A lightning rod for the imagination, German artist Blexbolex gives us People, a collection of silk-screened figures engaged in activities fascinating and mundane. A label identifies each subject; images on opposite pages create a comparison that’s rarely straightforward, inviting the reexamination of language at its core. Examples include speaker/snake charmer; contortionist/plumber; sleepwalker/cave explorer; secretary/yeti. Simple, smart, and supremely engaging. Ages four to eight.
