15:51mins Looped SD Video and Stereo Sound Projected in Closet, Sculpey, Feathers, Small LCD Screen, Headphones
This piece was a site specific video installation at Noble and Superior Projects in Chicago, Illinois.
The work was part of the show, Post-Smithson in May of 2011.
“A fish gasps for air over and over in Crewe’s video, Fish Grass (+ Orifice), projected inside a walk-in closet. When viewers
peer into a slimy-looking Sculpey orifice on the same wall, they see a tiny HD projection of wriggling earthworms. Contained
within the small space, the installation provides an up-close-and-personal sensory experience, exposing the accidental beauty
in nature’s chaos.” - Laura Pearson, Time Out Chicago
“A video of a close-up of a fish’s mouth, slowly opening and closing as one gigantic eye stares back, unmovingly is projected
on a thin closet wall over a sculpture that is reminiscent of, at once, a bird’s nest, a mouth, an anus. This video is
mesmerizing; the sunlight immolates the transluscent mouth of the fish. That suggestive sculpture's hole stares you down like
the fish in the video; eyes and orifices, spaces of transition and transmutation exert a powerful force on the subject. It's
highly akin to the force of the erotic object as expectant (of the gaze and therefore meaning).” - Joel Kuennen, ArtSlant Chicago
