"Before You Were Born"
Psychedelic Walk-In Installation
Radiant Space, Hollywood
"In West Hollywood, a doorman regulated a two-block line at Radiant Space. The reason for the wait: artist Laurie Shapiro’s walk-in installation, Before You Were Born, on view until February 3. A glittering textile-based mixed-media Aladdin’s cave, every surface was transformed by sewn and painted materials. Alien flower-like lamps glowed, foil covered the floor, a dancer—a painted artwork herself, moved through the exotic mix of rich palettes bedazzled with gold and silver, packed with hipsters and art lovers."
