Artist Response:Lisa Lapinski

Lisa Lapinski is a sculpture and photographer from Los Angeles. A portion of her work is currently being displayed here in Minneapolis. The presentation started out with her showing pictures of some of her work and then talking about them. However, she did not talk about what they meant to her because as she put it "they lack meaning." This was an interesting thing for her to reveal because some of the pieces she showed had the Star of David and swastikas in them. She also read an email that she wrote to a critic who criticized one of her friends work for not having meaning. This was probably my favorite part of the presentation because she actual took the time to organize her thoughts and spell out what she was trying to say. A lot of the rest of the presentation lacked flow and meaning, she was somewhat hard to understand.
