Directors: Yervant Gianikian, Angela Ricci Lucchi
This rarely screened 16mm experimental film is drawn from the 1910 archives of Luca Comerio, a pioneering Italian documentary filmmaker who photographed ‘exotic’ peoples from the North Pole to the Equator. Yervant Gianikian and Angela Ricci Lucchi rephotographed and hand-tinted Comerio’s spectacular footage of early Arctic whalers, Cossack-like soldiers riding on horseback, missionary schools, hunting and warfare in Africa, British India at teatime and Italian Alpine troops in World War I. They refashioned Comerio’s work in order to tease out the ideology written upon— and between—every image: in Gianikian’s words, “the violence of colonialism as it plays itself out in different situations and spheres.”
In 1998 Ben Jakober and Yannick Vu collaborated on an obvious remake of Marcel Duchamp’s Roue de Bicyclette, his first “readymade” object. Duchamp combined a bicycle wheel, a fork and a stool to create a machine which served no purpose, subverting accepted norms of art.
Inspired by the exhibition And Now the Good News, which focusing on the relationship between mass media and art, we prepared horoscope readings based on the chapters of the exhibition. Using the popular astrological language inspired by the effects of the movements of celestial bodies on people, these readings with references to the works in the exhibition make fictional future predictions inspired by the horoscope columns that we read in the newspapers with the desire to receive good news about our day.
