ART - SPACE - UNIVERSES - SATELITTES
Mail to Ron Magliozzi, Curator MOMA on February 25, 2019
I will make this as short as I can.. it is another pamphlet concept. The universe and satellite universes.
The background here I want to explain a concept, a vision I am working on.. that to create a giant universe made up of different satellite universes. In a way like a family tree.. also researchable. A part of my work is I am one, my work is all one, my work is all me.. I am an artist all I make is art. And of course FTW.. as an outsider can only rely on one oneself.. tend to freak out the others.
The universe can be thought of like a family tree,,. only a forest of trees. Take the ACKER Awards as one example: the box, filled with pieces that reflect the work of the recipient, the booklet which names and bios.. the poster. All one. Then dissect let’s say tattoos – look up names – say R.O. Tyler – a photo and a bio. Tyler will be in the NY Tattoo history anthology – Tyler’s trail goes to Oldenburg, Judson Church John Cage.. see the Keith Patchel article – back to ACKERs to Keith bio & history – much of this can all be linked to my archive – photos, videos, ephemera, staying with tattoo can get to Jochen Auer – to Austria to Wildstyle and Tattoo Messe - was the president of Tattoo Society of NY to people I got to WS tour- Austria Germany – because of my NYC connections was able to facilitate the traveling show.. and made the Asian connection.. which was related to TSNY – to tattoo legalization & what a game changer that was – to the NYC International Tattoo Convention – to ACKERs to Jose “Cochise” Quiles to LES Street gang history to AKCERs to Tommy Houlihan – The Irish mob the Westies.. then the NO!art site & Dietmar Kirves - and on and on..
Is a very large conceptual art project.. .. FTW,., If those on the Outside do not save their one history then who will? … and eventually some of the ACKER recipients will be understood for the geniuses they were.. SUNPK aka Peter Kwaloff – Nelson Sullivan - Rev R.O. Tyler – Lionel Ziprin – deVita – Detmar Kirves – Boris Lurie - Spider Webb – and so on.. all buried deep in our cultural soil.. this stuff must be saved.. it is the old Van Gogh story.. the real bone crusher are not on the surface..
Who could believe? Maybe there is some oxygen left in this dying world of mine.. First - I have no idea how this came along.. but in terms of legitimacy - I was blessed with Ron.. and then believe it or not? From the infamous early 80’s ex-Punk rocker to Ponytail bandit on FBI list because he robbed 29 banks – after jail he became a tattoo artist.. later when I met him - I kind of mentored him on the subject of Keep The Faith The Struggle Never Ends.. and the spaces he can grow in and how what to expect in the kind of fight he would encounter in the creative world he was interested in entering – He connected me to a tattoo book publisher – I am getting the tattoo anthology published.. by a publisher.. I am not good at seeking out help from the legitimate world..
Anyway.. Yes, the Universes and the satellites are an important part of the whole conceptual art project. Creation is a very spiritual activity so is saving history. So is making connections. All becomes a part of the Conceptual Art project. All so much bigger than just me.
