Sprinkle Brigade

Riviera Gallery
2007-11-26

People thought I was getting unnecessarily cynical in my essay “Call it Merde (and they will eat it)” when I stated that the art world is going to shit. But with “Equipped” the artists’ collective Sprinkle Brigade is proving my prescients. These “crap artists” (apologies to Philip K. Dick) stroll the byways of the city looking for the residue-do of our well fed canine friends. When reeking mounds of doggie droppings are located, they snap into documentation mode photographing and video recording the transformation of said excrement with props (imagine playing Mr. Potato Head with a turd). Photographic examples of their “Urban Beautification” project will be on display (unfortunately, no actual shit will appear, so we’ll be deprived of the odiferous qualities) and they’ll be signing copies of their new book, Sprinkle Brigade Vol. 1: New York State of Mind. Bon Appetite. —James Kalm
