Vlatka Horvat

RICHARD SPEER
Saturday January 11
Disjecta
8371 N Interstate Ave.
 
London and New York artist Vlatka Horvat fills the ever-invigorating Disjecta exhibition hall with an integrated show of installations and works on paper. The artist uses mixed media to create the impression of overlapping fences. She asks us to reconsider the idea of the cordon: What is it, historically, to be allowed or disallowed entry, whether it be to the fabled velvet rope of disco-era nightclub Studio 54 or, more sinisterly, through the Berlin Wall that defined the Cold War? Although the fences and barriers in this exhibition meander through the space, with miniature towers poking up within rubber-bandlike enclosures, the exhibition’s conceptual focus is refreshingly tight. Through Jan. 12.
