Dr. Sketch at San Francisco

November 30th, 2009

The best idea in years: Dr. Sketchy´s Anti Art Scholl.

People drawing.

Molly Crabtree thought that the art class lacks something… and here it is: Burlesque models and figure drawing class all together in a perfect cocktail.

It was great.

Eva Von Slut.

It was the other day at Mina Gallery in San Francisco.

A beautiful lady: Eva Von Slut and a lot of people ready to draw her. Besides: wine, good music, lots of people drawing in a huge table, amazing drawings by the way… a contest, a gallery…

Nano me empuja al borde del Cañón del Colorado a ver más allá del paisaje que tengo delante.
Curiosamente.. salen hilos!

//Nano push me just “a bout” of the Grand Canyon to see further than the lanscape that it is in front of me…
And the result is… more threads

Dibujos de Señoras.// Drawings of Ladies

November 30th, 2009

Desde hace algún tiempo me da por dibujar señoras.
La cosa empezó en la consulta del ginecólogo.. cuando lo del quiste, que pasé muuuchas horas en salas de espera llenas de mujeres y ahora las pinto en aeropuertos, cafeterías y museos y me imagino sus cuerpos desnudos…
En fin, que se ha transformado en una perversión (más) que sumar a la lista.

Éstas son algunas de las señoras retratadas y el cuadernito en ISSUU.

//I have been drawing ladies for a while.
It just started at the gynecology waiting room, last year I spent long hours at the doctor and it was full of woman, now I paint them in airports, coffeshops and museums… and I imagine their naked bodies…
Well, a new perversion to add to the list, I guess.

Those are some of the portrait ladies and the notebook at ISSUU.

Have I none// Otro no tengo.

November 29th, 2009

He trabajado con Carlos haciendo los vídeos para esta función, un texto increíble de Edward Bond. A ratos difícil, críptico, extremadamente poético y evocador…

//I have been working with Carlos making the videos for the show, an amazing text by Edward Bond, which is sometimes difficult and cryptic, but extremely poetic and powerful. In Madrid, at the Círculo de Bellas Artes from December the 5th.

A partir del día cinco de diciembre en el Círculo de Bellas Artes de Madrid .

Diseño de la web de Lino Escalera.

November 18th, 2009

Estos días he estado diseñando la web de Lino Escalera, uno de los mejores “nuevos realizadores” del cine español.
Fernando Guillén se ha encargado de la parte dura del asunto, programando una web fácilmente actualizable y muy ágil y yo he hecho el diseño.

Aún estamos en pruebas, pero se puede ver algo aquí:

Bob Willson and Belle Isabelle (Hupert) at BAM.

November 17th, 2009

This is a picture of the Harvey Theatre where we went to see Quartet. A Heiner Müller´s version of Les Liaisons dangereuses, by Pierre Choderlos de Laclos.
Isabelle Hupert was amazing. The best of the whole play. The set was completely Wilson… beautiful and extreme and sometimes the words by Müller where poetry…
I liked it.

Zee

November 14th, 2009

I went to see Zee by Kurt Hentschläger, one of the most incredible experiences I ever have.
You enter in a non-space, non-dimension place where all the perception it is suspended.

I wonder of what Bachelard could have says inside that room.

Photo of the performance´s leaflet.

What people from future perfect says:

“ZEE is a rigorous mindscape; a hallucinatory architecture of light; a dream machine.
An enclosed space is filled with a dense, odorless fog that completely obscures the walls, floor and ceiling. Individuals freely roam this environment, while flickering light filters through the haze, inducing hallucinations and sensory distortions within each viewer. A droning soundscape intensifies this full-immersion experience, shifting dynamically according to changes in the color, frequency and intensity of the light.
Exhilarating and meditative, Kurt Hentschläger’s pulsing, stroboscopic and mind-altering ZEE pushes the boundaries of human perception and creates an intense audiovisual journey. A constant innovator and one of the most influential figures in the field of contemporary art and technology, Hentschläger merges conceptual art, sound, video, performance, and technology in his large-scale installations”.

In my own words, when you go inside, what you experience is unique from those who are sharing the room with you. There is at the beginning fear and loneliness… and after a while: that thing becomes your universe… For me it was like a kind of acid trip full of color and geometrical patterns that generate curves, impossible arquitectures and sometimes even people… weird figures here and there.

Amazing!

I began for doing the flyer to let people know about it.

I Am Not Me, the Horse is Not Mine// William Kentridge.

November 12th, 2009

Beautiful: “The nose” by Gogol meeting Cervantes, the very idea of creation and the playfull meaning of performance.
I really already like William Kentridge´s drawings but I really like him too. It was funny and humble.

A picture of the show.

In the audience: Lou Reed and Laurie Anderson.

The performance by William Kentridge is part of the performa09 Biennale in New York: a performance festival full of possibilities which is running up to the end of the month.

I have seen already the last film by Tacita Dean about Merce Cunningham, a performance by Joan Jonas and and the performa hub it is full of interesting videos. I miss the tickets to go and see Yvonne Rainer… well… You cann´t have everything…

It was great, I found out about Mara’s work and weird and mysterious airports in Spain, María came to see me and it was beautiful to see her after so long… and I met Ester and her beautiful project Shadows of the cliff, that you can check out at http://www.esterjovesoligue.com/.

I also met Susan Hilvert from Ohio, who presented a beautiful documentary film about the New York Marathon, which it was awesome and extremely funny, that kind of sense of humor that I love.

I finally presented Orlando, happy about it!

And nice people, beautiful place and a lot of work from Mara and the other organizers… Thank you very much!!
