Randy Polumbo’s delightful Love Stream Trailer installation at Steven Kasher Gallery was one of our favorite exhibits of 2112, so what a special surprise it was to stumble upon Randy’s latest work in the midst of our very ambitious September 11th Art Crawl!

Polumbo’s pop up installation, Tunnel of Love currently resides in the space at 511 West 27th Street formerly occupied by the Paul Kasmin Shop (which is moving locations). That narrow storefront has been transformed into a reflective-surfaced  silver space whose walls and contents tend to disorient in the same manner as a carnival fun house attraction, and that is exactly the appeal. The Tunnel of Love  pulls you off of the street and immediately immerses you in a fantasy world where everything is source of wonder. People were literally freaking out in this place.

On display are several few Polumbo’s signature blown glass floral lamp sculptures, some of which look more phallic than others.

At the rear of the “Tunnel” are stacked silver fabric cushions that we also saw inside the Love Steam, where you can rest your feet and enjoy the visuals! Also, Selfies!

Randy Polumbo was at the installation on the night I stopped by (the exhibition had just opened the previous evening) and let me tell you, he is handsome like a movie star. I had the chance to talk to him about how much I enjoyed the Love Stream Trailer, and he was very nice and seemed genuinely appreciative that I already knew his art. What a cool guy!
