L. A. should die vor Glück

Hi Jagoda, hi Felix,

It will take a bit more time for me to finish the text for ‚L.A. should die vor Glück‘. With our artists list in mind I already have a concrete idea. Micro Celebrities 2 was about the interior and the accumulation of things that find their place within a living space. The tonality of the existing furniture, the shelf, the tiles and the corners of your apartment was very similar to the shape of the individual works shown in Micro Celebrities 2; both sets of objects looked very Belgian. Similarly, the second Just Married hosting should have an L.A. look. What that means, we would find out then together.

In the works of the artists we talked about, you can often find these multiple breaks and phrases in well-known visual rhetoric, even if they come from very different directions. I imagine the overall picture collage-like and spread over everything, where glamor flashes through the formal or patina.

I really like the statement in Raymond Chandler’s novel „The Long Goodbye“ that nothing is as empty as an empty swimming pool. This is very related to minimalism in sculpture and painting. At the same time it is a great theme. Maybe things have to develop out of reduction and concentration, but they say something even as the material is reduced to almost nothing.

We’d be very happy if you would take part, and are looking forward to your response.

All the best, Marcel
