“More absurd efforts lay inside the space, notably Dave Hardy’s foam-cement-and-glass sculptures that touch the gallery’s ceiling. Hardy has made two contraption-like towers by stacking these materials atop each other. It’s hard to figure out the inner workings of such a labyrinthine support system of curving foam, lopsided glass panels, and trinkets. But it doesn’t hurt to try.”
