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.
