Charzewski's installations are designed to evoke a viewer’s inherent connection to preservation by exploring objects and their ability to be tethered to attachments and the resulting compulsions. These collections of objects and the attention that is placed on arrangement mirror the installations created in our everyday lives through the inability to throw things away. Charzewski's work investigates the transferring of animate sentiments to inanimate objects. The value put on objects that we humanistically continue to collect give us pleasure. That pleasure gives comfort and that comfort lends itself to compulsion.
