ABIGAIL DEVILLE’S installation, ‘Harlem River Blues,’ made from accumulated debris, is part of Space Invaders.

Artistic invasion of Lehman College life By Adam Wisnieski

ver wondered what the bottom of the Harlem River looks like? It’s not full of fish or tires or sunken boats, but Marble Hill born and raised artist Abigail DeVille’s installation, “Harlem River Blues,” depicts it being piled high with Johnny Mathis and Stevie Wonder records. Ms. DeVille’s grandmother, who died last year after living in Marble Hill for 40 years, was the inspiration for the work, on display through January as part of the Lehman College Art Gallery’s Space Invaders exhibit. The installation is crammed into a small video room at the Lehman gallery and includes the artist’s late grandmother’s belongings and furniture, including dozens of her records. The records, which are scattered on the floor and walls near a picture of her grandmother, can be read as messages. Johnny Mathis’ “Good Night, Dear Lord.” is near an old Chess record of Moms Mably’s “The Funniest Woman in the World.” Kenny Rogers’ single “She Believes in Me” is near Steve Wonder’s “You are the Sunshine of My Life.” The installation is dark and mysterious — a television perpetually broadcasts fuzz in the background — and it mimics an underwater feeling of grief. “She wants you to feel like you’re underwater,” the art gallery’s director Susan Hoeltzel said. But it also brings the viewer into a Marble Hill apartment with roaches and old furniture. Ms. DeVille is one of 18 artists that invaded Lehman College for Space Invaders, curated by Karin Bravin. For this show, which runs through Wednesday, Jan. 9, the college itself became a canvas. While most of the installations are within


the Lehman Art Gallery’s walls, some spill out onto grounds. At the gallery’s entrance is Rachel Hayes’ brightly colored fabric piece, which moves with the weather. Last week, with a little help from the sun, her piece transformed the gallery’s lobby into a church. ³You walk in here and it’s like stained glass windows,” Ms. Hoeltzel said. In the gallery’s entrance, vinyl decals of small green weeds, created by Kim Beck, look as if they’re growing out of the wall. Outside, DeWitt Godfrey wedged 15 massive steel tubes beneath an underpass on Lehman’s campus. Students can sit on the giant rusted steel ovals or walk through them. Dahila Elsayed installed a series of yellow and orange flags around the schoool’s community garden. The work was not only constructed for the spot, but was inspired by Lehman’s peculiar mascot, the lightning bug. The insects use a call and response, flash and counterflash, to communicate. The flags are emblazoned with words such as “Subtle Signals,” “Loud + Clear,” “Forward Urges,” “Glowing” and “Some Sparks.” After the 18 artists were selected for the installation, Ms. Hoeltzel said they walked around the campus to claim territory. The weren’t any battles over space, but Ms. Hoetzel said, “We had to work with the college on what was possible.” Manhattan artist Diana Cooper chose a corner space in one of the exhibition rooms. “It’s a funky kind of space,” Ms. Cooper said last week, while standing in front of her installation. Instead of ignoring the more utilitarian aspects of the room, including an exit sign and air conditioning vents, she used them in her piece. She took photos of the exit signs and vents, printed them out and placed them nearby. It’s hard to tell what’s real. “I like the fact that you might mistake one for the other,” she said. “Photography’s capacity of fooling you is becoming more and more advanced.” Though the gallery is open, her installation is still a work in progress. She stopped by last week to tweak it.

LISA KELLNER’S installation, ‘The Seepage of Proserpine,’ above, is constructed from silk, thread, pigment, acrylic, ink, resin and bleach. Below is Cordy Ryman’s installation, ‘Rafter Web Scrap Wall.’ Robert Melle’s installation, below left, ‘High Life,’ is made of enamel on imitation wood panels, drop ceiling panels and fiberglass

