as much as i loathe art openings, i managed to have a very nice time at one last night at the nicole klagsbrun gallery.

i first discovered artist mika rottenberg's work at the greater new york show at ps1 way back in 2004. her site specific video installation, mary's cherries, was one of the best things in the show.

her video work is mesmerizing, funny, odd, and absurdist...and the new work i saw last night is no exception. in her new video installation, dough, intricate machines balance great heaps of glistening dough, worked by a variety of uniformed women stuffed into tiny rooms and eventually risen with the aid of the allergy-triggered tears of a large woman.

see dough until 2.25.06 at...

i remember last summer when janet cardiff created one of her walks for central park. her long black hair was meditative, mysterious, calming and thought-provoking - it was one of my favorite art experiences that year. so you can imagine i was quite excited when i discovered this while browsing the other day.

christine j. brandt's rings are truly opulent displays of natural beauty. i first spied them adorning the models in the spring 2006 show for the fashion line doo.ri, but they've been written about quite a lot since then. i'll happily join the echo, because i've never really seen anything like them.
