Kriston Capps revisited the bubble at Project 4 Gallery and had this to say:
Bolt’s show with Hughes was predicated on a sort of Real World–esque question: What happens when the collector collects the artist herself? The tightly edited presentation with Barlow was both more polite and more real.
In this show that she calls Dealing, Agnes also exhibits the remnants of the distinctly different interactive performance project she executed over the summer with fellow art collector Philip Barlow.
That Capps thinks that a tightly edited presentation is “more real” than the real thing makes me realize how complicated the relationship between Agnes and me became and how difficult it would be to sum up neatly all of its meanings with a few objects. I suppose that’s the nature and difficulty of performance art.
