Doing some research for my all bear fiction story.
It is not only Paola Pivi who has added some colour but also a medical threatment that turned the last polar bear purple in Argentina. It was only for a while though.
My polar bear has and will keep her funny colour till the end..of the story.
I am ultra-curious to see Camile Henrot’s show at Bétonsalon on the 20th of september. There was an inspiring text about how the exhibition took his name The Pale Fox. I can’t say that while i was reading about order and disorder, chaos and re-birth i wasn’t thinking about horoscopes but it’s only because there are such ancient concepts, primitive you can say that always existed or maybe a form of human re-assurance. I actually also like her thing about objects, as the question of the object in the art field is always intense and her role as a collector. I would like to go a little bit far away from her universe esthétique. As a fun of médiation documents of Pompidou i would like to suggest this one http://mediation.centrepompidou.fr/education/ressources/ENS-Object-EN/ENS-objet-EN.htm
It is for beginners of course but it’s great to go back to basics. I feel that in order to go on we have to take a look back and re-read the definitions. What it is an object?
Remediate the definition of object.
Remediate the everyday.
I was reading “The art performance, a critical anthology” and i was fascinated by some of the performers, mostly from troubled countries. Troubled countries is a quite a love and hate subject. Is Greece a troubled country? There is no war right? No apparent war at least but so many invisible everyday wars still. How can you identify yourself with lebanese people or how can you identify yourself with french people? Can you even identify yourself with a country?The performance apparently is about lebanese war and it is called who’s afraid of representation by Robin Mroué. In this video there is an extraordinary subject coming at last, the violence of the language.
Omer Fast. A video i watched like a year ago in London at my addiction fair, Frieze Art Fair. The everyday life of porno actors, a simultaneous narration as usual for Omer where the reality and fiction mix in a wonderful storytelling. And reality sometimes is more hardcore than fairytales. As my best friend moves to London, i have this british nostalgia.
Remediate the everyday over and over please.
