Marguerite De Ponty: Yum!
I found myself smiling, absorbing and even entering into the work at times. When a sensorized tongue popped out of a crudely made hole in the wall I found myself giggling and wanting to repeat the action. On the 2nd (and last floor on our trip) floor large reflective cubes have been digitally printed with various objects. I was intrigued by the choice and size proportion on the objects (shown 360 degrees) while my friend was hunting for the possbility of narrative.
In the end we determined that the art might be just about space, and whether outer or interior space, that’s all right by me.
Urs Fischer: Marguerite de Ponty, is on view at the New Museum until February 7th, 2010.
