Photo-based artist Jacinda Russell will be having a reception this Sunday for Strange and Mundane Objects, her show at Reed College’s CaseWorks Gallery. Russell’s latest body of work begins with photographs of bizarre objects from her personal collection—a cactus in a glass bottle, a set of dentures, a bowling ball with a skull in it, a chipped off piece of the Taj Mahal. The photographs are printed on canvas and then mounted to the inside of wooden shelves and boxes, turning them into self-contained photo-sculptures (and also into small coffins, in a way). She can explain it much better than I can, though, and she will, this Sunday, June 3, at 4 pm, Reed College’s Eliot Hall, Room 314. The Cooley Gallery is closed for the summer, but Strange & Mundane will be up through July 15.
