Art was in every nook and cranny, as in this blurry picture of some of art on the ledges shows, as Kathryne Ford made her local debut. I was there on opening night, and the art turned a dark faux speakeasy into a fun land of fantasy.
And there was music.
I was especially moved by the telephone art, which reminded me of Salvador Dali’s surrealist telephone, but funneled through a new lens. Dali was writing about the shock of a new technology which, in the space of a few decades, went from novelty to ubiquitous. Ford is allowing a nostalgia for a life she never (really or barely) lived to create a new kind of playful dreamscape.
