I went to the opening of (former CBA workspace resident) Yoko Inoue‘s installation at Smack Mellon on Saturday. It’s a fantastic, overwhelming accumulation of thousands of hand-cast ceramic hybrid objects that mimics the visual clamor of a marketplace. You should go see it if you’re in NYC. I might have to go again, as it’s the kind of installation where you’re constantly finding few things to look at. My favorites are the fuzzy cat masks, followed closely by the the sad bunnies in the corner.
