Wednesday, day of uni trip to Liverpool for Liverpool Biennial - International Festival of Contemporary Art.
We've been asked to choose one piece of art we seen on that day and do short review about it.
I never seen so many good art works in one day. I've been in at least 5 or 6 galleries or rather exhibition places, some of works were exhibited on a street, big screen, garage or an old warehouse.
For me, the most interesting, exciting and inspiring thing I've seen was series of three, about an hour lenght videos made by USA artist Ryan Trecartin called "Trill-ogy Comp" from 2009. An hour long set of huge amount of absurdal short situations, nonsensical conversations of random teenagers wearing careless made make-up and making weird movements. Everything full of extreme video editing mixed with computer-made sounds and compeletely random simple animations. Whole videos looked very psychedelic and kitschy at the same time.
 The most interesting in "Trill-ogy Comp" is that when you start watching you know you don't like it, it can make you sick easily, but at the same time you can't stop looking at this, only because you know it's something you never seen in your whole life before.

Here is a link to one of the most extreme experiences in your life ;-D, enjoy!:
