lthough it begins with a light-filled room of drawings and collages, darkness reigns in "Even the Ghost of the Past," Marcel Dzamaís exhibition of new sculptures at David Zwirner on West 19th Street in Manhattanís Chelsea art district. A sculpture of a seated one-legged minotaur, with a rifle hung from a strap around his neck and a can of paintbrushes at his feet, guards the entrance to Dzamaís labyrinth -- a darkened room containing six dioramas lit only from within. Long celebrated for his intimate, cartoonlike drawings of almost unlimited imagination, Dzama has gone large-scale with a vengeance in new 3D versions of his signature work.
