INTERMEDIATE AS INTERMEZZO

VARIOUS ARTISTS

EDITION OF 100

 

"WATCHING TOSHIRO MIFUNE RUN ACROSS THE SCREEN UNTIL OUR EYES BURN, LONGING TO UNDERSTAND THE INSPIRATION BEHIND JACQUES-LOUIS DAVID'S 'THE DEATH OF MARAT,' NOT KNOWING WHETHER OR NOT ANTONIN ARTAUD WAS A POET, DIRECTOR, OR PERFORMANCE ARTIST: THIS IS WHERE WE FEEL AT HOME. YET AN ABSENCE, AN INTERROGATION, STILL CONSUMES US.

'IT FEELS STRANGE DOING THIS WITH SILENCE DRAPED BEHIND ME. IS SILENCE THE SOUNDTRACK TO OUR LIVES?'

THIS IS THE QUESTION EVERY ARCHITECT, PAINTER, CINEMATOGRAPHER, ETC., IS FORCED TO CONFRONT. BUT HIDDEN WITHIN THIS ARTISTIC UNCERTAINTY IS ANOTHER QUESTION: IS MY ART COMPLETE?

IN AN ATTEMPT TO MAKE THE INCOMPLETE SLIGHTLY MORE COMPLETE--TO MAKE THE INTERMEDIATE AN INTERMEZZO--FRATERNITY AS VANITY WILL PROVIDE FOUR TRACKS IN ORDER TO ACCOMPANY THE VISUAL ART PROVIDED BY BARDO. THESE TRACKS WILL BE AVAILABLE DIGITALLY VIA SOUNDCLOUD AND WITH A LIMITED RUN OF CASSETTE TAPES ONLY SOLD AT BARDO. 

ONCE BARDO'S NIGHT OF EXPERIMENTATION AND FLEETING AUDIO-VISUAL STIMULATION IS COMPLETE THE TRACKS WILL BE REMOVED AND THE TAPES DISCARDED. 

THE HEARTBEAT OF OUR NIGHT WILL END ONCE THE LAST PROJECTOR CLOSES ITS EYES. 

NEVERTHELESS, OUR COMMUNITY WILL NOT LAY TO REST BUT WILL CONTINUE TO 'LAY WITH ART.'"

 

BARDO WAS JUNE 11 AT DRKMTTR IN NASHVILLE, TN. THE 80 EXHIBITING ARTISTS FROM AROUND THE GLOBE RECEIVED A COPY OF FV003.
