VIDEO: a body of hours makes reference to mechanical devices as a way of immersing viewers in biological and natural forces that influence our understanding of the temporal. Dodd MFA candidate Caitlin La Dolce presents sculptural works that include the mediums of handmade paper, printmaking methods, steel fabrication, plastic waste, and mold casting to create a textured web of repeating images and patterns. In a body of hours, the blending of materials and use of replication coalesce into a cycle with an undeterminable origin or terminus. Through formal elements of fragility and material hybridization, La Dolce examines what it means to grow within the presence of toxicity, and the patterns that remain intact throughout that growth. Rather than the hours ticking away on a clock, these works investigate time as a concept to represent transformation. Time is birth, death, heredity, memory, light, dark: a body of hours.

Artist bio: Caitlin La Dolce is an interdisciplinary artist and arts educator originally from the Northeast Kingdom region of Vermont. Their work explores material memory, toxicity, and inheritance. They have completed residencies at the Vermont Studio Center and Arts 77 and exhibited across the United States including exhibitions at BCA Center, Athens Institute for Contemporary Art, Arrowmont School Sandra J. Blain Gallery, and The Chandler Center for the Arts.
