Lart (Berliner) & Simon (Evans) have a show happening now in their current hometown Berlin. Under the name "Light Centre" they created, "An array of objects from the artist shared domestic environment, fastidiously recreated in the form of ghost-like black & white replicas, stand arranged as in a display from a post apocalyptic anthropology museum," according to their gallery, Maribel Lopez. This is reason enough to take a European vacation. More info here:http://www.maribellopezgallery.com/html/CurrentExhibition.html
