  •  REVIEW: TONY FEHER

    Tony Feher

    Isn't that just crate?

    Tony Feher's creations from boxes and other castaway items are thought-provoking art or scattered junk, depending on your point of view.

    By ROBIN EISGRAU

    Be advised to watch your step as you walk around this gallery and take in the latest exhibit from Tony Feher, or you might knock some of the art over.

      
    TONY FEHER
    Installation by: Tony Feher.
     SCHEDULE
    D'Amelio Terras Gallery 525 West 22nd St. Through Dec. 22, 2001

    Covering the floor of the gallery are dozens of wooden crates (they look like the kind often used for toting fuit or vegetables) painted a very Andy Warhol's Factory silver hue.

    You might also kick one of the brightly colored orange, red or blue disks that keep the crates company and send them skidding hockey-puck like across the floor. Then there are the clear plastic bottles with varying quantities of clear liquid (one can suppose it's water) that nestle nearby.

    All these objects ask the viewer to ponder their function — art or refuse? If these things were only a few feet away on the curb, they'd just be trash, but the careful arrangement and the silver "gilding" of the crates makes them art. (One grumpy viewer left the gallery delcaring that he'd just seen a bunch of junk. Yes and no.)

    Commanding a chunk of space near the gallery's entrance is a postmodern monument; a solid structure created by stacking dozens of red plastic Coca-Cola crates atop each other. The Coca-Cola brand name on each crate has been scraped off, a clever refusal of any product placement that renders the piece more conceptual than "Pop," and food (or beverage) for thought nonetheless.
