Video Artist Erkka Nissinen Has a Fuzzy-Wuzzy Confessor

Erkka Nissinen has one intricate imagination. At Lombard-Freid Projects through this Friday, she is showing a collection of kindergarten-flavored video art — part Tamy-Ben Tor, part Todd Solondz, part Romper Room. Overweight chefs with Santa beards sing a medley in one; in another, a “complete moron” narrates “Where is my yogurt? I’m so hungry and I’m looking for my yogurt.” Here a PG clip of a longer video in which a transvestite office worker expresses his innermost desires to a panda bear. —Emma Pearse
