Untitled (Repressed Memory X Raf, Fall/Winter 2013-14)

Untitled (Repressed Memory X Raf FW2013-14), 2017, mylar satelloons, Magritte-ian floor, unidentified trauma, installation shot from Dior F/W2013-4, image: thesartorialist

Oh hi! What do you remember from 2013? More than me, I bet! Take Feb/March 2013, for example. I'm only now realizing I was so busy putting the finishing touches on "Exhibition Space," the satelloon show I was opening the next week at apexart, that I completely forgot-and obviously forgot to hype-my colabo with Raf Simons. The one where I stuffed a bunch of satelloons onto the runway of the Dior Fall/Winter show.

Fortunately The Sartorialist was there to document it, or I might never have remembered. To be honest, it's still all quite hazy. Was I even involved? Why would I have scooped my own show?

"Warhol also echoed in the silvered spheres suspended in the room (like the artist's iconic 'clouds')", said Vogue, shadily.

Does this mean Raf read my blog? Or that I'm friends with Sterling Ruby? Holy crap, Peter Marino soundbite? It's all a work now, but if this really happened to me, I can see why I've repressed the memory. (thanks, random Russian LJ)

Since 2001 here at greg.org, I've been blogging about the creative process—my own and those of people who interest me. That mostly involves filmmaking, art, writing, research, and the making thereof.

Many thanks to the Creative Capital | Warhol Foundation Arts Writers Program for supporting greg.org that time.
