Jumping through hoops

Like its title, "When the Skin Gets Pinched" feels delicate and dangerous. The collaboration between L.A.-based artist Davida Nemeroff and New York–based Cara Benedetto includes images of female high-jump champions in midair, draped over yarn, suspended in painted hoops or pinned to a pole. Then there are photographs of spilled blood, wrinkled bedsheets and hoops hung on their own, twirling. A blue sheet of cellophane on the far wall has text on it, describing intimacy as if it were a game. 418 Bamboo Lane, Unit B, Chinatown; through March 24. youngartgallery.com.
Thursdays-Saturdays. Starts: Feb. 25. Continues through March 24, 2012
