Inverting the uncanny animism of J. J. Grandville’s satirical engravings (in, say, Un autre monde, from 1844), von Bonin has presented her animal-avatars, such as the red hermit crab slumped over an ersatz mid-century biomorphic table, as limp and exhausted since the exhibition in Bregenz last year. Here, this draining effect is extended to color, in a new sculpture of colorless soft creatures heaped on a white table top. White, unusually, dominates the exhibition.
