Curbing Spring Fever!

In Where art is never curbed... on April 8, 2011 at 6:06 am

We can’t curb the Spring and it is finally here. In March we had Art Week, the weather was iffy, but Aimee Margolis performed at Scope NY First View with the special VIP performance of her Edible Art Project. So Yoon Kim videoed the art piece with all the spectators gladly being part of the performance. The Edible Art Video will be in my next blog entry….

The Edible Art was created literally by the artist who baked and etched statements on sugar and ginger cookies with her own hands.  ( no out-sourcing here, Jeff Koons.) These 66 cookies were given out to curators, collectors, and dealers to nurture the art community and to poke them at the same time. With statements they literally ate were-  “Art You”,  “Money vs Talent”,  “Art Confusion”,  “Art Guru”, “Talent or Tawdry”, “Beauty over Death”, and “Confused by Truth”. The art community was ravenous and ate them up but, for the more serious collector they had the option to save the art work and put it on the wall. That was a dilemma for many, to eat or to save the art as the Art Giver, Aimee Margolis  walked slowly through the crowd choosing to give an edible art piece, or a full colored post-card of the work, or a colored slip of paper describing the performance. It was an amazing, original work that was well received from everyone including Florida collector Martin Z Margulies to Peter Surace of Rare Gallery and everyone in between.

 “There was plenty of great art to see at Art Week” Written by Aimée Margolis

Volta, with their beautiful location near the Empire State Building was very well organized with plenty of leaflets to take and remember ones favorite artists. Though a little too tight and structured, the creative spark it once had made it harder to find this year. Something that was cool, was an Israeli artist – Daniel Rozin, who had a great mix of high science and detritus with his Trash Mirror. This piece changed when you got near it with the trash elements moving with your movements making your body silhouetted upon the work. Another piece totally technological looking was a large monitor that repeated hundreds of black lines and every time you moved it would change and make an impression of you. The work made animpression on me and me on the work.

Dan Rozin’s piece with an impression of me in the work.
