SUMMARY: The content describes various pictures the speaker took in Starbucks. They talk about how they gave different names for their orders and got cups with the names “Donald Judd.” They also mention a strange photo of a horse with elongated legs hanging from the ceiling. Other pictures include a waxwork cast of their hands being held by someone else's hand, a t-shirt from Canada, a drawing by Daniel Bryan, and a copy of their nose on a sculpture of themselves. The content ends by mentioning that the speaker took the pictures using their iPhone. Overall, the content discusses various odd and interesting photographs taken by the speaker.

British artist Jonathan Monk agreed to let us have a glimpse into his phone. Watch him as he shows us content ranging from photos of Starbucks cups with alternative names on them, to a of a slightly bigger copy of his nose.

“I did this little thing in Starbucks, because they always ask you your name and they write it unto the cup, and in one of them I said my name was Donald, and in another place I said my name was Judd. And then I had these two cups – Donald and Judd. I thought it was quite funny,” Monk humorously comments on one of the pictures from his camera roll.

Jonathan Monk (b. 1969) is a British conceptual artist, who lives and works in Berlin and Glasgow. His work has been shown at e.g. Palais de Tokyo and Musee d'Art Moderne in Paris, the Institute of Contemporary Art in London, the Whitney Biennial (2006) and the 50th and 53rd Venice Biennales. He is the recipient of the 2012 Prix du Quartier Des Bains, and his work is held in the collections of prominent venues such as Moderna Museet in Stockholm, SMK (National Gallery of Denmark) in Copenhagen, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York and the Tate Collection in London.

Artist Thao Nguyen Phan: Learning From Past Lives | Louisiana Channel

Published

SUMMARY: Thao Nguyen Phan, a Vietnamese visual artist, explores history, trauma, and human connection through her art, which blends poetry and beauty in traumatic contexts to offer optimism and alternative perspectives. Influenced by her Buddhist upbringing, she emphasizes equality and respect in her work, focusing on mundane moments that hold historical significance. Trained in lacquer painting, Phan now works with various materials and is inspired by fiction, history, and oral traditions. Her projects, such as those addressing the 1945 Vietnamese famine, employ moving images to convey time circularly, embracing the transformative nature of art to foster understanding and compassion.

Thao Nguyen Phan looks to the past to understand the present. Intertwining myth and reality, fact and folklore, she revives the untold stories of Vietnam's turbulent past.

“I'm interested in how history and reality are written and perceived,” she states as she sits down to unveil some of the layers of her practice.

In her delicate watercolor paintings, silk works, and installations, Phan invites audiences to reconsider how concepts like history and reality are created. By turning to forgotten oral histories and changing the perspective from which we perceive historical events, Phan seeks to challenge how conventional history is written. “Even something extremely mundane, like the life of an animal or the spirit of a tree, could have the same weight and importance as a major historical event,” she explains.

Phan's artistic approach is rooted in her upbringing in a Buddhist family, which also permeates her relationship with time. She notes, “The way I perceive time in the Asian context is more circular. Like tides going up and down.” One way in which Phan challenges Western notions of linear time is through her moving image works:

“For example, in the video piece Becoming Alluvium, I try to manifest my understanding of time through a series of reincarnations. Reincarnations in a literal way, in which the characters in the film transform and reincarnate into different lives. So basically, if I add another life, the story can be expanded to an infinite point.”

Thao Nguyen Phan (b. 1987) lives and works in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. Originally trained in lacquer painting, Phan's works span multiple disciplines, including artist moving images, which she studied under American video artist Joan Jonas as a 2016-2017 Rolex Protégée. In 2019, Phan was shortlisted for the Hugo Boss Asia Art Award, and in 2018 she was granted the Han Nefkens Foundation-LOOP Barcelona Video Art Production Award, in collaboration with Fundació Joan Miró. Phan has exhibited in solo and group exhibitions worldwide, including Pirelli HangarBicocca, Milan; Kunsthal Charlottenborg, Copenhagen; Tate St Ives, Cornwall; and The 59th International Art Exhibition of La Biennale di Venezia, The Milk of Dreams.

Thao Nguyen Phan was interviewed by Nanna Rebekka in Phan's solo exhibition Reincarnations of Shadows at Kunsthal Charlottenborg, Copenhagen, Denmark.

Episode 219: The Kidnapping of Carrie Lawson, Part 2

Published

on

www.youtube.com – – 2024-06-17 09:57:45

SUMMARY: Southern Fried True Crime covers inappropriate cases for young listeners and uses explicit language. The latest episode recaps the kidnapping of Carrie Lawson on September 11, 1991, in Jasper, Alabama. Earl and Carrie Lawson were tricked by a phony nurse caller, leading to Carrie's abduction by Jerry Bland. Bland and his accomplice, Karen McPherson, botched the ransom exchange. Despite extensive FBI efforts and searches, Carrie was never found. Bland committed suicide without revealing her location, and Karen was sentenced to life in prison. The case remains unresolved, with Carrie's family continuing to seek closure.

In the dark morning hours of September 11th 1991, in the small town of Jasper Alabama, a couple named Earl and Carrie Lawson were awoken by a fake emergency phone call that lured them out of the house. A masked man was waiting in their carport. Earl was bound with duct tape and the assailant forced Carrie into their SUV and sped off into the darkness. Carrie had been kidnapped for ransom. It seemed like something you only saw in movies. In the last episode, I told you all about the parade of mistakes the FBI made in this case. Now we're getting into the repercussions of those mistakes, and even more bad decisions…as Carrie Lawson's life hung in the balance.

Episode 218: The Kidnapping of Carrie Lawson

SUMMARY: Southern Fraud True Crime warns listeners about explicit content. The explores cases like Carrie Lawson's kidnapping in Jasper, Alabama— a close-knit community with a population around 14,000. Carrie, from a wealthy and philanthropic family, married Earl Lawson, also from an esteemed local family, in 1990. In September 1991, the couple was deceived into leaving their home, whereupon Carrie was abducted. Despite a ransom payment and extensive FBI efforts, which included tracking, failed ransom drops, and a corrupted wire-tap, Carrie remained missing. Significant media attention and public searches ensued. The case, laden with FBI blunders, remains unresolved, turning Carrie Lawson into a symbol of Jasper's ongoing quest for justice.

In the wee hours of September 11, 1991, Earl and Carrie Lawson were awoken by an urgent phone call from a woman claiming to be a nurse who said Earl's father was hospitalized and might not make it through the night. The couple threw on clothes and rushed out the door, only to be stopped by a masked man as they were getting in their Ford Explorer. He bound Earl with duct tape, then forced 25 year-old Carrie into the Explorer and raced off into the darkness. Their families were shocked to discover this was a kidnapping for ransom. It seemed like something you only saw in movies…but it was very real and they were terrified for Carrie.
