Cathrine Raben Davidsen Interview: Paintings of Loss



www.youtube.com – – 2016-10-21 01:59:20

SUMMARY: The content provided is a jumbled collection of random words and phrases that do not make sense. It is unclear what the main idea or message is.

Danish painter Cathrine Raben Davidsen was only 13 years old when she suddenly lost her father. “I started making art because I lacked words. Art was my way of dealing with loss.” Meet an artist whose work is a meditation on loss, both personal and societal.

The loss of her parent was the catalyst for Raben Davidsen's entry into art. Unconsciously, “it was a way of connecting with my father,” says the artist. While she has moved away from her personal loss in her work, it remains a driving factor in a wider, global sense. Raben Davidsen's later work builds on images of victims of conflict, remediating media images of death and loss. “I do have an ability of channeling into the feeling of loss,” explains the artist. “But what interests me today isn't what happens when we die … It's a transformation of form and includes the difference between body and soul and form and non-form.”

Cathrine Raben Davidsen (b. 1972) is a Danish artist working primarily in painting, although her practice also includes drawing, ceramics, textile work and printmaking. She was partly educated in Florence, Italy and this classical training is clearly visible in her work, which combines art historical imagery with personal recollection to create fragile, dreamlike pieces. She has designed set and costumes for The Royal Danish Ballet and her work has been shown internationally, among others at SHOWstudio, London, UK and the Museum of Art and Design, New York.

Cathrine Raben Davidsen was interviewed by Kasper Bech Dyg at her studio in Copenhagen, Denmark in August 2016.

Episode 209: The Disgraced Hero & Fugitive, Mario Centobie



www.youtube.com – – 2024-03-01 11:11:14

SUMMARY: The content discusses the case of officer Keith Turner's murder in 1998 and the subsequent manhunt for Mario Cobi, who was responsible for the crime. Mario escapes twice, causing a significant search effort and criticism of the jail's security measures. Both Mario and his accomplice Jeremy Granberry are eventually captured and convicted for their crimes. Mario is sentenced to death, and after unsuccessful appeals, he is executed in 2005. The content highlights the lack of remorse from Mario and the impact on the victims' families.

When Officer Keith Turner pulled over a car in Moody, Alabama on June 25, 1998, he thought it was a routine traffic stop. The 29-year-old husband and father had no idea that the men in the car were two escaped convicts, Mario Centobie and Jeremy Granberry. In the span of two days, the armed and dangerous fugitives had already attacked one officer and nearly killed another. As Officer Turner walked toward them, Mario stepped out of the vehicle. He reached through the window as if to retrieve his license, but instead he pulled out a gun and fired three times.

Cooking with Hugh Hayden | Louisiana Channel



www.youtube.com – – 2024-02-29 09:54:38

SUMMARY: The content discusses the artist's use of cooking and recipes as metaphors in their work, specifically in the creation of cast iron skillets. They explore their personal history and relationship to cookware, as well as the cultural and culinary significance of cast iron skillets in African origins of American cuisine. The artist also reflects on the concept of authenticity and loss of information in their work, as well as the use of different materials, such as copper and gold plating, to add meaning to the skillets. The artist emphasizes the importance of allowing viewers to interpret and connect with the artwork based on their own experiences.

”I think cooking as an act of making something is a metaphor for many aspects of life.”

Step into the kitchen with Brooklyn-based sculptor Hugh Hayden. In this , Hugh Hayden draws out the connection between cooking and creation and between American culinary tradition and the formation of modern America.

“If you think of America as a sort of stew of different cultures, Toni Morrison says it great that black people are that pot,” Hugh Hayden remarks, introducing the concept behind his body of work consisting of skillets with African masks cast into the metal.

“Most people in America, regardless of their ethnicity, are copies of a copy of something that came from somewhere else, mixed with something else. And so, I like this idea of making copies of these masks that had questionable levels of authenticity,” Hugh Hayden explains.

The African masks, some authentic and some not, are used as ready-mades, already existing objects whose meaning and histories Hugh Hayden expands on by turning them into something else. Some are seasoned in the oven with grapeseed oil; others are plated with copper or gold. Each finishing adds a different layer of meaning.

Back in the kitchen, Hugh Hayden takes a similar approach. Starting with a box of Jiffy brand cornbread mix, he has made his own spin on the recipe on the packaging of the American favourite.

Hugh Hayden's Cornbread Pudding recipe:

This spin on a cornbread recipe gets you the ideal texture, I think, neither too moist nor too dry. It also is my take on a traditional Thanksgiving stuffing with cranberry jelly. I think a metal pan works better than glass. And be sure to use Jiffy brand cornbread mix! You can adjust the amount of sugar to your desired sweetness. It's best when it has time to cool to room temperature or, even better, the next day.

1 stick of butter at room temperature
2 Tbsp sugar
1 cup sour cream
1 egg (beaten)
½ (14 1/2 ounce) can of creamed corn
1 (8 1/2 ounce) box Jiffy cornbread mix
½ (14 1/2 ounce) can whole kernel corn, drained
½ cup dried cranberry

1. Cream butter and sugar together.
2. Mix in sour cream and then egg.
3. Mix in cream corn.
4. Gradually sprinkle cornbread mix over corn and stir all together, but don't overdo it.
5. Fold in whole corn, then cranberries.
6. Pour in a buttered pan or oiled cast iron skillet.
7. Bake for 45-55 minutes at 350 degrees; crust edges should be golden brown when done.
8. Allow it to cool for at least 15 minutes. It's good warm or at room temperature!
9. Cut into SQUARES.

*This is the original recipe with cranberries. To make a cheddar-onion version, substitute the cranberries with 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese and ½ cup diced and caramelized onion and bacon if you like.

Hugh Hayden's works are included in several public collections – including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, NY; Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA), Los Angeles, CA; The Studio Museum in Harlem, New York, NY, USA; Institute of Contemporary Art Miami, Miami, FL, USA, and deCordova Sculpture Park and Museum, Lincoln, MA.

Hugh Hayden was interviewed by Nanna Rebekka in his studio in Brooklyn, New York, in May 2023. Watch our other interview with Hugh Hayden here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lPjUHzORQSg&t=1s

SUMMARY: In this episode of “Biscuits and Jam” with Sid Evans, country artist Britney Spencer discusses her new album, “My Stupid Life,” and her experiences in the music industry. She talks about her admiration for the Dixie Chicks and how they influenced her love for country music. Spencer also addresses the changing landscape of country music and the need for more diversity and representation.
