Current Viewing: PAOLA PIVI : "Ok, you are better than me, so what?": Galerie Perrotin New York : 909 Madison AvenueSubmitted by Wayne on Thu, 2013-09-19 17:36.
Paola Pivi, I love you. I've been following you for sometime now, a little bit like a groupie and somewhat like a kid following a circus. Your circus is usually populated by the most fantastic menagerie of exotic animals doing hilariously domestic things. Like a leopard knocked out from sipping too many cups of tea from leopard rimmed tea-cups for instance. Apart from being accessible and appropriate for all ages, I love your wry, dry sense of humor. The best thing an adult can retain from childhood is a sense of mischief and of play. Your art is rife with that. I'm so happy that you are the inaugural artist in the New York Galerie Perrotin space. I love that Emmanuel kept the French spelling for the American market. I mean it took me a while to stop misspelling it as "galarie" in my posts but that's process right?...Make the mistake...and thus learn from trying.

Whoah! Palais de Tokyo does it again, Not only in terms of convening another knock-out and suitably enough, drop dead curatorial exercise, but also in terms of the stunning cultural self-awareness embedded in the idea of this exhibit. For the premier contemporary art space in Paris to structure an exhibition around the concept of the "cemetery" is beyond ironic and actually a form of cultural criticism of the best order. Paris as a Necropolis... The museum as the repository of a decaying past...art as a cultural funerary rite! That's so dense and rich a self-critque especially because the thought-system is delivered via a bricolage of unexpected artists ranging from Rodin to Ian Hamilton Finley to Duane Michals. This exhibition goes down as one of the best of the year in TI's books.
