Art In America

Jorge Pardo

at Petzel,
456 W. 18th St.

Known for blurring the boundaries dividing fine art, decorative art and architecture, Jorge Pardo, in this high-wattage exhibition of recent works, proves his prowess in all three areas. Opening the show is a giant blown-glass chandelier in modernist style, made for a cavernous dining room. The main gallery features a compact architectural space you can enter: a bedroom decorated with a colorful Plexiglas window and complete with a tiny bathroom. It conjures some futuristic mobile home. The Cuban-born, Mexico-based artist also decisively enters the fine-art realm here with a series of large, wall-hung printed-paper and wood constructions inspired by Native American masks.
