Dan Pillers: Fuel for Thought

RICHARD SPEER
Tuesday July 23
Cock Gallery
625 NW Everett St., No. 106
 
A play on words lies at the root of most of Dan Pillers’ sculptures, most of which are concerned with gay identity. About Time shows artist mannequins holding hands behind a sheet of Plexiglas imprinted with two skeletons. The piece is about gay marriage, triply referencing the phrase "It's about time!", the wedding vow “till death do us part,” and the reality that only a few years ago, many people thought they’d be dead before same-sex marriage gained acceptance. Pillers creates these politically resonant works from a combination of wood, Plexi, fabric, bone and metal. They have the look of scientific display cases, reliquaries or Victorian birdcages. Through July 27.
