The Shape of the Problem II: 30th Anniversary Exhibition

RICHARD SPEER
Friday September 30
Elizabeth Leach Gallery
417 NW 9th Ave.
 
The most delightfully outrageous work in this 30th anniversary group show is Malia Jensen’s saucy, cheeky, and borderline creepy digital video installation, Salty. In the video, Jensen places a breast-shaped salt lick in the middle of a pasture. Warily, cows approach the white object, then take tentative licks, then crowd together, licking the nipple and gentle curves, as many as three cows at a time. There is something perverse and downright pornographic about this. The salt licks themselves are also displayed and offered for sale. You may buy one of them for $8,000.
