Kay Nine installation view at Deitch Proejcts

This is an installation shot from Ben Jones's current show at Deitch Projects, titled "The New Dark Age." As someone who has followed Ben's work (via Paper Rad and solo projects) for years, I had to note that Kay Nine has gone from being fabricated from painted wood to now being made of marble and brass! A good reflection of our current times. Here is a photo of mine (and related post) from his 2005 show at Foxy Production:

Richard Oliver Wilson installation

Currently running at Jack the Pelican Presents through February 9. From the press release:

Have a cup of tea, sit back on the couch and escape into the spectacular musings of the quaintly naughty Mr. Benn. The timely anachronism of Richard Wilson's mechanistic renderings of super-tech ideas points to Britain in an era when unassuming people lived in modest circumstances. ...It's a remarkably different world than our own. ...Or is it?
