Cynthia Lahti: Elsewhere

Tuesday May 21
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.
