The works on view in Two or Three Things I Know About Her at Harvard’s Carpenter Center are strong overall, but Moyra Davey’s “Fifty Minutes” (2006) is a knockout. A meditation on nostalgia, psychoanalysis, photography, and reading in post 9/11 New York, the video shows the ordinary details of her apartment as Davey directly and laconically addresses the viewer about her changing relationship to the city around her. At once intimate and expansive, the piece maps out a personal geography which seems to shift and deform with every new thought. Through April 6th.
