Another barely emerging artist
I was in Hawaii and got a chance to see German video guy Bjorn Melhus. He gives the normal gender bending but this time, it's a universal. He grabs varied geographical personas in Eastern_Western_Park and shows how media adapts them. Eerrily, he plays every character he depicts, including the skinned-knee Japanese schoolgirl.
Blake Gopnik drops the barely emerging artist title again in today's review of British photographer Sarah Pickering. Last heard on the topic of DC artist Kathryn Cornelius. I'm waiting for him to go to the acronym, eg. "I consider myself a barely emerging BEA."
EDIT: JT heads up some conversation on the Gopnik affair.
