[Top 10 of 2008] #8 - Martin Boyce and Ugo Rondinone: We Burn, We Shiver at SculptureCenter

Installation view of We Burn, We Shiver, at SculptureCenter

We Burn, We Shiver, we're told the show is called. There's a replica of a nineteenth century fireplace, singed with smoke from a fire. A hand print is embedded in one wall. A mobile and a web of neon lights hang above, dark homages, perhaps, to Alexander and Flavin. It felt like we'd arrive just after the end of a performance, left only with beautiful, scattered detritus.