Co-op makes the most of its park-like setting


rom the ninth oor apartment at 5550 Fieldston Road, Van Cortlandt Park’s easterly vistas seem as if they are at your ďŹ ngertips. But the one-bedroom, one-bath co-op, has a lot more going for it than distant views, light and air. Its private terrace, just off the living room, soaks up the morning sun. Inside, it has nicely ďŹ nished hardwood oors throughout and a large dining area adjacent to a well-appointed kitchen with tile ooring, a sideby-side refrigerator and built in cooktop and wall oven. The bedroom has a walk-in closet as well as a double closet and unique arrangement of built-

in storage with louver doors surrounding double wide windows. The building is well-known for its amenities, including a courtyard garden, meeting and recreation rooms, a laundry room, a garage, a live-in superintendent and a porter. The management ofďŹ ce is on site. “The location is ideal,â€? says Irene Simon, of Prudential Douglas Elliman, “It’s convenient to Riverdale Neighborhood House, public, private and parochial schools, shopping on Mosholu Avenue and Henry Hudson Parkway.â€? Ms. Simon has listed the co-op for $140,000. Monthly maintenance is $826.

Simple tips for completing a DIY home project on time We are in the midst of a do-it-yourself revolution, with more Americans pulling out the tool belt and getting their hands dirty. If you’d like to hop on the DIY bandwagon and enjoy the money savings and pride that comes with completing a project yourself, it’s important to keep some tips in mind so your grand ideas don’t become grand disasters. The down economy has inspired many Americans to skip the pros and complete home improvement projects themselves - and this trend isn’t just for low- or middle-income families. Wealthy families are making an effort as well, with 70 percent of mass affluent Americans ($50,000 to $250,000 in total household investable assets) saying they took on home improvement projects in the last year, such as plumbing, painting and home cleaning, that they would normally hire someone else to do, according

to a 2012 Bank of America Merrill Edge Report. No matter what your reason, from saving money to having complete control over the project, here are some important steps to follow so the job gets completed successfully.

Choose your project wisely Depending on your level of skill and ambition, you may be able to complete a number of different projects around your home, adding value, comfort and style to your real estate investment. But choosing a project and researching it thoroughly prior to starting is important. While you may want to completely remodel your bathroom, do you have the skills necessary to do all the plumbing? Would it be better to give the room a facelift with some new hardware, linens

and a fresh coat of paint? Make sure you understand the entire scope of the project before you take it on with full force.

Get the right tools While professionals have all the tools they need on hand, DIY homeowners will likely need to purchase some equipment to complete the job. While you’re likely to have the basics — hammer, screwdriver, nails, etc. — most projects require specific types of tools to get the job done correctly. For example, if you plan to upgrade your flooring, you can get all the tools you need while you pick up your supplies from Lumber Liquidators. From installation starter kits to mechanic gloves and floor nailers, you’ll find high-quality, professional-grade tools at a low cost. Some tools are a smart investment because they help throughout the instal-

lation process, and can be used time and time again for maintenance purposes. And in some cases, tools can be cheaper to own than to rent.

Make a budget and timeline Two of the most common roadblocks that overly ambitious DIYers face are projects taking longer than expected and costing more than originally intended. When you start a project, it’s important to set a realistic budget and stick to it. Too often homeowners begin to upgrade materials and make costly mistakes that add up quickly. Having a timeline is important also so your weekend project doesn’t turn into a month-long endeavor. While you need to be flexible (there are frequently unexpected delays when doing something on your own), it’s important to

have a timeframe for project completion. When a home project is finished on time and on budget, everyone is happy.

What’s cooking?

