Vern Blosum at Kunsthalle Bern

by mousse

July 23~2014

As most exhibitions do, this one starts with a story. At first glance, it’s easy to think that Vern Blosum’s exhibition at Kunsthalle Bern, curated by Lionel Bouvier, is not an uncommon one. In the archaeological dig of the past it seems for each new young artist, there’s a rediscovered counterpart; the resurrection of figure forgotten by history, who for all intensive purposes may be forgotten just as quickly again. When you read a bit deeper, Blosum’s story comes with its fair share of intrigue, deception, and subversion—a young artist decides to play the game of the then-nascent movement of pop art and finds brief success. Leo Castelli sells the work, not knowing Blosum’s true identity. After mounting skepticism, Alfred H. Barr (a figure, who like most in art history, seem so foreign to our current landscape that they are almost a fiction themselves) begins a quasi-witch hunt, which led him to eventually find that there was no birth record in Blosum’s “birth state” of Colorado. The discovery of his lack of identity led to the physical (and perhaps equally ideological) removal of his painting from the Museum of Modern Art in New York.

Luciano Perna “life is full of surprises, more or less interesting…” at Downtown Photoroom, Los Angeles

by mousse

July 19~2014

“Last year, large quantities of silver and gold were detected in the Mediterranean Sea by a group of scientists. The particles were discharged from an underwater volcano named Kolumbo. Silver has been used for thousands of years for tools and ornament, for trade, and for monetary systems. Photography consumed more than 30% of the silver produced in 1998, though its use has declined more recently due to the emergence of digital technology and home printing devices.

We have created dialogues on contemporary art (with artists, art critics and curators, collectors and organizers) with that unique and bewitching laboratory of life that is Sicily; an everyday life which is bursting with values, but also has its endemic weaknesses.
