Fair Weather Forces, by Germaine Koh

Fair Weather Forces, by Germaine Koh in Untethered

 

Our friend Germaine Koh was recently part of “Untethered,” a show at New York’s Eyebeam described by curator Sarah Cook as “a sculpture garden of everyday objects deprogrammed of their original function, embedded with new intelligence and transformed into surrealist and surprising readymades.” Germaine installed a water sensor at the nearby Hudson River, causing a velvet rope on stanchions to rise and fall in the exhibition space. The drama, a subtle one, thus somehow takes place in the lobby rather than the theatre. Interestingly, the river unexpectedly flooded on the night of the opening. We recently featured another piece from this show: Dead Star, an ovoid planet constructed entirely of dead batteries.

From we make money not art.
