How upset am I that I’m not in London?  There are no words.

Not only is Tessa Farmer currently showing new work at Danielle Arnaud gallery in London (check out Wurzeltod‘s images here), but she has collaborated with none other than aural genius, Amon Tobin, in conjunction with his new album ISAM – Control over Nature.  Performances of this collaboration will be shown in London’s Crypt Gallery.

If that wasn’t enough to make me cry like a little girl, the Crypt Gallery just happens to reside in the Crypt of St Pancras Parish Church, which was designed and used for coffin burials from 1822.  Echoing stone walls, dust, ghosts, memories, found objects and found noises, detritus, bugs (alive and dead and manipulated), shadows…  And I’m not there…

Thus far, there don’t seem to be any plans to bring the performance to the US.  Cross your fingers.

The gorgeous images of Tessa’s work seen above were taken by Pelle Crepin for inclusion in a limited edition booklet that comes with an old fashioned CD of Amon’s bricolaged noise. Pelle’s shots finally show some of the details that make Tessa’s impossibly intricate and delicate.  There are few more on Amon’s website as well as all the new music.

I caved and downloaded mp3s of the album (I prefer higher quality sound files).  I’ve currently got this new noise up to eleven and I’m convulsing.  It’s that good.

Dan Ouellette‘s latest video, Here Comes the Rain, directed for JG Thirlwell of Foetus, has just been released.  It is quite apocalyptic and thus the perfect thing to view on the first day of the rapture.  Thirlwell has a great presence in this video as does his lovely kept friend.  Really, this is quite a beautiful work.

Dan is currently in post production mode with his short film Dreams from a Petrified Head.  If you missed my interview with Dan last year, check it out here.



Malfeasance… by Binnorie

Anag’s brand spankin’ new website was recently visited by the Malware Faery. This WordPress site is safe, but we’ve got to clean our code and convince Google to clear our name on the interwebs before we can get it going again. Sheesh.

Please be patient with us. We are dedicating more of our spiritual souls towards worshiping the techno goddess. Suggestions as to what sacrifices have worked for you in the past would be greatly appreciated. Hopefully she will forgive us our trespasses soon.

On that note, we are getting ready for a huge night of dark art with the opening of Buddy Nestor’s Angelic Possession. Opening reception only will include new video art by Josh Graham (A Storm of Light and Neurosis…plus check out his interview on Juxtapoz) and live painting with Katie Perdue, Nicole Boitos, Scott Cranmer. DJ Miz Margo will be spinning tunes.

All of these additional artists will be present on opening night only! Not to be missed!

DETAILS:

The White Rabbit
145 East Houston, between Forsyth and Eldridge

Friday, July 2 from 7-10pm

Buddy’s work will be on view through to the end of the month.  There is a growing online gallery here.
