‘Enfold’ by Harry Roseman: Are Those Curtains or Black Tape?

NEW YORK—It’s amazing what you can do with the visual equivalent of black tape. Harry Roseman has created what appear to be several panels of window drapes.

“Enfold,” his site-specific installation at Nancy Margolis Gallery, is a series of black lines painted directly on the walls of the small gallery space. (Some parts of the exhibit are executed with a ribbon or tape that closely resembles the paint strokes.) The lines have a three-dimensional effect, giving the illusion of fabric that folds and gathers and pools on the floor.

The exhibition is on view through next week, from Dec. 8, 2011 to Jan. 14, 2012.
