Sculptor Francis Upritchard and her designer husband Martino Gamper ask in a collaborative installation of their respective work, just what you’d do if a scrawny spinosaurus were to run across your dining table? Gamper’s playful patterning and richly colored fabrics and Upritchard’s quirky dinosaur cast the scenario in whimsy and pull out a chair for us to join in. (At Anton Kern Gallerythrough Feb 20th).
