I think, a pyramid could be…

a geographical symbol;
an energy collector;
for some kind of transformation and connection;
a spacecraft…

Our

The Cultural Collage

Welcome to Collage on Saturdays; a round-up of the week’s work and interesting bits we’ve seen and found.

On Tuesday Collage enjoyed a visit to Chelsea School of Art for its Postgraduate Show. We started off at a gentle pace but after 3 hours we realised we’d only seen a quarter of the work on offer and so had to fly through the rest. There was much good work and some rather awful stuff (one installation gave my companion a migraine; a kind visitor gave her some headache tablets with the words “Modern art- it can be so painful”). But some work was truly wonderful.

 Kirsty Skears’ beautiful short films, which cut rapidly and skim through a myriad of candy-coloured imagery, were shown in specially decorated sugar pink rooms, with a Disney princess bean bag to perch upon. Lolly pop in hand we watched as the industries which capitalise on…

Aurélie Pétrel (*1980)

L’œuvre d’Aurélie Pétrel réside dans une interrelation entre l’image, le support et l’espace, avec laquelle non seulement elle questionne la place et le statut de chacun, mais encore multiplie les possibles par l’introduction de dispositifs tels que Michel Foucault les a définis : « des stratégies de rapports de force supportant des types de savoir, et supportés par eux ». Chambre à Tokyo présente le hors-champ de l’image architecturée, construite par plans vers l’espace réel. C’est à distance de tout référent qu’est caractérisé ici comment le corps de l’humain est livré au monde construit par l’homme. (extraits de Du dispositif et du figural, Sylvie Lagnier, 2010)

The Practice of Everyday Life Quotes By Michel de Certeau

“To walk is to lack a place. It is the indefinite process of being absent and in search of a proper. The moving about that the city mutliplies and concentrates makes the city itself an immense social experience of lacking a place — an experience that is, to be sure, broken up into countless tiny deportations (displacements and walks), compensated for by the relationships and intersections of these exoduses that intertwine and create an urban fabric, and placed under the sign of what ought to be, ultimately, the place but is only a name, the City…a universe of rented spaces haunted by a nowhere or by dreamed-of places.”

告诉他们,我乘白鹤去了(作者:苏童)

儿女们没有见到过那只白鹤,他们的年纪都不小了,可是没有谁见到过白鹤。老人说每天黄昏那只白鹤会到水塘边饮水,长长的嘴巴浸在水中,松软的羽毛看上去比新轧的棉花更白更干净,它就站在离核桃树三步远的地方饮水,有时候青蛙从水草丛中跳到岸上,它就扑开翅膀飞走了,有时候牛在地里哞哞地叫起来,它就扑开翅膀飞走了。春天以来老人一直在向儿女们叙述仙鹤饮水的情景,但儿女们说他们就在水塘边灌溉耕地,他们从来没见过什么白鹤。 Continue reading
