Red Heart/Black Tongues at Big Orbit Gallery

ipwhyouLast eve after heading over to the Albright Knox for Friday Gusto at the Gallery's "Art of Hip-Hop", I attended The opening for Big Orbit's "Red Heart/Black Tongues", a very cool video installation by David Mitchell. The installation is ambitious, with two full-sized cars, taxidermy deer, projected video and controlled lighting. The artist was part of Big Orbit's "Site-Specific Summer Residency Program" wherein an artist working with a site-specific installation project is provided twelve weeks to create a "multi-disciplinary, cross-media discourse that holds the potential to involve more kinds of people in the artistic process." 
I was delighted to find "Big Orbit", tucked behind a great old brick building full of artists studios. It reminded me of some of the alternative art spaces I frequented when I lived in DC. 
Big Orbit Gallery is located at 30 Essex Street in Buffalo. The exhibit is up through November 20th.