Fall for fruit: pomegranate, bulghur and mint salad By Danielle Rehfeld Bulghur wheat is usually associated with tabouli. A Middle Eastern staple, tabouli is a common salad consisting of fresh herbs, cooked bulghur, lemon juice and olive oil. The first time I tried it, it was a soggy mess. What was this grain melange of watery cucumbers and pulverized tomatoes sitting in a sad cold liquid of vegetable juices? You can see it now in your grocery aisle next to the hummus and babaganoush. It was only later in life, in a small Druze town on Israel’s Mount Carmel, that tabouli changed its position in my culinary mental rolodex. We visited an unassuming small restaurant, one that looked like all the others along the village’s main artery. It was virtually empty but the cook and ba’al ha bayit(master of the house) knew our family friend and ushered us in. They brought out countless plates of mezze, one of which was tabouli — real tabouli. The salad was mostly bright green, whole leaves with only a small amount of bulghur folded in. Each bite was pure earth; grassy parsley, peppery cilantro and just tender little grains of bulghur. It was then that I learned to appreciate this underused grain. This September, I learned a new way to make it with cracked wheat. My aunt Amira graced our Rosh Hashanah table with seven kinds of salad and 10 main courses. My favorites ranged from a salad of julienned raw carrots and beets to Bamia, or baby okra, stewed with buttery soft pieces of beef shoulder. The other highlight was this healthy salad of bulghur, pomegranate seeds, torn mint and walnuts. Tossed with just a little bit of olive oil, lemon, salt and pepper, this salad’s bright colors and crunchy texture make it a veritable feast for the eyes and senses. AMIRA’S POMEGRANATE, BULGHUR AND MINT SALAD* Serves 4. The star ingredient in this recipe are the crunchy, tart pomegranate seeds. To seed a pomegranate, cut it in half, put on a makeshift bib and place a bowl in your sink. Using a mallet, knock the outside of the pomegranate over the bowl and watch the seeds fall. This method is a lot easier than trying to pry them out with your fingers, but the juices stain so beware. 2 Cups bulghur wheat, cooked 1-1/2 Cups pomegranate seeds 1/2 Cup mint leaves, loosely packed, and torn into small pieces 1 lemon freshly squeezed 3 Tbsps. good quality olive oil kosher salt and freshly cracked black pepper to taste THE RETIRED & Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP) of the Community Service Society is recruiting volunteers age 55 and over to assist in working with 3- and 4-year-old children in Head Start Centers, helping them to develop a love for learning. RSVP Grandfriend volunteers are patient and caring individuals who share their time and experience with children and teachers in selected Head Start centers throughout New York City. Grandfriends assist Head Start teachers in activities that help children develop and strengthen their language skills. Orientation and training are provided. For more information, please call Margarita I. Zapata at 718-295-7940. Established 34 years ago, the Retired & Senior Volunteer Program’s 9,000 volunteers contribute more than two million hours of service annually to 600 organizations in New York City. RSVP is part of the Community Service Society of New York, a nonprofit organization which advocates on behalf of the poor in the areas of education, affordable housing, health care and income maintenance. RSVP is funded by CSS, the Corporation for National Service, other government agencies, foundations, individuals and the Friends of RSVP, Inc.

1/2 Cup walnuts, toasted and coarsely chopped Cook the bulghur wheat according to package directions. In a colander, rinse the bulghur under cold water. Strain well, making sure to remove any excess water or starchy residue. In a large, non-reactive bowl, combine 2 cups cooked bulghur and pomegranate seeds. Tear the mint into small pieces over

the bowl. Add the lemon juice, olive oil and season to taste with salt and pepper. Toss gently to combine. Taste for seasoning and adjust. Fold in the walnuts and transfer to a serving dish. Garnish with a small sprig of mint. *Cook’s Note: This salad can be made up to one day ahead of time and stored in the refrigerator.

+++++ A New Leaf, writer/director Elaine Mayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s magniďŹ cent black comedy, has ďŹ nally become available on DVD. This 1971 cult favorite carries on the tradition of such classic offbeat romances as Arsenic and Old Lace, His Girl Friday and Groundhog Day. Working from a script which blends gallows humor and Mayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s innovative sketch comedy work with Mike Nichols and a surprising vision of romantic love, May assembled a dream cast for her ďŹ rst feature ďŹ lm. With Walter Matthau and herself in the leads, she brought in such ďŹ rst-rate second bananas as Jack Weston, George Rose, James Coco, Doris Roberts, and Renee Taylor, as well as a host of other talents, to populate the privileged world of the central characters. Matthau plays the neâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;er-dowell Henry Graham, scion of an East Coast family of the American aristocracy. The ďŹ lm begins with Grahamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s startling discovery that he has spent his entire inheritance. In order to avoid being reduced to a member of the disdained middle class, he is advised by his faithful butler (Rose) that his only hope for the continuation of his elaborately gilded existence is to marry a rich woman. What Henry doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mention to the butler or anyone else is that once he marries, he plans on murdering his wife and inheriting her money to continue his single, uncomplicated, self-centered lifestyle. As he is all but broke, Henry is obliged to borrow money from his despised uncle (Coco) at 1000 percent interest. With the loan due in six weeks, and only $50,000 to spend, Henry sets out to ďŹ nd a wife. After a frustrating series of failed dates, he ďŹ nally stumbles upon the perfect mate, Henrietta Lowell (May). Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a clueless, unsophisticated, all-too trusting botanist with a massive fortune and no living relatives. What follows is black comedy at its darkest, as newlyweds Henry and Henrietta settle into life together. She goes about her botanical research while he gets her overstaffed mansion in order while simultaneously plotting her doom. Matthau, whose precise comic timing and extreme likeability are on a par with Jack Benny and Groucho Marx, sustains the role of a loser with villainous intentions who you just canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t bring yourself to hate. Although his character fancies himself capable of doing in the missus, you know heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just a schnook at heart, a would-be villain with a heart of gold. And May, who begins the ďŹ lm as a clueless victim, emerges as a dream wife whose downto-earth ways and unquestioning love transform her husband from a heartless misanthrope into an actual human being. Matthau and May are a

