Karen Kilimnik & Kim Gordon @ 303 Gallery







This duet of a show featured work full of implications about different aspects of performance. I was reading a book about magic when I saw this show last week so I couldn't help but make associations. The circle of black glitter feels ritualistic, as do the works on the wall that appear to be made of blood. Violent tendencies  come to mind when looking at the blood covered carving fork.  The show was curated in a somewhat odd arrangement, but was well suited for the nature of the videos (a band performing violently, snowy television) - it all seemed cohesive.
