CATHY WYSOCKI’S OUT-LANDISH CREATURES
Having hopped off the Red Line at the JFK/UMass stop, then wending my way along Dorchester Avenue to #950, I morph from commuter to intrepid reporter and explorer/aid worker. It’s a complex transformation but I can handle it. I’m human, I multi-task.
We came from the sea and adapted to the land, and now we’re heading pell-mell to outer space — or maybe back to the sea? — where we’ll don adaptive clothing and/or even grow adaptive tissues and organs.
Artist Cathy Wysocki’s humanoid creatures have migrated off gallery walls from a two-dimensional planet called Lumplandia and landed — some with an audible “WHUMP!,” others as lightly as a whisper — here amid the white walls and sturdy floors of Dorchester’s Hallspace.
