“Every time you have to come up with a new body of work for a new show, you’re aware that people are just ready to rip you apart, they’re just waiting for you to fall or make the slightest trip up.” – Cindy Sherman
Hey look! I took some photos of the “colonial revival home” of Warren B. Sanders, @whitneymuseum Vice Chair and owner of defense manufacturer @safarilandgroup, and filled them with a tasteful amount of teargas. Art by #damienhirst#cindysherman and #johnbaldessari#tearyeyed
UNTITLED FILM STILL #57
signed on a label affixed to the back of the frame
gelatin silver print
69.2 by 102.2 cm. 27 1/4 by 40 1/4 in.
Executed in 1980, this work is number 2 from an edition of 3.
Cindy Sherman’s photography is pioneering work. She captures the masquerades of femininity and the social construction of what it means to be as a woman throughout time. Here, Sherman, who models in much of her work, captures a stereotypical film noir still, yet through the parameters of the photograph challenges and inverts it.
Cindy Sherman s work is amazing. Strong power and totally rock it. The evocative images not only photos about portraits anymore it contains various ideas of history, pop culture and feminism. The reflections of the whole exhibition also force me to think about Metoo and “ PINK PUSSY CAT“ when I was in New York.
HOW TO MAKE A MOVIE IN NEW YORK- PART 2: DO NOT USE ACTORS
Everybody knows: We are living under TOTALITARIAN REALITY TV CAPITALISM and the profession of acting is becoming obsolete as we speak. Actors and actresses worldwide are facing massive un-employment, like typewriter repair men (M/F) , secretaries (M/f) or punk rock musicians (M/F). These people, sympathetic as they all are are simply not needed anymore. Its’ sad, but true. Why? HYPER REALITY is MUCH MORE INTERESTING. It is simply MUCH more fun to watch iPhone videos of overfed clumsy white (they are always white!) children stumble into dirty orangutan cages at the ZOO than watching “historical” “dramas” about what exactly? Come on! History is now! It’s delirious. You love it! Forwards ever, backwards never! The world is rotting away. We live, right now, all of us, in a completely corrupt corporate world run by mafioso and Silicon Valley app developers and yes, my friend, I detest t it too and I also do not want to meet cyber people in cyberspace but where is my prize, where is my award? Hallelujah. What a time to live in. Science fiction is becoming science fact. Your script is writing itself. (Cont.—>)
