The "Revenge of the Kitchen" series pairs kitchen shelf items with companion books. Like Marie Curie’s laboratory, we wonder what is really happening in the kitchen: Burning? Freezing? Poetry? Color gone crazy? The quiet shelves seem touched with hysteria. Building and photographing of these assemblages is a kind of archaeology, saving what might be thrown away and telegraphing the messages they may contain.

Charlotte Nekola’s work appeared at The New Era Gallery in Maine, Philadelphia City Hall, Conveyor Print Space in Hoboken NJ, the ETS Center in Princeton, NJ, and on-line at the Manchester Guardian in London, among other places.
