and Wright State University are proud to present KRISTEN COCHRAN—GOALS. Kristen Cochran’s recent work explores the pleasures, absurdities, and banalities of labor and the symbolic implications of laboring. Her transdisciplinary work shape-shifts in the forms of sculpture, drawings, video, and installations, and is often composed of quotidian materials such as bread, clay, clothing, shirt pockets, and copper plumbing—materials used as they relate to the gestures, needs, and aspirations of human beings at work.
