CHEW THE FAT - OFFICIAL TRAILER AND HOMEPAGE

Photobucket

Thanks, Flo! The Trailer is online!

I worked as a consultant/editor on this for a year! Cheers to Rirkrit!

Official synopsis by Raimar Stange:
"Just say it – in his feature film "CHEW THE FAT“, 2008, Rirkrit Tiravanija meets up with twelve international artists of his own generation. He takes a stroll in the Californian desert with Andrea Zittel; in Berlin he visits Angela Bulloch, as well as the recently arrived Douglas Gordon. He relaxes with Elizabeth Peyton on her porch on Long Island, NY, before hooking up with Jorge Pardo in his spacious Los Angeles studio. Upping the pace of what begins like a roadmovie, he checks e-mails in New York with Liam Gillick, receives a visit in Thailand from Pierre Huyghe, and inspects Carsten Höller's birdcage in Stockholm. Then he enjoys a glass of wine in Paris with Philippe Parreno, and saunters along the Seine with Dominique Gonzales-Förster. Finally, with Tobias Rehberger, he rides a train across Germany. The only absence is Maurizio Cattalan, who is nonetheless present in everyone else's memories.

If this sounds varied and entertaining, that is exactly what it is. But the relaxed mood of these meetings in locations chosen by the artists themselves also makes for pleasantly focused yet far-reaching conversations. Tiravanija begins each talk by asking the artist to tell him about his or her motivation and art education. What happens next is left to chance: the topics covered in "Chew the fat“ range from the Football World Championships to current art projects; from street cleaning in Paris to structural changes in artists' working conditions since the 1990s. High and low, life and art are intentionally yet casually intermingled; participants discuss the value of art as a commodity and as entertainment; again and again the materialness of art objects is eclipsed by discussions of key temporal and spatial relations. While each one of the twelve conversations is unique, they share one aspect: playfully yet searchingly they adress reflections and ideas that have made art so fascinating since the 1990s.

Rirkrit Tiravanija made "Chew the fat“ in the context of twelve individual artist portraits created over the past several years. A must-see!

MACHINES FROM A PAST THAT NEVER WAS

Photobucket
we make money not art: "Robert Kusmirowski does copies, simulacra, forgeries, mock-ups. Meticulously and masterfully. The result of his craft is an illusion. You believe you're in front of a relic from the past, complete with patina: a sepia photography, old newspapers, cigarette packs, but also a graveyard, the wagon of a '40s train or an entire train station.
(...)
The Polish artist currently has two works in Turin, one is UHER.C at Guida Costa Projects. The second one, DATAmatic 880, is on show at the Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo as part of the Turin Triennale."

// A R T E F A C T

Very interesting new site from Croatia: / a r t e f a c t: "While some speak of power strategies, it appears to us to be much more justified to join those who not only talk about but also create strategies of resistance. And it is for this purpose that we have started up the on-line magazine ART-e-FACT, intending, in the digital age - in which power lies neither in institutions nor on the streets but on the Web, that is, in the communications system - to seek and to encourage possible answers, exchanging ideas about the burning questions of both culture and art, and of society at large.

ART-e-FACT, then, not at all accidentally, is not just a magazine for contemporary art and culture. It is above all an open and public forum for the critical consideration of society, of new practices in art, their interaction with the theory and politics of presentation in an artistic and indeed a non-artistic context."

ONLINE THEATRE : ALL THE WEB'S A STAGE

Very interesting story in The Independent: "Theatre company Punchdrunk is renowned for pushing board-treading boundaries. Since its foundation in 2000, it has won praise from critics and audiences for shows in which participants are free to choose what they watch and where they go. (...)

Punchdrunk has teamed up with games company Hide & Seek, Hewlett-Packard research arm HP Labs and online design firm Seeper to create a 'hybrid experience' between real and computer-generated worlds. And at first glance it seems very different to the average console adventure.
(...)
Last Will begins with two players walking into disconcerting darkness. Both are led through a series of "tunnels" hemmed in by drapes that hang either side of a dim, central corridor. The players then split up. My gaming partner for the evening, Ben, enters a "physical" realm – several interconnected rooms in the warehouse which have been made up to look like an elaborate theatre set. Meanwhile I enter a "virtual realm", which is a dark room in which sits – less glamorously – a computer workstation and headphones. Without wishing to give away details of the plot to would-be players, it's the story of an old man in trouble – whom both players have to help.

