Born on the Slovak side of Czechoslovakia before the country’s 1993 split, artist Katarina Burin repeatedly returns to the architecture of Central and Eastern Europe in her work, here represented by concrete planters and curved sculptural works that resemble relics in both gravity and mystery. A creepy object—part gallows, part guillotine—is decorated with a squirrel, while benches feature cutouts roughly the size of a smartphone. It surely means something, but we’re left alone to invent a narrative. This is the fourth of five gallery exhibitions in PC–G’s Beyond Bauhaus series, highlighting contemporary artists inspired by the German art school on the centennial of its founding.
