Really bad picture, but yeah, I went to see Cold War Kids last night at Terminal 5 and it was an amazing gig and it made me really, really happy. A great gift from my sister Susanna.
The fantastic Icelandic band Hjaltalin and beautiful cover designed by my dear friend; the super talented Regina Arnadottir.
-How is the Paris art world different than the NYC art world?
-We have more time to think and less obligation to drink.

“…I transform myself in advance into an image…”
Montage for Three is a choreography-of-images that takes its source material entirely from found photographs, both famous and obscure. The two dancers embody the photographs with the absurd and impossible aim of giving presence to something which is absent. They strive to erase the inherent sentimentality of the photographs in order to see what lies beneath the nostalgia. The living/moving/present bodies confront the mechanical/static/reproduced bodies until the two forms begin to exchange roles. The still images begin to take on a life of their own, as the dancers begin to serve as a trigger for the viewer’s memory.
