artblog Art Safaris – Episode 7 – Ronnie Bass at Marginal Utility


This almost 3-minute episode shows us watching and discussing the video works at Marginal Utility by Brooklyn artist Ronnie Bass. When puzzling out meaning, it’s often good to have multiple points of view, and we did. The scenes of a young man and woman chanting and playing drums, guitar and a saw seemed like music videos to some, and to others like an interesting puzzle to be unravelled. Intriguing work!
