Amid the many paintings by British artist Chris Ofili currently on view at the New Museum in New York is this amusing, visceral little sculpture tucked away in a small stairwell nook. The piece is titled “Shithead” and is made from the artist’s hair, teeth and elephant dung. (Shit, literally.) The artwork is part of an imposing career-survey exhibition of Ofili’s work called “Night and Day.”
Korean artist Yoon Hyup recently had a mural on the wall at the Rag & Bone Jean flagship store in Nolita, in downtown New York City. Rag & Bone has devoted the wall on the Elizabeth Street-side of its shop to showcasing art, with artists putting up new work every two or three weeks. Love it.
