"By the time #debord killed himself he had come to think the spectacle was indestructible. A society in which it had reached its full development, he writes in a commentary on his original ideas he published in 1988, displays five mutually #reinforcingfeatures : incessant #technologicalrenewal ; integration of state and economy; generalised #secrecy ; #unanswerable#lies ; an #eternalpresent .
Taken together, these features removed any possibility of #revolutionary#change ." #johngray#thesoulofthemarionette
A short enquiry into #humanfreedom
I started the sketches of these works now four years ago, I called them Bandar Log, like the monkeys in the Jungle Book. When the #Charliehebdo#shooting happened the whole #artcommunity was in shock and tried to contribute with a piece overcoming the gloomy burden of those days. I made some oil on paper skulls and left them dry for some months for later on only recently taking them back and making some heads, many actually, made of concrete and confettis and what I found in the studio. I needed to see it happen. To go back and shape their faces. I owed them some of the good memories of my childhood, I owed to all of them the statement they left to the world, the lively message they left the world with. Now some years have passed and honestly they are more than missed in nowadays false, hypocrite society.
