God from Nelson’s Head

Umělec magazine 2010/2

Ivan Mečl | The End of the Western Concept | en cs de ru

There is a hidden miracle in London. I’ve gone to sit under it and stare up at it for three years now. Must I tell you? In the Nelson’s Head pub at the end of Horatio Street there hangs a picture of the head of God. It cannot be said to be a portrait. It is a real planet of a head. A demiurge with a wisp of infinity in place of a mustache. Eyes like clefts in the mountain of Tora Bora.

Only women can take its picture. When I tried it, a black abyss was all that appeared in the frame.

The barman tells everybody that it is his great-gandfather. If he told the truth then too many people would come here. And he prefers the quiet, his neighbors, and his regulars. They might steal it from him anyway. Paintings go missing on him. Once, one of his paintings was stolen and in its place he hung a sign with a request for the return of the painting, no questions asked. The sign was immediately stolen.

When this comes out in print you’d better hide that painting buddy!

Translated from the Czech by Andrew Malcovsky.

Wicked / Interview with Jim Hollands Wicked / Interview with Jim Hollands
“A person must shake someone’s hand three times while gazing intently into their eyes. That’s the key to memorizing their name with certainty. It is in this way that I’ve remembered the names of 5,000 people who have been to the Horse Hospital,” Jim Hollands told me. Hollands is an experimental filmmaker, musician and curator. In his childhood, he suffered through tough social situations and…

Nick Land – An Experiment in Inhumanism Nick Land – An Experiment in Inhumanism
Nick Land was a British philosopher but is no longer, though he is not dead. The almost neurotic fervor with which he scratched at the scars of reality has seduced more than a few promising academics onto the path of art that offends in its originality. The texts that he has left behind are reliably revolting and boring, and impel us to castrate their categorization as “mere” literature.

S.d.Ch, Solitaires and Periphery Culture (a generation born around 1970)
Josef Jindrák
Who is S.d.Ch? A person of many interests, active in various fields—literature, theater—known for his comics and collages in the art field. A poet and playwright foremost. A loner by nature and determination, his work doesn’t meet the current trends. He always puts forth personal enunciation, although its inner structure can get very complicated. It’s pleasant that he is a normal person and a…

Aš menininkas — Aš save myliu Vincent van Gogh in one letter to his brother described a café as a place where one could easily go insane. The café in the Center for Contemporary Art (CAC) in Vilnius is such a place. Insider connoisseurs of the local scene consider it “very bohemian” and, indeed, in contrast to traditionally lackluster and overpriced eateries in museums, the atmosphere in the CAC…
