I wasn't too moved by anything in the front rooms of Mona Hatoum's new show at Alexander & Bonin, BUT the installation in the back room was slammin'. Creepy and dreamily beautiful, this one. Made me want to listen to Muslimgauze (Always a good sign.). Plus, it smelled good. I couldn't figure out if it was on purpose or not. It actually reminded me of Charlotte Westergren's brilliant fragrance installation at Bellwether three years ago. Mmmm.
