i dont trust artists
i have rules: never enter an artist’s hut
never put on headphones or apparell or get into any stirrups
never let an artist convince you to remove your shoes
if you follow these rules then you may walk through the Arsenale’s FARE MUNDI with me
i cant wait to have fresh sharp video presentations
i reluctantly went into this dark room by an asian lady but was pleased to find it full of common appliances and electronics, invisible exccept for their little ON lights
never get into bed with an artist either
this is a Paul Chan work that was “polarizing”
its a humpfest
we went into this old bookshop and the owner made us go in the back to see
he thought this was hilarious
back in the fart fair
this was a sad piece
oh no it appears we have come full circle
ok what is next?
and his homely woman friend
we went to a fun dinner at the secret restaurant
passed out New York Minute pins
im hungis in the booth again
the next day perhaps?

festivalism festivalism! you know what roberta smith calls festivalism?
there was a hungarian pavillion about criminal phrenology
at the end there was a mirror so you could “see yourself as the criminal” or something
have i mentioned that i love patrick?
this is Tobias Rehberger (sp?) cafe
it won the second palm frond of art peace award
bruce nauman’s american pavillion
eatin boogers eatin boogers
that is how i spell bookers
you can pick your friends and you can pick your nose…..
get it? it took me a sec
the inside is all “lounge gone wrong”
and the title of the pavilion, danish i think, is “The Collector”
did i mention there were 6 cute young men lounging around in there?
the russian pavillion was cool
this room of blacklight activated crowd painting
surrounding you with cheering noises. scary and good
made you feel like a gladiator
the other artists were less good but still ok
(which is better than ‘just bad’)
french pavilion was sorta good
this one was poo
this pavilion was just more giardini
imagine patrick going “look kathy, you would like this!”
jones mekas? no that cant be right. something like that though
dale chihuly (snicker)!
