Tom Thayer at Sculpture Center, Queens

Tom Thayer, Old Smelly Haircut, 2009.

To no one's surprise, the new group show at SculptureCenter in Queens, "Knight's Move," is a stunner. Uri Aran has done some strange, alluring whittling, Virginia Poundstone has built up a larger, drippier version of her gorgeous appearance at Harris Lieberman last year, and two videos by a gentleman named Tom Thayer have been tucked away in the basement. My favorite of the two just happened to be on YouTube. It's not quite the same seeing it in home: Imagine you're in the dark, narrow corridor of SculptureCenter's basement, watching it on a rickety old set for the full effect. Also not pictured: a set of handmade, life-size turtle sculptures hanging out in the empty spaces along that hallway, also made by Thayer. There's a ton of other great stuff in the show: well worth a visit.
