WOAH Last-Look:
Tree House Down at Ibid.
The impending destruction of the 1908 building housing Ibid. is cleverly cinched through drywall cut-outs as in Christopher Orr’s "The Haunted Ebb" and Emanuel Röhss’ "Archical Intersect", where the bones of Ibid.'s storage room and the pliability of a layered armature lay bare. Similarly, Amir Mogharabi’s site-specific installation activates a temporal environment melding the infrastructure of the gallery into a material conduit for interaction. Closing Saturday, Sept 26th at Ibid. (DTLA).
