“The Misfortunes of François Jane” by Patrick Pearse


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!

Ai Weiwei’s Playful Bamboo and Paper Kite Installation at Le Bon Marché


“Er Xi” (or “child’s play”) sees Ai Weiwei take on ancient Chinese folktales and traditional kite making techniques for the Le Bon Marché in Paris. The whimsical display covers three areas of the iconic department store, helping the contemporary (and sometimes controversial) artist/activist reach a different kind of audience. In addition to the storybook motif, Ai Weiwei incorporates narrative elements from various artistic movements, historical events, as well as his past body of work. Images below!
