I saw the Rodney Graham show at the Art Gallery of Ontario yesterday. I'd been intrigued by his work since first reading about. He does video/film installations which are sorta high concept and super stupid at the same time. One of the main pieces is a looped video of him, dressed as two separate Victorian guys, one rich, one poor, and he kicks himself in the bum at the appointed hour. Another piece is a black and white film of a stove lement with cinnamon dust sprinkled on it ever so often and burning. Very cosmic. In another he reenacts the very first acid trip ever.

Anybody else seen it? Worried? I'm thinking of taking my mom next week.
