April 3, 2013  |  Uncategorized  |  Comments Off on ARTIST TALK: HENRY ROLLINS x PHARRELL WILLIAMS

Needless to say, young Pharrell is more than a little outgunned in this artist discussion with legendary Black Flag frontman and punk icon Henry Rollins, but it’s fun to watch the two dig in. Luckily, the topic of conversation never turns to wanton hedonism, conspicuous consumption, or overt consumerism, but hey, why would it?…

The name Bombino is likely news to the majority of Westerners, but now that The Black Keys’ frontman Dan Auerbach has taken up his cause, we can only hope that his cryptic moniker will soon become a household name among discerning rock fans. Hailing from the Tuareg region of Saharan Africa, the nomadic guitar virtuoso was discovered by the Ohio guitar player turned mega rock star via a short online clip of his music. What Auerbach saw immediately compelled him to invite the musician to a session at his Nashville studio where the Key’s leader produced Bombino’s breakthrough recording, “Nomad,” (adding subtle Nashville touches like pedal steel guitar to Bombino’s shredding African riffs) released this week internationally.

Shaun Gladwell gets a firsthand lesson in the art of war…

Australian experimental film director and Supertouch buddy SHAUN GLADWELL has just returned from a tour in Afghanistan as an official “War Artist” drawing inspiration for a new body of work from the action on the front lines. Of particular interest to Gladwell were the experiences of the individual fighters, whose emotional states informed his experience: “I wasn’t interested in photographing sensitive material, in terms of the technology or weapons,” he informed THE ART NEWSPAPER. “My interest was really the experience of the soldier as a thinking and feeling subject. I’m interested in how bodies move through space and the capacity of bodies to perform in certain situations. Particularly how it relates to landscape. These are issues I’m always interested in. That informed the way I was dealing with that experience in Afghanistan. But I didn’t try and direct anything.”

SHAUN GLADWELL ON LIFE IN AFGHANISTAN
The Australian artist’s three-week sojourn with troops will form basis of new work

SYDNEY. Shaun Gladwell, the Australian multimedia artist who represented his country at the 2009 Venice Biennale, and who has just returned from being an official war artist in Afghan istan, told The Art Newspaper that his experiences were “inspirational” and will inform his next body of work.

Gladwell was speaking on his return from Oruzgan province, where he lived and worked for three weeks alongside Aus tralian soldiers in October 2009. He says he will spend the next six months in his Sydney studio, working to “digest” his experiences while in the field. “I’m cherishing [the trip], and starting to analyse what’s taken place at this particular time,” he said.

Before settling back into his studio to work with the raw photo graphs and moving images he shot in Afghanistan, Gladwell returned to Venice to pack up his Biennale work—a video series titled MADDESTMAXIMVS—Planet & Stars Sequence, 2009, set partly in the Australian outback. Gladwell said it had been a long-held ambition to undertake a tour of duty with Australian fighting forces, stemming from the stories his father had told him about being a soldier in the Vietnam War.
