The sculptures in Simone Fattals exhibition Works and Days at MoMA PS1 appear freshly dusted off from an archaeological dig, artifacts or parts thereof wrested from history. The retrospective, curated by Ruba Katrib, is the artists first in the United States and presents more than 200 works including paintings, works on paper, and sculptures from the last five decades of Fattals production.
That the elements of Elaine Cameron-Weirs works are at once ruggedly utilitarian and impossibly arcane is one of her brilliant conceits.
