Decorating Loos was a show I co-curated in June 2010. The curatorial statement can be read here. My own entry was the text of one of my favorite novels written over 30 balloons inflated with helium. The artist statement carries the rest:
This work attempts to deprive the narrative of its linearity by dispersing it in three dimensional space and at the same time render its dependence on the temporality of it’s support: the helium balloons which will slowly deflate over time, condensing the text and rendering it unreadable. Through these disruptions, the work contemplates the nature of narrative and its relationship to identity.
