"As Long as It Lasts," a summer group show on the subject of impermanence and mortality curated by Tom Eccles, is ending Marian Goodman’s 2008/2009 season on a melancholy note. The show’s most haunting piece, Polish artist Artur Zmijewski’s tragic Karolina (2002), is a harrowing video portrait of a lovely 18-year-old girl with an unlikely case of advanced osteoporosis, a disease usually associated with old age.
