Art that'll give you whiplash

‘Troublesome’ exhibit to turn Quint into a funhouse

Some art demands attention to the point of involuntary quadruple-takes, so the show Troublesome—opening at Quint Contemporary Art (7547 Girard Ave., La Jolla) from 6 to 8 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 12—just might leave viewers with sore necks. 

Lee Materazzi's self-photograph, called "Sitting Under My Grandfather's Chair" (pictured), is a real head-scratcher. How did the artist suspend herself under the furniture? 

Through a weird mix of materials, ranging from velvet to mirrors to bubblegum, the artists' tricky arrangements will make the gallery feel more like a carnival funhouse. 

The group show runs through Feb. 23 and features sculpture, painting and photography by Materazzi, Robert Barry, Mel Bochner, Matthew Brandt, Johnannes Girardoni, Thomas Glassford, Katrin Korfmann, João Lauro, Finnbogi Petursson and Marcos Ramìrez ERRE.
