Artforum - February 2004

Bless this mess: Disheveled crash-pad chic is the backdrop for this group show at the Schindler House, summoning the ghost of Pauline Schindler, who "domesticated" the modernist masterpiece, circa 1940, much to architect Rudolph's horror. [...]

In the nursery, Marie Jager's installation Phoenix audition song, 2004 establishes precarious relationships between a maidenhair fern, a plant light, and a speaker emitting the eponymous Paul Williams ditty at 1/10 speed. Not quite ecosystem, not quite Deleuzian becoming, it's a tender monument to the experimental domestic agenda of the Schindler House and its optimistic architect. - Michael Ned Holte
