The Gay, Innocent and Heartless












Here are some pics from Zbigniew Libera project 'The Gay, Innocent and Heartless' (from the book published by Profile Foundation's gallery). I had a really good time together with the boys in the forest.

REVOLUTION GONE - DIK Fagazine in RASTER




I'm happy to invite you to the Polish presentation of the new issue of DIK Fagazine.

Saturday, 29th Nov, start: 6pm
Raster Gallery, Hoza 42 ap. 8, III Floor
http://www.raster.art.pl

DIK, as usually, concentrates on the people. For this issue - totally focused on contemporary Romania - we interviewed emerging artists (Sebastian Moldovan, Vlad Nanca), influential fashion people (Ovidiu Buta, Marian Palie, Olah Gyarfas), a choreographer and young actor (Paul Dunca), a club owner (Issa Nebal), a gay activist (Tudor Kovacs), a journalist who shared with us his impressive collection of photographs (Andrei Jianu) and the Romanian Madonna - Loredana.
Moreover, we show works by Alex Mirutziu, probably the only Romanian artist working with the subject of homosexuality and series of photographs made with a hidden camera nearby the salty lakes of Transylvania. The cover displays a drawing by Dan Perjovschi who contributed with the series of pieces created for this issue and titled The Bucharest Happy Hour Blues, while the comic strip is the work of the great Matei Branea.

In Raster Gallery DIK Fagazine will launch the installation with selected spreads from the magazine with artworks by featured artists. The event will be accompanied by my photo slideshow - Transilvania and shoots of Romanian boys. Our guest will have a chance to discover the sound installation by Kamil Radziszewski (based on the interviews recorded in Romania).

Graphics and my Loredana posters editions will be available for DIK fans during the evening.

New York City Boy



New York City boy
You'll never have a bored day
'Cause you're a New York City boy
Where Seventh Avenue meets Broadway

When you're a boy some days are tough
Lying on your bed playing punk rock and stuff
Home is a boot camp you gotta escape
Wanna go and wander in the ticker tape

more pics soon ;)

The Young and Evil

I'm happy to recommend a multimedia project organized by Tank TV and Tate Modern featuring videos selected by me.

'The Young and Evil' on www.tank.tv
Curated by Stuart Comer

14th July 2008 - 21st September 2008
The second part of this exhibition will be screened at Tate Modern on the 20th September 2008, 19.00.

The digital glow of the internet has largely replaced the dark space of the cinema as the site where furtive desires are first expressed and encountered on flickering screens. Consequently, the web continues to evolve into an uncanny hybrid of personal longing and collective interaction where configurations of watching and being watched take on radically new form. Reconsidering the historical contours and shifting relationships of sex and community in the digital age, a range of artists has been invited to select two works: one contemporary video shown to be shown online, and one historical film to be screened in the cinema. Selectors include Andrea Geyer, William E Jones, Carlos Motta, Emily Roysdon, Akram Zaatari, Daria Martin, Karol Radziszewski and Bruce Yonemoto.

The programme derives its title from The Young and Evil, a scandalous exposé of subcultures in Greenwich Village written by Charles Henri Ford and Parker Tyler in 1932. It was banned in the United States and England and was published by the Obelisk Press in Paris in 1933.

Including:
Selected by Stuart Comer: William E. Jones, 'Mansfield 1962', 2006.
Selected by William E. Jones: Naotaka Hiro, 'Piss Watch (One to Twelve)', 2006.
Selected by Carlos Motta: Tara Mateik, 'Operation Invert', 2003.
Selected by Akram Zaatari: Ali Cherri, 'You', 2008.
Selected by Emily Roysdon: Wu Ingrid Tsang, 'The Shape of a Right Statement I', 2008.
Selected by Andrea Geyer: Emily Roysdon, 'POW', 2005.
Selected by Daria Martin: Siobhan O'Brien, 'Physical Education'.
Selected by Karol Radziszewski: Mark Raidpere, 'Andrey/Andris', 2006.
Selected by Bruce Yonemoto: David Burns, 'ASSWAX', 1999, 4 min. 

The second part of this exhibition will be screened at Tate Modern on the 20th September 2008, 19.00.
