(Source: Youtube) It's hard to get a real sense of Forcefild's bizarre 'aesthetic' from description alone.  Thanks to the power of Youtube, their pulsating palm-tree dance sequence is at your fingertips. FORCEFIELD: video III For full video, click here. (Image: Courtesy Youtube) [more]

Martin Honert, Schlafsaal, 2009.

Plplplp Art Review: Aviary  
by
Céleste Boursier-Mougenot at Barbican Art Gallery February 27th, 2010 - May 23rd, 2010
Posted 4/19/10

In a gloriously original and creative move, Céleste Boursier-Mougenot’s first UK solo exhibition taps into an audiovisual buffet of nature.  At the Barbican’s ‘Aviary’, visitors find themselves unwitting participants in a dance of nature as birds ‘perform’ in an art installation. A dark space opens into a cheerful seaside promenade, complete with wooden decking and islands of sand and grass.  Curiously, Les Paul guitars, bass, and cymbals rest in these spaces.  As your senses adjust to the surro...

Flyer_small The EXQUISITE CORPSE VIDEO PROJECT (ECVP)  
by
Exquisite Corpse vol 1- 37 artists from 16 countries around the world at 16MM CAFE March 11th, 2010 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM
Posted 2/14/10

The project was inspired by the classic Surrealists' drawing method of the same name, Cadavre Exquis, in which a paper is folded so that each contributor sees only a small portion of the preceding artist's work. The ECVP participants created minute‐long video art segments in response to the final ten seconds of the previous filmmaker's work. Each participant was then asked to incorporate these seconds into their piece, creating transitions as they pleased, until everyone's vision was threaded tog... [more]

ROYAL COLLEGE OF ART DEGREE SHOW OVERVIEW  
by
6/8/09 Posted 6/8/09

ROYAL COLLEGE OF ART OVERVIEW   I caught the tail end of the Royal College of Art MA Fine Art and Sculpture degree shows this weekend. When I first found out that the sculpture department separated from the main campus a few years ago the first thing I thought was, what a shame. This really didn’t show a promotion of cross-departmental mixing that other fine art schools seem to.  After seeing both the RCA main campus show at South Kensington and the RCA Sculpture show in Battersea I now know...

Olivier Ruellet, "Ferro Scape"Disinformation and Usurp, "London Underground"Liminal: A Question of PositionRivington Place11 March - 25 April 09 - M.O. Berger, sawdustreview.wordpress.org There are some big ideas here. Probably too big, but the effort is inspirational in itself. Liminal starts with a story - one artist meets another artist, a spark of connection, a gathering of other like-minded artists, a collaboration. The ideas have to do with architecture - the information architecture of... [more]

Sean Snyder, IndexInstitute of Contemporary Arts12 Feb - 19 April 09 MO Berger, The Sawdust Reviewsawdustreview.wordpress.com There is nothing too exciting here, but that does not mean it is not worth checking out. The way the ICA gallery spaces are set up - cinema, café, and bookshop interspersed - they are on two different levels, which maybe makes it difficult to maintain that exclusive focus on the art while walking from the downstairs gallery to the next but which, it turns out, echoes th...

4 From the Sawdust Review:  
by
Sean Snyder at Institute of Contemporary Arts (ICA) February 12th, 2009 - April 19th, 2009
Posted 3/14/09

In these and in his re-presentations of propaganda films, Snyder is focused on the materiality of information - both how it can be molded to fit one's ends and how it exists not just as ideas and images, but bits of celluloid and silicon. This interrelation of the diverse pieces of the exhibition is what ultimately saves it from being a little too varied and sparse, and eventually allows it to live up to the photojournalism guidelines quoted in "Casio, Seiko, Sheraton, Toyota, Mars": "You should ha...
