PATRICK CREMIN - ALL ABOUT 2013

Most interesting photographers you came across for the first time: Taiyo Onorato & Nico Krebs. Collaborative photographers who explore the evolution of the camera.

Most interesting video artist you came across for the first time:  Adam Norton’s work is out of this world. His most recent project was The Mars Project 2013

Adam Norton, The Mars Project, 2013

Best exhibition: Theatre of the World. MONA, Hobart.
I travelled to Hobart earlier this year for the MONA FOMA festival. Apart from seeing some amazing live acts the gallery itself is everything I admire in art. It pushed theoretical and conceptual rationale aside, which freed up individual interpretation of the works themselves.


Best photo book: Hijacked 3. A photographic survey between Australia and The United Kingdom.

Best book: Point Omega. Don Dellilo.

Best television series': Black Mirror, House of Cards

Best movie: Holy Motors. The only film that simultaneously posed questions and answered questions that it never posed in the first place.
