Mamma Andersson, Behind the Curtain

Mamma Andersson's exhibition "Behind the Curtain" at David Zwirner was my favorite show in Chelsea last week. To say her work is inspired by film is an understatement, it felt like I walked into a film studio or a film. The figures are either looming gigantic totems or little sprites that that cast enormous shadows. The works on canvas don't hold a candle to this installation. If there had been chairs on this movie set, I'd still be there.
