Smell Like You Mean It

Here are some images from Karl Schwiesow’s BFA show reception last week:

Karl himself, in piscatorial attire:

He walked up to one of his pieces, attached a small bellows, and began pumping with his foot.

Along the way to inflation, a few adjustments were made.

The crowd watched the emergence of a green silhouette.

Once the green silhouette was raised to its full stature, Karl produced a poem from his slicker, and read it (the title of this blog post is taken from the poem’s concluding line).

The poem was returned to its pocket.

The performance’s devolution was diligently recorded.

The bellows was used to deflate the inflatable.

Or perhaps the inflatable should simply be called the “deflatable” at this point.

And I’ll leave you with a few more images from the show, both populated an abandoned.
