“Parasitic Gaps”

at Team Gallery,
83 Grand St., New York

"Parasitic Gaps" explores the work of four New York artists who are, in gallery director Miriam Katzeff's words, "involved in the practice of mating separates." Works created in loose collaboration between Margaret Lee and Matthew Higgs combine her seemingly domestic tableaux, in which, for example, a watermelon sculpture rests on a Design Within Reach chair, with Higgs's works pairing abstract paintings and beloved books. Two side-by-side videos by Georgia Sagri document performances based on field recordings from the notoriously gentrified Williamsburg neighborhood of Brooklyn. Paintings and sculptures by James Hoff explore computing culture: the canvases reproduce virus-corrupted images of white monochrome paintings, with new colors resulting from the infection. He also shows stacks of discarded, un-erased floppy disks that might give you ideas for home decor but are perhaps more interesting for their content: one of the visible ones is labeled with the name of accounting firm Ernst & Young.
