Valstar Barbie

“During the course of Surrealist development, outside all forms of idealism, outside the opiates of religion, the marvelous comes to light within reality. It comes to light in dreams, obsessions, preoccupations, in sleep, fear, love, chance; in hallucinations, pretended disorders, follies, ghostly apparitions, escape mechanisms and evasions; in fancies, idle wanderings, poetry, the supernatural and the unusual; in empiricism, in superreality.”

"Art is not the most precious manifestation of life. Art has not the celestial and universal value that people like to attribute to it. Life is far more interesting", mused Sam Renseiw, paraphrasing Tzara, while capturing some pinko footage, complete with a delightful encounter with Claude Levêque's Valstar Barbie custodian. View the encounter on the 4th. floor, space16, at Le Mouvement des Images by clicking here, or step in the stiletto above.

Lovely stiletto ;-) Imagine a giant with one eye wearing it at her first pram bal.
Life(energy) is transformed into art expressions or sex or work or?

it all blends in fact.
it's a gaze on the state of things.

on sunday nov 5th, some of patalab's videos will be featured in london, at candid art trust by cogcollective >

will be interesting to hear the feed-back from the audience.
