Each of the five images in this exhibition is far more conceptually complex than a cursory glance suggests. Text entries in pencil, like a field-scientist’s notes, appear here and there around the beautifully drawn animals. In this rendering of an indochinese tiger, silhouettes of historical figures and politicians emerge from the black stripes of the…

Fernando Pessoa

A Shrug of the Shoulders We generally give to our ideas about the unknown the color of our notions about what we do know: If we call death a sleep it’s because it has the appearance of sleep; if we call death a new life, it’s because it seems different from life. We build our…

Donald Lipski

Book Works 1982-1997 Installation view Lipski is a master manipulator of the found object, salvaging and ingeniously re-working them. With boundless wit and humor he concocts absurd juxtapositions and mixed messages that capture the spirit of both surrealism and Dada. Lipski believes that art can be made with anything, and he proves it. Behind the…

Tristan Tzara

Philosophy is the question: from which side shall we look at life, God, the idea, or other phenomena. Everything one looks at is false. I do not consider the relative result more important than the choice between cake and cherries after dinner. The system of quickly looking at the other side of a thing in…

MEMO: do I get it that the screen-saver triggers the photoelectric cells mounted on the monitor, sending electric signals to the pencil-sharpeners which whirr for a couple of seconds every time one of the wandering discs of light passes under the photoelectric cell? This is an ingenious labor-saving device. We will rush it to market…

David LaChapelle

“David LaChapelle is a photographer who tends to create his own visionary world, rather than reproduce what’s visible in the world. …Performance obliterates banality, just like Drew Barrymore’s breasts can become grapefruit halves with a cherry; we hear the distant echoes of Lewis Carroll; eat me, drink me, big becomes small; the Tour Eiffel becomes…
