The Green Show

 

continued

Other works exploring "green" as "nature" include Michelle Panars's Invasion, spread along the stairwell leading to the gallery's basement. Suggesting a swath of stegosaurus skin made up of wrinkly rosettes, the work consists of several dozen pads of layered leaves sewn together and allowed to dry into curls.

Downstairs are fifteen additional works, including a satin-hung room with painted Arabic calligraphy and headphones broadcasting a whispery Iranian poem, and a fifteen-minute loop of eight short films. In one, stop-motion dirt swirls into patterns. In another, a naked man makes himself a leaf-crown and runs through the woods. Stop-motion toy soldiers invade a kitchen and, in strict military formation, abscond with two comparatively huge jars of peanut butter and jelly, and then prepare a sandwich for their human taskmaster. There's also Verde: The Greening of Electrons, which features a breathy voice reading a poem with odd emphases and heavy pauses, as lines of text move portentously across the screen.
