The Ascent of Man
Saturday, June 1
Blackfish Gallery 420 N.W. Ninth Ave., Portland, OR 97209
"Portland artist Lauren Carrera will transform the Pearl District space into a faux natural history museum, complete with large scale dioramas and“scientific” specimens that honor our connections to the natural world and at times subtly poke fun at institutional authority.
The artist combines fine craft materials and found objects into beautiful and unsettling tableaux in works like the monumental “Nuclear Family”, which features life size mannequins representing stages in a human life." - Oregon Arts Watch
