DESCRIPTION OF THE WORLD, TURIN
DESCRIPTION OF THE WORLD, TURIN

Descrizione del mondo/Description of the World: This collective installation (in Turin this summer and online) was an untimely provocation in the Nietzschean sense of the Unzeitgemässe.

LIVED, SPOKEN WORD, SICILIANU
LIVED, SPOKEN WORD, SICILIANU

And as we were schooled by the friend of a friend in the tradition of theater/recitation/storytelling called cunto siciliano, possible heir to Greek bardic traditions, the bank too is distinguished by its vernacular fold, improvised.  

DIRECT DEMOCRACY
DIRECT DEMOCRACY

First vote in this country: 4 yeses supported by more than 95% of voters: no to privatizing water, letting powerful criminals loose, development of nuclear power. “And yet the wind still breathes….”: rundown of how to vote last weekend posted on the door for a social club of old men wearing derbys at dusk in […]

BY DESIGN
BY DESIGN

Nature once again reflecting culture, making its own vertigo and mask for a friend in what remains of the ingeniously experimental Greek baths.

DEVASTATION AS MONUMENT
DEVASTATION AS MONUMENT

Before the famed memorials designed by Eisenmann and Lin, in 1985-89, rose Alberto Burri’s high concrete sacks of a citywide Cretto: grey foundations as petrifaction and geometrical shroud for the rubble of the town of Gibellina—Gibbiddina in Sicilian, from the Arabic Gebel Zghir (“small mountain/height”)—medieval in aspect, though founded before the Greek settlements of Magna […]

CASTLE WITH IMPATIENCE
CASTLE WITH IMPATIENCE

Odescalchi, host of hushed stories of past horribleness, with dashboard, to be precise.

WRITING AS DRAWING
WRITING AS DRAWING

And drawing as writing in the work of William Kentridge: the potential, I surmise in listening to this brilliant lecture and conversation, to reintroduce provisionality to a stultifying historical record, just as it’s constantly introduced to the Johannesburg landscape of burnt felt (charcoal terrain that draws itself) and mounds of hollow-fallout in crusades for gold: […]

X LOCUS (ABLUVION)
X LOCUS (ABLUVION)

“For those who submitted to disorientation, it was a success.” “Submit,” says Tom: “that’s the perfect word.” An old archaeologist friend, alongside whom I worked at my first and only dig, two decades ago, veering over the hole listening for voices.

NEW AMSTERDAM
NEW AMSTERDAM

And our favorite stone carver, who taught us so much about Rome, shows up on the other side of the world in another medium as our M and S did on East 10th, via an animate map at the tip of just-expired Mannahatta, timed for the 400th anniversary of Hudson’s voyage up the river. Diane […]

CO-LOCUS IN ROME
CO-LOCUS IN ROME

Adrian Van Allen photographs a seemingly unphotographable installation (“questo happening” Stefano calls it), ours, last night—X LOCUS: with the mounting of tramonto the invisible becoming visible, but only by a third of the quadrant: witnessing as if detached with anxiety over the hegemony of vision the vernissage crowd seeking, drinking, confused, drifting, circulating with the […]

IMMEDIATELY SO DREAMLESS

On the way to Santa Prassede, following the detour of buses, running into a truck whose emblem is a head inside a gear marked “San Precario” or “Saint Precarious”: A spirited, nearing joyous, parade against (re)becoming minds in flight: the demonstrations of precari, workers, researchers without security, enact their part of the “manifestazione continua” rising […]
