Offering by Gregory Krum
Gregory Krum's ...Practice..., on view at the gallery for just one more week till Sunday, June 27th, has been reviewed by Vince Aletti in The New Yorker, available to online (now) and in the forthcoming print issue of the magazine.
There are pictures of gravestones in the snow, artfully decorated interiors, and what appear to be night skies dense with stars. But a series of twenty-four unframed color photographs hung in a grid across from these images brings the exhibition into focus. Collectively titled “Offering,” they’re shots of the coconut-leaf baskets of flowers and food left at various public sites in Bali as gifts to the gods. Seen from above, these colorful packages are a more exotic form of Irving Penn’s urban debris, but even more allusive and alluring. Through June 27.
