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
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.
Best youtube video's: Anything by Key and Peele. KEY AND PEELE IS MY SHIT!
Best music video: I’ve Seen Footage –Death Grips
Best music: Death Grips again. Their album ‘The Money Store’ was a definite game changer in 2013. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W43aQxzjyeM
Best website: I found that the original Space Jam promotional website was still up from 1996. http://www2.warnerbros.com/spacejam/movie/jam.htm
Best thing: Strandbeests
Best completely miscellaneous thing: Malt Chocolate Milkshakes.
Stupidest decision: Giving up cigarettes
Best flashback: Seeing the band Goblin who is responsible for the soundtracks to the majority of Dario Argento’s horror masterpieces, which include Suspiria.
Sad goodbyes: Breaking Bad. My Stolen Laptop
Greatest loss for everyone: No flying cars
