New Show

New Trends for Houseplants at Seventh Gallery, Open from 15th - 31st of May. 

Reading List, May 2014

I’ve been meaning to do this for a while, regularly post a list of articles I’ve read that I thought have been particularly interesting in some way. Past efforts have shown however, that I’m terrible at keeping this blog up to date so I’ll see how I go. 

Josh Bornstein, The Politics of Class Warfare, from Sydney to Washington the Gulf is Deepening, The Guardian. When Bornstein was made a partner at his law firm, he began to notice some changes. Some where simply conveniently warm and fuzzy, such as a personalised relationship with his bank account manager, others didn’t sit quite so well, such as his accountants suggestion that paying tax for a person in his position was a “life choice”. 

Ed Butler, Manly men VS wimps, whats with the macho language in Australian politics? The Guardian. So the adults are back in charge in federal politics. We have a man of steel as our prime minister. This article really gets into the paternalistic, macho language of so much commentary on politics right now, it’s almost as if someone has decided we need brohab or something. 

Naomi Klein, How Science is telling us all to Revolt, The New Statesman. Scientists are generally observers and not the instigators of political uprisings, but as the modelling becomes more dire and warnings go ignored, the scientists are conflicted. Efforts to have their work taken seriously by framing their findings within a neoliberal system have not conveyed the urgency of the situation. Many scientists are losing faith in the political system’s ability to act on climate change, and they are now looking at ways of disrupting their own models. Revolution! or as they call it, “friction”. 

Mark Seal, Seduced and Abandoned - Wendy Deng and Rupert Murdoch, Vanity Fair. Since I was a kid I’ve always thought I was a driven person, but holy shit. Wendy Deng. This article is amazing, it will make your lunch break, Deng is fascinating. The article details her drive, her pivotal role in expanding Murdoch’s reach into China, but also has excerpts of her writing where she diarises her crushes like a teenager - The Prime Minister of Great Britain, the head of Google! Hilarious!

Accepted proposal for a Pixar / Wes Anderson collaboration involving a rag-tag group of orphaned / misfit fruits who go on quest to find their families, are bullied out of Hole Foods by a group of Croaka Cola products (for copyright reasons) led by a skull, but realize along the way that they’ve become a family, go on a wild tricycle ride through the streets of the Big Apple, and end up being used by Urs Fischer at his MOMA retrospective, while the skull ends up in a trash bin, and is used by Damien Hirst as a follow up to “For The Love Of God”, this time however the skull is covered in shit instead of diamonds, 2013

An art project by Paolo Woods, Photos of Haitians wearing donated inappropriate American T-Shirts.

"A t-shirt produced for Wal-Mart in the sweatshops of Port au Prince will be sported by a Texan and then returned to the sender, who, at last, will be able to wear it. This back and forth gives us a peek into the workings of the of the textile industry.”

 

Pepe, Paolo Woods

Listen to This (Phasing Out)

Collaboration by Hannah Smith, Michael John Joseph, Kristy Milliken, Michaela Züge-Bruton

Listen to this (phasing out) seeks uncertainty. Errors of action, gesture and speech are common interferences between listening and speaking subjects, creating passages where meaning might reside and take repose. For Freud these contingent events are linked to our unconscious desires. In this exhibition the artists Hannah Smith, Michael John Joseph, Kristy Milliken and Michaela Züge-Bruton imagine processes that collude and conspire with misunderstandings. Forging twisted connections between making sense and uttering nonsense. Each artist presents a new video work that explores the psychological aspects of correspondence, as a mediated action, full of misapprehension, asynchronicity and frivolity.
