Rabbit is Rich Bryan Dooley May 9th – June 15th, 2013 Rod Barton, London EC1 A subtle masc energy wafts through Bryan Dooley’s new solo show at Rod Barton. A kind of high-testosterone, enlightened bisexual vibe — where wooden prayer bead sashes, deconstructed from car seats, are worn by commercial imagery of luxury cars, log cabins, and avocados. QB: “180 timber right, green sight stack, haze. Rubbin taper!!! …………….SNAP!” Coach: “Shiit, keep it moot-able!”
Since Gaddafi’s infamous “Zenga Zenga” speech, a new trend has manifested across the Arab world. Remixing dictatorial speeches into satirical techno tracks and uploading them to Youtube. In this clip, we see Bashar Al Assad, Syria’s ruthless former dentist at the helm, stating “Ilal ammam! Naseer ilal ammam” (Go forth! We shall go forth!) Mashed with select clips of Gaddafi and Bashar chanting, “revolution” and against, “terrorists, traitors, villains, cads” and the like. A lot fo artful chopping created parts like Bahsar saying, “This is the End,” cutting back and forth to Gaddafi’s response, “For You!” The track ends with with the statement, “Until the regime collapses.” The popularity of these remixes is indicated further by the fact that they’re available to purchase in CD format in select stores. Amazing.
