Art fairs are mysterious things. So is clothing made — not for soldiers — with a camouflage print on it. So it perhaps makes total sense that this weird pants sculpture was installed by a shadowy mystery man who then ran away leaving no indication of who he was or how to contact him if you, say, wanted to buy this artwork. People manning the Cue Art Foundation booth nearby said a dude came in, installed the work, and then left — abandoning the cords running from the inflated pantaloons all over the floor. Cue kindly taped the wiring down to prevent visitors from tripping. But did they solve the mystery? Not yet.
