HUMANS HAVE HUNGER FOR HUMANITY, DOES DOGS (THIS IS JUST A METAPHOR YOU CAN THINK OF ANY OTHER NON LIVING ANIMAL LIKE FRIDGE, SOFA, WASHING MACHINE, AUTOMOBILES TOO) HAVE HUNGER FOR DOGITY!  LoL

Posted 1/21/15

Zakir Hussain’s latest works at Gallery SKE in Bangalore is a wonderful presentation of works to understand that originality can only be claimed as an unclaimed, seen as the other in the final omnipresent grand narrative of itself. The claim to originality that his works make in the beginning is by having a title ‘no title’. This is very interesting as the self proclamation of having no title negates the presence of the trace of the past. If there is any c... [more]

Robots Lost at Sea: Tracking an Artwork Adrift in the Atlantic Ocean

On September 9th, a robot was released into the Gulf of Mexico, set adrift in the Gulf Stream. Off the southern tip of Portugal its transatlantic counterpart awaits sendoff into the strong Canary Current this week. Once offshore, these passive robots—floating spheres one-meter in diameter with sensors submerged below sea level—will be left on their own, without human intervention. Their mission: to unite in the middle of the Atlantic, carried only by currents and the forces of nat... [more]

Being John Malkovich: Artist Recreates Classic Photographs with John Malkovich's Face  
by
9/23/14 Posted 9/23/14

Sandro Miller, David Bailey / Mick Jagger "Fur Hood" (1964), 2014 Photographer Sandro Miller just face swapped 35 seminal photographs with John Malkovich's face. Get it? John Malkovich is one of the greatest actors of all time who can convincingly embody any role like no other. The only thing more shocking about seeing Malkovich's face on John Lennon's naked body is that no one has done it before. Brilliant. The forthcoming exhibition, Malkovich, Malkovich, Malkovich, is not just a creepy tribut... [more]

Published in http://www.artindiamag.com/quarter_04_03_14/index.html Acts of drawing are sometimes summed up as dirtying the paper delicately,1 but Ayesha Sultana’s drawings in Outside the field of view, her first solo at Experimenter, Kolkata, mounted from the 9th of May to the 26th of June, are anything but delicate. Sultana ‘dirties’ the paper vigorously and obsessively, while reining in her mark-marking within perfectly geometric shapes. Nine graphite drawings of various si... [more]

Posted 9/1/14

To borrow a thought from Deleuze and Guattari, art is not chaos, but a composition of chaos that makes possible a wide range of unpredictable new emotions and ideas. It pushes at the borders of the imagination, inviting new ways of seeing, and sharping our capacities for critical reflection. Truly powerful art may even change how we perceive our world, and re-situate our agency within it. The Mike Kelley retrospective (currently on view at LA MoCA), reminds me of a quote by filmmaker David Lyn... [more]

Posted 7/14/14

Los Angeles Times Review By: Leah Ollman Simryn Gill's quietly stunning photographic series, "My Own Private Angkor," focuses on a housing development in a seaside town in Malaysia. The complex was built in the 1980s, but never occupied. Over time looters have stripped the site of salable metals. Surfaces have eroded. Dried leaves pile up on the floors and vines creep through the window openings. Gill's pictures, largely of abandoned domestic interiors, speak of both promise and ruin, of p... [more]
