For “You Don’t Know Where Her Mouth Has Been,” Simone Leigh
’s provocatively titled, spectacular exhibition at The Kitchen, the artist goes straight for the theatrical jugular. Seen against black walls, three enormous chandelier-like sculptures hang from the ceiling, illuminated by dramatic spotlights that pierce through the prevailing darkness. In addition, the show includes wall-sized video installations, sculptures on stands and a tall tripartite vase flanked on either side by rows of giant odiferous tobacco leaves.
