Geez, how creepy is this thing, amiright? How many of you are thinking about The Gimp scene in Pulp Fiction right now? But really, this isn’t your garden variety fetish hood, but rather a work of art by Nancy Grossman (b. 1940). Snarl is a strikingly realistic sculpture created from patent leather, wood, paint, epoxy and zippers. On exhibit at Michael Rosenfeld Gallery in the Chelsea Gallery District.

Video Clip of the Week: “Graves” By Destroy This Place

Destroy This Place: Graves from Scott Allen on Vimeo.

OK, I am not sure if the protagonist (antagonist?) in this video is a mutant ‘Deer Man’ creature or just a guy wearing a Deer head mask. It does make difference in the way that you look at the clip, but ultimately it makes no difference in the way things work out. Anyway, I dig the absurd yet menacing indie flick Bag Head vibe of this high-concept-meets-performance video by Destroy This Place, a pretty rockin’ band from Detroit that channel  all of the best sonic aspects of The Flamin’ Groovies, The Posies and The Jam for their fun, anthemic song called “Graves.” Check it out!
