There’s no escape.
The big pricks are out.
They’ll fuck everything in sight.
Watch your back.
Harold Pinter, February 2003
Get your fill of nail-art and video-art all at once at Vanity Projects in NYC. Read the full review on Crack In The Road:
Artists’ book lovers, fans of zines, periodicals and flip-books look no further. Printed Matter in New York has it all. I picked out some of my favourite books for Crack In The Road, read the full review here:
My next piece for Crack In The Road is out! I had already written a little about one of the Dia sites (The New York Earth Room) a couple a posts ago and this piece expands on that exploring a few more Dia sites in New York City as well as their vast space at Beacon, which houses world-class conceptual and minimalist art, about a 2-hour train ride upstate along the Hudson River.
The New York Earth Room, as the title denotes is a room in New York filled with earth. 127,300 kilos of moist earth fills 3,600 square feet of prime Soho real estate and since 1977 Walter De Maria’s Earth Room has intrigued viewers with its delicious smells and soil-based panorama. Occasionally fungi will sprout, or mud wrestlers will attempt a clandestine performance piece but otherwise it remains constant.
The keeper of the Earth Room, Bill Dillworth, muses that although he has been quietly watering and raking the earth for 25 years, the earth itself is perhaps infinitely old, proving that the piece is not only a perpetual fixture in New York City but a time capsule to Earth itself.
De Maria’s Earth Room is located at 141 Wooster Street, New York City.
This work was commissioned and is maintained by the Dia Art Foundation.
