Invisible crate

We were unpacking invisible artworks over the weekend as we prepare to begin installing the Invisible exhibition in the gallery this week. Of course, as you might imagine there’s not a lot to unpack.  But one of the most interesting art crates I’ve ever come across holds Tom Friedman’s 1992 sculpture Untitled (A Curse), which he made by hiring a professional witch to curse a spherical area above an otherwise unoccupied pedestal.  The crate not only includes a padded space for the custom-made pedestal, but also includes a specially rounded area for the invisible cursed sphere above it. ( It would’ve been nice to see the look on the inspecting officer’s face when that  piececame in through customs. )
