Din nou despre DIICALOSI

|


Dupa ce unii cetaţeni au ameninţat cu proteste in faţa instituţiei DIICALOASE (in urma ameninţarilor catre familia Macesanu spre a preda buletinul fetei si ei sa inchida cazul ), DIICALOSII au dat-o subtil (sau in tentativa de subtilitate) la intors. Dupa ce Cumpanasu a publicat citaţia si lumea s-a revoltat a venit un comunicat cum ca nu asta au dorit, ca e o formulare standard si aste idioţenii din astea, de parca acolo sunt angajaţi retardaţi mintal. De fapt cei care au orchestrat aceasta manevra au vrut sa vada daca familia poate fi influenţata prin ameninţari sa predea buletinul iar ei sa inchida cazul. Se pare ca bolovanul a luat-o la vale periculos. Neincrederea cetaţenilor in sistem ii costa miliarde. Desigur, nu IDICOŢII au imaginat aceasta inginerie de testare a starii familiei, dar si ei sunt din acea zona. Sa ii ia pe toţi dracu’, cu dictatura lor militara cu tot!





Directia de Investigare a Infractiunilor de Criminalitate Organizata si Terorism

Dupa ce si-au batut joc de familiile indurerate, trimitandu-le pe piste false, recent 3icot le-a si transmis o amenintare cu incatusarea daca nu predau buletinul fetei ... Ei bine, daca-i declara si teroristi, dupa modelul tipic, ma gandesc c-ar putea sa-i condamne cu totul si sa inchida odata acest caz…

10 august: de ce vrei sa ma omori?

In ultima luna am lucrat la aceasta piesa muzicala, dar se pare ca avem o alta tragedie. Ma rog ca Alexandra sa fie in viata! Ma rog si pentru Ilie Gazea si pentru cei ce au fost maltratati de cei puternici de-a lungul timpului!

The Bale's pain

|




This painting is a part of “Modern Heroes” series that I exposed several times now. Gareth Bale is a football player that now has some difficulties at his current club Real Madrid. When I painted him, several years ago, he was in his prime. He was supposed to become the best player in the world, but he eventually failed. So this painting was a kind of premonition of his decay. There was this image when he kicked the ball that he looked like crucified Jesus. So, that was the spirit of this series of mixing up ages, ideas, mentalities, facts and people that resemble each other or have common features. So here he was “Jesus Bale”. That was the first name for this work. However, later people were kind of confused of it, especially the religious ones. So I eventually decided to take the cross off and not offend their religious feelings. But the thorns crown is still there.



The background text is extracted from my book “The Basics of Theoretical Art”  and it goes like this:

“Once with avalanching industrialization of both the journalistic item from traditional art and the mode item from modern art, the only one who has kept its traditional elitism is the conceptual item. As the mode item, the conceptual one is also not new in art history. It can be found in the traditional art, even if somewhat more diluted and hided. The art evolution from the darkness of history until today progressively revealed the concept and the scientific data involved among the artistic forms. That is because the civilization is evolving towards a scientific and pragmatic ideology, rejecting more and more the religious one that represents a certain stage in its history. Obviously, the two spiritual phenomena can not be radically differentiated: the religion and the science have common elements but the difference between them is the same as that between the archaic and Formula 1 cars.

That is why, today, the culture is more theoretical (or pragmatic - see the phenomenon of advertising) even when it makes the apology for Edenic childhood and returning to simple happiness of the primitive spirit. For example, the trends like romanticism, neoclassicism and realism have brought great technical and technological innovations of the image. But the main difference between them is the very journalistic item, the chosen story. The neoclassicism returned to mythology or gave mythological aura to the present. The romanticism oscillated between heroic and fatalistic -entropic themes. The realism was pleased to simply show the banal beauty of the world that previous art was not interesting in. In addition to journalist item that is the decisive factor in shaping these trends, here can be foreseen the very conceptual item. Each one of these currents has its own ideology. The neoclassicism is close to classical and Christian philosophy. The romanticism relates to the psychologist side of the ancient sophists and, obviously, it is announcing or even it is contemporary with Nietzsche (as the composer Richard Wagner for instance). The realism relates with the political side of the ancient sophists, with J.J. Rousseau and K. Marx. The conceptualist core found in these art currents will be even more visible later, once with their modernizing, when the romanticism will turn into surrealism (via ‘metaphysical painting’) and the realism will turn (among others) into socialist realism in communist countries or consumerism in capitalist ones.”

