You walk into an art gallery on West 25th Street. It’s the Marlborough Chelsea, right? Well, yes and no. The gallery you enter is hung with paintings and collages, but it doesn’t look like Marlborough. Moving on, you find yourself in an art storage space. Then a public lavatory, then a private one, as if in somebody’s home, where you step into the bathtub, then, Alice-fashion, you pop through a hole in the wall. Which is when things start getting… odd. You have been wandering through an installation by Jonah Freeman and Justin Lowe called Stray Light Grey.
