The Online Community for Culver City – The New Scene
In the October 17 edition of the Los Angele Times, Sharon Mizota reviewed the creepy new installation by Kristian Burford at Nye + Brown Gallery in Culver City, saying "You know the nightmare where you show up naked at the office? Kristian Burford has captured something of that horrifying feeling in his latest installation..."
After describing the work a bit, she adds:
Walking around these quasi-Minimalist cubes, one feels a like a voyeur, a sensation Burford has exploited in previous, more ornate installations in which the viewer’s point of view was more tightly controlled....
The works evoke the darker side of historical responses to industrialization — Hans Bellmer’s creepy doll parts come to mind — but they also suggest the infinite echo chamber of digital realms. At its far edge, the mirrored glass illusion begins to bend and distort, as if the entire scene could simply be whisked away.
