  • The Expectation of Spectacle: an Interview with Mike Nelso …

    2019.01.16 · 发表评论

    We interviewed the British artist Mike Nelson on the occasion of his monumental intervention at the OGR in Turin; a large wooden structure, leads into the space, resembling a large billboard or the screen of a drive-in, once beyond it visitors find themselves inside a dimly lit environment where, amid pressed rubble, there are about twenty parked cars, covered with dust and in complete abandon. Different epochs and genres collide within the installation: a recent past rubs against an almost archaeological dimension (or perhaps a near future?), the rubble on the floor reeks of precariousness, an ambiguity between a recent demolition, an in-progress apocalypse whilst hinting to the potential of reconstruction, together creating an overwhelming tone of expectation and suspense. – 我们采访了英国艺术家迈克·尼尔森,当时他在都灵的“食人魔”进行了一次具有纪念意义的干预活动。这是一个巨大的木结构,通向太空,就像一个巨大的广告牌或一个开车进去的屏幕,一旦超过它,游客就会发现自己置身于一个光线暗淡的环境中,在被压的碎石中,大约有20辆车停在那里。汽车,被灰尘覆盖,完全废弃。不同的时代和体裁在装置内发生了碰撞:最近的过去与几乎考古的层面(或者可能是不久的将来)发生了摩擦。地板上的碎石散发出不稳定的气息,在最近的一次拆迁中模糊了,在暗示重建潜力的同时,正在进行的天启,共同创造了一种压倒一切的期待和悬念。

  • Looking Back 2018: Motherhood and Other Stories – 回 …

    2018 was a remarkable and remarkably exhausting year for me, mostly because I had my second child a year and a half after having my first. Now I have a one-year-old and a two-year-old, work full time and live 600 miles from New York City; my ability to visit exhibitions and attend events there (and anywhere outside of Columbus, Ohio where I live) has been hamstrung. But motherhood has opened up other channels. A significant one is the world of new books, especially books about motherhood. This was a remarkable year for texts on the subject, so long ghettoized by artists and writers alike. Reading these books was like holding up a mirror to a face that didn’t know it had a reflection. – 2018年对我来说是一个非常显著和令人疲惫的一年,主要是因为我有了第一个孩子一年半之后有了第二个孩子。现在我有一岁和两岁,全职工作,住在离纽约市600英里的地方;我在那里参观展览和参加活动的能力(以及我所居住的俄亥俄州哥伦布市以外的任何地方)一直受到阻碍。但是做母亲打开了其他渠道。其中很重要的一点是新书的世界,尤其是有关母性的书。在这一年里,有关这个主题的文章非常精彩,艺术家和作家们长期聚居在一起。读这些书就像拿着一面镜子面对着一张不知道镜子有倒影的脸。

  • New York Film Festival 2018: Home to Experimental Works wi …

    The Projections sidebar of the 2018 New York Film Festival – home of a variety of works grouped together under the experimental/avant-garde banner – is perhaps not the first place that one would go in search of star performances in the traditional sense, but then this year’s opening night film, Gabriel Abrantes and Daniel Schmidt’s Diamantino (2018) is nothing if not an outlier. A populist underground film doing blockbuster scale on a budget, it gives Carloto Cotta, in the title role, as good a comic role as any actor has had this year. He plays a dull-minded, chisel-chested Portuguese footballer with a Cristiano Ronaldo-esque sartorial sensewhose grinning guilelessness makes him an easy manipulated mark for a right-wing junta bent on pulling off a mad science scheme that will lead to the country’s exit from the EU.     – 2018年纽约电影节的《放映》侧栏——各种作品汇集在一起,打着实验/前卫的旗号——也许不是人们在传统意义上寻找明星表演的第一站,但是今年的首个夜场却开始了。M,Gabriel Abrantes和Daniel Schmidt的Diamantino Diamantino(2018)不是孤立点。这是一部在预算上制作大片的民粹主义地下电影,它让卡洛托·科塔在片名中扮演了与今年任何演员一样好的喜剧角色。他饰演一位头脑迟钝、胸膛尖刻的葡萄牙足球运动员,有着克里斯蒂亚诺·罗纳尔多式的裁缝感,露齿而笑的朴实无华使他成为右翼军政府容易操纵的标志,而右翼军政府一心想搞出一个疯狂的科学计划,导致葡萄牙退出欧盟。γ

  • Activists’s Subversion of ‘I’m Too Sexy To Have AIDS’ Slog …

    2018.10.18 · 发表评论

    On Sunday 6 October members of ACT UP London, activists fighting the HIV pandemic, spray-painted over a series of posters by the late artist and HIV-AIDS activist David McDiarmid. Art space Studio Voltaire had been celebrating his work by posting his colourful ‘Rainbow Aphorisms’ (1993–95) slogans across South London. But the activists took exception to one which read: ‘I’M TOO SEXY TO HAVE AIDS’. They painted over the message, so it read instead: ‘I’M TOO SEXY AND I HAVE HIV’. – 10月6日星期日,伦敦艾滋病防治行动的成员们,为已故艺术家和艾滋病防治活动家David McDiarmid的一系列海报喷漆。伏尔泰艺术空间工作室在伦敦南部张贴了五彩缤纷的“彩虹格言”(1993-95)来庆祝他的作品。但是活动家们对一个例外说:“我太性感了,没有爱滋病。”他们在邮件中画了一个字母,所以它读到:“我太性感了,我得了HIV”。
