Art 53: Gilded Feelings (Got No Rhythm)

Artipoeus visits Monica Bonvicini’s Guilt at Joseph Koenig Galerie in Berlin.  I can’t get past the chains of this piece. Chains evoke industry, and slavery. Imprisonment.  Being tied down – the old ball and chain. To be more precise, I can’t get past the language of the piece.  German, French, Italian and Spanish gender their nouns, and in all of those languages guilt, as a noun, is masculine. But “chain” is feminine.

 

Featuring “The Fall” by Rosie Bans, from her EP “Opia”. You can get it as a free download, as well as check out her debut album and her touring dates at rosiebans.com.

and

And Battle with Bass Original Mix, mixed by DJ BPM, and Battle with Bass RMX2, mixed by producer and Grime pioneer JT The Goon. Both tracks are from the Grime EP Battle with Bass Remixes, instigated by Irish DJ, DJ BPM.

The original track Battle With Bass was inspired by Claudia Wenger’s project “The Women Sing at Both Sides of the Zambezi” with vocal samples by Zimbabwean journalist and activist, Soneni Gwizi.  You can purchase the EP from bandcamp at djbpm-resonancefm.bandcamp.com and hear more of DJ BPM’s mixes and find her touring schedule at her website https://www.dj-bpm.co.uk/ or follow her on Soundcloud, Mixcloud and QBase FM
