By Yeon Jin Kim Curator: Joel Carreiro October 7-29th, 2010 The LAB (for installation + performance art) is pleased to announce their October show, All Intellectual Animals are Dangerous is a multi-media installation offering the viewer a more intimate experience than usually found with public art projects. The windows of the gallery will be whited-out except for several small apertures, which will reveal various room interiors constructed out of paper and graphite, depicting an array of characters and events. Like Hitchcock`s Rear Window, each opening will give the audience a glimpse into different lives, however in All Intellectual Animals are Dangerous some rooms are inhabited by animals, some by people and one by an enormous spider. They are all presided over by a giant ?Alice in Wonderland? ?like character. Several of the interiors are small and present intimate, three?dimensional static tableau, and in a scale jump, two of them open onto larger spaces with narrative video projections, which are made by filming paper and graphite models. Passers-by may experience the piece as a cross between the viewing holes cut in a construction wall and the window displays on Fifth Avenue at Christmas time. On the busy streets of mid-town, this piece provides a voyeuristic experience of a fantastic realm populated by unusual and anthropomorphic creatures, all governed by a dream logic.
