Vernissages | Reconstructing Deconstructed Dwelling NYC, September 13

Dwelling —or recreation of dwelling in a "hyper-reality" fashion— was the theme du jour of the Chelsea vernissages of September 13. Which leaves totally uninspired and wondering about the meaning of these extremely expensive installations. With the exception of the somehow pleasing patterns from Andrea Zittel's carpets.
