Is that the one where Tilda Swinton holds up your kids' artwork on your fridge for 24 straight hours?

Sometimes my fridge, sometimes somebody else's fridge. That's part of the appeal. You never know which fridge it will be, just that there will be cameras to document it. It's very conceptual, about the irregular societal constructs of memory.

BTW, this thread is a SH x foo collab. Might be a collector's item one day, especially if squirreled.

Trick statement. They had each other in symbiotic experience.

I was skeptical at first. With so many fakes floating around I didn't want to get burned. I'm glad I went to a certified online dealer in Marrakesh.

Or Marina and the floor of the Guggenheim.

Thanks for posting about that, as I'd never heard of it before.

I think that some of this blurb about post-modern performance art, concerning the original performance of "Seedbed" by Vito Acconci (the piece subsequently performed by Marina Abramovic), could be relevant to Dopey's thread about modernist art:
Quote:
"In this legendary sculpture/performance Acconci lay beneath a ramp built in the Sonnabend Gallery. Over the course of three weeks, he masturbated eight hours a day while murmuring things like, "You're pushing your c*nt down on my mouth" or "You're ramming your co*k down into my a*s." Not only does the architectural intervention presage much of his subsequent work, but all of Acconci's fixations converge in this, the spiritual sphincter of his art. In Seedbed, Acconci is the producer and the receiver of the work's pleasure. He is simultaneously public and private, making marks yet leaving little behind, and demonstrating ultra-awareness of his viewer while being in a semi-trance state."

I think that there's something highly appropriate about the juxtaposition of masturbation and modern, performance art...

I was about to post a picture of the corner in my new music studio but then got to thinking about my guitar and how it might not be honest as it's an Epiphone Les Paul not a Gibson Les Paul.

Actually, thank you. I knew Abramovic repeated what Acconci had done before. I didn't realize it was a reprise, rather than simply unoriginal. That makes sense.
