Fan Mail: Kristin Cammermeyer

Kristin Cammermeyer’s works are tributes to becoming. They render a sense that completion is an arbitrary concept, that anything that ends has more to do with one’s perspective than its inherent finitude. Her installations are constantly in flux, resulting either from her construction and deconstruction of the spaces they inhabit or from the multimedia videos that become both artifacts of the physical pieces and digital[…..]

In 2013, Kota Ezawa once gave a presentation at the California College of the Arts about a man in Japan. As he explained it, Ezawa saw a man talking on CNN, with the name of “Kota Ezawa” printed in the bumper graphic at the bottom of the screen. This onscreen Ezawa was a scientist, and as Ezawa watched the interview, he became intrigued. The name[…..]

Artist Laurie Anderson opens Heart of a Dog by recounting a rather bizarre dream. Illustrated on the screen through sketchy black-and-white drawings and narrated in Anderson’s calm, comely voice, the artist gives birth to her dog, Lolabelle, the spectral rat terrier who becomes in some ways (though in others not) the star of the film. After being presented with her bundle, Anderson’s dream self feels very[…..]

World of Glass: A Conversation with Nathalie Djurberg and Hans Berg

The work of Nathalie Djurberg and Hans Berg is defined by duality. A partnership between artist and musician, their stop-motion animation videos and haunting audio tracks precariously balance horror and humour, immersing child-like puppets in a world where perversion, violence, aggression, and power dominate. In their latest exhibition in London, the artists explore the medium of glass and its materiality – fragility becomes threatening and[…..]
