Natacha Paganelli

“Kolo”, created by French-artist Natacha Paganelli during her artist residency in Serbia. It is currently on display at Kunsthalle Mulhouse (France) until January. Can someone go see it and let me know how it is installed in the gallery? I think it would be amazing if it was projected in a circular room.

  • i want to see this BIG (and in person)

    • natacha

      Dear Jeff,

      you could have seen Kolo in Lille untill November in big circular screen, the exhibition named Dancing machine. So that’s means usually i present this work installation in that way …. So if you need more informations, you could ask me… I’m right now in Korea working on a nother video. Thanks for having spread my video on vimeo, it was amazing for me, so i really thank you.


      • hey my pleasure natacha! your work is wonderful (and i realise i am not getting the full experience) please keep me up to date on your work!

  • Eric

    How is this a year old already and the internet hasn’t seen it yet???

    So awesome.

  • hey…I was at the opening and actually it is not projected on a circular room ;-/ but it’s a great piece!

    Thanks for the link!

    kiss kiss kiss

    • i wish i could go out there to see it!

  • that’s because:

    1. you don’t speak french
    2. you don’t speak serb… me neither
    3. it is not well promoted! but now it is well promoted

  • war and peace !

  • lapetitefaon

    Wow, strange and beautiful, reminds me of Whirling Dervishes!

  • This is amazing, is there a way of finding out who composed the melody for this video? Does Natacha have an official site? Are there more pieces of her out there? (I did a brief research and only found her on vimeo) What’s the name of her musician? Oh my God…I’m in love, this is seriously insane… great post Jeff, I wish this kinda artists could tour worldwide.

    And the circle room installation would be totally amazing, I think it would be a visual upgrade for the feeling it already detonates.

    • Marrine

      About her musician..look at the Vimeo! Here is themtc who made it. He is from Paris and that’s his myspace: http://www.myspace.com/mtclab

    So captivating even on a small screen. I can see if being projected in a circular space. Either way, I wish I could experience it projected right in front of me.

  • segg

    oh shit this is amazing. tense in the middle when there is nothing happening. love the movments 🙂

  • gorgeous! reminds me of Renee Rhodes‘ work a bit…

  • ynez

    this was amazing… i was surprised by how much it terrified me

  • Holy damn, this was so weird… and extremely entertaining.

“Spirit Quest” Skateboard Film Will Melt Your Mind


Colin Read (Mandible Claw) has made quite a name for himself over the past few years as one of skateboarding’s most exciting filmmakers. His film Tengu: God of Mischief was burnt into the retinas of every skater on the planet when it came out – specifically the subway section of the film where Koki Loaiza ollies across the train tracks (towards the third rail) at the 145th St stop (watch it here). Shout out to our bud photographer Allen Ying of 43 Magazine who snapped the infamous photo (which you can see here).

Read’s newest film “Spirit Quest” has the energy of his previous films with a heavy dose of mind-melting editing and camera tricks. I watched the trailer above roughly a million times to analyze what I was actually looking at. Love the multi-cam stuff and the sequence at 0:33 is a thing of beauty. Creativity like this makes me want to go make stuff. I was so excited about the film I had to toss a few questions at the Claw himself. Enjoy a short interview below!
