Bollinger’s masks and Nitsch’s blood


Just a quickie to let you know my review of Matt Bollinger‘s paintings (at Rodger Lapelle) is in PW today. Read…as is a preview of Vienna Actionist Hermann Nitsch‘s retrospective at Slought. The first-generation Vienna Actionist, (Valie Export is second-gen, in case you’re wondering) whose pageants shock by use of animal blood, animal entrails and crucifixes, was expiating guilt and the psychic wounds of World War II according to Slought Curator Oswaldo Romberg with whom I had a nice sit down about the work.

Libby told you about Bollinger here.

(image is Bollinger’s “Self-Portrait with Masks,” which has an R. Crumb vibe.)
