RADIO // Armory ShowThe Armory Show & SCOPE New York 2010: Jiri Svestka, Marck and Fredy Hadorn
Originally aired 3/19/10
What do a well-dressed robotic crow on a limb and a naked woman dancing in the shadow of a silver Madonna have in common? They are both featured on today's broadcast, recorded live from the floor of 2010's Armory Show and SCOPE New York. Host Daniel Durning and artist Yuliya Lanina conduct their roaming interviews with dealers and artists at these behemoths of New York City art fairs. Listen as Durning and Lanina, no stranger to animatronics, discuss the talking, potentially psychic animatronic sculpture installation by Krištof Kintera, represented by Prague and Berlin's Jiri Svestka Gallery. Jiri Svestka, the owner of the gallery, provides Durning and Lanina with a brief tutorial on Kintera's work. They also interview video artist Marck and gamely attempt, despite language barriers, to describe his work. Fredy Hadorn, director of Basel's Licht Feld Gallery, which represents Marck, also chimes in to aid in the conversation's steadily uneasy bilingual progression. The program ends with an excerpt of Douglas Henderson's sound art piece Fadensonnen (Threadsuns). Check out Durning's Armory Show interview with Henderson here (30 minutes).
