If you're expecting the sculptor Thomas Houseago at his most menacing, you'll be in for a different sort of adventure this winter at Hauser & Wirth. The tribal masks are gone; the lunging, glaring figures have sauntered off. Houseago has flipped his world around to explore the negative space around his plaster beasts. 'Moun Room', Houseago's series of ever-larger spaces assembled at Hauser & Wirth's gallery in Chelsea, New York, is an invitation to explore it along with him, with the viewer playing the figure.
