Two pieces, extraordinary in both ambition & affect,
from filmmaker Helen Park.

It takes a little while, ‘it did for me’ then not only
does the quiet ecstacy of the thing kick in, but your
mouth drops open at how boldly and confidently this
world grows & blossoms from very simple & at first
apparently unpromising material.
Helen Park also maintains a rather good vlog.

MTAA in The Studio (2006, 33MB, 5:49 min.)

MTAA’s ’10 Pre-Rejected, Pre-Approved Performances’, was included in
Performa05. The work, selected by an online voting process is described as follows:
An installation is created with $100 worth of materials bought at the nearest
24-hour ATM-enabled deli or convienance store.
The materials are purchased at midnight.

In this video, Mica interviews MTAA in their studio &
gets the lowdown on this project and more.

‘Lenin’ – with Meir Pichhadze by Doron Golan

Lenin (2006, 21.3MB, 3:50 min.)

‘Once while walking, Leo Tolstoy spotted in the distance the figure of a
man squatting and gesturing strangely; a madman, he thought, but on
drawing nearer he was satisfied that the man was attending to necessary
work, sharpening a knife on a stone. Lenin was fond of citing this example.’
