 Scope at the Townhouse Hotel

Most of the galleries were featuring solo shows in their rooms. Upstairs, Kasia Kay Art Projects from Chicago had on display a variety of works by the multimedia artist Sandra Bermudez, who in addition to her appearance at Scope has also made an installation at the Miami Design District of silver helium balloons spelling out "Be" and "Mine" (buttons expressing similar sentiments, if that’s what they are, were available for the taking at Scope). In a serenade to sweetness, Bermudez has covered the white bedspread with a flock of Disneyesque birds, hand made in polymer clay, painted in pretty pastels and given false eyelashes. Called Little Birds (2005).
