Tomoo Gokita's new show, Champion Carnival, at ATM is one of those shows that I would have walked by but my partner-in-crime for the day wanted to check it out. Good call, Hammy. Gokita's faces are what took me in and spit me out. They reminded me of what happens during that actors' exercise where you stare at your partners face. Borders are crossed. Things get distorted. Freaky and wonderful all at the same time. The other thing I liked about the show was the gun pointed at abstraction. POW! I'm pretty sure that all the Yaleys I've met recently would be down with that.
Update: Some bloggers do a little research. Sometimes I'm not one of them. So, OK. It's not really an abstract. But still.
