Mercedes Sosa, Piedra y Camino



Piedra Y Camino


Del cerro vengo bajando,
Camino y piedra,
Traigo enredada en el alma, viday
Una tristeza...

Me acusas de no quererte.
No digas eso...
Tal vez no comprendas nunca, viday
Porque me alejo...

Es mi destino
Piedra y camino...
De un sueño lejano y bello, viday
Soy peregrino...

Por mas que la dicha busco,
Vivo penando...
Y cuando debo quedarme, viday
Me voy andando...

A veces soy como el rio:
Llego cantando...
Y sin que nadie lo sepa, viday
Me voy llorando...

Es mi destino,
Piedra y camino...
De un sueño lejano y bello, viday
Soy peregrino...

Devo dizer que nunca fui a um funeral de uma figura pública.



Hoje, vou despedir-me do Raul Solnado.

Vou despedir-me de um grande artista e de um grande cidadão.



Vou despedir-me também de um pouco de mim, de um pouco da minha infância.

«HOME - a film by Yann Arthus-Bertrand

We are living in exceptional times. Scientists tell us that we have 10 years to change the way we live, avert the depletion of natural resources and the catastrophic evolution of the Earth's climate.

The stakes are high for us and our children. Everyone should take part in the effort, and HOME has been conceived to take a message of mobilization out to every human being.

For this purpose, HOME needs to be free. A patron, the PPR Group, made this possible. EuropaCorp, the distributor, also pledged not to make any profit because Home is a non-profit film.

HOME has been made for you : share it! And act for the planet.

Yann Arthus-Bertrand

Enviaram-me um mail com o vídeo de um anúncio. Gostei tanto que quero partilhar convosco.

A história que se conta no anúncio é a de uma menina que queria aprender violino.
No fundo, a história tem a ver com a força, com a vontade. Com a Alma.

The Mysterious Mr. Hopper
(Documentary from the BBC's Imagine series - 2004, Season 3, Episode 1)

adenda:

A yko informa-nos que está patente a exposição Western Motel. Edward Hopper and Contemporary Art no KUNSTHALLE wien, até 15 de Fevereiro.

«Hopper’s pictures “deal with America not only on the surface, but dig deep into the American dream, radically examining this profoundly American dilemma of appearances and reality,” says the German film maker Wim Wenders, who refers to the great American painter Edward Hopper (1882–1967) in his work like many other artists from Alfred Hitchcock and David Hockney to Paul Auster and Peter Handke. Hardly any twentieth-century artist has succeeded in combining existential artistic claims with an aesthetics that describes everyday life, the individual moment, and the iconography of a place in such a poetical and impressive manner. Regardless of the art fashions of his day, Hopper developed a metarealism transforming the subjective perception of reality into something universal, reflecting the isolation of modern urban man, and exploring new forms of visual narration. The representation and manipulation of space, time, light, and shadow are the essential ingredients guaranteeing Hopper’s unbroken topicality in art. His reduced, psychologically charged, and meticulously constructed spaces unfold a lasting tension between the real and the fictitious, specific moments and duration, intimacy and anonymity, nature and civilization.
From Ed Ruscha’s stereotype condensations of the American myth and Rachel Whiteread’s and David Claerbout’s investigations of space-time coordinates to the homelessness of present-day existence as mirrored in Philip-Lorca diCorcia’s and Tim Eitel’s work, Hopper’s oeuvre finds its echo in the exhibition’s contemporary positions. Hopper’s works continue to describe the state of today’s world, his cinematographic view providing the starting point for narrative inventions and imaginations in space and time.

Participating artists:
Edward Hopper and David Claerbout, Dawn Clements, Jonas Dahlberg, Thomas Demand, Gustav Deutsch, Philip-Lorca diCorcia, Tim Eitel, Jim Jarmusch, Rachel Khedoori, Mark Lewis, Ed Ruscha, Markus Schinwald/Oleg Soulimenko, Jeff Wall, Rachel Whiteread

Curator: Gerald Matt, Director Kunsthalle Wien
Academic advisors: Carter Foster (curator, Whitney Museum of American Art, New York), Angela Stief (curator, Kunsthalle Wien), Ilse Lafer (assistant curator, Kunsthalle Wien), Lucas Gehrmann (independent curator)

