Highlights included Oz Malul’s sculptures– Rube Goldberg-like machines designed to advance a slide, or send a ball back and forth. They reminded me of Peter Fischli and David Weiss’ 1987
Large drawings by Alyssa Phoebus are dense, labored works: a mix of seams that resemble both scars and pinking shear cuts, of letter fragments and lines that simultaneously recall barbed wire and embroidery. With phrases like “Harder Harder” or “Rough Sex With A Big Man,” the works comment on our relationship with gender, sexual violence and sexuality.
Pictured are: Shoot the Moon, by Oz Malul, Way Down Under by Diane Wah, and Rough Sex With a Big Man and Good Woman by Alyssa Phoebus.
