Skateboarders vs Minimalism, 2016

MCA Sydney, visited 08/09/2019

An unanticipated and cool way to engage with art objects – to skate all over them. There is something about different mode of interaction with art that in itself is art-generative… I did not spend much time watching the videos (most likely I would have skated on the works for quite a while if I only knew how to ride a board), but so much more appreciating the concept itself… And yet, I do think that I appreciate it more, knowing that the concept was actually realised…

But come on… to ride a Duchampian readymade… to ‘return functionality’ to the object, yet in a form of most dysfunctional function – to pose with the object in the art gallery… I cannot help but like the irony of that… and yet again I find it inspiring to see how unexpected bodily engagement with an artwork can generate something new… Coolio!

Very minimalistic text-only videos that can keep you watching for quite a while.

Texts in paintings. Appropriated photos. Conceptual so it hurts.

I can only second that.
And then break against that intention as soon as I subscribe to it – just like Huebler himself. But, who knows, maybe it still stops us from adding at least some of the objects that would have been made otherwise.

#014 Pawel Kruk

Tadeusz Kantor (b. 1915, Poland – d. 1990, Poland)
‘Panoramic Sea Happening’, 1967 in Poland

RE-ENACTED BY PAWEL KRUK ON BRIGHTON BEACH IN 2017

Exhibition poster, 2018

It’s hard to find a proper picture for it.
But there is something exciting about artist being formally accused and painfully penalised for allegedly erasing one of the lines in Sol LeWitts wall drawings. Just to issue a statement long time later that nothing of the kind has ever happened.

Re-enactment of Panoramic Sea Happening with director of waves is also pretty cool.
