Interview with Jonathan Meese at Rosa and Carlos de la Cruz Collection, Miami

Just one week before Art Basel Miami Beach, VernissageTV had the chance to have a look at the new exhibition space of the Rosa and Carlos de la Cruz Collection, located in the Design District in Miami. The new museum will open on Wednesday this week, and when we visited the space, Rosa and Carlos de la Cruz, their staff, and several of the artists were busy with installing the works and the final preparations for the opening.

One of the artists we met was Jonathan Meese, who was installing his work “Ich mach’ mein Ding – Love like Blood” in a distinct room, together with his gallerist Bruno Brunnet of Contemporary Fine Arts and his team. In this video, Jonathan Meese talks about his installation at the Rosa and Carlos de la Cruz Collection and why art will rule the world.

This is an excerpt of the interview, the full-length version is available after the jump. Also available: Interview with Rosa de la Cruz.

Jonathan Meese / Mama Johnny / Deichtorhallen Hamburg / part 3

“Whereas Meese is well-known for his extraordinary performances, the fusion of “grand” theatre and exhibition is new terrain for the exceptional multimedia artist. In invariably overextravagant scenery settings made out of pictures, texts, emblems, signs and symbols, objects, and word-creations that deal with every imaginable person of power, myth and historical greatness of mind, stars and starlets of pop-culture, or with his heros from fiction and film, Meese creates his own universe far removed from the norm. It is populated by Caligula, Stalin, Marquise de Sade, Richard Wagner, Balthus, Zardoz or Dr. No, to name but a few of the people and figures whom Meese gives new contexts of meaning to, and in doing so, intentionally goes beyond conventions and follows his own laws.” (PR Deichtorhallen). Opening reception “Mama Johnny” at Deichtorhallen, play “Kokain” and after show party, Hamburg, Germany, April 27, 2006. Part 3/3. PS: Hallo Polizei!
