THING OF THE DAY, NOVEMBER 27th…..FAITH47… SIXONESIX… SYNTHS… CREMATOR….
Thing of the day? Thing is…. well…. No, no need for words today, well okay, just a few then, not too many, no thrills this time around, keep it simple, here’s some FAITH47 footage
Words aren’t really needed today, well there’s no time if the truth be known, there’s not enough hours in the day to be getting all wordy and Organ on you today….. That film is ‘Rhapsody’, a piece completed for the Wall Therapy mural project based in Rochester, NY. Cinematography – Evan Schap and Eamon McBride, Editing – Evan Schap, Music – Fever Ray
And here a piece of wooden board that SIXONESIX spotted on Vyner Street the other day while checking out the Primaries opening at Cultivate, “fill my water bottle please” he demanded and off he went brush in hand….
“If you’re going to try, go all the way. Otherwise, don’t even start. This could mean losing girlfriends, wives, relatives and maybe even your mind. It could mean not eating for three or four days. It could mean freezing on a park bench. It could mean jail. It could mean derision. It could mean mockery–isolation. Isolation is the gift. All the others are a test of your endurance, of how much you really want to do it. And, you’ll do it, despite rejection and the worst odds. And it will be better than anything else you can imagine. If you’re going to try, go all the way. There is no other feeling like that. You will be alone with the gods, and the nights will flame with fire. You will ride life straight to perfect laughter. It’s the only good fight there is.” Charles Bukowski
Coming out as a limited edition cassette very soon, here’s a taste from “Alpha Ralpha Boulevard” (Field Hymns, 2013). From CREMATOR “Don’t listen if you don’t like synths” they say….
Another piece of wood, a heavy wooded lid from a packing crate left on Vyner Street, a one time blank piece of wood that ended up on the wall of Cultivate, if you leave it on our street then chances are someone will paint something on it……
Was that a little out of order then? here some more Faith 47 footage, a show that the South African artist put on with DALeast (China)
“After working on the streets independently for the past decade, this is the artist’s debut collaborative show. Exploring the notion of repurposing found objects and material interactions with the human environment ‘Antenna Garden’ is a summation of the artist’s journey as individuals” – Tho show has been now, .well worth a look at the video though….
More tomorrow? Maybe….
