show and exhibition

I went to see Whitney Biennial 2014. This is a show-case of American art now. I loved the festive atmosphere of Biennial. But I felt this year’s show doesn’t have enough festivity. It is rather scattered and haphazard. Among 103 artists who are selected for this show, I like Travis Jeppesen’s work. The piece is too big and too sexual so I didn’t take photo. But his work has festivity and craziness. I also like Channa Horwitz’s work and Elijan Burgher’s work. Horwitz’s works are very cool. She made some mathematical formula to apply her painting. Burgher’s work, Bachelor machine, from behind and below (Guyotat version) is lovely small piece. Because colored by color pencils, it’s accessible in spite of its serious subject matter.
