As with many, I sometimes find The Art to be indistinguishable from fashion, design, or decorative art, which is completely fine. However, the trend towards their sugary, whimsical ilk sometimes gives me one too many (hot)flashbacks of semi-reluctant jaunts around Anthropologie and its twee brethren.
When I first saw a feature praising Juan Fontanive, I spotted [...]


Without having brought out an album he already entered our open-hearted ears and sensitive souls by his beautiful voice and technically refined tracks like Lessons and The Wheel. First secretely published on Vimeo and now on musicexpress the video of his latest track Artifice is to be enjoyed.
Good to see also, that the London native [...]


Astonishing yoga asanas paired with cosmic aesthetics and high couture. For the video series ‘More than a Model’ by i-D Magazine, the model Lily McZenamy shows off her skills of stretching and flexing, from the upside-down Urdhva Dhanurasana to the sideways Utthita Parsvakonasana. The video is produced by Ill-Studio, multidisciplinary platform for art-direction, graphic design [...]


Peter Pan (or for that matter, Marina Abravomic) is not the only one getting the Bob Wilson treatment.  Working with Dissident Industries Inc, theater’s hallowed maverick, Robert Wilson has constructed video portraits–or caricatures?–of an odd population, including stars such as Isabelle Huppert and Brad Pitt to a…horned frog and Boris the porcupine (above).  Though the stylistic [...]


Here’s the first video for Heatsick’s latest release Re-Engineering. The track ‘Mimosa’ in combination with Hanne Lippard’s tropical visuals is truly a weekend starter, and a pleasant contrasting change to the onset of winter..


The ubiquity of digital art, variously manifested as prismatic gifs, Google Map collages, interactive apps/music videos, and photomanipulations, has proven itself beyond fact beyond fad as an expressive medium for both ends–grassroots and elite–of the creative world.  It’s not surprising then that a contemporary survey, long in coming, has finally emerged.  Impishly named, The Wrong, organized by [...]


If you feel a shame-tinge when sneaking a selfie in the H&M changing room, here’s some validation.  Moving Image Art Fair London is holding a National #Selfie Portrait Gallery, featuring works by 19 new artists from Europe and the States.  As they are all video works, they are a bit more complicated than the average Instagram [...]


Pringle of Scotland – Animation by David Shrigley from NeutralZurich on Vimeo.
Everyone loves David Shrigley drawings.  At least a lot of people do.  I really like this one (which by complete coincidence can be bought in various forms through mono.konsum).  If you like David Shrigely drawings, you’ll really really like David Shrigley animations; even [...]


The Festival Rencontres Internationales opens next Tuesday at Haus der Kulturen der Welt in Berlin (description from the HKW website):
The distinction between documentary and fictional approaches is increasingly blurring. Our viewing habits are outdated, new challenges demand new approaches. The Festival Rencontres Internationales aims to meet those demands: an international selection of 150 hitherto unreleased [...]


Today’s a nice day for everyone waiting for the release of Slow Summits, the latest record by Glasgow residents The Pastels. Even though it was a long time in the coming (first full-length album in 16 years!), it was worth waiting, especially for tracks like ‘Summer Rain’ and ‘Check My Heart’. A triumphant return!

The Pastels [...]
