1950s Collages by Helen Adam Anticipated the Internet Meme   Pick-button-5bf6c1b36c3b74ec8f312c7c9f6f1ae3
by
Posted 1/5/15

A funny image accompanied by a one-liner caption—it’s a form we know all too well. The internet meme is infinitely reproducible, mutable, and sharable: they're digital artifacts symptomatic of our current cut-and-paste culture. But we’re not the first generation to cut and paste with wild abandon: in Europe in the 20s and 30s, photomontage became surreal art in the hands of practitioners like Hannah Höch, John Heartfield, and Raoul Hausmann; British artists took to collage from...

The Man at Ululation: Bob Cobbing   Pick-button-5bf6c1b36c3b74ec8f312c7c9f6f1ae3

Bob Cobbing at CHELSEA space November 19th, 2014 - December 19th, 2014
Posted 12/10/14

On the wall of the gallery space at Chelsea College of Arts there is a screen on which a monochrome film plays out. It’s a transfer from an old tape marked at the edges with braided lines, strange interference artifacts of spooling marks in stark black and white framing the scene. The image of a room looks smoky, misty, colloidal, but that’s just the video. A man with a tight buzz cut stoops over a fire bucket, poised, an end-blown flute to his mouth, using the opening and the movement... [more]

Allen Ginsberg’s Photographs: The Unforgivable Passage of Time   Pick-button-5bf6c1b36c3b74ec8f312c7c9f6f1ae3

Allen Ginsberg at University of Toronto Art Centre September 2nd, 2014 - December 6th, 2014
Posted 10/24/14

An exhibition of Allen Ginsberg’s photographs, currently on view at the University of Toronto’s Art Centre, presents its audience with a large volume of stills taken by the poet between 1953 and 1996. Approximately 150 images hang on the walls of We are Continually Exposed to the Flashbulb of Death: The Photographs of Allen Ginsberg (1953-1996), representing some of Ginsberg’s most intimate documented moments that capture and immortalize an instance in time. The viewer’s re... [more]

Why Patti Loves Paris and Paris Loves Patti   Pick-button-5bf6c1b36c3b74ec8f312c7c9f6f1ae3

Posted 10/23/14

Patti loves Paris and Paris loves Patti, and the question that I’d ask is why? Now right at the beginning, up front, I need to make a few things clear. First, let me state that this relates to our FIAC coverage because Patti is performing at the most sought after, and possibly the only gig to feature as part of the FIAC programme. It's a reunion with John Cale, on Thursday night, at Fondation Cartier. Since this hardly seems sufficient to qualify my bold assertion I’ll also add th... [more]

Here are two poems from my poetry chapbook on Van Gogh (enjoy!): SELF-PORTRAIT WITH BANDAGED EARAND PIPE When the ear he had laid to resrefused to go back on, the hand caught holding the brush continued to paint all afternoon:to give the best it could its full attentionto what might come next. If I had to give it a name, the portrait's particular shade of red, I'd say it was diminishing-- that is to sa less of the manthan of the canvas beneath him; which is only to say much moreo...

Glass House (Excerpts of a book project) Box 2 Folder 12 Rain exhausts the earth: this is how all things begin. There is no error of nature no failed link, no thread which disentangled could draw us into the midst of truth. So. I am not proud of the translation which follows. But it is a key poem— one of the most characteristic and most beautiful. It is hoped that its curious and lovely quality may still be traceable through the metamorphosis. June 1, 2012 This is the history of a w... [more]

An invitation to re-draw conclusions; the editing of Karl Larsson   Pick-button-5bf6c1b36c3b74ec8f312c7c9f6f1ae3

Karl Larsson at Galerie Kamm June 28th, 2014 - August 9th, 2014
Posted 7/9/14

In October 2013, Joanna Kamm hosted the Karl Larsson exhibition Twelve Hours at her Berlin-Mitte gallery, Galerie Kamm. In 2014, a metaphorical twelve months later, the title has appeared in the gallery once again, playing host to a familiar roster of works save for select new additions. One such alteration is a shallow scratch in the plaster wall at the gallery’s entrance. The gash, Form Was Not Born From An Idea, It Was An Idea Vanishing, sets the tone for this re-visitation. The exhibi... [more]

There Are Metaphors Everywhere: Heather Phillipson, Art Brussels SOLO Projects   Pick-button-5bf6c1b36c3b74ec8f312c7c9f6f1ae3

Posted 4/22/14

Can art speak for itself? Heather Phillipson's voice is the deadpan monotone to hyper coloured installations and playfully bizarre videos: the ironic, non-plussed commentary to match the over-saturated, sardonic simulacra of our now everyday existence. Her voice accompanies us in the first-person, along with the sounds of dreamy love songs, navigating the open-ended narrative, through Freudian slips and homophones. For Phillipson, language is paramount; her other vocation, as a poet, confirms this. He... [more]

Being in Humble Uncertainty

[From a collection of prose focusing on Eastern European poets and their philosophies] 1. An idea is something you can’t undo, a perspective something you can’t take back. I will not apologize for saying the same things, reiterating the same thoughts over and over. Because I always find something new. There’s some connection I haven’t found. A word, a piece of understanding. A question asked in a different way. Exhausting ideas is how you find infinity You cannot make me... [more]

Nina Yuen at de Appel Arts Centre February 8th, 2014 - April 13th, 2014
Posted 2/27/14

Like a great pop song or a poem, Nina Yuen’s work enchants, making you feel like she’s speaking to you alone. Her performative films, which are currently on view at de Appel arts centre, bind the universal with the ultrapersonal. They fill the second floor of the Prins Hendrikkade space in an exhibition consisting mainly of these short, fantastical films of approximately six or seven minutes each, plus some prints titled as studies for her films Andoe and Lea. Although it is nice to see Yuen’s work in other m... [more]

1. There is a sadness about Sacramento The bridges I latched onto but never jumped from What I'd call the death before likeness to life the blue blanket over the birdcage and metaphors we used- to etch imagery into our hard skin here's to the hot and the dry (Clink!) the same air our ancestors got sucked in to every (un)settled wish I'm beginning to wonder Just because you can see the stars doesn't mean they'll catch your secrets or carry them far My words alone stand on dirt hills ...

Renaming the World: An Interview with Michael Tedja

1/12/14 Posted 1/12/14

Amsterdam, Jan. 2014: Few contemporary artists are as productive and versatile as Michael Tedja. The speed at which he paints and draws is nearly frantic; his output is enormous in quantity and size. But that’s only one aspect of his artistry. He has recorded music and lectures, published two novels and regularly submits essays to national and international magazines. Besides this he is active as a curator, runs a publishing company (DFI Publishers), and has over the years become a fixtur... [more]
