value and alchemy in contemporary art

value and alchemy in contemporary art

The topics set forth during these kinds of meditative acts allow for a gentle interplay between a free flow of thought and teacherly instruction, the affectionate chastising of others’ work and the occasional bite of lovers: “You can stop talking now.” Interludes of silence are comfortable moments of concentration, the hands in motion while we […]

trying to find connections, this is another possible idea to work out for Also Space, in conjunction with the upcoming launch of WEAR journal number two. first performed at Emporium in Milano, October 2009. instructions__ The driver/salesman should pre-record one message before beginning the route. The recording call should be simple and concise, in both Chinese and Italian, […]

 

context question mark

context question mark

It’s rather ironic in this also-context, what could be seen as yet-another-cultural-exchange-endeavour, though i’d like not to see it motivated as such, but because of certain divides […]

Hello, everyone… I’m sorry for not testing this theme properly before installing, but chose this image-focused blog because I imagined, through language differences and all, that the visual emphasis was probably most likely… Looks like the posts work best when you post an image, which I understand is not always […]
