LoVid

A long-standing collaboration between the artists Tali Hinkis and Kyle Lapidus, LoVid bridges the digital and the handmade with rare ebullience. Lumpy stuffed sculptures—they resemble both psychedelic sea creatures and unhinged quilting projects—hang from the walls, trailing thread from their uneven seams. They’re in happy dialogue with “Ruby Rendering,” a five-channel video from 2015, of undulating colorful patterns. LoVid also performs; at the opening, Hinkis and Lapidus played synth music in costume to launch their new online work, “Young Antiquities,” a collection of intricate immaterial sculptures, spinning in virtual space.
