Charles Bronson, known as Britain's most unruly prisoner, serves as the point of departure for Andra Ursuta's latest show, which takes its title from a fitness book Bronson wrote while in solitary confinement. Mainly, the tome provides a conceptual frame for the Romanian artist to pursue her interest in violent themes. The centerpiece consists of a baseball-pitching machine modified to hurl stones at a flesh-colored tiled wall covered with human hair and filth.
