Artūras Raila (b. 1962, Lithuania)
It’s not the girl’s fault, 1998

A video from moderation (including also a rather controversial piece in one female student’s folio) in Vilnius Academy of Fine Arts. It is quite amazing to see the ‘kitchen’ and hear what aspects – from aesthetical and art theoretical to social, ideological, institutional and psychological – that are brought into the process and how they are negotiated in this very male-gendered faculty.

I wonder if I would be allowed to re-stage the piece in RMIT 🙂

I appreciate how he lets others to fill his piece with content.
And hey, to have it broadcasted on the national tv live… Super cool!

Nice hat, too.

I have loved the stars too fondly to be fearful of the night, 2019

Dance Massive, Substation, visited 15/03/2019

Very minimalistic dance against the backdrop of sounds and projections generated in real time on intercepted radio and cosmic signals.

Just the kind of unexpected combo of elements in just the kind of aesthetics that I’m trying to engage with myself.

Not sure about the privacy aspect, but other than that it is close to what I do on regular basis without thinking ‘art’… maybe I should…

For the 100th post I am breaching my rule of only one entry per artist. But art does not get much better than this piece of Baldessari… O.M.G.
