ArtSEEN 5 at the printers!

Presenting - ArtSEEN journal Spring '07
issue 5 Year 2


Well, the pre-printing time is always a very busy period – which accounts for the silence on the blog. It’s the weeks that see us translating articles; chasing galleries for images; passing the translations to our precious Editorial Consultants who work on them further; doing the lay-out.
Thus, ArtSEEN Spring ’07 – issue 5, which is our first official birthday issue as well, is now at the printers!
It was put together in Vienna. Ya. Vienna. Because travelling is more and more a big part of my life, and every few weeks see me somewhere else.

That said, I’m going back to Cagliari, Sardegna this week, having been invited by Mauro Cossu to present our collaborative sound-art performance at the Architecture Faculty of the University of Cagliari, during their international workshop SEW07 (http://www.sew07.it/ facolt√† di architettura dell'Universit√† di Cagliari, politecnico di Milano e OMA di Rotterdam).

And that is just one of the trips waiting for me in the next few weeks!

We’ve already started working on ArtSEEN 6 – Summer ’07, and planning all the various trips to Venice, and Germany. Actually, now that I’ve written this, I have just remembered a few emails that need writing, with are a few days overdue, due to the lay-out of the Spring SEEN…

And, we’ll have our new website up and running very very soon!!!!

A presto then!

Goodbye

"The order of the world is always right - such is the judgment of God. For God has departed, but he has left his judgment behind, the way the Cheshire Cat left his grin."

Low Rent: London Scene


And one thing I have to say about White Cube is that they had the best exhibition on in London for late February/early March. It was simple and somewhat obvious if even strange. A three person show but somehow they made it work. A painter, an artist who did big prints that were photocopied and blown up, and a video artist who took a lot of previously done film footage and put it all together.

Spiritually the show was about a 1 out of 10. But most galleries in London are that. That's what I find comical. All the other galleries are bad imitations of White Cube which is why White Cube always has the best shows.

And that my friends is where The Black Box comes in.

A Drawing

I found myself drawing tonight, and I would like to share a small part of the documentation of the process with you.
This drawing was not intended to, but ended up following the lunar eclipse. It came to full darkness at 23.47, a few minutes after the moon did so too.
The drawing was made by repeatedly writing “I Love You” within the round frame hanging on the wall in my studio.
Once the full covering was achieved, I proceeded to “uncover” the surface, initially by using a rubber eraser, but then I remembered I had some sand paper in the house (much easier).
