  • Jeremiah the Innocent STATUE in Austin

    Hi, how are you? Fine, thanks… While reporting this week about the installation of a series of public art projects in the Red River Cultural District, a memory jogged loose of a different music-related and very Austin art project for the area that hasn’t come to pass yet. In 2014 and 2015 there were rumblings that James Moody, co-owner of the Mohawk nightclub and a partner in the Guerilla Suit marketing firm, was getting ready to announce a fundraising effort to pay for a statue of Jeremiah the Innocent, the alien-eyed frog creature made famous by his signature greeting – “Hi, how are you” – in a piece of graffiti just off the Drag by Austin musician Daniel Johnston. The statue was to have been a signifier of sorts for the then-just-formed Red River Cultural District, but the effort never materialized. A text message check-in with Moody on the status of Jeremiah produced the following; “The idea, which can still happen, is a partnership with Louis (Grachos) at The Contemporary, Daniel (Johnston), and the RRCD. The statue would be commissioned by a fund raise, housed at Laguna Gloria, and then begin the process of finding public or private land at/near the RRCD for all to enjoy. I’ve just been too dang busy to put the necessary time and muscle behind it, but it needs to happen and the contemporary is down.”

  • Sorry Entertainer - new book about Daniel (en français)

    La production artistique de Daniel Johnston de 1979 à 1986

    Sorry Entertainer

    Daniel Johnston est sans aucun doute l'une des figures pop les plus épatantes du XXe siècle et pourtant, les contours de son oeuvre prodigieuse et singulière restent encore aujourd'hui trop méconnus du public. Reconnu et acclamé par ses pairs et aînés que sont David Bowie, Tom Waits, Kurt Cobain, Eddie Vedder ou Matt Groening, l'artiste a très rapidement su bâtir un univers extrêmement codifié, doté de sa propre mythologie interne, de ses complexités inhérentes ainsi que d'une certaine récurrence dans les thèmes poétiques développés. Depuis, il s'y cloître inlassablement, tout en laissant la fenêtre ouverte à quiconque souhaiterait l'y rejoindre, le temps d'une chanson ou au détour d'un dessin. Musicien et plasticien, sa production artistique vorace et exaltée représente aujourd'hui une synthèse tout à fait remarquable de ce qu'est et de ce que fut l'homme au quotidien : tissant la toile de son cosmos à son image, les innombrables références convoquées n'ont de cesse de se relier entre elles, s'interpeller, s'interroger et se compléter. À travers ce premier ouvrage francophone consacré à cet artiste qui intrigue autant qu'il fascine, l'auteur tente de présenter les vingt-cinq premières années de sa vie captivante, avant de revenir sur les bases de son expression artistique et de soulever quelques préoccupations esthétiques et conceptuelles, afin d'offrir les clés de compréhension nécessaires à l'appréhension de ce répertoire luxuriant et impérieux.
