For her Documenta IX project, Brazilian artist Jac Leirner stole
dozens of ashtrays from airplane seat armrests and strung them
together. For this show, she incorporates items
like devalued Brazilian currency, Swiss grocery sacks and airsickness
bags. Leirner manages to come up with some witty and elegant work as
she tries "to find a place for things that don’t have place."
