The very lovely director Mlle Nicola Vassel gave us a brilliant tour of the current two extremly different shows at Deitch Project Soho spaces.
Ryan McGinness new works are florescent technocoloured silkscreens of icons, interlaced and layered upon each other, echoing the noise of the everyday and technology. McGuinness designs his own icons, ranging from people, to calculators, to arrows, trees, etc.
I especially like this green one, the 2D icons layer and grow into a very naturalistic organic feeling techno – landscape.
The lower level was an experiential installation, tondos painted with night-glow paint, exhibited under black lights.
The Ken dolls are subject to various forms of torture, which is captured on mini cameras and projected in real time on the monitors.
