cambeck

Last year at the 56th Venice Biennale I saw this video at the Angolan Pavilion by Binelde Hyrcan called Cambeck. You see 4 boys seated in small holes dug out in the sand that resemble car seats. The boys face the Atlantic Ocean and talk to the taxi driver who uses a flip-flop as steering wheel. The boys talk about family abroad, the slums back home and the dream of global travel. The video also refers to the traffic jams that plagues the capital of Angola, Luanda, where you can spend up to 4 hours getting across the city.

elements of desire

In Venice I spotted my favourite blue combined with super brand icons that create a new time frame of life. Elements of Desire by Joseph Klibansky at Bonnet/Van der Sluis Gallery, Campo Santo Stefano.
