Among the more interesting summer shows in Los Angeles was Ken Brecherís installation at the Santa Monica Museum of Art in Bergamot Station. Titled "The Little Room of Epiphanies," the installation was done in the style of an artistís curio shop, the walls lined with a meticulously organized array of glass bottles (labeled and filled with dirt, rocks or other naturalist souvenirs), U.S. flags and assorted other patriotic ephemera, framed newspaper clippings, printed matter found in airplane seat-back pockets, postcards and more, along with taxidermy animals posed in various states of action. A lizard, for instance, ascends a wooden ladder to nowhere.
