It’s getter warmer outside (kind of) which means we can all start partaking in those outdoor activites we gave up on while we were hibernating all winter. One of my favorite things to do on a nice spring day is head over to Chelsea and try my luck with a few art galleries.
Last weekend I went to see, amongst other things, Tony Oursler’s Cell Phones Diagrams Cigarettes Searches and Scratch Cards at Metro Pictures. As you enter, you are immediately confronted with a roomful of larger-than-life, animated cigarettes doing a slow burn.
The rest of the show does not dissapoint.
Other cool shows incuded John Water’s Rear Projections, a collection of perversely manipulated images from classic and contemporary cinema, and Izima Kaoru’s New Work, large scale photographs of Japanese models and actresses depicting thier own death fantasies in luxuroius designer clothes.
You never know what you are going to find when you are gallery hopping. Check out Art Cat for a more complete list. Happy Viewing!
