Details:Elijah Ober’s solo exhibition brings together two ongoing bodies of work that center the lives of two species often regarded as pests—snails and squirrels. Ober engaging works centered on these creatures uncovers information about the lands on which we reside and the ways we utilize and relate to ecosystems and resources. CALCIUM presents two digitally animated videos depicting snails hunting for a key shell-health supplement: calcium. Inspired by a small snail crawling up his leg while in his 3rd floor studio, Ober became fascinated by the tenacity of this small creature. Through imaginary narratives, he explores their translucence and mutability, their hermaphroditic power, and their alchemical shell building. Your Future Ex Squirrelfriend is a collection of carved Styrofoam squirrels. While observing squirrels in his yard, Ober found in them a rich source of intrigue. He noticed their overlooked physical grace and their school-like behavior, appearing and disappearing like a hypervigilant superorganism. For Ober, these small creatures embody many dichotomies. They are brave and fierce, yet soft and small. They are cute, yet disdained by many. These sculptures show them in their most self-aware state: playful, diligent, caring, and mischievous.
