Bloomberg New Contemporaries is back at the ICA. I liked two figurative pieces. One a line-drawn animation by Kristian de la Riva, featuring a man inflicting violent injuries on himself. Surprisingly gruesome.
The other, a video called The Encounter by Agnieszka Kucharko shows an unidentifiable man in an establishment setting. A carefully worded and spoken monologue questions emotions and agendas. The focus is very much on the sound, making the oblique language more dense.
