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.

MET

I usually visit MET when I feel I’m lost and pay $1 and wandering around, especially alienated rooms. It’s been a while to visit modern and contemporary galleries, and there was a shark of Damian Hirst. Turner was not good.

Ju Gosling aka ju90, Fight

“Fight is a film-dance. It explores themes of growing up and coming out as disabled and of developing Disability Pride. It shows the fight for self-awareness and self-acceptance, which everybody has to go through at some point in their lives. It is also a self-portrait.”


Lihua Lei, Phantom Pain

I visited this exhibition yesterday. Some works are inspiring such as Fight by Ju Gosling and Phantom Pain by Lihua Lei.

I should contact with VSA arts who organized and curated this. I’m thinking to make an art educational material for students with disabilities emphasis in media art. Anyway, what is the media art? I’m not sure what it is.
