Vidya Gastaldon
Swiss Institute
Although delicately drawn iconography of hippy and new-age culture has had cachet with younger artists in the past few years, it is usually encased in a carapace of irony. The young, Geneva-based French artist Gastaldon – here for her first US solo – declines that armort: her craft-intensive drawings, objects and videos are entirely sincere in their loopy, visionary zeal.
