At Bitforms beginning 18 December, Spanish artist Daniel Canogar’s work plays with video projected on odd supports like a group of shiny cd’s on a wall or an unspooled and zig-zag-installed piece of VHS tape.   The indoor fireworks lack sufficient content to ground the work in something more than light, color and motion.

Francesc Ruiz will install new work in the toilet of the George and Dragon Pub, covering the walls with issues of Sukia, an erotic Italian comic from late 1970s and early 80s, featuring the adventures of a jet-setting vampire and Gary, her gay butler.
