Posted by cathedralofshit on September 29, 2009

Welcome to Tuesday’s Top Five:

This week: Overrated Artists!

Here’s ours.

1) Karla Black
2) Seth Price
3) Ryan Gander
4) Tris Vonna-Michell
5) Katja Strunz
6) Tomma Abts

Wow. Now we’ve started we can’t stop. Top five becomes six. Ah well. We’ve also realised that list looks like a group show we’d probably go and see. Well, such is life, contradictions and hypocrisy.

Not applicable are artists who are a) just more successful than you, or b) just twats.

Berlin

Posted by cathedralofshit on September 26, 2009

Mini reviews sent from Berlin from the last two days openings:

Tomma Abts at Giti Nourbakhsch – Dramatic new direction. Erm… No. Not really.

Stephen G. Rhodes at Isabella Bortolozzi – “I Can’t Believe It’s Not Kelley, Lite!”

Cheyney Thompson at Daniel Buchholz – conceptudull.

Thea Djordjadze at Micky Schubert – our first visit to this tiny Kreuzberg gallery which managed to trump the Djordjadze show at Sprueth Magers aerodrome.

General Idea at Esther Schipper – best in show. Includes wonderfully hammy acting in their only film ‘God is My Gigolo’.
