Found Objects 11/06/12

Another week on the news-and-views merry-go-round:

  • Frieze claims the art world has swallowed up the art itself and Dieter Roelstraete bemoans the amount of reference-heavy work that has come about as a result.
  • In the Guardian #1: Rachel Cooke visits Jenny Saville to conduct a wide ranging interview about the painter’s life and work.
  • In the Guardian #2: After its untimely end in April, Jeremy Millar teases out the humour in the career of Fishcli and Weiss. Rat and Bear clip is hilarious (thanks @RussellHillArt).
  • Mystical anarchism is the theme of a Simon Critchley piece in Adbusters. Recommended reading for all those practicing designer resistance (thanks @rpeckham).
  • A record breaking piece of prehistoric art has been found in a French cave, and so the oldest graphic mark of all time is now an, erm, vulva (on Hyperallergic).
  • From the deep past to the near future, Derek Brahney has been making Rothko paintings on his iPhone (also on Hyperallergic).
  • Der Spiegel writes up the career of artnet founder Hans Neuendorf with some dramatic flourishes that make being a multi millionaire seem reasonably exciting.
  • After the End gets in a last-minute review of the Hans-Peter Feldman show at Serpentine. The German artist has a light touch which delights.
  • Speaking of light touches, there can be few mechanisms as airy as this three dimensional representation of weather data on Prosthetic Knowledge. Includes footage.
  • Meanwhile from the land of the cute, photo of a mass transit vehicle for toddlers thanks to the Tokyo Times.
