Kelly Richardson: Legion

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

I went out to see Kelly Richardson’s show Legion at the Albright-Knox Art Gallery in Buffalo, NY, and I wanted to leave that place and go home to find my favorite sci-fi books. The show is a walk through Richardson’s technological evolution and the content is a creepy warning of squandering natural resources, and yet the works are a beautiful celebration of the supernatural essence of the organic, the purity of life, the living presence. Plus it is moving images, in a dark gallery space.

I sat in the middle of the three channel works and wished I could fall asleep amid the pulsing electronic images. In my head, they are so cozy.
