i told you i ran out of titles
so that is what it says on this check on my desk
jesper sold one of her artworks outta my show there at V1 way back when and we r just waiting
to feed maneater international their just desserts i guess you could say!
man it reminds me i need to hang around aurel more
i really could use some good old female empowerment
i am used to wearing the pants and i have felt recently like i am wearing instead a frilly lace pink tutu
which is what i assume would be the opposite of pants wearing
maybe i should try wearing neither pants nor skirt for a while and see how that goes
actually i have been dressing like this lately
dont worry, i have no urge to look attractive
so we are all on the same page with that
this is in CUTLOG
a fair we forgot to promote fully!
no but the fair is in this big building on the LES
suffolk and rivington
and has some really interesting things in it and we DO want everyone to go!
joe took this where was he oh yeah in Mile End actually!
where am i now
oh ok we are totally cruising now
on the way to Frieze opening day
Asger checking out the Ryans
havent we seen these before?
i thought i had seen them before
some definitely i had not seen
man this Theaster Gates woudl have killed it in our Xstraction show
shoulda asked after it damn!
Rashid I actually did invite to be in the show but the survey says
honking is MY greatest pleasure!!!!
just ask Nick or Patrick or whoever
The Nicolai Wallner booth
entertaining me with Shrigley since 2006!
i took a photo of as many as i had time for
i kept thinking this was Anna Sew Hoy
but it is Amanda Ross Ho
man you think my job is easy????
i have to keep shit like that straight
i forgot who made this actually
i know i know
that kinda “any club that woudl want me as a member” line
but dammit i could have blown most of this shit outta the water!
or “off the island” or whatever
walking around with Peter as Asger was super fun Peter tells a LOT of jokes
shit you cant see the painting sorry guys
Keltie and Chris
I guess we are in the M I and Nash booth
ooh and my first “job” or whatever
intern at Whitney working on the Joan Mitchell retrospective
i walked by too fast i should have looked at this longer it looks neat
and i shoulda taken photo of the label cuz i forgot who made this!
haha lots of photos of lonely ladies texting
what do people think now when they look at this?
because my brain is MUSH right now but maybe your brains are more firm
who won “best dinner guest” at our last gallery dinner!
this was a curated booth
whose efforts were appreciated
it is a sculpture
of a girl, looking for cell phone privacy or what?
i tried to get details but its really hard you gotta see his works in person
this one was i think about the world that is caused by drug addition
man i could get titles for a year with just this detail shot
Nadim, does he fit into your FORENSIC show???
last snaps as they shoo us out
and tape off their precious floors
i wanted to go back to my idea of wearing a skirt and feeling powerless
its not about, a swath of fabric that separates the legs
more about the dogged tenacity of sexual stereotyping
the lack of enough words to get away from it entirely
the slippery slope of powerlessness
because of course you dont lose it all at once, you lose it more like a COTANGENT graph
as in, slow at first and then a rapidly increasing negative assymtote
man school was JUST long enough ago that i forgot how to spell ASS IN TOTE
this is a bug not art and i guess i will just then spell it ASS IN TOTE
i felt pretty in control of myself and a situation for the past many months even up to just a few months ago shit maybe even a few weeks ago
when all of a sudden i rapidly slipped down the sea-weedy rock of feelings into the stagnant pool of dependance and neediness
i can’t UGH not care and the more i try to UGH not care the more i slip down down down
the more i think about the slipping the more i slip
the more i ignore it the more i slip, too
there is no path for me to get back on top of this rock and let the
rock know who is fucking boss and that it can’t toy with my feelings
which is why i need to buy some stock in Maneater International
and take some sort of power back over what is going on in my life
whoever cares less wins
that is sadly how the world works
and i am thinking of ways to make myself not care
it’s like “being cool”
because being cool really means not caring what others think
and so if you WANT to be cool, you are already REALLY NOT COOL
it is just a wee logic puzzle it is not super complex, it is just some Ps and Qs and stuff
once i figure it out I PROMISE to let you guys know
many ferries later we were allowed to leave the island
i havent seen enough episodes of LOST to make a LOST joke
or ANY episodes of any reality TV show where like, batchelorettes have to leave an island
is that how it goes?
this batchelorette is excited to leave her island
no batchelorette is an island afterall
stopped in with Asger at the JADE hotel a new hotel we did the art for
then i guess this looks like the standard?
after destroying ourselves the night before at le baron neither of us felt like drinking anything at all
i think i drank so much that night that i made myself sick this whole like last four days to be honest i have felt totally ill for days
im not like making a joke or speaking in some sort of code or even necessarily tying this back into the theme of powerlessness, i really want to start drinking way less and mean to do it
it cant be any harder than giving up drugs
because giving up drugs but then letting yourself get as blackout drunk as you want at all times is not a real solution to life’s problems
as Joe has told me many a time
and now that i have the whole drug thing down i think i can maybe take baby steps towards the drinkign thing
i am pretty sick of waking up and being like “oh. look what happened”
and i am mostly referring to bad tweets not casual sex or violence or anything really bad
one reason it has been hard to identify as a problem is because it has never caused me a big problem
just lots of little ones for a really really long time
this is getting too heavy
I’m going to have one cocktail and start solving my little power puzzle and keep you posted
One thought on “Maneater International”
Fuggin great post! ARt/Existential angst! yes!
