Emergency Eyewash

Walking into the Conceptual art show, “Emergency Eyewash,” I was shocked when one of the pieces started moving. I had mistakenly assumed that the two figures standing in the first room were statues. As I began to move, so did one of the figures. Dressed in a green uniform of a park ranger with a beekeeper hat, the man walked the space of the room the whole time I explored the exhibition. We didn’t speak, but we were aware of each other’s movements. This performance work was juxtaposed with two dimensional pieces in which poetic phrases were stenciled on the paper in various colors. Designed by Carol Szymanski and Barry Schwabsky, this exhibition at tANJA gRUNERT explores the relationship between language and poetry through the works of poets ant artists.
