Shadow, summer, and New York

April 26th, 2009 No comments

It was a heavy snowy day on March 2nd, and was a sweltering night yesterday in April. I saw the shadow of Calder’s sculpture through windows of MoMA. Summer suddenly comes. The city needs shower to be cooled.

Van Cliburn competition

February 18th, 2009 No comments
The last couple of days, I’ve attending theĀ screening audition recitals for theĀ Thirteenth Competition of Van Cliburn International Piano Competition at Rockefeller University. I always appreciate classical music performers in that they make me possible to meet the great composers. Although I’ve attended recitals of many virtuosos in New York, I love to go to these kinds of competition because it’s more immersive than big concert halls and there is a chance to listen a piece of contemporary music or rarely played one. This time, I could meet A. J. Kernis’s Superstar Etude No.2 and Medtner’s Sonata tragica, Op. 39, No. 5 among others. You can watch the live stream online at www.cliburn.org during May 22 – Jun 7, 2009 when the competition is held in Fort Worth, Texas.

Dali @ MoMA

July 26th, 2008 No comments

The focus on this Dali MoMA special exhibition was film. I’ve been to Rome’s and Seoul’s before and it was different. When considering it’s power, I’d say the Rome’s was the best. I dreamed a nightmare at the night since I had got too much shock.

Dali’s works has a magical power that stops me to take a look wherever I see. He is not my favorite artist but I don’t think his works are awkward or disgusting. One thought is that I should do many works in many ways.

Anyway, the MoMA exhibition was quite disappointing. I may visit several times more to look at a slow tempo but I basically don’t like a film. Looking quite ugly edited video, I think my coding could be work even if I did not so good when it has a great concept.

After nature @ New Museum

July 25th, 2008 No comments

New museum is a contemporary museum. It’s difficult to understand, feel that one may say why this is art. Last trip to Europe, the first city, the first museum, the first piece of art was a horse by Maurizio Cattelan. A news that the horse is coming leads me to the museum. Artworks described an after the civilization. A decayed angel, human remains which helps a dead tree stand.

An impressive thing was performance of a girl on the floor. A thought after quite long observation was that was she showing prepared movements or random movements. There might be some difference but I think the both are originally same. A body the girl has was only one and she may definitely have familiar movements with the body. An important thing is a process that breaking the familiar barrier.
