1. PREVIEW: The White Whale The White Wail -- by The Space We Make


    from Caitlin Scholl Added 36 0 0

    THE WHITE WHALE THE WHITE WAIL, The Space We Make's immersive adaptation of Melville's Moby Dick, is an ongoing work that has been performed in different settings, at different lengths, for varying audiences. The most recent iteration of the piece (excerpted above) has been recast in the hollow optimism and haunting decay of post-WWII America. Our whalers, existing in worlds of their private passions, are linked towards a slow demise and ascension through Ishmael's live broadcast of W-ISH RADIO, wherein our faithful narrator dissects and examines the mysterious life of whales and other forces sought, feared, and unseen. The Space We Make is actively seeking new spaces, both in New York City and beyond, in which to set it this evening-length, immersive work. Please contact directors Caitlin Scholl & Simon Thomas-Train at thespacewemakeproject@gmail.com for bookings.

              from marlapecampos Added 157 4 0

              Bartleby, the Scrivener is a short story by Herman Melville, written in the late nineteenth Century. BonesAndWounds takes as reference frame this short story showing up the warped character of our memories. Thus, this video aims to present Bartleby’s possible mental visions and feelings. Those, which might have been created and felt while he was working in a dead letters office. A supposition about, how this letters might have turned him into a pure nihilist and depressive person. A video graphic supposition on the thoughts of a character. Attempting to explain the reason of his harmful and deathly passivity.

                from All Fins On LLC Added 147 0 0

                Before World War II, experts dismissed sharks as a threat to servicemen. Then in 1942, Navy headquarters received reports about horrific attacks on castaways adrift from sunken ships and downed airplanes. Many of these reports proved to be true. Soon after the war, diving pioneers sought out sharks, expecting the worst because of the shark attack stories. Instead, they found an animal less to be feared than understood.

                • A conversation with Frank Goodman (2014)


                  from Vermeir & Heiremans Added 40 0 0

                  In a skype conversation between the artists Vermeir & Heiremans and Mr. Frank Goodman, a financial analyst (Goodman is one of the names under which Melville’s 'The Confidence Man, His Masquerade' operates), the artists address the symbiotic relation between art, real estate and high finance. In the conversation the creation of a new financial instrument that involves turning the idea of ‘the home as an artwork’ (the artists define their home as an art work) into a financial tool is discussed. Whilst speaking to bankers about the fictive nature of contemporary financial products, the artists were struck by the creativity of banking in seeking to dematerialise real estate into liquid asset form. Vermeir and Heiremans subsequently considered the possibility of creating an index (AHI–) as a financial vehicle that uses their art house as the underlying asset. An index is a statistical composite that measures changes in the economy or in a particular market, in this case the art- and real estate market. The potential value of the index would be in its ability to transform an opaque static product that is difficult to trade, like a house or art, into a transparent, virtual, ‘liquid’ investment that is highly accessible for investors. AHI- aims to critically assert art itself as a producer of value within the speculative construct of an index existing both within and beyond the art market. 'A conversation with Frank Goodman', was based on a performance commissioned for ‘Public Alchemy’, the 13th Istanbul Biennial’s public programme in 2013, co-curated by Fulya Erdemci and Andrea Phillips.
