Koh projects > MAINstREetBUS

Insanely great. Germaine Koh is one of those artists that just keeps churning out amazing things.

I saw Self-portrait at the Ottawa Art Gallery in 2003/4 (?) and almost cried. Self portraits rarely have that effect on me, but the idea of all self-portraits layered onto one panel. Effing perfect. Sightings is funny and weird and makes my archive+collecting+travelling urges make a little more sense. Pledge (and other currency projects) is so simple and so smart, it frustrates the bejeezus out of me.

Yay for mid-career artists!
