Michael Jantzen by Ann Wimsatt

Architecture always flirts with the higher art of sculpture, but in the contemporary conversation at least, sculpture is increasingly stepping across the line to try on a little architecture, usually as a dull box, sadly. Not so Michael Jantzen’s twisted pavillion of sliding palettes at Bruno David Gallery. Jantzen’s slatted sculpture presents a pulsating, off-kilter world–a pointed contrast to NY-based Free Cell’s poorly constructed 70s space frame next door.

Worth a visit.