To do this, I must navigate through a computer-generated version of the physical space in which Ben is located. I'm charged with solving a number of puzzles, which involves clicking on various objects within a computer-generated room in sequence. I later discover that my actions within the virtual world are having effects in the physical world – such as unlocking doors. "

Vote McGovern by Andy Warhol, 1972
Licensed by ARS & VISCOPY, Australia

The American Master Printer, Kenneth Tyler was keen to invite Andy Warhol to make prints at his Gemini GEL workshop in Los Angeles in the late 1960s and early 1970s. Unfortunately no long-lasting collaboration with Warhol was possible, but the artist did produce one print work at the workshop in support of the Democratic party’s presidential candidate George McGovern."

THE KILLING MACHINE

Photobucket

The Guardian: Adrian Searle on The Killing Machine an installation by Janet Cardiff and George Bures Miller: "The Killing Machine is based on the device in Kafka's 1919 short story In the Penal Colony. This has never struck me as one of Kafka's better works. At the heart of the tale is a fiendish mechanised harrow that carves or tattoos the sentence handed down to the prisoner into his flesh. Kafka seems to relish his detailing of all the embellishments and refinements too much. The artists, according to the catalogue, were also thinking about the death penalty in America.

The Killing Machine comes at the very end of their exhibition. It is the coup de grâce, the finale, the main attraction. But it's a flop. No one is even mildly appalled. We've seen and heard too much for this to touch us. Show us how waterboarding works. Show me those pictures from Abu Ghraib again, or those things the junta did down in Argentina. How about a public stoning? Compared with real life, this is entertainment."

TONIGHT: CHEW THE FAT - WORLD PREMIERE AT THE GUGGENHEIM MUSEUM IN NEW YORK

Photobucket

A toast to the artist! I worked as a consultant/editor on this for a whole year!

Rirkrit Tiravanija - CHEW THE FAT
Sundays at 1 p.m. and 3 p.m.
Mondays at 2 p.m. and 3:30 p.m.
Friday, November 14, and Tuesday, December 2, at 8 p.m.
In conjunction with the exhibition, Tiravanija’s documentary film provides a perspective on the art of the 1990s through interviews with artists, including those participating in the exhibition.

Part of the Theanyspacewhatever (October 24, 2008–January 7, 2009, Guggenheim, New York)

INFO: "During the 1990s a number of artists claimed the exhibition as their medium. Working independently or in various collaborative constellations, they eschewed the individual object in favor of the exhibition environment as a dynamic arena, ever expanding its physical and temporal parameters. Using the museum as a springboard for work that reaches beyond the visual arts, their work often commingles with other disciplines such as architecture, design, and theater, engaging directly with the vicissitudes of everyday life to offer subtle moments of transformation. This loose affiliation of artists, each of whom now boasts strong, independent careers, periodically and randomly joins forces to create a variety of projects. The Guggenheim Museum has extended an invitation to a core group of these artists—Angela Bulloch, Maurizio Cattelan, Liam Gillick, Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster, Douglas Gordon, Carsten Höller, Pierre Huyghe, Jorge Pardo, Philippe Parreno, and Rirkrit Tiravanija—to collectively formulate a scenario for an exhibition, one that will reflect and articulate the unique nature of their practices. Organized by the museum’s Chief Curator, Nancy Spector, in close collaboration with the artists, the exhibition will present a genealogy of their shared history through site-specific installations of new, often self-reflexive works created on the occasion of this project."

THE VILLAGE PETSTORE AND CHARCOAL GRILL

Photobucket
Supertouchart.com: "Street art aficionados and cynical phenomenologists (we don’t know any of those) have been long awaiting SIR BANKSY’s official New York debut but surely even the most imaginative punter couldn’t have guessed that the Bristol Bad Boy’s first show in the Apple would come in the form of a mock pet store with nothing inside for sale.

That’s exactly what the “street art” king’s adoring public got, however, when the doors to The Village Petstore and Charcoal Grill opened at 89 7th Avenue (between Bleeker and West 4th) last Thursday, October 9th, revealing what seemed from the outside to be a small West Village pet shop stocked not with purring kittens and wiggly puppies, but a more sinister menagerie. Inside, animatronic chicken nuggets, porno watching monkeys, coexisted alongside ageing tweety birds,
swimming fish sticks, and suggestively writing caged hot dogs, in what can only be described as an entirely unique visual critique of the state of animal husbandry in the modern world. In the words of Banksy himself, “New Yorkers don’t care about art, they care about pets. So I’m exhibiting them instead. I wanted to make art that questioned our relationship with animals and the ethics and sustainability of factory farming, but it ended up as chicken nuggets singing. I took all the money I made exploiting an animal in my last show and used it to fund a new show about the exploitation of animals. If its art and you can see it from the street, I guess it could still be considered street art.” The show is open for viewing from 10am—12am daily and remains on view until Halloween."

Visit The Village Petstore and Charcoal Grill on the web and watch the videos.
