A Subtlety, OR The Marvelous Sugar Baby

Fisk and I went to see Kara Walker's incredible work of art at the soon to be demolished Domino Sugar Factory last weekend.  This installation was not only visually remarkable, but the smell of the sugar on the walls and in the air was engulfing.  The sheer size of the white sugar sculpture was amazing to see, and nearly impossible to comprehend how such a work could have been made.  The melting and distorted bodies of the child sugar sculptures were grotesque and captivating.  It's works like these that make me feel so grateful to be living where I am. 

This work is up for one more weekend, so if you live near Brooklyn, you should check it out this Saturday or Sunday. For more details
