Néle Azevedo :Ice Men Figuriines in Belfast, Ireland
brazilian artist néle azevedo ,presented as part of the belfast
festival at queen’s university in northern ireland.
the artwork is a collection of hundreds of carved ‘ice-men’, ‘Monumento Minimo’, perched readily side by side on the steps of custom house in the city of belfast, a carefully prepared intervention that slowly thawed under the heat of the day. the figures sit slouched, with legs dangling – an oddly charming set of characters
full of aloof charisma. the project was selected by the curator of the event as a tribute to titanic victims, the ephemeral artwork a powerful expression of the transitory nature of life, and death.
Hawkeye #19 was well worth the wait. I thought nothing would ever top Pizza Dog.
#19 is mostly in sign language with very little subtitles showing just how awesome the medium of comics can be.
“When we sleep, we dream. What we have gone through during the day gets reenacted in a form that is a very strange deformation of what had actually happened. Stoker is that kind of film. The beautiful fairy tale picture book that was read during the day becomes the material for such a dream. A fairy tale twisted into a bizarre, unfamiliar and frightful form. In other words, a nightmare one dreams after reading a fairy tale.” (x)

"I’ve never thought that I was going to be discovered. I just didn’t think that — I just thought I’d be somebody who was a hard worker. And for me things started to happen once I completely gave up the concept of being discovered, and I in essence discovered what I wanted to do. That would be my advice to young performers: Don’t want to be famous. Want to be legendary, but in many ways, fame is the industrial disease of creativity — it’s a sludgy byproduct of making things."
