Art In America

K8 Hardy

at Reena Spaulings,
165 East Broadway

Charmingly ramshackle, stick-figurelike assemblages, constructed from bits of wood and detritus found on the beaches of Fire Island—a bra strap here, a novelty foam rubber fist there—make up the bulk of K8 Hardy's latest outing. Presiding over it all is Ur-Selfie, a The Origin of the World-style self-portrait in which an iPhone photo of Hardy's naked crotch is re-photographed with an iPad and finally again on film.
