In Giovanni Anselmo’s Untitled (Structure that Eats) from 1968, a head of lettuce is pinned between two blocks of granite and held together by a copper wire. As the lettuce wilts, one of the blocks begins to fall. The sculpture is on view through April 21 as part of Ileana Sonnabend: Ambassador for the New.

SHE—A Cathedral, the 1966 collaborative installation by Niki de Saint Phalle, Jean Tinguely, Per Olof Ultvedt, and Hultén himself that unapologetically hijacked the Moderna Museet, where Hultén was then director. Daniel Birnbaum (recently named director of the Moderna Museet) describes the work as “a gigantic, lurid cathedral in the form of a supine woman that viewers could walk into, the entry being between her legs. Inside, visitors found an aquarium full of goldfish, a love seat for couples, a bar, a small cinema showing a Greta Garbo movie, a playground with a slide, and many other surprises. Green and red lights controlled the traffic through the vaginal entrance.”4 As Benjamin remarked, to return to the opening gambit of this text, “The threshold must be carefully distinguished from the boundary. ASchwelle [threshold] is a zone.”5 Not only did the visitor’s encounter with SHE—A Cathedral involve crossing a threshold and entering the sculpture (and here we might recall that Benjamin’s words appear within the context of a discussion about erotics, lovers, and prostitution), but that project also rejected the boundary between artworks and “related programming.”” – from The Exhibitionist #2
