Artist Martin Kersels is throwing a girl in a blue dress through the air in the photographs he installed in an empty lot along North Fair Oaks Avenue in Pasadena. He calls the project Tossing a Friend, and it’s part of the Armory Center’s ongoing offsite Roadside Attraction series. You have to know you’re looking for Kersel’s installation, a series of three billboard size images held up by wooden stilts and strung as an accordion style triptych. Otherwise, you could quickly drive by without noticing the Kersel’s dark-haired friend (the artist Melinda Ringer) flying straight up in one image and then out, in another. She looks light as air while Kersel’s, in a blue shirt and sunglasses, looks bulky but elegant.
