- I got him!

I did it. All right!

Chill out, Momba.

- He's right there.

- Don't get hit by the fist.

I'm gonna get him. You cannot run

from the wrath of Momba!

- Hey, Lainie. Is she here?

- Yeah, she's coming right out.


Mark Cordell. He's very polite,

but he can be intimidating.

He knows his sh*t. He does

Alice Aycock and Christy Rupp.

He collects for himself and friends.

and some big collectors.

- Like?

- Sato Makamoto. Bidi Karamora.

- My stuff's going to Japan?

- I don't know.

- You didn't ask him?

- Of course, but he gave me vague.

- And that was good enough for you?

- That, and a check for $24,000.

- Half of which is yours.

- God. do I need this.

Annie Laird?

Inez said you might drop by.

I bought some of your pieces.

I'm Mark Cordell.

- I've got a check in my bag.

- That's hardly what they're worth.

- How do you know me?

- Inez showed me your picture.

- Are my pieces going to Japan?

- That's likely.

- I'm not going to see them again?

- Not necessarily.

Do you have time for lunch?

I'm supposed to be upstate

by two o'clock for jury duty.

- I wouldn't want to make you late.

- Maybe just a quick bite.

- What was the first one?

- Let me see...

The very first.

When my parents split up, I stayed

with my grandmother. I hated it.

I made a model of a wild meadow.

I kept it under the bed.

Thorns were made out of staples.

A stream was made from tin foil.

I would reach under the bed...

I was afraid of the dark.

I would reach under and touch it

and dream I was there.

- And that's how you got started?

- Yeah. Were you afraid of the dark?

There wasn't much dark in my house.

We were a lot of kids.

I was the youngest.

It was a real madhouse. A zoo.

You want to know

where your pieces are going?

Do you know Japan? Contemporary art
