FE-VIDEO ARTISTS – VIDEOEMINSTS – QUEEN Vs

I was in Berlin last week, Danielle De Picciotto was in a group show that led me to a gallery behind a graphic shop, in one of the yards behind Starbucks in Mitte…

In Berlin they often show video art on ancient TVs with headphones on top – the squat legacy…

Dana Schechter‘s Ocular Eye was on the loop…

I came back to see The Band of Holy Joy play at the South Place Hotel in London- Johny Brown, the singer, always refreshes me in his sincerity towards performance.  His girlfriend, Inga Tillere has made a heap of cool films – they’re lo-fi dark.  She also showed in the Tate shows I was in last year with Tracey Moberly.

Sturtevant’s retrospective at the Serpentine soars in originality, but some pieces remind me of what my husband, a filmmaker always says about artists playing with film – that it shouldn’t be allowed, because they don’t understand the medium – for example, her howling dogs, it’s supposed to be a dog that runs forever, and if they’d cut the loop slightly earlier, it would have looked like that – however, I’m sure she was aware of this glitch, and it was part of the process, right…

Anat Ben-David performed at the Red Gallery in the summer – I wrote about Chicks on Speed, her band, years ago – she’s always hardcore, and is keeping the 90s vibe alive.  I love that she doesn’t give a monkey’s codpiece about singing in tune…

Laure Prouvost’s work made me really think about the need to finesse work – I’m in the process of finishing a project I’ve been working on for years – it’s great to just bash collage together like she did for the Maxmara prize – oh, for the innocence of times before I worked creatively in the cruelities of commerce…

AND WHERE WOULD ANY OF US GIRLS BE WITHOUT MRS. LOU REED, Laurie Anderson?
