It’s a tie! Mindy Rose Schwartz and Heidi Norton
We should be so lucky. On one hand we had Mindy Rose Schwartz’ odd pottery, large vintage credenzas and ceramic water fountains occupying the whole of Threewalls, and on the other Heidi Norton’s impressive fossilized plants, encrusted in heavy glass plates, proved that it was time for Ebersmoore to aim higher and move into a bigger space where they can show off their stable. Between these two artists there’s so much sculptural dexterity to melt the surface of the earth. It’s time to include them in the next Whitney Biennial by any means possible.
