Papercutting

The art of cutting designs in paper has evolved from many different cultures around the world. Thomas Witte uses the technique of paper cutting to bring out new dimensions to his photographic images, eliminating noise to expose beautiful narrative and texture.

Best of Enemies is a documentary set in the context of the 1968 Republican and Democrat conventions, a time when America seemed to be falling apart. A series of broadcast debates between William F. Buckley and Gore Vidal, representing the right and left, rather than enlightening, they became highfalutin verbal brawls that made for great television.

In the 1960’s there was an expectation that if you were on television you were smart and had smart things to say. William F. Buckley and Gore Vidal did not disappoint. Though politically opposites, they were both independent minded original thinkers. Both intellectual wordsmiths with a loathing and disdain for the other, they filled the debates with slasher eloquence that made for exciting, captivating television.

These debates were pivotal to television’s evolution, angry verbal mudslinging is entertaining. This formula resonates loudly today with network television. What is different today, people hear only one side, an affirmation of their own myopic vision.

Oh, yeah: The face punch bit.

Apparently after Vidal Buckley was ready to punch anyone in the face?

Brian Jurgen
Totem Poles, Art Gallery of Ontario, Toronto

Totem Poles are sculptural monuments of the indigenous people of the Pacific Northwest coast of North America. Different types serve different purposes, both architectural and ceremonial. Some poles are carved to support main beams of a building, others as a memorial to honor a deceased person, still others are carved to shame and protest political grievances. A famous shame pole was carved to protest the 1989 Exxon Valdez oil spill environmental disaster.

The designs of totem poles usually feature symbols of human, animal and supernatural forms.

Canadian artist Brian Jurgen has created these three totem poles from golf bags to explore the tension between the complex social and political situations of the First Nations lands and people.

The sculptures have a whimsical appeal that speaks loudly to the seriousness of environmental concerns.

For those that celebrate the golf bag, this is for you.

Tim Lee
Untitled (James Osterberg, 1970), 2006
Barnicke Gallery, University of Toronto

The Flesh of the World is an exhibition of the works of twenty-four Canadian and international artists who use the body as a medium. The artists explore the unfixed and indeterminate nature of the human body.

Depicted in this large format photograph is the artist Tim Lee doing a back bend, reminiscent of the Fosbury Flop in high jump; using technology to push the limits of the body’s physical capabilities.

The title James Osterberg gives a hint to the connection the artist is trying portray. Osterberg, also known as rock star Iggy Pop, is famous for his wild stage antics as much as his music. Iggy invented the stage-dive, his stunts included rolling around in broken glass, smearing himself with peanut butter, exposing himself and vomiting on stage. The photograph pays homage to the idiosyncratic athleticism of Iggy who set the standard for Seventies punk and Nineties grunge.
