BERLINO PRIMO STRATO: FROM THE SAFRAN HOUSE


Per chi si "spiaggerà" a Berlino nei prossimi giorni.
Per chi cerca nuovi challenge eccovi serviti.

Bart Van Dijck e Lieven Segers, due giovani artisti di Anversa, eclettici e inverosimilmente dinamici, stanno catalizzando la scena artistica berlinese con una mostra "From the Safran House" al White Rabbit, una galleria trasformata in un'arena in cui gli impulsi, dai toni acidi e ghiacciati, parlano una lingua che sa di tragico e grottesco, ironico e mai scontato.

Sculture, disegni e installazioni degni di nota.
My favourite: le sculture "The Princess of Trance" e "Head of Ambiorix" entrambe di Bart Van Dijck.

Fino al 3 gennaio.

Buying the Whore, Anne Sexton

You are the roast beef I have purchased
and I stuff you with my very own onion.

You are a boat I have rented by the hour
and I steer you with my rage until you run aground.

You are a glass that I have paid to shatter
and I swallow the pieces down with my spit.

You are the grate I warm my trembling hands on,
searing the flesh until it's nice and juicy.

You stink like my Mama under your bra
and I vomit into your hand like a jackpot
its cold hard quarters.

Anne Sexton
