Dinh Q. Lê: Fixing the Impermanent

RICHARD SPEER
Wednesday October 16
Elizabeth Leach Gallery
417 NW 9th Ave.
 
Vietnamese artist Dinh Q. Lê revisits the Vietnam War in a suite of stunning photographic tapestries. Lê uses photographic prints like strips of fabric or twine in tapestries or baskets, weaving them in and out of compositions that also integrate boldly colored linen tape. The images are often harrowing, as in Immolation in Additive and the Subtractive Colors, which appropriates an iconic photograph of Buddhist monk Thich Quang Duc committing suicide in 1963 by setting himself afire. That Lê makes this disturbing image so beautiful, via its palette of jewel tones and bubblegum hues, is a credit to his knack for conflating and confusing visual beauty and political awareness. Sept. 26-Oct. 26.
