Blue Screen Suki’s Yard is pleased to announce the exhibition of new work by L.C. von Sukmeister, one of the Netherlands their most critically acclaimed underground artists.
The title for this work is self-explanatory: originality rarely comes easily and if it does, it usually goes quite quickly. And there is death, love and loss, which at some point in our lives we all have to deal with. I’m constantly fighting the institutions of art today or contemporary art with the notion of love and passion. Love , sex, lust, appropriation ―in my new art video appropriation (NAVA) practices and Friendly Video Graffiti Project there is always some battle, some kind of conflict.
This work, Suffer Love LCIX @ 69 Square (2009) is essentially an artistic concept. Everything is simple and linear, straight to the point. The work is to coincide with the exhibition of my newest video works concerning the Friendly Video Graffiti Project part II in London (2009), made possible by Saatchi Gallery, Whitechapel Gallery, Chelsea College of Art and Design University of the Arts London and Parasol Unit Foundation for Contemporary Art.
There is a simplicity and modesty about this blue work, that has made me feel very happy and horny and complete, like I have gone a full circle and I’m back to what I really know, that is: continuing the video war!
L.C. von Sukmeister, June 2009
There can be few artists who reveal the intimate details of art exhibition spaces so powerfully and with such candour as L.C. von Sukmeister. His works which critically undermine presentation conventions are both intensely personal and resonantly universal and, as fellow artist Tracey Emin said recently:
Von Sukmeister’s need to be avant-garde, ground-breaking, institutionally critical, interventional and humorous supercedes all honesty in life and art. The crystalline presentation of video art in the most (supposedly) influential institutions of contemporary art (or art today as Lying Gillick would prefer) are what he wants to share with us online.
