Agathe Snow, at James Fuentes.
They're like mobiles... everything is suspended from curtain rod axis, hanging from the ceiling. James Hyde once referred to the mobile as a "ruined genre".... loved that.
These pieces are each based on individual fables by Leonardo da Vinci... I don't know any of the fables but wished that I had... very much enjoyed the sense of (backstage) theatricality and invention. It felt like a rich full magical narrative was mid-suspension.