Giorgio Morandi

2008-12-29T20:21:04.493+00:00

Giorgio Morandi, Still life, 1939, oil on canvasColecção do Museu de Arte Contemporânea da Universidade de São PauloGiorgio Morandi, Still life, 1930, oil on canvasGiorgio Morandi, Still Life, 1958, pencil on paperA exposição Giorgio Morandi 1890-1964 no Metropolitan Museum of Art, em New York, encerrou a 14 de Dezembro. A seguir, estará patente no MAMbo, Museo d'Arte Moderna di Bologna, de 22 de Janeiro a 13 de Abril de 2009.«On the occasion of the show (which makes its only other stop in Bologna next year), we talked to four artists who count Morandi as a model and inspiration.Robert Irwin"We put on a Morandi show at Ferus. We were trying to explain to some people what a so-called abstract painting was about, and what Abstract Expressionism was all about. The best example in the world was Giorgio Morandi. Morandi, in my opinion, was the only genuine European Abstract Expressionist.When you look at the work, you think he's painting bottles, little still-life paintings, but they weren't. Morandi came in the back door. It was almost a Zen activity. He painted the same bottles over and over and over, so it wasn't really about bottles anymore. If he was a still-life painter, he wouldn't have painted the same bottles over and over.They're about painting - the figure-ground relationship, structure and organization. Morandi's were paintings in the purest sense of the word. They were like a mantra, repeated over and over until it was divorced from words and became pure sounds."Vija Celmins"I tried not to mimic him, but I did a series of paintings of objects then. He helped me drop the color I was into and helped me explore light. I think he was an influence in a broader way, saying let's just go back to looking and letting your hand make decisions. That's basically what I did. I went back to painting without trying to project so much, to express so many opinions, my ideas about what great painting was.[Morandi's is] not really humble work, either. It's really ambitious work. It's about painting a world. The thing that amazed me most in his studio was how big the bottles were, and they were painted. He painted the bottles in various shades of gray, which catches all the light. The paintings were about a world that came from his interior, and he painted the reality to go with what he was already looking for and feeling and wanting to see.Later, when I learned to look at painting in a more complex way, I began to see how strange and controlled the still lifes were, how strange the space was, how alive the paint was. There was this exquisite balance between the extreme stillness and the movement in his paintings. My work is quite restrained. Maybe I recognized that holding back in Morandi's work and it helped me. It gave me the courage to try, to go in that direction instead of trying to be someone else, someone more exciting maybe."Dan McCleary"The first time I saw the paintings and the etchings, I couldn't believe them -- the stillness, the ability to create light with such a limited palette. The paintings looked very awkward and clumsy, like they were about to fall apart. They don't look bravura, but have a radiance and beauty.More than the paintings, the etchings have had a very direct influence on me. I have a book of Morandi etchings that's like my Bible. Wherever I go to do my printing, I bring the book with me. He believed that the line of the etching gave off light, because it's not like pen and ink, it's raised on the paper. It refracts light. (...)"Uta Barth"The history of Western art teaches us to interpret images, to search out and decipher symbolism, to find the narrative of what is being told. Morandi gives us none of that. He gives us silence, observation and [...]

Patton has earned critical praise for his diverse vocals, which touch on crooning, falsetto, death growls, rapping, chanting, mouth music, beatboxing and scatting, among other techniques; critic Greg Prato writes, "Patton could very well be one of the most versatile and talented singers in rock music."He often produces side projects in collaboration with other musicians (...) He co-founded Ipecac Recordings with Greg Werckman in 1999, and has run the label since. (...) Recently, Patton has worked with Björk and the beat boxer Rahzel. He is often featured on new releases, and is regarded as extremely hard working. (...) Patton is highly regarded in alternative musical circles, and seen as something of an idol in the eyes of modern alternative youth for his air of mystique, his constantly-changing musical sensibilities, his impressive vocal range, and his experimental nature.(...) When interviewed about his lyrical content with Faith No More, Patton responded, "I think that too many people think too much about my lyrics. I am more a person who works with the sound of a word than with its meaning. Often I just choose the words because of the rhythm not because of the meaning".»in http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mike_Patton___[...]

Hoje o céu está mais azul,
Eu sinto
Fecho os olhos, mesmo
assim
Eu sinto
O meu corpo estremecer
Não consigo adormecer


Ah, nem o tempo vai chegar
P'ra dizer o quanto eu sinto
Você longe de mim
É uma espécie de dor


Hoje o céu está mais azul
Eu sinto
Olho à volta mesmo assim
Eu sinto
Que este amor vai acabar
E a saudade vai voltar


Ah, nem o tempo vai chegar
P'ra dizer o quanto eu sinto
Você longe de mim
É uma espécie de dor


Já não sei o que esperar
Dessa vida fugidia
Não sei como explicar
Mas é mesmo assim o amor

Rosa Passos - Hoje, sexta-feira, no CCB
:

«ROSA PASSOS - ROMANCE - BRASILIAN LOVE SONGS

Rosa Passos, a grande senhora do Jazz e da Bossa Nova, também conhecida do público português pela sua interpretação do tema “Rosa”, incluído no álbum Cinema de Rodrigo Leão, traz ao CCB o primeiro da série de concertos que apresenta em Portugal durante o mês de Julho, a propósito do novo álbum Romance – Brasilian Love Songs.

4 Jul 2008 - 21:00

(...)

“Mais que uma cantora, Rosa Passos é uma grande compositora e excelente guitarrista, segundo o estilo do seu ídolo João Gilberto. A sua voz tem a limpidez da água e o seu fraseado é destituído de vibrato e ornamento, apenas colorido pela sonoridade da língua portuguesa. [...] Se esta não é a mais bela das vozes, é seguramente uma das mais notáveis e encantadoras.”

Gary Giddins, in New Yorker – Novembro de 2007
