Untitled

Left Behind Or My Wife Is Made Of Salt

is a project by vydavy sindikat through which we seek our own opportunities for change.

In creating this work we are inspired by three quotes:

 

“At some point films have to stop being films, being stories, and have to begin to come alive, so that people will ask themselves: What about me and my life?”

Rainer Werner Fassbinder

 

” It is a progressivism in which it is no longer a matter of leaving in order to get there safe and sound any more so much as of getting out in order to clear the terrain for future ‘twilight of places’.”

Paul Virilio

 

“But his wife looked back from behind him, and she became a pillar of salt.”

Genesis 19:26

 

We invite you to share your story that relates to the above concept on different levels.

Through the course of the project cout outs reminicent of the shape of the human body will be left in various locations. A QR Code will be attached to each cut out. The code will lead to your story.

Teach your daughter to survive in a rush hour

is a visual diary and performance project.

Once we became parents our perception of the world shifted and new things became the focus of our attention. Things are not made easy for parents and children in the city. The rules of a rush hour apply to both big and small. What does it look like to take your daughter through the rush hour?

Prison Walk

Video from dumbo art festival

Vincent Van Gogh ‘La ronde des prisonniers’, (1890). Painted after an
engraving by Gustave Doré (1832–1883)

Prison Walk is an installation after a painting that was done after
an engraving. When Van Gogh had made his painting he had confirmed
with a statement made by Dore. This way the original statement made by
one artist got reinstated in the work of another artist. In case of
this installation we are reinstating the statement made by two great
artists with the means that are available to us today.

Dear Van Gogh Museum!

I am researching information about one of Van Goghs paintings.
The Prisoners Exercise or also known as Prisoners round or Vestibule of the Asylum. This painting is in the Pushkin Museum in Russia. I would like to find out the original name of the painting in french.
Please let me know if can assist me in any way with this issue.
Thank you
sincerely

[Quoted text hidden]


From Letter from Vincent van Gogh to Theo van Gogh
Cuesmes, July 1880.

“Every deep, genuine affection. Being friends, being brothers, loving, that is what opens the prison, with supreme power, by some magic force. Without these one stays dead. But whenever affection is revived, there life revives. Moreover, the prison is sometimes called prejudice, misunderstanding, fatal ignorance of one thing or another, suspicion, false modesty.http://www.webexhibits.org/vangogh/letter/8/133.htm

Еврейское Счастье/Jewish Luck

Jewish luck is Jewish luck. It is black or white. It comes and goes. But there is always something inside that stays forever.

commuters dreams

commuter's dreams

Featured artist show at Vox Populi, Philladelphia, PA

publication PDF

The show started with us sealing ourselves inside of the commuter’s dream. As our condition on the inside grew unbearable we had desided to come out of our dream into the world. We had torn through and exited the door of the car while everybody else stood clear.
