next week is art basel miami beach. the BIG event in this city for all art related things to happen.
i usually get nervous and start putting into perspective all facts regarding art fairs, commerce in art, curatorial issues, etc...
but the saaaaaad part is that, i still don´t have a good gallery, i will not have an important participation and one more year has passed.... but as I try to convince myself... ITS ONLY AN ART FAIR¡!¡

i like ny in june, how bout you?

11 years after we left,for the first time since we moved out, we traveled toghether - for 3 days- to the city were we met and lived. we loved it, we thought of coming back, pros and cons, tried to imagine how it would be, how we could work it out, etc...
I don´t know if I have the strenght to start all over again, and again.... its either staying in the US, probably moving to NY in some years from now or go back to Europe, and stay there. I get tired just of writing it!!
Here some pics of our lovely honeymoon.

I have not stopped and looked at "things" since a long while ago. I stopped looking at the small, lovely, magical details that surround us. The apparent triviality of a rose. The kitsch of a sunset. The little wonders of life. Stopped voluntarily as I stopped reading fiction. That was years ago. Too much reality after, slowly I´m making this huge effort to stop, look and find some petit things that are wonderful just to look at. Fiction is also attractive somehow. I think that this looking and finding is somewhat fictions that I find on my daily life. So welcome all these little things. Back.

I realized some days ago that this painting has been in my mind since I can remember. My father had these very fine art books that I somehow browsed in frequently. One day I scratched the paintings according to my taste, crossing the plates out with a giant X if i disliked or a check mark if it pleased me. This painting was so ambiguous. Why is she holding the other's lady nipple? Somehow disturbing. A few weeks ago, I remembered this and decided that i will make a tableaux vivant with this image, re-creating it and video & photographing it. I think it belongs to the line of thought that my work deals with the alter ego and the notion of beauty in contemporary society.

I can´t - even in my deepest thoughts and feelings - imagine how the families of the 30 something people killed -students mostly- feel now. You send your kids to school every morning, hoping you will see them at noon. You send your kids to college and they just get killed by a wacko nobody noticed, that had severe issues of violence, sickness, weirdess, etc.

Many ideas come to mind. It makes me think of how we sometimes prefer not to get involved on issues. Many of the teachers of this crazy guy did notice violence in his words and attitude. Why nothing was done? Did he pay his tuition promptly? Is that all that matters? I can´t help thinking on the interests institutions and people have. It is obviously a hard thing to point out extreme people, specially in a country where we are so aware of issues of discrimination and racism. But I want to believe, for the sake of the future, there has to be a way of protecting, controlling and scanning for possible major unstabile persons.

The reactions in tough situations are also so delicate. How did Virginia Tech not implement some safety measures to the rest of the students after the first two killings? Why did they wait two hours? How could he go to the TV channel meantime and send the video, etc.... and then come back. How come he could go back in...

How safe is safety? How is security an issue to be implemented in schools, universities etc???? How do we separate the security issue from the paranoia? .... How come things like this happen only in USA? Violence exists all around but these extreme sick murder cases - Columbine, etc... only happen here. How come there are still supporting the permisive laws for weapon buying? When is the government going to stop promoting violence by supporting violent wars, preaching about them? etc... I just have no words and too many questions.

My deepest prayers go to the families and the unfortunate that got killed.
We are definetly living in the era of fear.

ipod & walkman

when i was 14 i got a red sony walkman from my dad. it was a revelation. my kids got for their birthdays two ipods nano, from my dad as well. it is a new revelation. they both stayed in their pijamas listening to all the songs they asked for in their ipods.
A. danced until she fell asleep from exhaustion. Massimo doesn´t answer anymore. They are absort, discovering a life of their own... yet so small ...
i explain to M. that they are sooo lucky to have so many things at such an early stage in their lives. Im glad though they are not yet into the computer-playstation era. I will delay it as much as i can.
but music is a different story, it introspects your mind and makes you go places, oh the places you´ll go!!!!
