“This piece was primarily a trust exercise, in which she told viewers she would not move for six hours no matter what they did to her.  She placed 72 objects one could use in pleasing or destructive ways, ranging from flowers and a feather boa to a knife and a loaded pistol, on a table near her and invited the viewers to use them on her however they wanted. 
Initially, Abramović said, viewers were peaceful and timid, but it escalated to violence quickly.  “The experience I learned was that … if you leave decision to the public, you can be killed… I felt really violated: they cut my clothes, stuck rose thorns in my stomach, one person aimed the gun at my head, and another took it away. It created an aggressive atmosphere. After exactly 6 hours, as planned, I stood up and started walking toward the public. Everyone ran away, escaping an actual confrontation.”
This piece revealed something terrible about humanity, similar to what Philip Zimbardo’s Stanford Prison Experiment or Stanley Milgram’s Obedience Experiment, both of which also proved how readily people will harm one another under unusual circumstances.” 
This performance showed just how easy it is to dehumanize a person who doesn’t fight back, and is particularly powerful because it defies what we think we know about ourselves. I’m certain the no one reading this believes the people around him/her capable of doing such things to another human being, but this performance proves otherwise.”

Damn!!!

Saira Hunjan

I’ve loved Saira Hunjan since I started thinking about getting a tattoo but when I found out last year that she’d retired from tattooing I was so gutted! If I ever got a tattoo done, I’d only get it done from her. Why? Because she’s incredible, intricate and unique!

Check out her new collection for Ettinger here

- S

love her

Gah, she doesn’t get enough attention in the tattoo world.. She’s amazing!

So nice!!!

Tony Orrico - Penwald Drawings

“Penwald Drawings are a series of bilateral drawings in which Tony Orrico explores the use of his body as a tool of measurement to inscribe geometries through movement and course. His choreographic gestures derive from the limitation of (or spontaneous navigation within) the sphere of his outstretched arms. Line density becomes record of Orrico’s mental and physical sustain as he commits his focus to a greater concept of balance throughout extended durations of drawings. The master of each drawing is a conceptual score of Orrico’s efficacious techniques, imposed variables, and specified durations or objectives.”

Reminds me of Dan Gilsdorf work.

The only people I would care to be with now are artists and people who have suffered: those who know what beauty is, and those who know what sorrow is: nobody else interests me.

I feel the same….
