Vonn Sumner: "I try to create characters that convey a feeling of strangeness and absurdity. I think of them as people from another world who have just dropped down into ours- destined to misunderstand what they find. They are alarmed to find themselves in a world where people are capable of that which they are capable. When presented with the choice they choose madness, weirdness, freedom. They choose to let go, to loose their mind."

Dan Perjovschi, who lives and works in Bucharest, has transformed the medium of drawing, using it to create an object, a performance, and an installation. In the last decade, Perjovschi has made his drawings spontaneously in museum spaces, allowing global and local affairs to inform the final result. For his first solo museum exhibition in the United States, the artist will draw witty and incisive political images, in response to current events, on one wall of The Donald B. and Catherine C. Marron Atrium. Perjovschi will draw on the wall during public hours, allowing visitors to observe the creation of the work. The project is accompanied by a pamphlet created by the artist.

Take a step. Come inside. It is not a home. Nor is it a futuristic vision of a home. It’s just a search into the meaning of the word “home”.Imagine you sit on the bank of the lake; it’s just stopped raining; a ray of light has touches your cheek; you close your eyes… falling asleep on the waterside is something you never forget… But when did you last fell asleep like this in your own bed?
In the things we designed we have looked for the feeling of safety, harmony, love, intimacy, fantasia. Maybe this vision is a bit confusing, only a sketch, but this is what we wanted it to be, so you could look at a home with some sort of distance. It’s important not to look at the Idealistic Home as at an ensemble of useful things, thing you sit on, you sleep on, you cook on, or things that you fill up with other things. The Idealistic Home is a story. It can be your story!
Everything that matters in life in inside of you – your feelings, your aspirations, your dreams… the objects around us should be just a background, a means of fulfilling your dreams…how does your ideal background look like?

It's all about an alternative version of the official history as known from the propaganda posters. The history evil is reduced to the evil source in man and to go further we should take into consideration his personal traumas, obsessions or subjective moods. In the so called “propaganda posters” appear little flash-backs from the childhood of the cases I studied. The details speak of the intimate thoughts, or traumas. Some “Educative” posters have slogans in accordance to the subjective experience of the dictators. This is the real history - individual traumas, kitsch, obsessions. The evil in the official history as we know it is so abstract. In fact it's all about the evil in all of us. And some of us got the power.
"For years, the DJ Kicks series on the K7 label represented genre defining at its finest — mixes from Thievery Corporation and Carl Craig still stand up to scrutiny. Lately, though, the label has shifted the concept into a more eclectic, almost promotional direction. Mixes from Annie and Fourtet did less to strengthen a sound than show off the tastes of their curators. Hot Chip, one of the hottest bands in the electronic dance world, continue in that direction. Instead of focusing on a particular beat, the five-man band show off their æsthetic, going from boutique-shop chic (“Soundhack”) to minimal techno to new-wave pop (Joe Jackson’s “Steppin’ Out”). Rarely are the transitions smoothly mixed, and the cheekiness of the project often gets in the way. Launching the mix with Positive K’s “Got a Man,” for example, is a bit too on the nose; dropping “Bizarre Love Triangle” just before Young Leek’s “Jiggle It” seems, well, bizarre. There’s a lot to like, however, and sometimes the drop in the mix seems just right, as from the dark dance of Black Devil Disco Club into Bavarian minimalist Dominik Eulberg."

"Jinyoung Shin’s work is bizarre: spindly Burton-like skeletons with strange flesh-mechanics and wide Manga eyes cavort on Steadman-esque horizons full of inky flourishes and bisecting lines. Motifs seemed to have double-jointed limbs, thick lidded eyes, butterflies, razor blades and blood."
