Queen of Peace – Volitant
Oy! Where to begin, where to begin? Sensory overload. I know the gallery is a large space, but that doesn’t mean you’ve got to fill it with everything you’ve got. After seeing everything once, my brain kinda just shut down. I didn’t even break it down into groups, it was just one big blur. I know there was a video playing in the back room and the side gallery focused on some very large, very explicit images, but nothing else stands out. I’m not confident if I even understand what was going on. BAD
The Singer Sucks, But… – MASS Gallery
I only caught the second half of the show. But the experience was wonderful. Sitting down, not worried ’bout hogging a set of headphones or standing in someone’s way. Who would’a thought that screening videos in a theater would be so successful? GOOD
Popular Hallucinations for the Home – MASS Gallery
I could see the connection between Michael Berryhill and Virginia Yount. Berryhill’s laser lines zipping around like the Tron lightcycles and objects’ shadowy residue, like a jump in hyper space are kinda sci-fi. As are Yount’s piles of computer trash as they begin to form computer rendering polygons. But Mira Dancy’s still-lives weren’t mixing well. The text in some of the paintings related more to the writing of Karen Davidson. I sez that only as a description, because I can’t remember what was written by either individual. NOT BAD
I’ll tell you ’bout what I sees.
