"Past Present Future: Connect": Emily Counts
On North Camden Drive, a block from Rodeo Drive, Garboushian Gallery has installed an exhibition perfect for the neighborhood -- archaic objects are glazed, over-produced and presented as novelties. But Emily Counts' sculptures of fax machines, rotary phones and boxy computers made of wood, ceramics, porcelain and resin are perhaps eerier than any of the wares in surrounding Beverly Hills storefronts. Press a button on the computer keyboard and a primitive white mountain of squares and pyramids appears. Hold down the clicker attached to the fax machine that has shiny black resin dripping down all its sides and a fairytale tableau lights up inside.
Mondays-Fridays. Starts: May 14. Continues through June 16, 2012
