:TV Garden Then & Now

Nam June Paik, TV Garden, 1974 (2000 version). Video installation with color television sets and live plants.

TV Garden, one of his seminal installations, illustrates Paik’s profound grasp of technology’s capacity for composition and the new aesthetic discourse that he helped to create. To enter the piece is to experience an uncanny fusion of the natural and the scientific, as hidden amid an undergrowth of live plants are video monitors of various sizes. All are playing the artist’s 1973 collaboration with John J. Godfrey, Global Groove, which montages performers from around the world into a gyrating visual mix, and the videotape’s sound track serves as musical and spoken counterpoint to the monitors’ flickers of light. TV Garden set a new standard for immersive, site-specific video installations.

Description /

<TV Garden>(1974/2008) is one of the most important works of Nam Jun Paik, creating life beats from primordial force of tropical forest in tune with rhythm of video fantasy. The <Global Groove> on TV monitors shows the power of music and dance with imaginative video image. Firstly conceived in his private exhibition of Bonino Gallery in New York in 1974, it made its appearance as a title of <TV Ocean> due to the lack of money to buy plants at that time. Later, its variations were made according to the environment of exhibition including Aberson Gallery in New York, Contemporary Museum in Chicago, Pompidou Center in Paris, Whitney Museum in New York, Metro Hall in Tokyo, Litan Museum etc.

<TV Garden> in NJP Art Center is surrounded by small corridors to look around with a short-ranged view, and it also has a characteristic to make the audience take an outlook of the entire forest from the upper side. Installed as part of Now Jump, the opening festival of NJP Art Center, it was built up by Young Cheol Lee, the artistic director of NJP Art Center and Sang Su Ahn, landscape architect, with the advice of Keigo Yamamoto, Japanese video artist, during a week starting from the 2nd of October in 2008.

Definition of SOLIPSISM

: a theory holding that the self can know nothing but its own modifications and that the self is the only existent thing; also : extreme egocentrism
.

Chuck Wendig‘s blog:
“Nobody sees themselves as a villain. We’re all solipsistic. We’re all the heroes of our own tales. Even villains.”

:I think this video is mind blowing. as today is HOLI huge holiday in India celebrated with a lot of colors also as d woman’s day *8th of March) also colorful, spectral ceremony that makes them feel as one with mans, this video points at being one with d nature. one organic, explosive pure connection with d inner structure, with d atoms that we build together.. contemporary sustainability , what a great art is this!. btw I think I haven’t post for a while video here and this is great opportunity for u to enjoy this master piece directed by by Andrew Thomas Huang.

SOLIPSIST is a three part psychedelic fantasy short film about otherworldly beings whose minds and bodies converge into one entity. Filled with elaborate costumes, stunning visual effects, and underwater puppets, the film is a non-narrative purely visual/audio experience designed to transport viewers through a hypnotic, dream-like experience. It consists of three parts, each featuring visually fantastic characters and creatures that converge with each other in surreal ways. The film concludes by featuring all three segments combine into a colorful, psychedelic finale.

are we all colorful dust, molecules of feelings, u decide..

.

:u think is amazing? .. after this video I think that finally there is result that shows to Us that there will be good future in d contemporary art. this signature is just d way in which I hope that d arts will evolve. the philosophy, idea, level of wisdom, energy, interaction, theatrical challenge, all elements that are involved. if I just start to analyze them one by one I’ll already make some structure of d future of arts with this powerful expression. let’s get PSYchedelic. ..u can leave ur comments below or on :d white b[l]og ::: #facebook page

!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.
