PS1 MoMA showing Nakadate film/photography work

click on this link for exhibition info:

Laurel Nakadate is known for her works in video, photography, and feature-length film. This is Nakadate's first large-scale museum exhibition and will feature works made over the last ten years in all three media, including her early video works, in which she was invited into the homes of anonymous people to dance and pose in their kitchens, bedrooms, and living rooms.

365 Days: A Catalogue of Tears documents a year-long performance in which the artist
photographed herself weeping each day. In January 2010 issue of Artforum Jeffrey Kastner
wrote, "Dangerously smart, dangerously bold (and frequently just plain dangerous), Nakadate has built an indelible body of work around her provocative investigations of psychosexual identity and female power. She seems like the bastard child of that underground film genius Jane Public...but only God knows that for sure. For my own sake alone, I stand in awe"

After working on my new film's Press Kit design & layout, I decided to take a walk to get myself a nice hot latte.

SZE exhibition @ Yossi gallery & JEFF KOONS

THIS WRITER (i.e. me) went/drove to see the exhibition of one of my favorite photographers working today in contemporary stills. "CITIES" exhibition is up at Milo. A nice collection, but for those who have any interest in his work (Sze Tsung Leong) must get his published book. His color photo studies are complete overlooks of an old and new CHINA colliding by contruction and deconstruction, in a photographed mud and cement jungle.


p.s. BTW, the scrap that you see on this blog was my "scribbled notes" written on a found napkin ---galleries that I had planned to go to earlier this week. Today, Saturday, I bumped into Jeff Koons outside of the Gagosian on 24th while loading his kid into the car. My car is nicer than his. God Bless Me. Glad that I went on a Saturday instead of a Thursday. I didn't give him my autograph. He didn't give me his. Welcome to New Yawk City .

Click PLAY to see JANEYS cell-fone clips

Awesome to see moving-picture living "portraits" of folks not living anymore.
Spirits captured forever in one enormous room setting.

If Warhol merits any credibility regarding contributions to art, it is with this.

MOVING PICTURES exhibition aka Screentests @ MoMA

Amazing exhibition. So many souls captured forever via the power of 16mm film (Bolex camera FILM ART @ 16 frames per second)

--- More "personal" feelings posted by JANE later.

"Me" aka "he" aka "JANE" is too busy now to unload.
Need more time to process my experience. Duh.

Cut me some slack.

HIGH CLASS Dinner 4 ME looks like this...

...until one of my blog fans TAKES ME OUT TO EAT !!!!! (c'mon already STOP BEING CHEAP!)

Recording Session for "JANE" narration

Images from the recording session for the character of JANE (i.e. ME). French dialogue. Girlstories film trilogy hostess. About 5 hours of major hard work.
BUT IT ALL WORKED ! NOW comes the "cleaning up" of the hours of raw sound sessions. Wish me luck. I am drained.


p.s. I have become a master at the art of multi-tasking my life.
