There’s a closing reception tonight for Animal Year, a lively exhibition of about 250 fabric pieces that Jacob Berendes made daily in 2004 and 2005. Some of them are stuffed animals – the artist’s preferred term – some of them have qualities of stuffed animals – a plush crucifix, a staring cassette tape, a coquettish bottle of Windex – and some are scrappier than that. It’s hard to pick favorites, though Berendes expressly instructs you to. The one that looked like a yeti’s severed thumb? The “Cute Little Watcher”, a moss green square made on Christmas? The foam rubber Keith Haring baby? “Burning Building with Lawn Feet”? The muscly ghost, arms crossed like a nightclub bouncer? Spend some time with this one. It’s fun.