Robot buddy offers new lease on life +++++ Frank Langella, a powerhouse actor on stage, has rarely been given the opportunity to play a sympathetic lead in the movies. But in Robot & Frank he displays his polished comedic and dramatic skills to great effect in a winning, touching, slightly futuristic comedy/ drama. Working with ďŹ rst-time director Jake Schreier, Langella portrays Frank, an elderly former cat burglar whose spirit is intact after serving two terms in prison. Frank seems content to live out his life in a remote upstate New York cottage, although his mental faculties are gradually diminishing and his homemaking skills are less than stellar. But his son, played with a nuanced mix of devotion and alienation by James Marsden (Enchanted, Straw Dogs), is unwilling to relegate the old jewel thief to a life of senility in the old age home without making an effort to bring him back from the precipice of dementia. To this end, the son gives his dad a robot home health care aide. A compact, humanoid-shaped machine, the robot is the shut-inâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dream. It cooks healthy meals, cleans the house, shops for food and household supplies, creates and tends its own garden, can carry on a decent conversation, and generally takes care of its charge with all the consideration and patience of the best possible human nurse/ companion/housekeeper/cook and bottle washer. The old burglar is appalled at ďŹ rst, and refuses to be a cooperative patient. But once he ďŹ nds that the robot has not been programmed to be an enforcer of civil laws, a compromise is struck between man and machine which serves both of their purposes. Frank will behave cordially, eat his no-salt, low fat, vegetarian meals, and sleep and awaken on the robotâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s programmed schedule, while the robot will learn the cat burglarâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s trade. The friendship which devel-

ops between Langella and the robot, voiced with a sweet metallic charm by Peter Saarsgard (Kinsey, An Education) grows into what must be the ďŹ rst meaningful relationship the old thief has had since the early years of his marriage. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s apparent that over the course of his life he alienated his ex-wife and children and was never an essential part of their lives. Finding a friend so late in life revitalizes Frank and makes him more of a human being. Instead of the irritable recluse plagued by dementia and ill-will, he begins to build relationships with the local librarian, played by Susan Sarandon, and his daughter, played by Liv Tyler. Through all of this, Langellaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s scenes with the robot are funny, quirky, warm and demanding, as a suspension of disbelief must be maintained while building a real relationship between man and machine. And working with Marsden, Sarandon and Tyler presents a different set of challenges. Langella is convincing as a character who may be able to relate to a robot but who ďŹ nds enormous difďŹ culty in overcoming a lifetime of selďŹ sh behavior towards ďŹ&#x201A;esh and blood characters. In all of this, the script by Christopher D. Ford succeeds at ďŹ nding a balance between the whimsical relationship between Frank and his robot, the challenges of Frankâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s downwardly spiraling mental acuity, and the old guyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s late in life attempts to overcome the emotional alienation from his family. Fordâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s screenplay doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t always succeed at incorporating the intersecting plotlines. But his work must be applauded, as ďŹ rst-time screenwriters rarely ďŹ nd such success with such a complex story and characters. And director Schreier must be congratulated as well for working with his actors to create one of this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most touching and insightful ensemble pieces. It will challenge you, amuse you and give you a ďŹ ne night out at the movies.
