In Nathalie Djurberg’s latest animation at Zach Feuer Gallery (through January 24), a gangly ballerina prances about a table set for a tea party. The dancer, seemingly high on sugary fumes, teeters over teapots, cherry-studded cream puffs, and piles of oozing confections. It’s not clear what sort of statement Djurberg is making: perhaps that there should be more black ballerinas? Or more tea parties? Whatever it is, she has cobbled together a delightful show.
