New York artist Jordan Wolfson has created two exceptional art events not to be missed. On show at David Zwirner in Chelsea, Wolfson has staged the ultimate poser, an animatronic “female dancing figure”. To view her, you must first call the gallery and make an appointment at which time you will get to experience her dancing, just for you alone,in a large mirrored gallery space. Developed with help of a major Hollywood special effects house, the scantily clad animatronic sculpture wears a witches mask and makes for an intense and unforgettable experience.
In another part of the gallery is a video installation entitled “Raspberry Poser”. There are few art videos that we find ourselves sitting through in their entirety, but Wolfson’s video (in which he stars) bounces you from the streets of New York to Paris, all with the leadership of a giant animated shape and a red-headed animated character. The images below capture the flavor of the video, whose extraordinary sound track, exceptional special effects and epic journey will leave you spellbound.Jordan Wolfson.
