A bit of beautiful punk rock for you this week…
It comes from Bruno HadJadj’s show Bye Bye CGBG, going on January 30 – February 28, 2012 at the Clic Gallery in NYC (255 Centre Street). It’s a gorgeous love song to the birth place of punk, and an eulogy and thank you thirty three years in the making. About the show…
On October 14th, 2006 people came from all other the world to say “Bye Bye” to CBGBs before the club shut its doors for good. Indoors, there were 48-hours of star-studded performances, but it was the emotionally-charged going-ons right outside the club’s doors that captivated multimedia artist Bruno Hadjadj. Using sketches, photography, and videos, he immortalized the anonymous throngs who queued up outside to pay their final respects.
“Bye Bye CBGB” is comprised of black and white prints and silver prints mounted on light boxes with the flickering electric lights animating the figures. The accompanying sketches are rendered with a mix of ink and pencils.
Love, love, LOVE! Speaking of love:
Question of the Week: – What is your most beloved makeup item in your collection, and if someone offered you $100 for it would you sell it to them?
Answer: Hmm, I’d have to say my MAC Stereo Rose Mineralize Skinfinish. Would I sell it? I’d have to say no. But throw in one of those Ramones light boxes shown above, and you could have my Lancome Erika F. eye shadow too!
