THIRD MIND GUGGENHEIM QUOTE: ELLEN PEARLMAN

The Third Mind—American Artists Contemplate Asia, 1860 – 1989
by Ellen Pearlman


Guggenheim Museum: January 30 – April 19, 2009

“What is the Sound of Two Blocks of Ice Melting?”

QUOTE FROM THE ARTICLE ABOVE:


"In 1983-1984 he also roped himself together with fellow artist Linda Montano for “Art/Life One Year Performance.” Her simple black and white film, “Mitchell’s Death, 1979,” about the accidental death of her ex-husband sent shivers up my spine. Montano’s face, riddled with grief and pierced by acupuncture needles chants in the style of the Heart Sutra in conjunction with details of Mitchell’s death. With its undeniable pathos it is a powerful reminder of the real mother of us all: impermanence.
