Embed: "Dear Tracey"

"Dear Tracey"

"Tracey Emin, Daisy Bates Sexy dancing in Beverley Hills Hotel"

In November 7th 2007, some guy (well it looks like a man in his profile youtube pic anyway) posted the video “Tracey Emin, Daisy Bates Sexy dancing in Beverley Hills Hotel”, a rough video of “Famous British Artist Tracey Emin And Actress Daisy Bates Dancing like lunatics to the Killers at the Beverley Hills Hotel, LA”. Performer Miguel Bonneville saw it and decided to make a “video response” titled “Dear Tracey” on May 18th 2008 with his friend Sofia Arriscado. The song on both youtube videos is The Killers cover of “Shadowplay” by Joy Division (“Music From The Motion Picture Control”).

Try to press play at the same time on both videos - it is quite the experience!

“Dear Tracey” premieres a new category in this blog –

Putting Fear in Its Place by Alexandre Estrela

PUTTING FEAR IN ITS PLACE by Alexandre Estrela at Chiado 8 Arte Contemporânea till July 27th 2008. Didn't think any other photo was appropriate (and video installations are almost impossible to photograph at least with my camera...) - usually the name of the artist features and the title appears in a smaller font in the billboard announcing the exhibition - this time the artist preferred otherwise... (this photo is of the opening day May 23rd 2008).

It turns out it wasn't

Serralves May 10th 2008

Serralves April 14th 2008

In April, I thought this was going to be an installation by Erik van Lieshout at the Serralves Museum but came back a few weeks later, now after the opening of the exhibition, and it turns out it wasn't - they were just using this space to work. Couldn't find any traces of this structure in the exhibition. This post relates to THIS older post and check out THIS new one on "Institutional and Poetic Violence".

Well, as you can read in the comment below - it turns out IT WAS an installation by van Lieshout but the rain made it impossible... thanx VBD for the info Share
