Found Objects 11/06/12Posted: June 11, 2012
Another week on the news-and-views merry-go-round:
- Frieze claims the art world has swallowed up the art itself and Dieter Roelstraete bemoans the amount of reference-heavy work that has come about as a result.
- In the Guardian #1: Rachel Cooke visits Jenny Saville to conduct a wide ranging interview about the painter’s life and work.
- In the Guardian #2: After its untimely end in April, Jeremy Millar teases out the humour in the career of Fishcli and Weiss. Rat and Bear clip is hilarious (thanks @RussellHillArt).
- Mystical anarchism is the theme of a Simon Critchley piece in Adbusters. Recommended reading for all those practicing designer resistance (thanks @rpeckham).
- A record breaking piece of prehistoric art has been found in a French cave, and so the oldest graphic mark of all time is now an, erm, vulva (on Hyperallergic).
- From the deep past to the near future, Derek Brahney has been making Rothko paintings on his iPhone (also on Hyperallergic).
- Der Spiegel writes up the career of artnet founder Hans Neuendorf with some dramatic flourishes that make being a multi millionaire seem reasonably exciting.
- After the End gets in a last-minute review of the Hans-Peter Feldman show at Serpentine. The German artist has a light touch which delights.
- Speaking of light touches, there can be few mechanisms as airy as this three dimensional representation of weather data on Prosthetic Knowledge. Includes footage.
- Meanwhile from the land of the cute, photo of a mass transit vehicle for toddlers thanks to the Tokyo Times.
