Re: further question on the "rublinda" correspondance


Hmmm -I agree it's an altogether slower burning and
more complex piece of work than Josephs' which are
essentially very effective bits of agitprop, and I do
like Ivan's work a lot, but I can't see that the
substance is different - Ivan is using images of
people who have been detained by the US government
without any recourse to any sort of law, subjected to
humiliating and degrading treatment and what one could
call either pressure or torture.
Actually, despite Ivan's protestations, one of the
ways that the piece works for me is that it reminds of
the *fragility* of those human beings, those lives, in
the face of the might if the US state, and therefore
it does read to me to some extent like a "protest
piece" (and I'm glad Ivan has the confidence in his
work not to tell us what we should be thinking in
advance -this seems to me to be an admirable quality.)
I'm not being remotely disingenuous here when I say
I'm genuinely interested in what people think; after
the initial spat I think it's been a valuable
discussion and I entirely endorse Eryk's point that we
should think about and discuss critically the work we
see more.
(I would prefer however that we were as civil as
possible to our fellow artists outside of the polemic
itself.)

further question on the "rublinda" correspondance


I'm interested to know what people make then, of this
piece by Ivan Pope.
I'll lay my cards on the table -I think it's good, but
it seems to me a lot of the "linda/flowers" discussion
applies here. Does it? Is it different? How? What do
folk think?
