CARDBOARD SCULPTURE BY DANIEL AGDAG
Daniel Agdag - Melbourne based artist and filmmaker, is presenting his first solo show (Opening Night: Friday October 26, 6-9pm OFF THE KERB GALLERY), “Sets for a Film I’ll Never Make”. All the images seen below are made from cardboard ~ boxboard to be precise. They are cut into manageable pieces using a surgical scalpel (blade Nº.11) and assembled intuitively by hand using a plain well known brand of wood glue, without detailed plans or drawings. The process is a kin to drawing in three dimensions with cardboard.
Good god dammit. This guy. I just can’t.
Claire rails against the gender politics of 18th-century Scotland the same way that she would’ve railed against the gender politics of 1950s Western culture. She’s a woman attempting to negotiate patriarchy and her own sexual and emotional desires — why, when described this way, does it sound like such a narrative innovation?
Maybe because it’s feminist one. [ x ]
We might be on to something awesome here.
When will they learn
This shit ain’t funny at all. I don’t know why these white dudes think it’s okay to walk up to people, blatantly insult them, then think nothing should happen. Then people look at the Black folks in the vids like THEY’RE wrong.
my brother told me about some white dudes who have a youtube channel and apparently tried to ‘prank’ black people by saying the word “neighbour” really fast so it would sound like “nigger” and it worked a couple of times but then one of them said it to a group of black guys and they beat him up and white boy was like “IT’S A PRANK! IT’S A PRANK I SAID NEIGHBOUR” and the black dude was like really? and beat him up anyways
I think I would even want myself to get beaten up if I tried to pull this kind of assholishness.
So, you know, I go to a gym. I started doing this last year, and I find it fascinating. I run on a rubber belt, I lift heavy things, I sweat enough to challenge the Ume river, and sometimes I notice that my body has changed. It moves my appearance a bit closer to the idea of male beauty that we all have imprinted in our minds, and I feel, well, stronger. So that’s all fine and good.
Then I went scrolling through Tumblr suggestions and found Gymaholic and watched a film clip called Female Fitness Motivation and now I hate people, gyms, dance music, film cameras, the gender binary, USA, haircuts, fashion and the Internet.
Although I do not hate any of those things as much as I hate noisy guys taking up space and spending all their time in the gym on their phones. Because seriously fuck those guys.
So, you know I used to fool around with Vue a few years ago – I, er, borrowed it from a friend – and it kept crashing but the idea never quite left its cozy corner in the back of my mind. To shape and build these places that I sometimes try to paint pictures of.
So I actually went and bought the damn thing. And it works. And it is so much fun. And weird. I did something to the rock here, not sure what happened, and some of the grass seems to give gravity the finger… and a fairly large image took eight hours to render… but on the whole, man, this is some exciting stuff.
