The darkness of Frieze

Going through my camera after Frieze (a substitute for a forgotten pen), I noticed how the artworks I liked share in some serious darkness. This choice is aesthetic shouldn’t be a surprise.

Welles, real horror, and dream cinema 

Michelangelo Pistoletto – Two Less, One Black (2011)

Black abyss, eternal reflection, the unknowable

Gary Simmons – Through the Mist (Ghost…), 2012

Haunting, frenzy, through time
