One of the most striking works in MONA's new exhibition, Zero, consists of a black wall covered in a meticulous grid of identical clear plastic bags filled with water. Curator Mattijs Visser cheerfully points out that it could be made at home.
This observation is interrupted by the sound of smashing glass from the gallery next door. In it, visitors are throwing glass bottles against a metal backing board — with the enthusiasm of power pitchers gunning for a strikeout.
Picking up a bottle, Visser points out that this also could be done at home.
