*VINNIE* | AN OBSERVATION UPON LIGHT.
CARMEN HUST | APRIL 2016
Media: The light, and talking about light I want to let you know that I’m currently at the service of Venus, both the goddess and the planet: in the evening, at night and even at dawn my office is the brightest star of your sky. I am waving you right now.
Some say that I am conceptual, someone else instead says i’m both pop and neo - dada but I'll tell you a story. When i was just a twinkle twinkle little star i took part in the Super Gattaca, a pandimensional equivalent of your grand tour (very fashionable at the time was stopping for a dangerous chemical peeling on LV - 426) that provided the blue planet as the penultimate stage. We had the opportunity to visit your greatest wonders, from the smallest to the most munificent, from the beautiful ruins of the old TV studios sets to Jane Fonda’s hilarious body - fit art but what impressed me the most was the incredible amount of light and beauty that sprang during the Great War: of course i am referring to the SEGA Genesis VS Super Famicom conflict. Oh, I still love that blue hedgehog ...
Your work is provoking a reflection within the individual in a sort of ironic way. What sort of
dialogue are you trying to establish between the spectator and the actual piece? ...self reflection?
No. My biggest dream is to see you first doubled up with laughter and then immediately run to kick some butt like irrationality, religions and neoliberalism... Just make you laugh is okay too.
Your visual language is sharp in colors, leaking a reference to Yves Klein (IKB). What are the ethics of
this color to you?
I did not know Yves Klein before this interview! I did not believe that the interviews could be entertaining and informative... what a nice color the IKB! Returning to the question, color is life, information, sign but above all thanks to science we all know that color is light: science is light on the truth and in some of your religions is professed that light, truth and divinity are linked: don’t you see how we constantly turn around the same concept?
Inanna, Ishtar, Aphrodite, Venus: in the beginning was the goddess of light, but because the light is beautiful she became the goddess of beauty, and as beauty is loved she became the goddess of love. The planet was benevolently also called Lucifer, bearer of light: benevolent entity until the arrival of those forgers opportunists of the christians. Get rid of them.
Exploring your works “de bello Saffico” and “christmas 2014: my friend mary claimed to be pregnant with jesus”, one is wondering between science and religion. What aspects do the two components have in your work?
De bello saffico contains an explicit literary reference rather than scientific or religious ones and it refers to
when I was just a twinkle twinkle little star and i asked MaMa NOVA how the hell did human women have
sex with other human women: de bello saffico was the answer and since then this tale is told to all the
children of Naboo.
As for my friend Mary, in that beautiful christmas time she was a demonstration of how absurd, though sometimes funny, consequences await us when we indulge in irrationality, when we trust unproven statements or just drink too much Martini.
This question penetrates the * VINNIE * thought, it is undeniable, but only the second mentioned work is
really relevant. In summary, if really there is a god, and if indeed we are created in his image and likeness, then he wants us to think in a scientific way: this is the way to eternal life. What is the one tool that has ever been useful to humanity to pull themselves out of their misery if not science? Think scientifically and science will give you light, beauty and love, forever. Be fooled by those who externalise unproven or unprovable state
ments and you’ll die, forever. If you were the devil, would you be so stupid to introduce yourself to the world with a crucifix that is upside down?
Devil’s here to fool ya. Or maybe God. Dunno, don’t have all the answers. Yet.
