Hot Art: Hirschhorn’s Challenging Vision

MARCH 11 TO MAY 29 It may not make you angry, but provocative Swiss artist Thomas Hirschhorn’s installation The Eye will definitely have you seeing red. The sprawling work at The Power Plant curates an almost overwhelming array of objects and images—national flags, stuffed animals, blood-stained mannequins and much, much more—connected only by their shared primary hue. What lies at the (red) heart of this immersive display and its frenzy of loose associations? That’s up to the viewer to decide. As the artist has written: “The eye sees but the eye does not understand.”
