.iEat colors, iVomit colors – do U?!?

U know this?! I know it more then a year ago and for me this is just stupid. OK I am not very into d colors, hell yea but this is something that goes into weird direction and can be bad influence for d new generations. :3

Pedagogically she needs to go to hospital ASAP, for sure she’s not doin’ good things for her stomach. Anyway, here it is:

Some people will do anything in the name of art. Performance artist Millie Brown has mastered the art of regurgitation, and we mean that literally. Brown’s work is called “Nexus Vomitus,” which involves Brown drinking colored milk and then spewing it back out onto white screens to an acoustic accompaniment of opera singers Patricia Hammond and Zita Syme.

Those of you who have seen Lady Gaga’s Moster Ball will already be familiar with Brown’s work. In a video interlude, Brown vomits color onto Gaga’s dress.

12~ and if u want more pictures find on internet! 😀

:RIP Sir Mike Kelley [1ox for d madness]

.

.I just heard this bad news from friend of mine L.P. Ponor about d apparent suicide of d famous contemporary artist Mike Kelley [1954 – January 31, 2012 or February 1, 2012]. He is/ was attractive with his works, controversial, as this last information is actually.

.
Kelley’s work involved found objects, textile banners, drawings, assemblage, collage, performance and video. He often worked collaboratively and had done projects with artists Paul McCarthy, Tony Oursler and John Miller. Kelley was often associated with the concept of abjection.” [from wikipedia]

:Episode #117: Mike Kelley sets the record straight about being called a “bad boy” throughout his career, describing the shifting tastes of critics and artists towards abject art in recent years.

.

.

Mike Kelley’s work ranges from highly symbolic and ritualistic performance pieces, to arrangements of stuffed-animal sculptures, to wall-sized drawings, to multi-room installations that restage institutional environments (schools, offices, zoos), to extended collaborations with artists such as Paul McCarthy, Tony Oursler, and the band Sonic Youth. His work questions the legitimacy of ‘normative’ values and systems of authority, and attacks the sanctity of cultural attitudes toward family, religion, sexuality, art history, and education. He also comments on and undermines the legitimacy of the concept of victim or trauma culture, which posits that almost all behavior results from some form of repressed abuse. Kelley’s aesthetic mines the rich and often overlooked history of vernacular art in America, and his practice borrows heavily from the confrontational, politically conscious “by all means necessary” attitude of punk music.

.

.. I prefer in this case to make photo story, His work speaks more then what I can say in d moment.. big lost for d history of contemporary art, I don’t see reason why he’ve done this but anyway this are works that will stay as respected perspectives in d conceptual arts.
.

.

:I don't know why but I specially like this. ..psychedelic! ;)

.

.

.he deserves more words from me, but I am pretty sure that during this year I’ll make observation of his master pieces, there are a lot of missing projects here. .. this is just to show d respect for this artist! Rest In Peace Sir & thanks for all d art madness!

!ladies & gentleman, madame Marina Abramovic ~

.

.

.

!for sure I’ll write about this project. U know Marina Abramovic? Do u know what is she doin’? – she is changing d modern history of art like no one before. Every new project is something deeper then d thing before, but they are all somehow connected.

Yes, I already start with my impressions that I get from her works, and I really hope in future to be in her surrounding [somehow] 😉
..so happy that finally my white blog will have story about/ with her. .. and it’s smthing totally new from her, fresh as fish we say here..

I will not speak from my name as regular before about d works, I think only that this is d best performance I saw till now and for sure d best for 2011. she engaged, animate so many people, and d message is clear as always.. don’t worry nobody was crying with her in MoMA this time, this time it was even more bizarre, they all eat human body. .. just kidding 😀

.

.

!it is pretty good dinner though, I was part of similar performance actually theater show from d script Father by August Strindberg and d visitors were on same dinner table as d actors and there was action in d middle .. btw it was theater, this here is without words, she is speaking even more then d father with this skeleton on d top of her and under she naked. Music, small “reading flash-mob”, food all at all amazing gala performance. Was it to much theatrical this time, yes it was, I don’t know why so interaction and why so many famous people, probably because of d publicity (hmm.. Marina this is goin in ‘monster’ direction) but still from other side she as personality have something in her that is giving eternal vibration to all of her works.

.

.

