Michael Kareken examines the inner-workings of abandoned vehicles.

 

Minneapolis-based artist Michael Kareken paints autopsies of junked cars in his newest exhibition, “Parts.” Much like the mechanical innards that spill out of Kareken’s vehicles, the work of “Parts” has overflowed into two separate galleries. Kareken’s work is currently showing at Groveland Gallery, which hosts his paintings, and Burnet Gallery at Le Meridien Chambers Minneapolis, which hosts his charcoal and conte drawings. The joint exhibition is impressive in scale, and the different spaces lend diverse atmospheres for Kareken’s work to flourish.

 

“Automobiles consume a huge portion of our culture,” Kareken explains in a Burnet Gallery dispatch. “They’re so ubiquitous. I find these discarded elements resonate with me on a number of levels – as a symbol for society, but also for the human condition.”

 

The human element of Kareken’s work is one that doesn’t need much explanation. I found myself drawing the connection between the subject’s mangled inner-workings and human organs almost immediately. The disparate tubes of these long-forgotten vehicles lay like discarded intestines. The lifeless husk of a rusted vehicle has the same depressive slump as a dead body. Kareken paints more than just broken cars, he paints cadavers. “Parts” is on display through Nov. 26 at Burnet Gallery and Groveland Gallery.

On Friday, we welcomed a number of our college contributors to the Current’s studios. They’re the future of music journalism, and we’re very happy to have their writing and photos on our blog every week. If you are, or if you know, an undergraduate student at a Minnesota college or university who might be interested in contributing, please contact jgabler@mpr.org.

Jeremy Messersmith, John Munson, and members of Rogue Valley appear in a new video dramatizing what the musicians and the video’s producers see as the absurdity of a law requiring food revenue at some Minneapolis restaurants to greatly exceed revenue from sales of alcoholic beverages.
