A while ago we revlogged ANIMAGIFAQTSI by Wreck & Salvage and someone was reminded by THIS WORK of Oliver Laric. Only a few days ago I a realized we must have met in Eindhoven at MU. Oliver Laric (1981, born in Innsbruck, Austria, lives in Berlin) is a wicked artist, working mainly with video and taking maximum advantage of the wonder called the Internet. He’s co-founder of the art blog VVORK and the collective NEEN, standing for: "Neenstars: a still undefined generation of visual artists. Some of them belong to the contemporary art world; others are software creators, web designers, and video game directors or animators."
Touch My Body is a conceptual miracle. Take Mariah Carey’s video, cut out every sound and image except for Maria and fill the rest with fluorescent green. Then publish it on YouTube and wait for the people to fill in the void. Insubordinate art for the masses, republished on his own site HERE. We curate a second chef-d’oeuvre by Laric: AIRCONDITION. You’ll love it.
