Rogers Roasters, Bizarro-Style

by

Seinfeld, the show, lives on in our hearts and in syndication. The sitcom's story lines still ring true, even if the fashions don't, and the jokes, yep, they're still pretty funny. Of course, we're all familiar with the characters and the idiosyncrasies of each, but what if Elaine, George, Kramer and Jerry (or Gerri, if you prefer) were re-imagined a little darker, a little more Goth? Would things still make sense? Artist Jerstin Crosby loosely explores this concept in his new exhibition, In the Manner of Smoke, opening from 6 to 10 p.m. Friday, February 19, at the Good Citizen Gallery (2247 Gravois Avenue). His Seinfeldian vision is realized through a video projection, filmed in a redo of Jerry's apartment, with the characters taking on the issues of animal rights and vegetarianism (Seinfeld himself doesn't eat meat in real life). The exhibition, which runs through Saturday, March 20, also features a site-specific installation in the gallery and a public artwork on Good Citizen's billboard. After opening night, the gallery portions of In the Manner of Smoke can be viewed from noon to 5 p.m. on Friday and Saturday; call 314-348-4587 or visit www.goodcitizenstl.com to learn more about the exhibit.
Fridays, Saturdays. Starts: Feb. 19. Continues through March 20, 2010
