Cynthia Lahti: Elsewhere

RICHARD SPEER
Wednesday May 15
PDX Contemporary Art
925 NW Flanders St.
 
In Elsewhere, Cynthia Lahti combines ceramics with pages from old books, photographs of the circus, party favors and mass-produced figurines. By cobbling these objects together, she aims—not very successfully—to evoke common memories from the well of the collective unconscious. She made these works last year during a residency in Berlin, and indeed, with their marriage of abstruseness and decadence, they exude a decidedly Eurotrash sensibility. They withhold just enough meaning to make you feel cheated and allow just enough to make you feel cheap. Through June 1.
