Midpointness

Its been a long day. I’ve been drawing texts on walls and falling under spells. (Thank you Kate Southworth, your work is beautiful and profound). 
 
I’m going to hand this one over to my friends who are critical in the development of the project and thinking.
 
Firstly to Andrew for this. I appreciate it enormously.  I hope you are OK.
 
” I am not sure if this is telepathy, but yesterday I was thinking of the project and wondering about how things will spring from theory to practice for the show, when stuff/material is involved.
 
I want to be in front of the Vermeer! Surely there is no better tonic?
 
So pleased the blog entries are proving so useful, they will be excellent for a spring board in UK as well as for the show at Lock Up. They should go in the publication.
 
I made chutney yesterday for the first time, while you are doing all this, I see both as achievements, though maybe a little of the hare and tortoise in terms of long term mindsets.
 
As my brain is not working properly, i have decided to pick a book at random off the shelf and open a page a random and find something on the page that links it to Midpointness, I offer this to you….
Nothing, this spume, Virgin Verse – The White care of canvas
“Like Nauman, Marcel Broodthaers can be mistaken for a conceptual artist, antagonistic to the medium. His works have mimicked installation, as they mount imitations of museum galleries holding showcases filled with precious objects. With its concern for the history and medium of painting, his little film L’analyse d’un tableau (1973-74) overturns this idea of Broodthaers as a conceptualist. Structured as the pages of a book, slowly turned, the film begins with a nineteenth-century seascape through which a schooner sails on turbulent waters. The pages thus recall a history of art, beginning with Manet’s marine paintings and moving towards the impressionist concern with sailing. Cutting to close-ups of the boat, this history makes a great leap forward into modernism when the weave of the white canvas fills the screen like a triumphant, abstract monochrome. We cannot miss this culmination, calling to mind Stéphane Mallarmé’s toast to the blank page as the support for poetry itself:
Salut
Nothing, this spume, virgin verse
Only to point to the cup;
So afar many a troupe
We navigate, O my diverse
Friends, me now on the poop
You the sumptuous prow to reap
Lightnings and seasons perverse;
A fine ivresse brings me
Fearless of its very pitch
To bear upright this salute
Solitude, reef, star
To whatever is worth
The white care of our canvas
(Le blanc souci de notre toile.)
this toast to a medium renders Marcel Broodthaers another knight.
Ok so a little disclaimer. of course I approached the book case and I did pick the book directly, but i would not say at random as in a second i am sure my mind rejected lots of books and went for this one, still the page was opened at random and in my mind (telepathy might be needed here) this correlates or offers/opens up something for Midpointness.
 
The book is Under Blue Cup by Rosalind Krauss, page 44-45 btw.
 
Keep up the great work Steve,
 
Andrew”
 
and then, many thanks to Julie Harboe for pointing me towards this,
http://eipcp.net/transversal/0806 and reminding me of this text by Irit Rogoff.
In “From Criticism to Critique to Criticality”
 
Rogoff writes,
 
‘Criticality’ as I perceive it is precisely in the operations of recognising the limitations of one’s thought for one does not learn something new until one unlearns something old, otherwise one is simply adding information rather than rethinking a structure. 
It seems to me that within the space of a relatively short period we have been able to move from criticism to critique to criticality – from finding fault, to examining the underlying assumptions that might allow something to appear as a convincing logic, to operating from an uncertain ground which while building on critique wants nevertheless to inhabit culture in a relation other than one of critical analysis; other than one of illuminating flaws, locating elisions, allocating blames.
(This text is the first section of “What is a Theorist?”, see http://kein.org/node/62You can find Irit Rogoff’s extended deliberations on criticality in her recent text: ‘Smuggling’ – An Embodied Criticality)
and finally tonight, from Leanne. On the subject of Midpointness.
