CURRENT VIEWING: In. Border. Deep : Pierre Huyghe : Hauser & Wirth (London)

The ‘Human Mask’ film is inspired by a real situation in Japan, in which a monkey has been trained to work as a waitress.The ‘Human Mask’ film is inspired by a real situation in Japan, in which a monkey has been trained to work as a waitress.

A monkey masked as a Japanese child, lilies stolen from Monet’s garden and a stone sculpture that’s warm to the touch are but a few of the unexpected elements at Pierre Huyghe sensational new London show at Hauser & Wirth. Building on the garden he created in a huge park in Kassel at the last Documenta, with its live, wandering dogs and an entire manipulated ecosystem, Huyghe's current expansion of his oeuvre positions him as one of the current masters of cultural spectacle. Scale it seems is the new battleground for art stardom. Yes we said that dirty word. Press release post-jump.

TI IS MAD FOR:JONATHAN HOROWITZ X OPENING CEREMONY

TI is not adverse to a HTT (head-to-toe) statement dedicated to the Dot.TI is not adverse to a HTT (head-to-toe) statement dedicated to the Dot.

Of course TI is apt to sign off on the collaboration between a zeitgeist defining brand and a New York-based artist mad for dots.

CURRENT READING: DIANA AT HER BATH + THE WOMEN OF ROME: PIERRE KLOSSOWSKI: Marsilo

Klossowski turns the sketch that is the myth into a rich and lyrical exegesis that entangles the male gaze vs the female gaze.Klossowski turns the sketch that is the myth into a rich and lyrical exegesis that entangles the male gaze vs the female gaze.

Pierre Klossowski, the lapsed Catholic intellectual with a Polish aristocratic title (his brother being the notorious Balthus), a childhood education in Germany, and a legacy of philosophical treatises on Nietzche and Sade, has never been the most lucid of writers. In fact he never even tried that particular trick. Klossowski studied Latin so extensively, it corrupted his French, leading him to a lifetime love of archaic words and long, multi-part sentences with some pretty extended sub-clauses. Yet his influence was such that not only did intellectual giants such as Foucault declare themselves fans, Klossowski's system of thought and of writing was an explicit influence on works like Foucault's own "History Of Sexuality".
