"Susan Chen: Butterflies Shift North" Susan Chen's installation in the funky artist-run space Skydive looks like a model shop for some low-budget film. Chen has created a series of tiny, island-like constructions and hung them from the gallery ceiling. Clusters of white Christmas lights dangle from the ceiling as well, creating a DIY night sky. The "islands" are little nuggets of the surreal. In one, a tiny plastic Jabba the Hut is plopped on a chunk of Styrofoam, er, polar ice. Other constructions are Apocalypse Now jungle-y. In a video projected on the opposite wall, Chen's quirky and goofy constructions are transformed, becoming stars in an elegant and otherworldly environment. Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain...Through January 31. 3400 Montrose Blvd., suite 907, www.theskydive.org. — KK