"Diversionistii": primul meu documentar

|


"Diversionistii" este proiectul la care am lucrat in ultimele luni. Cu mai putina energie si rezistenta la frustrare fata de proiectul "Corruption Story" la care am lucrat in 2012 si 2014. Asta cred ca e punctul de cotitura pe care il voi adopta de acum incolo. Am o multime de teorii, le trebuie imagine si explicitare pe intelesul tuturor.






A murit un inger

|




Nu cred ca i-ar fi placut sa fie asociata cu aceasta imagine, pentru ca nu-i placea societatea traditionala. Era o feminista. Dar pentru mine asta a fost Alina Popa. Un inger. Sau o sfanta. S-a stins de curand. La o varsta comparabila cu cea la care au murit marii ingeri din istoria artei, precum Rafael, Van Gogh sau, mai aproape de spiritul ei, Jean Michel Basquiat. Am indragit-o din primul moment de cand am interactionat, in timpul protestelor din 2012, la care a participat activ impreuna cu prietenul sau, Florin Flueras.  Amandoi mi s-au parut printre cei mai frumosi oameni din peisajul artistic romanesc cu care m-am intersectat. I-am intalnit mai devreme de atunci si ne stiam de pe la evenimentele organizate in incinta sediului Centului National al Dansului, insa fara sa fi interactionat mai de aproape.


A fost aproape de o colaborare in proiectul lor „Black Hyperbox” , fiind prezent la cateva sesiuni organizate in sediul nou al CND. Insa abordarea mea a fenomenelor oneroide si spirituale in general a fost mereu din perspectiva pshodinamica (psihanalitica) , directie de care ei nu erau foarte interesati. Nu pot sa cred ca a murit. Nu pot sa cred ca asemenea om poate sa moara.

Am zis sa nu mai astept pana in decembrie cand vor fi chiar 30 de ani pentru ca tot aia e. Adica asa cum am sarbatorit 100 years chalenge, puteam sarbatori si 1000 de ani chalenge sau 10 000 de ani chalenge ca la noi oricum nu se va schimba nimic. #30yearchallenge





Nostalgii cu Michael Jackson si Galeria Noua

|




In acest moment pana pe 14 Februarie este deschisa in Paris, „Michael Jackson, On the Wall” probabil cea mai ampla expozitie cu tema Michael Jackson. Expozitia a fost deschisa si in Londra pe vara.

Din pacate sunt cam multe kitsch-uri neasumate in ea, si asta o face dubioasa. Unele dintre ele sunt tablouri comandate de insusi Michael, sau facute pentru el. Arta contemporana i-a ramas in mare parte straina, in ciuda faptului ca el insusi a inovat imaginea in miscare, respectiv video-clipul muzical specific MTV.

Dar in expozitie exista direct sau indirect cele mai valoroase lucrari de arta cu tema Michael. Mai intai direct, prin portretul facut de Andy Warhol



si Keith Haring,


si apoi, indirect printr-o fotografie a sculpturii cu Michael si cimpanzeul Bubbles facuta de al doilea cel mai bogat artist din lume, Jeff Koons.



Probabil ca, rusinandu-se de aspectul ei kitschy (!!!) , au preferat o astfel de fotografie in care o parte din ea e discret cenzurata. Ar fi trebuit expusa direct sculptura, dar probabil ca pretul inchirierii ei e exorbitant.

In expozitie este prezenta , la min -7.40 este prezenta si video-instalatia „King (A Portrait of Michael Jackson)” din seria „Inner + Outer Space” , facuta de Candice Breitz cu fani cantand si dansand. (Madonna si John Lennon sunt de asemenea portretizati prin fani astfel.)


Interesant e ca ea a fost expusa si in Romania in decembrie 2005 la defuncta „Galeria Noua”  . Mi-am adus instant aminte de ea, desi au trecut 13 ani de atunci. Multe lucruri bune s-au intamplat la acea galerie…
