High-concept bird's nest
In the middle of Samuel Freeman Gallery's glass-walled, oddly shaped courtyard, Claude Stracensky Collins has installed a square, wooden column topped with a tinted glass box, filled with water, with a pine-needle bird's nest floating in it. The sculpture is part of "Black Rabbit, White Hole," a group show of mostly monochromatic art curated by gallery director Amy Thoner. The show also includes Emilie Halpern's transfixing 2006 video For No One, playing on a small television monitor on the floor of the last room. In it, a single tear, so crisp and defined it looks like glass, rolls down the blurred cheek of a woman whose smeared mascara makes her eyes smoky. 2639 S. La Cienega Blvd.; through April 6. (310) 449-1479, samuelfreeman.com.
Tuesdays-Saturdays. Starts: March 2. Continues through March 30, 2013
