Eating a Book
You may remember American artist Taylor Holland from his brilliantly absurd “FRA[MES]” project we featured a few years back (click here for previous posts). A father now, Holland’s latest project chronicles his failed attempts to document his son’s first year of life.
Due to an iPhone frequently lacking memory, rather than a series of clearly recorded moments, what Holland has instead is a collection of blurry approximations of the photos that would have been. See more bittersweet out-of-storage notifications from “Cannot Take Photo” below!
Paris-based Studio Dessuant Bone created a collection of blue wire cutlery and dishes that, set against a grid paper, appear like sketches or volume drawings. Made as part of an exhibition involving the theme of fasting, see more images from the “Fasted” Tableware Series below.
Australian-born filmmaker Patrick Pearse’s latest film is an exploration of the human psyche as it charts the internal journey of a young man and the woman with whom he becomes obsessed.
Set in Paris, the two characters feed off one another and their surroundings, even as they each inhabit their own delusional worlds. Blurring the boundaries between François Jane’s ideal and his reality, Pearse veers into the surreal.
“The Misfortunes of François Jane” premieres at the Guggenheim in New York October 24th (you can RSVP to the premiere here), with a live performance by composer Graz Mulcahy. Watch the trailer and see more images from the film below!
