Watched Béla Tarr’s “The Turin Horse” last night. If you are a fan of beautifully shot, incredibly slow moving, bw foreign films, dealing with end times scenarios, then add it to your Netflix queue (available here)!

I just learned about a death in the family as I started my Chelsea art tour on Wednesday. And then I saw this video, “Cowfish”, 2011, by João Maria Gusmão + Pedro Paiva, which was part of the Beautiful Monsters show at Gladstone Gallery. I haven’t been able to stop thinking about this sad, big eyed, dying fish all week. I hope he escaped his fate but, as happens to all of us, I am pretty sure he did not.

Just saw that Darren Almond is having a show in Berlin at Galerie Max Hetzler.
I wish I could hop on a plane right now to go see it.
I saw Almond’s Hemispheres and Continents show at Matthew Marks Gallery in 2013 and completely fell in love with his work.

Luckily Galerie Max Hetzler’s website has many images from the show on their website for fans of Almond’s fans to peruse.
These videos are entertaining me on this icy/snowy/smoky/grey day in Greenpoint.
