The things we do for art. Martin Rodgers of Wellington City Council presents Letting Space's Sophie Jerram with our first ever Certificate of Hygiene for Kim Paton's Free Store.
What a lovely picture,An arts administor smilingly handing a certificate of PERMISSION to an arts curator for a work of art/store.
Terrence Handscomb DID NOT gain permission of anyone named in his Auckland Art Gallery's "people I would or would not fuck to get ahead in the New Zealand art world" and that included city council staff, curators.
Martin Rodgers has rejected my "self portrait as a hot Land Lady" (and its replacement) for the council's "Complex creatives" city council tenants' (only) art exhibition (opening tomorrow) because he says the likeness of the self portrait appears to him to be that of City Housing's manager Vicki McLaren - who has also been offended by the works. Most people think they are funny. Go to the heart of the power relationship of tenant - LandLORD. Sorry, doff cap, kiss foot. As far as I am aware Terry Urbahn gained no permission to stalk and film Paula Savage on her way home - then exhibit the video in the City Art Gallery. PERMISSION, per se, becomes the subject.
Tenants here at Pukehinau flats have been covertly recorded on an I phone and when our committee has asked for explanation and return of photographs (not gained with PERMISSION) our letter has not even been repsonded to (nearly two months later).
More evidence, therefore, of council "othering" tenants, sensoring and controlling their art and acting very unevenhandedly. or as one blogger wrote "
"Creative solutions, such as your Hot Landlady, to social conundrums - such as the patronizing exhibition organized to throw a showcase sop to the 'underclass' - is a great way to go..."
Vicki McLaren has even gone to the trouble of sending a couple of uniformed Police to my home to investigate her concerns about my art, get an art history lesson... very, very funny... teaching cops about Duchamp's urinal, bearded Mona Lisa (She has a hot arse) and Vagina casts... art and the law hmmmmm.
So...Poor people's "nice" art versus high (permission - and funding no doubt - given) art Free store... for poor people? confused?
