My response to Art Fag Cities' Paddy Johnshons review of the Werner Herzog work at the 2012 Whitney Biennial, also mentioned in CAPITAL magazine.  PARIS — In a recent article on AFC, Paddy Johnson argues that Werner Herzog’s piece in this year’s Whitney Biennial is essentially a throwaway. She sees Herzog’s contribution as a quick fix for inclusion that relies mainly on “bells and whistles” rather than substance. But her account is conspicuously reactionary and seems to be more of a response to... [more]

“Be advised that the fourth floor galleries will be closing in about fifteen minutes for Sarah Michelson’s performance,” I was told when I arrived at the Whitney ticket counter, “So you should probably begin your visit there.” Yeesh. Fifteen minutes for an entire floor? I’d better hurry, I thought, as I dashed to the elevator. On the fourth floor, one of Michelson’s dancers was warming up, stretching her limbs out with a couple quick pas-de-bourrées over the dance floor—a site-specific work in i... [more]

Art review: 'Supernatural' @ Jancar Gallery August 20, 2010 |  6:30 am The supernatural was a linchpin for art in every culture since time immemorial – at least until the science-infused modern era said, “Hold on.” The inflation of nature into something super, whether volcanoes as terrible pathways linking the underworld to the heavens, resurrection as a triumph over death or constellations as symbols of heroes and deities, typically served as a means...

          The first time I saw Dawn Kasper perform she sat, covered in fake blood, in an old wrecked light blue Toyota Corolla parked in the lot of the Bergamot Station gallery compound (Los Angeles). Though meant to look as if she'd died in the accident, her makeup was theatrical and crude. When I saw her later, walking around with blood still caked on her forehead, Kasper was so animated and crackling with anxious energy as to erase any lingering memory of the dead girl in the car. In intervening... [more]

Essentially a painting exhibition—the only exception a small antennae sculpture by Krysten Cunningham suspended from the ceiling—the Feelings and Power opening at Five Thirty Three also featured music from Jason Grier and Tha Jones and a remarkable performance by artist Dawn Kasper. Opening parties are without a doubt the best way to experience shows in this space; billed as “an exhibition of art and music,” it would seem that 50% of this show left the building after opening night. Kasper’s p... [more]

Posted 10/28/07

Dawn Kasper is a young, LA-based artist working mostly in performance, and many of those performances are meticulous, disturbing and dryly funny stagings of “her” own death—or at least the death of a character she has carefully created and then only left traces of for the performance visitor to reconstruct as if Kasper’s performance installations were art-decorated crime scenes. They’re much more than that, though, and this is evident walking into Circus Gallery, which is for the first t... [more]
