In her City Lights pick for today, contributor Maura Judkis wrote about “Behind the Velvet Curtain” at the Katzen Arts Center: “Many of the works aggressively comment on gender disparity and sexuality, from Lenka Klodova’s photographs of a disembodied nude female torso in various household settings, to Erika Bornova’s sculptures of bejeweled women with ghastly faces offering themselves up for sex. Best is Klodova’s “Structures,” a spherical photo diorama of couples like paper dolls. Each adult leans out of their space to give their neighbor a kiss—either as a condemnation of the breakdown of the family unit, or in support of the loosening of prudish social structures.”
