Visiting Friends New Shows

by Wendy on October 09, 2011

Spent the weekend visiting a few friend’s exhibits. Saturday we went to Mike Stilke‘s curated show at LeBasse Projects called “The Future Is Not What It Used To Be”. He’d constructed one of his beautiful book installations near the entrance.


Another favorite of ours was Brian Dettmer‘s piece “Complete Book Of Marvels”.


Walking next door to Think Space Gallery we caught the tail end of a great show called “In The Wake Of Dreams”.  Always a fan of  Mari Inuki, especially her masked painting “We Are Not Who You Think We Are”.


Sunday we hopped over to the Beacon Arts Building to see new work from our friend Pontus. The last we’d heard from him he’d cut one of his fingers off. The prospect of seeing blood on his latest sculpture was too intriguing. Alas, although there was lots of broken glass, I was denied any gore. But we did love his new work!


Walking down to the other studios in the complex, we found a group show that had lots of surprises. Sound and video as well as big sculptural installations. Mark and I spent a good deal of time running around the space and admiring the work.


Most notable was a sound installation from Winter Jenssen.
