I just learned about a death in the family as I started my Chelsea art tour on Wednesday. And then I saw this video, “Cowfish”, 2011, by João Maria Gusmão + Pedro Paiva, which was part of the Beautiful Monsters show at Gladstone Gallery. I haven’t been able to stop thinking about this sad, big eyed, dying fish all week. I hope he escaped his fate but, as happens to all of us, I am pretty sure he did not.
