Michael Zansky at the Roger Smith Lab Gallery in New York through March 27

I was walking along Lexington Avenue, headed toward Grand Central last week and I came across this installation by Michael Zansky at the Lab gallery which is part of the Roger Smith Hotel at 47th and Lex. Projects at the Lab are curated by D. Dominick Lombardi.
Zansky's installation is titled Strangelove and it will be on view through March 27. The work consists of a mannequin in a dress suit prone on a rotating stand with a large gilt looking brain-meteor-turd form strapped on its chest. Three of the large lenses Zansky often employs were installed in the space, two of which provided distorted magnifications of the mannequin's head as it slowly spun.
Had I been thinking, I would have taken a short video as that's what all the kids are into these days. Still photos are so 20th Century.
