building multipli-city

SarahMorris Rio2

From Benjamin

I’m so inspired by finding the work of artist Sarah Morris, whose latest show is at the Petzel Gallery. Her subject matter, the rhythm, forms & identities of particular cities, (this time, Rio de Janeiro; others included Chicago and D.C.), and her media for inquiring into, and addressing herself to these – parallel works in film, and in paint-on-canvas – isn’t exciting only on account of those features’ inherent attractions. By showing us how a complex and variegated set of interests can be treated simultaneously, and ambidextrously, without losing focus, she opens up a whole set of possibilities for working across multi-media. A great object lesson for our (or at least my) ADD-prone life in design.
