A little break after being busy but I’m hopefully back on a regular basis. This is Emily Keegin. She does some wonderful things with objects and a camera.

Neche Collection

12 May 2011

Veronica Corzo-Duchardt, founder of winterbureau here in Chicago, recently started a new side project called Neche Collection.

In her words…

Neche Collection visually documents materials collected by my grandfather Neche Eugenio Hadad. A Cuban Exile of Lebanese descent, accountant, collector and sometimes thief. I acquired many of his belongings. I created this project to be both an archive and a source of continued inspiration.

The project consists of a daily photo post from the collection and each week I create and print a limited edition screen print inspired by one or more of the objects feature in the collection that week.

Brice Chatenoud

I’m not entirely sure what to write about Brice Chatenoud. I think he’s from France, he is a photographer, and he mashes up his images by sometimes dismembering his subjects and/or adding sea creatures. Thanks for the email.

Mother Superior

New archival 280gsm giclée fiber-prints from Givan Lötz exploring and decoding the transcendental aesthetic.

All religions have an ecstatic component and all involve altering human consciousness to some extent by prayer, meditation, chanting, dancing, fasting etc. Although belief in a non-physical spiritual realm has diminished as part of our post-darwinian age it has not disappeared. Even those who have relinquished their belief are prone, if not compelled, to seek out substitutes. The altered states associated with Sex (orgasm), Drugs (intoxication), Madness (psychosis) are not only substitutes for religious experience but in some instances accomplices to these mystical practices.
