hello... it's been a while... I posted in a past life... the boards are looking nice and shiny Chi Chi... keep up the good work

my latest obsession is Mathew Barney... one must appreciate a man who has procreated with Bjork and constantly uses his rectum in his performances

the Cremaster series are a dream .... really... about as close to a dream as I have seen anyone come to (at least my dreams) and for that I adore them

hola popi....

funny this post gets tapped... I had no clue that Mr. Barney was so close to home yet again... I visited MoMA 2 days ago and they are showing a piece by him "Pace Car for the Hubris Pill"

from the program :

"Barney treats the body as a malleable, structurally modifiable field that can be turned inside out and worked upon to transgress its own limits."

ahhh... my obsession grows...

Sounds like Matthew is doing a whole "number" for this show.
The Guggenheim presentation is larger in scope than it was at the European venues, and it will feature a site-specific installation designed by the artist to encapsulate and conclude the entire project.

I wonder if Michael O'Brien's photograohs will be in the show? They are amazing. (in case anyone hasn't seen them)
hey there...

oh! I hope that his images will be part of this greatness as it was what first pulled my attention...

I did not know that Mr.O'Brien was responsible for that infamous picture of Pearl as well... speaking of which whatever became of the stunning Pearl? He must have a post here...and if not he should...

the fifth cremaster he made, i believe its cremaster 3, that came out this past summer, is my favorite. its three hours, indiana joneseqsue parts, his own father stars in one scene. it was really a wonderful wonderful beautifully photographed masterpiece. honestly, the cremaster series are not just movies, they are sculptures. timeless sculptures of fantasies and dreams, filled with idiosynchracies, morals, and ironies.
I think the first MB photo installation I saw was on the subway. I couldnt tear my eyes away from it all the way from battery park to union square. It was a photo of all these smiling chinese alien girl heads circled around a male alien head floating in an ambrosia-like substance. completely enthralling. possibly because they looked so funny and sweet and weird!

I went this past Monday, caught Cremasters 1 & 2, and saw part of the exhibition. It's mindblowing. And I was shocked at how the entire museum (the structure itself) is just transformed into his piece. I suggest getting a 2day pass, because there is just so much to take in. You don't have to use the pass in 2 consecutive days, either.

Marti was beautiful in Cremaster 1! Translated as sexy, whimsical tension.

Can't wait to get back to catch the rest.
