What does the coronavirus sound like? What does it look like? What does it feel like? I dont mean in a physical, medical or emotional sensethe shortness of breath, the intubation machines, the loss of loved onesbut rather a molecular one. The surprisingly beautiful answers appear in Unraveling, an exhibition of videos, stills and textiles by Laura Splan on view at BioBAT Art Space in Brooklyn (by appointment and online). Audio is plucky and strummy, courtesy a pair of biotech professionals who use guitars to interpret the mRNA sequence of SARS-CoV-2. Visuals rival your most mesmerizing screen saver, symmetrically patterning the viruss spike protein into ribbony animated sequences in natural shades of rose, mauve, mint and aquamarine. For feel think soft and cozy, as in a tapestry being woven from collectively unraveled yarn plus the wool of laboratory llamas and alpacas, whose antibodies help produce the human drugs we need so badly to end the pandemic. That Splans erudite aestheticization of COVID-19 can enchant as much as it does is baffling only if we forget the crucial fact that she has removed the human elementthe dead and the sufferingfrom the artistic equation.
