I’ve been meaning to write about “We Buy Gold,” an installation by Stephanie Dodes and Marshall Korshak at Allegra LaViola, for weeks, but haven’t had the time. And now it’s closing on Friday.
Caleb and I went to the gallery for a dinner one night, and spent a while lounging around the piece. Basically, it’s composed of multitudinous swaths of fake fur, which cover the floor and walls. You have to take your shoes off before you walk around on it, but once you do, you kind of feel like Barbarella in her naughty pad, only more ethically conscious.
There are three rooms showing videos, all of which are pretty trippy. Like, if I were a drug user, I would probably go back there and do drugs. But I’m not, and I still enjoyed watching the hip hop dance music video—featuring some badass bitches from Brooklyn—completely sober. I might ride my bike over there, and do it again this afternoon.
