– Donuts, Strawberries, hemorrhoids. Aki Sasamoto at the Biennial.

Boobies. Kitties.

Isabella Rossellini is an actress and filmmaker and also the daughter of Ingrid Bergman and Roberto Rossellini. She looks very high class, serious and stiff. And yet, in Green Porno, she costumes herself as various different animals and explain their act of copulation in the most surreal, lo-fi and ingenious way we can imagine. I cannot BELIEVE I just found this. My eyes have been opened.

– Cotter on Abramovic.

– The shitstorm of attention Powhida has been getting. I say kudos to the brotha. I’ve seen his work couple years back and have visited his studio twice and never had the balls to write about it because I couldn’t wrap my head around it. Believe me, his drawings, videos, caricatures go way beyond what is seen and the artist is so full of profound shit you’d never know it was coming.

Design and branding during art fair week. I find it odd that she equates titles of exhibitions and concepts of show with branding, but I guess it means the same thing: whatever makes the work catchy and accessible.
