Looking for kindred spirits.
deleting old harmful words out of your vocabulary can be tough but take the opportunity to find new, better words to convey your feelings for the benefit of everyone
Easily the best part of the VMAs.
Frank Kunert - l’absurde architecture
Kate MccGwire (previously) born 1964 is an English sculptor who specializes in the medium of feathers. Her work experiments with the binary notions of beauty and disgust, malice and tranquillity, and the familiar yet otherworldly. Her use of pigeon feathers takes a waste product of the ‘rats with wings’ and elevates them to the status of art. By re-framing the object, placing it out of context, it generates a kind of ‘field of attraction’ around it, the viewer is left both seduced and alienated, relishing the spectacle but at the same time aware of something disquieting, something ‘other’.
Writing you tar poems with a slick tongue
while you wolf down (murky eyes, shallow breathing)
promises of annihilation whispered so low
that your whole body leans in (to hear, I’m sure,)
every little thing you know about physics,
I have yet to learn through sheer osmosis,
but every stretch of you keeps trying.
The title of the work is identical to a series of photographs by Huseyin shot in Odessa, showing curtains blowing in the wind. These images inspired an installation of hardened lace curtains, frozen in time and space. The work refers to the gesture of opening the windows to set free the soul of the deceased, as well as the idea of a spirit present in a room, mysteriously lifting the curtains to reveal its presence.
