Meanwhile the Lower East Side scene was quiet with some interesting shows at Miguel Abreau, Leslie Heller and Invisible-Exports. The latter had a group show based on Susan Sontag's famous essay, "Notes on Camp." This show was titled "Notes on Notes on Camp."
The king of camp in all media is John Waters and he did not disappoint with his big oversized "Rush" bottle of poppers. It deploys the Oldenburg, Gober "make it big" formula but the
spill and crinkly yellow wrapper are too creepy for comfort and just looking at the thing gave me a headache and made me dizzy. Rather effective I would say.
