Je suis Tuer, un personnage hérité de premiers jours de toiles. Adolescent virtuel à tête Kandinsky signaliste. Je bonde le cul. Yá trop de monde dans ce truc. Belle couleur, chaleur et diversité.

I am Kill, a character inherited from the first days of canvases. A virtual adolescent with the head of a signalising Kandinsky. I refuse the ass. There are too many people in this thing. Beautiful colour, warmth & diversity.

freedom, diversity & oppression


–  more about next days!

artist Peter Pollág is still working on the scaffold in the danubiana park area up to his Danube Wings: “some poets gave knowledge how many glass-pieces we already have fixed on that sculpture”, he amuses today as response to a visitors question about the amount of pieces on the surface,  among them sculptors Milan Lukacs, Daniel Bucur & Rudolf Pinter

ART’S BIRTHDAY is an annual event first proposed on January 17th 1963 by French Fluxus artist Robert Filliou. He suggested that 1,000,000 years ago “A man took a dry sponge and dropped it into a bucket full of water. Who that man was is not important. He is dead but art is alive.”

seit heute früh gibt es die online-ausgabe des Österreichisch-Europäischen magazins “PANNOrama – einblicke in das pannonische lebensgefühl” – per internet einzusehen / since today morning you have the chance to take a glance at the online-edition of the Austrian-European magazine “PANNOrama  – views into pannonian lifestyle”


when I entered with Milan Lukáč the scaffold  constructed around Peter Pollág´s sculptur Danube Wings at Danubiana Meulensteen Art Museum some weeks ago, one of Milan´s mosquitos (see some sculptural examples: here) was accompanying us to the top (see also article: on top of Danube Wings). the detail down of the photo above gives evidence to that fact:

today I read about Julius von Bismarck´s Image Fulgurator, a machine he invented to manipulate other´s photos. how terrific imaging to meet Pollág´s double-headed lion (see: worshipping true colours) on the top of his sculpture!
