My preview of the Whitney Biennial for Interview.
It’s opening on Thursday, and I highly recommend you go see it, not least of all because it features a film installation by Werner Herzog on Hercules Seger, a little known 17th century Dutch artist who was renowned for his eccentricities. (Werner, will you ever disappoint me?)
Organ music and a 6,000 square foot performance space, where a woman wearing a horse head wanders in a white-walled, concrete-floored pasture. A film series and ferromagnetic liquids alive and writhing on a plastic sheet. For those of you who are hipster film nerds, screenings of both Old Joy and Wendy and Lucy. The inclusion of theater, music, cinema, dance, and live performances along with more traditional mediums. It’s the best Whitney Biennial I can remember seeing.
