''Now Everybody (for W. R. Fassbinder) I''


A rather intriguing title for the artwork by Robert Longo on display at the CCB.

Oh, I like how you combined the two art forms (I'm assuming the statue and print are separate?), it has a very distressing tone to it which is captivating. Looks like an interesting show.

This is very unique and I like it.

Very stark and eye-catching piece. But as is usual when I encounter pieces like this, I want to read the exhibit notes so I can make sense of it. ;)

I hope you had a beautiful Easter Sunday, Jose!

I also like Fassbinder movies, Ciel! :-)

Nice shots JM! I really like the new look on your blog too.

Longo is exercising all arts... photos, sculptures. This is a perfect illustration of what he's able to do!

JM said...

Yes, Peter, this is from his 'Combines' period (1982/83).

Eleonora said...

Is the statue bronze? If so it's not only a beautiful piece, it's a miracle of physics and balance, there is no pedestal!!

Ciao,

VP said...

Not my kind of stuff, even for the period. Isn't he the husband of Barbara Sukowa, one of Fassbinder's favorite actresses?

JM said...

VP, I had no idea but did now a little search and you're right, they are married. Hence the association with Fassbinder.

This one had me fooled I thought it was an outdoors shot until you showed the full picture.

Oh this is so unique! I love the idea of a sculpture in front of another art installation!
