by Guy Forget on March 18, 2011 · 1 comment Forget in Ten Parts

Forget in Ten Parts is a ten-part weekly series by AFC's Curatorial Fellow, Guy Forget, focusing on the aesthetics of impermanence. This week Guy has put together a list of ten art works, illustrated.

1. “Any other art juxtaposed with it would curl up and die.” Hundreds of clippings of LiLo from an archive spanning several years. Art that makes your heart sing. Now on view at Zach Feuer.

Mark Flood, "The Edge of Fame", 2011, mixed media, dimensions variable. Installation view at Zach Feuer.


Martin Creed, "Work no. 915", 2008, boxes and magnets, 96 x 30 x 30 in. Installation view, NJ MoCA 2010.

Tony Feher, "New American Landscape Painting", 2005, dimensions variable. One of three site-specific temporary installations at the Chinati Foundation.

3. Above, an image from the abandoned horse stable, one component of a three-part 2005 installation at the Chinati Foundation in Marfa, TX. The three installations amounted to what is perhaps the most wondrous art I have ever seen. Link to a very good essay about it here.

4. Marie Osmond’s rendition of Hugo Ball‘s Karawane (1916), with didactic introduction. The clip is from the ’80s television series Ripley’s Believe it or Not

Pooneh Maghazehe, "Pioneer 1", "Pioneer 2", and "Pioneer Loaf" (working titles), 2009, Pioneer branded steaks and bologna, respectively. Installation view, New Haven, CT.


Tim Johnson, "Monument to the Wives of the Confederate War Dead," 2006, mixed media, dimensions variable.

6. “A work in foam. Let’s hope it lasts forever.”

Christopher Chiappa, "Speed Stick", 2008, cast Speed Stick, 12 x 16 in. Kate Werble Gallery.


8. Deer Fang.

Rachel Harrison placed some spray cans on a window sill, 2009.

9. Old news: Rachel Harrison‘s 2009 exhibition, Consider the Lobster, at The Hessel Museum of Art at Bard College was great. How assiduously I searched the world wide web for an image of the aerosol cans she had perched on the window sill.

Saint Lawrence Ice, installation view, February 12, 2011, Wolfe Island, Ontario.

10. Ben Schumacher recently curated a show that took place on a frozen river.
