ride the train!

"A colossal wooden cabinet will reach almost to the gallery’s ceiling; its open doors will extend toward the gallery’s side walls. Roberts will fill the cabinet with wooden sculptures he will build on site, while the doors will be covered with almost 200 of his detailed paintings."

Wunderkammer anyone?

Dude says he invented the phrase "Mambo Jambo" for the show, but he's sorely mistaken. Seems it is the name of a restaurant in Florida, a record by the Perez Prado Orchestra, a record label and a party night in Kuala Lumpur. Must be taking a shit while he's reading the paper there...
