Open Furrows
Liz Chilsen
April 14 – May 26, 2023

ADDS DONNA is pleased to present Open Furrows a solo exhibition featuring works by Liz Chilsen including photography, ceramics, drawings, and video.

Images of the earth and objects made from the earth link multiple processes of making in Liz Chilsen’s exhibition, rooted in her deep emotional ties to the Driftless region of Wisconsin. Her photography and video works offer striking visuals of the beauty and drama of the region, as drawings and ceramics hold the memory of her hand and reference the histories of her forebears. Ceramic sculptures smoke-fired on the site of her ancestral family farm encapsulate memories and stories from the past. Liz’s installation presents processes that emphasize her dual identity as urban dweller and rural descendant.
