Last month, Mia visitors marveled at Chris Larson's mind-bending, room-tilting work, which was part of the "State of the Art" exhibition. Several summers ago, even more fantastically, Larson constructed a to-scale model of a Marcel Breuer house, and then burned it to the ground during Northern Spark. "Land Speed Record," named for a live album by punk band Hüsker Dü, is a video piece created in collaboration with the group's drummer and co-founder, Grant Hart. The premise is simple, starting with charred objects from Hart's childhood home, which burned down in 2011, that Larson agreed to store in his studio. During that time, Hart would visit periodically and rearrange items. The result is not so simple, as movement, memory, and method become an integral part of the picture, and supposed still lives gained momentum. There will be an opening-day talk with Larson at 7 p.m. Thursday, June 8 (tickets are free; check in at the Hennepin Box Office).
