Posted 6/16/14

The Dreiländereck (literally, “angle of the three countries”) rises up on the northern end of the Kleinhuningen Port in Basel. It’s a metal pillar, resembling a silver screwed missile, oriented towards the sky and signaling the exact point where three nations—Switzerland, France, Germany—meet together. Basel is a city wedged into the core of Europe; it’s a border town, stuck in the offshoots of Swiss mountains and split in two by an ample bight of the Rhin... [more]

On the face of it, this exhibition, Néon. Who’s Afraid of Red, Yellow and Blue? is just plain fun. With the Maison Rouge all lit up in different colored neon lights, both industrially produced and hand-crafted  tubes bringing the walls to life, inviting us to walk into spaces saturated in impossible colors. A visit to Néon is ostensibly a joyful, light way to spend an afternoon. Then as we quickly realize, neon has more to it than meets the eye. Neon lights may look pretty, but they are... [more]

Posted 1/8/12

A few years ago I came across a zine that was called something like “365 Orgasms” or “A Year of Orgasms.” Basically it was a single guy’s masturbation diary with “how to get the most out of self love” tips. One entry described how you could use a rubber band as a cock ring, and if you twisted it like the infinity sign you could also wrap it around your balls. Trust me, I am going somewhere with this. The other entry I remember was that if you masturbate on the toilet, and time it just right so th... [more]

Pierre Bismuth at SMART Project Space November 27th, 2011 - February 5th, 2012
Posted 12/26/11

Pierre Bismuth's solo show in Amsterdam has a lengthy and quite self-explanatory title. Clearly, there is some irony to the artist's take on our tech-powered, creativity-infested age. We seem to be elated about mass-produced ideas, on a dumb - yet sophisticated - capitalistic high. We invest objects (and their creators, be them architects or artists) with powers that are supposed to heal our society. Or at least our individual, boring lives, anesthetized by an overstimulating flux of televised or crowd... [more]

Posted 8/20/11

The collection is S.M.A.K.’s DNA and reflects the museum’s core identity as the pivot between recent art history and current trends. S.M.A.K.’s acquisition policy has developed organically over the years and has three distinct levels. Firstly, the museum strives to form an ensemble around the oeuvre of a select group of artists. Instead of representing an artist with just a single work, S.M.A.K. aims to collect an oeuvre in depth in order to present it in all its complexity. Secondly, there is a sub... [more]

Pierre Bismuth, Michel Gondry at BFI Southbank Gallery September 12th, 2008 - November 23rd, 2008
Posted 10/27/08

The new Gallery commission at BFI Southbank is a collaboration between visual artist Pierre Bismuth and acclaimed film director Michel Gondry. For the BFI they have created a new version of The All-seeing Eye, an installation which explores, this time in the visual arts field, the themes at the core of the feature movie Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, directed by Gondry and based on an original idea by Bismuth, and for which they got the 2005 Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay,...

Posted 10/6/08

With an intriguing title like Occupancy by More Than 6'682'685'387 Persons is Dangerous and Unlawful - Part One, Pierre Bismuth's show at Cosmic Galerie promises some unexpected twists. The whole show, in fact, is a twist: each work in the show is created as a collaboration between Bismuth and another artist on the theme of Bismuth's own work, but beyond the notion of collaboration, the notion of sabotage and appropriation enters the equation, as each work challenges the notion of authorship and...
