LA COUR DES MIRACLES (THE COURT OF MIRACLES) by Joey Kennedy Wood Street Galleries Pittsburgh, PA JULY 11-SEPTEMBER 7, 2014
The Wood Street Galleries are an extreme art destination! They are located on the 2nd and 3rd floors of a wedge-shaped building and the only way to access them is via the old elevator. I began on the 3rd floor and winced at the volume emitted from these Terminator-gone-artsy forms. Intense is the best way I can describe this exhibit of motorized forms. They slither and scream and appear to follow your movement around the room (or do they?), and they activated every RUN part of my lizard brain. The gallery attendant asked if I had been to the 2nd floor? When I responded no, he said he had to activate them, so he would accompany me there. While in the elevator, I commented that the piece on the 3rd floor was really loud, to which he calmly replied, "Oh, this one is louder."
