Artist: Chris Burden | Title: Through the Night Softly

After seeing the performance pieces this past Sunday at the Ever After exhibition, I started thinking about how performance art has changed over the years. OFFSpace Founder, Kathrine Worel and I were talking about how there’s a fixation to document and showcase (as much as we possibly can). Being present (truly in the moment) without documentation is so difficult these days. I started thinking about Chris Burden’s work. Specifically, his work Through the Night Softly. It made me think about all the things you can and cannot do on television. Anyway, watch the video…

I haven’t forgotten about my last installment of the Spread Exhibition (which ended last week). I have yet to write my reflections on Laetitia Sonami and her selected artist Jacqueline Gordon. It’s forthcoming. I’ve got so much stuff in the pipeline and as mentioned, it’s been a pretty hectic and draining (to say the least). In any case, here’s a shorter video of Sonami’s work along with a brief interview.
