Two Heads are Better than One Exhibition at The Hole, NYC
I can't be sure how many times I've walked by The Hole Gallery on the Bowery in the East Village, but this time was different- through the door, I saw a giant hanging doughnut with pink frosting and sprinkles. Needless to say at that point the exhibit called "Two Heads are Better than One" became a must visit. Part of me immediately wanted to try and jump through the homage to Homer Simpson like a hoop, another part of me wanted to swing on it like a tire swing. I'd like to think that's what artists Theo A. Rosenblum and Chelsea Seltzer were tempting me to do.
As I delved further into the gallery, I found works of art that would best be characterized by a recently popular Will Ferrell quote, "No one knows what it means, but it's provocative- it gets the people going." Boring paintings of beaches were framed with knives and detailed with vomiting dolphins, and otherwise traditional statues were complimented with blood exploding from their severed heads. It was one of the most entertaining times I have recently had at an art exhibit. If you're in the East Village in the near future, be sure to check it out. The show runs until March 17th.
