In the Zabriskie’s side gallery, Pat Lasch’s intriguing "Sacred Breeding" exhibit creates a bizarre miniature world where tiny figures — including a fertile holy woman named Anna and an African prince under an elegant canopy — sleep atop large, rectangular podiums, their sexual organs prominently displayed, all dedicated to bringing new life into existence. Near Anna are three eggs, perhaps the result of her association with the three sacred men across the room. Meanwhile, an Egg Handler sits atop a mirrored box filled with eggs that seemingly go on toward infinity. Step gingerly to avoid tripping over either of the two ladders.