There were surprised faces, shocked, lost. .. and some who enjoy this weirdly way of showing d evolution of contemporary art and braking d barriers between everything known till now. Conceptual, it was like thousands before, have no idea why some other performance also interactive, engaging haven’t been highlighted till now in d media and promoted as this one but probably she order this place for her. Order from God absolutely. Was there some deeper concept?

AN ARTIST'S LIFE MANIFESTO

.

‘art is oxygen of our society’ as she says in d beginning….

..

I found about this project via artinfo, happy that I follow them over 2 years already on twitter and this is first time to use their content, but Marina is a world citizen and their words about her works spectacular, so in d next lines u read selected parts from their article or d whole article, it’s up to u!  [sorry & 1ox in same time] 😉

.

Marina Abramovic‘s L.A. MOCA gala, and the outrage inspired by it, was certainly one of the biggest stories of 2011 in art. If you will recall, back in November, legendary avant-garde dancer Yvonne Rainer denounced the spectacle — which was titled “An Artist’s Life Manifesto,” and involved diners eating around nude female models draped with skeletons and other models serving as human centerpieces —  in an open letterSarah Wookey, a dancer who refused to participate, penned her own open letter explaining why she had opted out: because she saw the event as economic exploitation of hopeful young dancers, who were compensated only minimally for their participation.

.

.

At the end of December, L.A. MOCA released a slickly produced black-and-white video about the gala, which, in addition to making the whole thing look strangely like a luxury perfume commercial, will probably do nothing to disperse this controversy. It begins with shots of the rich and famous attendees (Eli BroadWill FerrellGwen Stefani) on the red carpet, grinning for the paparazzi, as Abramovic’s voice intones that art is the “oxygen of our society.” Then we see guests putting on their white lab coats to eat around the freaky human party decorations, an ominous score giving the decadent imagery an unmistakable “Eyes Wide Shut” vibe. The film ends with Deborah Harry performing “Heart of Glass,” before she and Abramovic cut into a woman-shaped cake. (It leaves out the part where members of the audience chanted “Violence against women!” upon witnessing this spectacle.)

But really, it is Abramovic’s narration, in which she explains her thinking behind “An Artist’s Life Manifesto,” that might throw fresh fuel on the fire. She distances herself from the government art patronage of her native Europe, indicating that she prefers the American way, where “industry” supports art. She points out that the Renaissance was made possible by “Popes, aristocrats, or kings” (um, Marina: patronage by “Popes, aristocrats, or kings” is also government patronage), and then she says that she thinks an artist should be a “servant.” But not just any kind of servant, she goes on to say, but one that who pursues a pure vision who stands above all economic considerations (like paying the participants in your performance?) 

.

.

So, to sum up: people were mad at Abramovic for economically exploiting her performers, and she’s talking about how much she appreciates the wisdom of the free market and/or the virtues of the pre-modern system of rule by kings. At the very least, you would say that this is pretty tone deaf, given the controversy. We’ve taken the liberty of transcribing her whole narration (preserving her charmingly idiosyncratic English, for the most part):

I see the art as oxygen of our society. I come from Europe and we have a completely different system of sponsoring art. Governments give money for culture. The system here is completely different. Which is quite interesting, to look in the past and think about who actually sponsored the culture. If you look in Renaissance time, any of these great artists — it was Popes, aristocrats, or kings who actually support these kinds of artists and make it possible to support these monumental works.

Today, we don’t have kings but we have industry, we have business, we have banks. The kind of people who actually have a substantial amount of money, who can support culture. I see the function of an artist as a servant. I think that art have to be shared, art have to be disturbing, art have to ask questions, art have to predict the future, in some cases, and have many layers of meaning.

When I was asking to do this kind of gala, I was really concerned with what should be my contribution, that I actually don’t make any compromise to my work and do something which is different. I don’t think that I should only provide entertainment. I have to create situation where we are actually not at ease and you come with an experience that you didn’t have before.

I think that today we have so much concern about art as a commodity, with art market, with the times we are living in. I think that the context of the artist is very important to clarify, so I had the need to write this manifesto.

[Referring to Debby Harry] Both of us are performance artists, and we both work with the public. It a way, offering the body for the public, that is the ultimate gesture. [Apparently referring the audience] They are not just looking into the spectacle, they are part of the spectacle, and that’s a big difference.
