Brandon Stosuy and Kai Althoff MIRROR ME with Matteah Baim, Philip Best, Liturgy, Lionel Maunz and Peter Sotos through August 23rd, in three movements
DISPATCH is pleased to present Mirror Me, a collaborative exhibition in three movements organized by Brandon Stosuy and Kai Althoff. They will be joined by artist and musician Matteah Baim, artist and musician Philip Best, black metal band Liturgy, artist Lionel Maunz and writer and musician Peter Sotos.
They tell us Varg Vikernes is almost free. He killed someone in the early 1990s. At that time he believed in Satan.
And Brandon was relieved, and so was Kai, when they heard Varg was to be set free after all these years. While in prison, he taught so many about paganism. He is a paganist and a racist, therefore he will also not accept homosexuality. They are eagerly expecting his steps into a life of paganism, devoid of the limitation of being imprisoned.
Wynton Marsalis writes the most refined music, and he plays the trumpet. He did soundtracks for Spike Lee to multiply all New York summers known in the year of 1985. This is amongst a black community.
Brandon admires Varg’s music. Kai wants to follow Varg and wonders how it all goes together with Brandon wanting the country to be governed by Barack Obama, while also listening to Varg.
And Kai thinks Varg Vikernes would be a man he truly wanted to follow,denying his false conception to love a man in the W R O N G way, which will automatically lead to his self-perception as scum in the eye of Varg. Thus, if told to be executed, he would accept with no lament. Wynton Marsalis stands for culture and smartness. And self-confidence.
Wynton is what stands for the civilized in man. He is looked upon as the most degenerated form of a black man by some pagan, as this blackman holds the power of awareness and intellectualism.
This is questioned. Also by some semi-forceful act.
