Stacy Kranitz: Project Target Unknown

Stacy Kranitz

Stacy Kranitz focuses on the multidimensional character of Leni Riefenstahl, whose focused vision and murky set of morals greatly inspired Kranitz. These grey areas spoke to her desire to understand people beyond the constraints of good vs. evil.

During Pennsylvania’s yearly reenactments of the Battle of the Bulge, Kranitz portrays Leni Riefenstahl and behaves with soldiers as she would. Kranitz examines how the photograph documents and shapes history, since much of our conception of history is based on images. The 500 reenactors base the authenticity of their looks on images and, in particular, on Riefenstahl’s film Triumph of the Will. Kranitz focuses on how these historical images have been filtered through both the media and propaganda, becoming history as generations pass and memories fade. Photographs and film become the dominant forces that shape the public imagination.

The Nomi Song

I’m back with another fantastic documentary from my netflix archives. I give you The Nomi Song!

Looks like an alien, sings like a diva – Klaus Nomi was one of the 1980s’ most profoundly bizarre characters. He was a cult figure in the New Wave underground scene, a genuine counter tenor who sang pop music like opera and brought opera to club audiences and made them like it. He was a performer with a “look” so strong, that his first audiences went wild before he even opened his mouth. Klaus presented himself as “the perfect video star” yet his star burned out just before the mass explosion of MTV. On the verge of international fame as a singer, he became instead one of the first gay artists to die of AIDS. In the end, his recorded output consists of re-reissues, in various forms, of only two LP’s and a live album. For those who do know him, the reaction he provoked was so strong, that he is still unforgettable, even 20 years after his death. Even now, Klaus is somehow still winning new fans among those too young to have known him when he was alive. And a quick check of the Internet reveals that all his records are still being sold.

Li Yu & Liu Bo

 

It’s been three years since the competition, but we felt like the artists and the work that was contributed deserve to be featured. The event, Meeting Place FotoFest Beijing 2006, was a joint effort by FotoFest International and Hewlett Packard China. The competition was an attempt to create new opportunities and provide a platform for contemporary Chinese photographers, and their work, to become available to the global presence of the art. The four day event proved to be an incredible learning experience for hundreds of people who came together in Beijing.

The two artists in this post are of 36 photographers who were selected by international reviewers as “some of the most interesting artist/photographers they encountered at the Meeting Place Beijing”. To see the rest, click through their website, where all 36 artists have mini portfolios!

Untitled or The Boulevard, Bedroom 1 Corner 2, 5.11pm, Friday 1 June 2007

Zander Blom creates photographs derived from constructed paper installed throughout his London studio recalling Modernist abstraction as demonstrated by Mondrian and Schwitters. The crisp and jagged explosions of shape and color cascade along the nooks and crevices of corners and in-between spaces of ceiling and walls, creating disorienting movement and illusion.
