Lucy Skaer

RICHARD SPEER
Wednesday July 24
Yale Union (YU)
800 SE 10th Ave., Portland
 
Scotland-based artist Lucy Skaer traveled to Iowa to pick out large chunks of limestone for her installation at YU. The rocks were so heavy, she had to have them shipped to Portland in an 18-wheeler. The stones are strategically placed in YU’s spectacular, light-bathed exhibition hall, complemented by a myriad of brick-sized terra-cotta sculptures. Skaer is well known internationally, having represented Scotland in the prestigious Venice Biennale in 2007, and she works across a wide range of media, not only sculpture but also film, drawing and video. The YU show promises to number among the most memorable Portland installations of the year. July 19-Sept. 12.
