The Downtown Art Center (DAC) Gallery is proud to present a three-person exhibition of works by David Jang, Olga Lah, and Diane Silver.
Bound by themes of mortality, self-reflection, and environmental reorientation, each artist presents a unique catalyst to re-contextualize our surroundings.
Jang, Lah and Silver employ humble and innocuous materials in their works, objects commonly used and disposed of in our daily lives. These objects are then arranged en-masse to subvert their utilitarian purposes, and transform the space they inhabit. Via the mass-produced origins of their components, the works in this show impart a sense of time and speak to ideas of age and mortality. They offer viewers an opportunity to consider what our cultural values are, what our collective legacy may be, and bring us to rethink our relationship to reality.
