If you’re in NYC, you have to see this show RIGHT NOW! Kessler’s Circus @ Deitch is definitely one of the first shows that has made me really want to stop, slow down, and really experience it.
First off, really loved the photographic images that accompanied the installation:
Analog, b+w photography, like hip hop, is not dead!
The exhibit is focused on the idea of the American war machine—filled with promises of everything and ultimately leading to nothing. He takes on a macabre version of Calder’s Circus, by inducing the viewer into his video taped schemes of both army men and observer.
