Tableau in Kingston

2013-10-22 19.16.29

A view captured after having dinner and meandering around town.  A surprise design and history experience in this storefront. I’m not sure which intrigues me more the organized documentary group photographs or the classic furniture. I’d love to have a reading room like this. So wonderful to window shop when everyone has gone to bed.

Books on shelves. Books on tables. Books hanging. Walls covered with books on display. Take books down, curl up and read. Fall in love with a book, buy it, and take it home.

Each of these books has been constructed from a single-sheet surface that is no larger than 11 x 17 inches. Over one hundred artists submitted books, addressing the theme: ritual.

Curating and installing artwork.

Curating and installing art exhibitions isn’t glamorous. It takes a barrel full of skills and some considerable math and physical effort. I’ve been installing a show for the past couple of days. All artwork presents challenges but 3D work requires more physical structures to display and present work properly.

I love doing the work — all of it.

Dance, dance, dance — Pina

 

So looking forward to seeing this film.

I’ve always been fascinated by this work. Looking for video examples of my favorites.

 

from the promo:

PINA is a feature-length dance film in 3D with the ensemble of the Tanztheater Wuppertal Pina Bausch, featuring the unique and inspiring art of the great German choreographer Pina Bausch, who died in the summer of 2009. PINA is directed by Wim Wenders (Buena Vista Social Club, Wings of Desire), who was a long-standing friend of Pina’s.Wenders takes the audience on a sensual, visually stunning journey of discovery into a new dimension: straight onto the stage with the legendary ensemble and follows the dancers out of the theatre into the city and the surrounding areas of Wuppertal – the place, which for 35 years was the home of Pina Bausch.
