Dinh Q. Lê - The Scrolls: Distortion

Exhibition / United States
October 7, 2017 - December 23, 2017
Shoshana Wayne Gallery at Bergamot Station
2525 Michigan Ave, B1 | Santa Monica, CA 

The Scrolls: Distortion is a new body of work and a cumulative exploration of Lê’s oeuvre to date, putting his series such as Persistence of Memory, From Vietnam to Hollywood, A Quagmire This Time, and Remnants, Ruins, Civilization, and Empire in conversation with one another.  Key to this body of work is Lê’s attention to memory.  Whereas previously Lê’s work dealt with fragmented memory and processes of piecing together or reconciling painful and traumatic histories, here he is presenting memory as landscape.
