The drawings of Eleni Kamma

Apolis is a show that has just finished at the Hellenic-American Union space in Athens . It is curated by artist Kostis Velonis. The theme is about citiless "situations" and exiled artistic practises- which I am very identified with. Among from the works of Nikos Alexiou (upcoming Venice Biennial Greek participation), Andreas Angelidakis, Dimitris Foutris, Alexis Akrithakis, I want to include some drawings of Eleni Kamma which I wanted to write from long time now. Her drawings are inspired by architectural plans, children's books and decorative tapestry composed by baroque structures.

General Idea was a collective of three Canadian artists, Felix Partz, Jorge Zontal and AA Bronson, who were active from 1969 to 1994. Pioneers of conceptual and media-based art in Canada. Both Partz and Zontal died of AIDS in 1994. Bronson continues to work and exhibit as an independent artist, and has placed General Idea's archive at the Library of the National Gallery of Canada.

Tobias Bernstrup in Shanghai

If you happen to be Shanghai, China check out the solo show of Tobias Bernstrup at the Duolun Museum of Modern Art. In his work Tobias is using the visual language of pop culture, video games, Sci-fi, classicism and gothic noir, he has created his own unmistakable stage persona with gender-crossing live performances dressed in elaborate costumes of shiny rubber and heavy make up. In this show creates a thrilling story of two giant praying mantises duking it out over the Oriental Pearl and Jin Mao towers. Check his website here

The new A issue: Jun Takahashi

The new issue of A magazine is curated by Undercover's Jun Takahashi. The magazine includes an extensive look on his tokyo lab, his stuffed dolls and statues, his designed furniture, his drawings and of course his fashion. There are also some interviews. Here is an extract from his interview to Terry Jones about his last collection:" My first idea was to use just one fabric and one color on the wholebody (wrapped faces too). I thought it would be beautiful, attractive in a way. I am realising recently that people say it's dark, but for me it's beautiful [..]It's romantic, beautiful and also ugly in a way sometimes and all these kind of feelings are finally beautiful in a way." Check his last collection on here

Neen Poetry by Nikola Tosic

Nikola Tosic is a fellow artist, writer and a poet. He lives between Belgrade and Cape Town, sometimes as a spoiled brat and sometimes as a disciplined triathlon athlete. I consider his writings are very Neen. Last week in Amsterdam he read his last poems. I publish some of them here which the 2 of them were written and improvised while we were chatting on Skype a day so I am just pasting from the chat history (btw bless you Skype!) His site

stanley kubrick

i used to own
and i forgot to renew it
how damn that is
but life goes on
i am still a huge kubrick fan
i have all of his
movies music books
atlhough i did not see
any of his movies
in last three years

raw materials

nose drops are made of noses
toilet paper is made of toilets
riding saddles are made of riders
tooth paste is made of teeth
bathroom doors are made of bathrooms
sport watches are made of sports


angelo asked me for
hundredth time if i have a webcam
and for hundredth time
i told him i dont have one


i am the most neen person that i have ever met
and using this standard i judge everyone else
of course everyone is inferior to me
when it comes to being neen
some would probably disagree to this
but no one is really sure what neen is
so i win

AngeloSays Carbage Can

Is there something familiar to you on this photo right above? These days I had this idea of bringing AngeloSays logo on Second Life as a garbage can. The piece is located on the front side of the under-construction house that Andreas is designing for us. It is not ready yet and I am still learning how to make sculptures like that but you can have an idea of how it looks or maybe come and empty your trash right there. By the way, a small correction : Blue Boy Bar is not a website (as it appeared on a previous LIFO issue) it is a "real" virtual gay-bar on Second-Life. It is easy to find me there too.
