!! OMG, Scribble Squirlfriends: Marina Abramović & Kim Cattrall !!

Screen Shot 2013-05-10 at 8.12.19 AM.png
Durational performance artist Marina Abramović and ‘Sex & the City’ actress Kim Cattrall are real good squirlfriends, which is just super because I love them both; Marina for that piece “AAA-AAA” that she did with Ulay (Uwe Laysiepen) in ’78 where they screamed into each others’ mouths for ten minutes straight, and Kim because we both were born in Liverpool and moved to Canada, which I think makes us immigrational doppelgangers or soul sisters or something, oh and she looks hot for 56 year old, however I just look LIKE a 56 year old, she looks my age I look her age, basically.
Vmag eavesdropped on a phone conversation between the two, Abramović in New York, and Cattrall down south, researching for her upcoming role in Tennessee Williams’ ‘Sweet Bird Of Youth’ at The Old Vic in London-Town.
What Kim had to say about Marina:

“Her mind sees things in a very serious way, but she doesn’t.”

…and what Marina had to say of her friendship with Kim:

“This kind of friendship that is free from the pressure…to be smarter than the other one or play power games or feel jealousy.”

You can see their individual photos after the jump and read the whole transcribed conversation HERE, where they discuss peeling shrimp in Baton Rouge and how Marina -the woman who stabs herself with knives as part of her public performances- has to be coaxed by Kim to go on a twirly centrifugal carnival ride ‘because she was scared’!

!! OMG, DECADENT MUSH?!?: the Campana Brothers’ ‘Brazilian Baroque’ furniture !!

The recent Louis Vuitton collaborators the Campana Brothers [Fernando and Humberto] have created, amongst other pieces, a fluffy ‘fur chur’ with legs of gold leafed horticultural-ful and menagerie-ful legs, as part of their collection entitled ‘Brazilian Baroque’, although to me this reads a more indulgent ‘Rococo Recliners’, not to mention their even more opulent chaise lounge version.

!! OMG, want to party inside a giant homosexual disco sheep? !!

BAAAHs.jpg
Or, to be more precise, want to party inside a Big-Ass Amazingly Awesome Homosexual Sheep (a.k.a. BAAAHS) at the Burning Man Festival, that annual radical self-expression piss-up that invades Nevada’s Black Rock Desert at the end of August?
Well, it turns out you possibly can thanks to a group of intrepid San Francisco queens who have cooked up a plan to transform a school bus into a BAAAHS: a two-storey, 40-foot long geodesic dome that will be “part mutant vehicle, part penetrable sculpture, part socio-political statement, and part gay disco.” And all sheep.
To realize this ovis oasis, they are attempting to raise $10,000 via Kickstarter and appear to be well on their way to attaining that goal.
Why are they doing this? As is explained in the below Kickstarter video, the idea behind the BAAAHs is to bust open the insular world of gay “burners” by inviting everyone to enter a giant fluffy white sheep’s anus loaded DJs, dancers and performers booked by Honey Soundsystem’s Jacob Sperber.

And here are the men behind the BAAAHS:

!! OMG, sugar daddys: Beacon’s ‘TWWS’ !!

TWWS_Main_Front_large.jpg
Ghostly International signing Beacon’s freshman LP entitled ‘The Ways We Separate’ is delicious. They commissioned sculptor Fernando Mastrangelo -who is accustomed to using edible ingredients in his installations- to produce their record cover. A limited 20 copies were encased inside the sugar sleeve which housed the record itself and additional artwork [after the jump] on the reverse.
You can view a wee video of the artist Willy Wankering about in his studio casting the candy covers, and listen to Beacon’s ‘Bring You Back’ from that very same LP below.

!! OMG, dilated spectrum: CMYK bulbs !!

__dezeen_CMYK-bulb-by-Dennis-Parren-3.jpg
Holland-based designer Dennis Parren’s CMYK bulb[available with his accompanying pinhole lampshade, below] casts coloured shadows of cyan, magenta and yellow…well durrr. It consists of a combination of regular white light and coloured LED bulbs to give your shadow puppet show an all round more vibrant pzazz, and makes other shadows look absolutely dull as crap boring in comparison.
Basically CMYK is the new black!
