When Kazimir Malevich painted in 1915 his black square he was ready, he made his final point of complete nothing. How pretentious it is for SL artists, who are normally known for glueing prims together and create sheep and dragonflies that move with virtual cogwheels in Harry Potter landscapes and Game of Thrones adventures, to think they have the capacity and skills to add something to Malevich black square. How snob it is to think they can lighten up Malevich and friends a little to make it more digestible for the masses `Oh, when we paint the black square white we have even a movie screen…what a great surprise.’
In LEA 8 they created in the good old awful tradition of Pirats those endless walkways to NOTHING. And if it was only towards NOTHING Malevich was maybe honoured a little bit, but no, the paths lead you to platforms with “art” that must taste a little Russian Avantgarde but are without any relevance, significance or danger.
Jo Ellsmere took the dolls she already set up for years in her boxes, (see THE MASK) to the Salvation Army and bought them some new vintage clothes with some avant-garde looking patterns on the chest, job done.
An alt had to be used to see Jo Ellsmere’s Teletubbies
Soror Nishi never was so uninspired as here, but hey, what you expect from a lady who is specialised in trees and now at once has to be abstract. So she farted some coloured stick and stones and job done.
Complete ridiculous are the contributions of Dadadaddy Eupalinos Ugajin, who they must have forbidden to add a cow or a speaking typewriter, so he dug up his boring French fries bag and his toilet paper producer, hoping nobody would pay to much attention. Oh, and he has again those marvellous leaves that nobody has an idea what they symbolise, but to understand the deeper grounds of his mind you better first read this, it’s only 195 pages: http://leecworkshops.wikispaces.com/file/view/yevgeny-zamyatin-we.pdf
So you understand all. Viewing art is a hell of a job.
My poor sister Bryn was so desperate to cooperate in this project she agreed to REZ SOME PRIMS. Omg, poor thing.
So no wonder every visitor hurry to the museum shop to buy some dolls on strings from Nessuno Myoo or Alpha Auer to hang on the wall to prove they visited the exhibition. And it must been said, Alpha is the only one who found a way to add something to the Russian Avantgarde with her smart choice of El Lizzitsky for her avatars, as they already had the 3D component in them.
Whole LEA 8 is an example of sad re-creation in the vain assumption of people who think they can add something that is great already. When you really want to add something first thing you should do is show NO RESPECT and use and fuck up whatever you like, in that case maybe something new might come out but watching the people here I can only say that the people of Saudi Arabia came a lot closer to Malevich with their Black Box in Mecca.
So is there nothing more to do to save this event? Yes there is, my dear wife Rose Borchovski and my dear friends Soror Nishi, Alpha Auer, Jo Ellsmere, Nessuno Myoo and my sister Bryn Oh can all demand the need of my presence in LEA 8 so the dictators of LEA can, just as in the time of the dictators Lenin and Stalin, lift my ban and I promise I will do what I can to fuck things up a little so this big joke will not go like this to the history books. And talking about history books, when you want to teach and preach, buy a school or a church.
