Ostashov

On a recent trip to Georgia I discovered the astounding work of Andrey Ostashov at The Georgian National Museum in Tbilisi, where about 50 stone and bronze sculptures and about 25 graphic works were presented in his solo exhibition, Elements – Sculpture and Graphics. “Bronze girls with unthinkable hairdos dressed in haute couture, astride dragons. Resurgent dolls, Pegasi and teddy bears. Appealing Asian hunters, refined Buddhist monks and uncompromising Amazons. Auld-farrant soldiers –...

Elizabeth Grosz: Chaos. Cosmos, Territory, Architecture

“If painting aims to make every organ function as an eye, if it aims to make the very entrails see, and if music makes every organ and pore of the body function as an ear attuned to rhythm and melody, if, as Deleuze suggests, painting ever more deeply materializes the body while music spiritualizes it, this is because, through the various arts, the body is, for a moment at least, directly touched by the forces of chaos from which it so carefully shields itself in habit, cliché, and doxa, those...

Jacques-Henri Lartigue at Michael Hoppen

Luiz Zanotello: The New Velocity

Luiz Zanotello: The New Velocity

The New Velocity, by Luiz Zanotello, is a machine that plots the phantom Sandy Island in digital means. By reproducing the same phenomenological conditions upon which the island was seen in 1876, it seeks to reinsert the charting glitch that endured in worldwide maps until 2012. The machine records new datasets that support the further existence of the island by manipulating its digital...
