The Sonic Body - Harry Neve , Thomas Michalak and Anna Chocola

"The Sonic Body is an audio-installation that uses interactive technology to create an orchestra of the human body. Developed as a collaboration between four interdisciplinary artists and a heart surgeon, the installation brings together art and medical-science to reveal the unheard sounds of the body. The installation, created by artists Harry Neve , Thomas Michalak and Anna Chocola , appears on its exterior as a neutral cylindrical pod. Once inside however, the audience is immersed in a contrastingly tactile and multi-sensory space filled with sculptural fabric forms that evoke the shapes and contours of inner body parts. The audiences’ movements and contact with the installation triggers a symphony of sounds to be played that have been recorded from within the body [...]"

Oliver Hangl - "insight out"

"Insight out" was a performance done in vienna where Hangl gave residents of a new building pieces or plays which they then performed within their own homes with open curtains. These performances would then be observed by people within another building across the street using binoculars while listening to a soundtrack, melting and interchanging the role of both the observed and the observer.

So you might have noticed how embarrassingly dyslexic I am. Well this does not stop just with writing, but affecting my working and long term memory, it makes me pretty useless at wanting to have 'interesting'  conversations.. simply cos no-one takes you seriously if you cant remember the name of the artist/photographer/film-maker/author of the piece you are claiming you like so much. And then you try to at least remember what the damn thing is about but the information is just not there. You just know you love them... no use, you are just a douchebag.
Im mentioned this cos one of the pieces I saw today at the Tate seamed to be like what this feels like. It was lines and lines similar to this: a famous artist who's best work was never shown
Anyhow, for this reason is sadly often that I find myself missing out on many exhibitions cos I cant remember I like this artist,  or that I go there and I cant remember what the concept of their work is about, so I kinda miss out on a lot of the joy. 
But in this occasion I was really really waiting for this exhibition, and it was incredible, also to recognise so much of his work and also make sense of it hahah. 
Anyways, sorry if I disappoint you, Im not gonna give you an analysis of the exhibition, Im just gonna tell you that you HAVE to go and see it, cos its gorgeous. I got to see lot of my favourites and also lots new stuff. In fact I am going to go and see it again. 
And I might start a little charity  box: help mara buy a book about Orozco, cos there is at least 4 that I fucking want.

I killed my mother, 2009

So I want to see this:

but I have to admit is not cos I found the trailer so thrilling, but more cos I saw this little extract by accident..

and well to be honest is hard to say if its just the scene which even if  I found it horribly cheese is also at the same time quite sexy, or its because that guy, the taller one is extra hot?? hmm

It does genuinely intrigues me though,  the fact that the director is bloody 20 years old!!! and this film gave him not one but three nominations at the Cannes Festival, what a perfect excuse to watch it  ;)

The Invisible Frame, 2009

I watch the whole thing waiting for something to happen... and the only thing that got me excited for about two seconds was recognising the street where my friends live. Watch this when you have insomnia. It was beautifully shat, there is plenty of birds and nature like sounds and very little of that sloooowwly said poetic monologue.

gilbert garcin

"the driven ambition"

"the fear of ignorance"

"diogenes of lucidity"

"the mill of oblivion"

This guy is brilliant, he was an accountant or banker for most of his life and at the ripe young age of 65 years old decided to become an artist and made a book of these photo-montages. The best part are the titles. allegorical, humorous and accurate. There are so many good ones it's worth checking out his website and seeing them all.

‘confronting the meanings and absurdities of the human condition in stark, dream-like landscapes and situations’.

"The fact was that, in his seventieth year and in his brilliant ascent, Gilbert Garcin was going through all the torments of the young artists while at the same time pursuing his “unsayable dreams of success” with all the tenacity of an ex-businessman and, above all, the iron will of be someone who knows that time is not unlimited."

During my lunch brake I went to the White Cube, this is what I saw.
A collection of sculptures and drawings that felt like looking at a wet dream, confusing, quiet, and very sexy.

jacob whibley


"After he had leaked against a tree I went over, pissed there too, and scuffed my shoe against the earth so he would know I had his system. He was delighted. He barked loud and ran round me excited for a few minutes. He must have felt there had been a major breakthrough in the spread of hound civilization and who knows he may be right."
