Deborah Mesa-Pelly, Carpet Grotto @ Honey Ramka

A pretty great exhibition of shag carpets with fake rocks on them that are projecting videos of real rocks. The carpet brought back childhood memories from the 80s of lying on a shag rug to watch TV, leading me to see the fake rocks as little children-rocks watching rock-TV. With the rocks combined with the bursts of fluorescent color on the shag carpeting and in the videos, the entire show suggests a tribute to HBO’s 80’s psychedelic kids’ show, Fragile Rock. As simplistic as a read as this might be, it made sense out of a rather cryptic but visually exciting show.
