Chauney Peck's A Powerful New God Is Coming resembles a solar flare; something is breaking apart, in a spray of brightly colored strips of cut vinyl on white paper. How it will come back together again, or whether it will (what powerful new god?), remains to be seen in this moment of hovering and vibrating. It turns out each strip of vinyl represents a person relocated to make way for the first successful hydrogen-bomb test, in 1952, which ended up vaporizing their little island in the Pacific. Peck's whole show of sculptures and works on paper—some made using chance, all arranged in homage to European museum displays of African fetish objects—jam together the "primitive" and the "modern" like atoms in fusion. BOOM. (SOIL, 112 Third Ave S, 264-8061. Noon–5 pm, free. Through May 1.)
