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)!

Chelsea wanders

Posted in art, chelsea, video art, wandering by cheapandplastique on February 20, 2015

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.

Sometimes one has photo envy. This is one of those times.
I really love this work by South African photographer Kent Andreasen.
Check out his website here or instagram here.

Darren Almond

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.
