If you haven’t had the chance to get to evergold the last few weeks, get over there quick before Mauricio Ancalmo’s show goes down in march.
It is a must see if you have ever played Pétanque in golden gate park with Paul Kos…or not.
The work in the show is very conceptual, but at the same time super approachable and modest. It is all inspired by our very own golden gate park, so if you have ever rolled through on your bike, enjoyed a picnic, or done anything else in the park, you will feel some sort of connection to the work.
There is a great piece with the waterfall in the park flowing backwards, the ground in one room has grass, while another has sand. The small room with sand is somehow able to give you the same feeling you have while watching the tides from ocean beach. This would be a great traveling show, it radiates the park life.
Pétanque ball markings, probably made during a game with Paul Kos, as the title tells us.
Pieces of the park preserved and cataloged. Is the park going somewhere?
The show runs until March 1st @ Evergold Gallery
