Art & Design: Last Chance

Holland Cotter
The New York Times, April 2009

YOON LEE, JONATHAN SCHIPPER, TAVARES STRACHAN; closes on Sunday.

The Boiler, a new gallery that is a converted factory boiler room, is an annex to the pioneering Pierogi gallery in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, a few blocks away. Pierogi continues to have one-person exhibitions, most recently a superbly witty and timely one by the artist David Shapiro, who is surely Whitney Biennial material. But the Boiler opens new possibilities for large-scale projects, in this case a very large painting by Yoon Lee; a many-eyed surveillance satellite by Jonathan Schipper; and Tavares Trachan’s continent-and-climate-leaping “Distance Between What We Have and What We Want (Arctic Ice Project),” with a piece of North Pole real estate in a freezer. The Boiler, 191 North 14th Street, Williamsburg, (718) 599-2144, pierogi2000.com. (Cotter)
