terence koh – formerly known as asian punk boy – blew us away with nothingtoodoo, one of the most intimate and minimal show on display at this moment at the chelsea galleries. once you pass beyond the white curtains at mary boone gallery, you are facing a perfectly styled, huge pile of rough salt crystals. the artist, dressed in white, is on his knees and making rounds in a humble, meditative manner. a moment of introspection, in shrill contrast with the art market tornado about to take off on manhattan. on display till march 19th.
check our flickr for more images.
ps: to stay in the minimal/meditative style, don’t forget to drop also @ matthew marks to see ellsworth kelly’s reliefs from the last 2 years & @ pace galleries for donald judd & tara donovan.
