Nimbus D'Aspremont

Mercer Union always produces excellent shows. Their current, very well curated Red Sky At Night is no exception.  Featuring Absalon, Heike Baranowsky, Jack Goldstein, Cao Guimarães & Rivane Neuenschwander, John Massey, Jonathan Monk, Bruce Nauman and Berndnaut Smilde, the Sarah Robayo Sheridan curated show centers around environments - both exterior and interior.  Smilde brought clouds indoors by using water, smoke and spot lighting and created a physically tangible sculpture, whose short-lived occurrence was made permanent by the photographic decumentation Nimbus D'Aspremont. I love the ambiguity of outdoor/indoor, especially with the blue background wall.
