Recently banned from youtube, music video for Reptile Youth’s track It’s Easy To Lose Yourself off their current self titled album directed by Peter Kaaden. “The video is the song. The song is the video. It’s not a complicated way around, it’s not the opposite and not an arty interpretation. You get what the song is about. Uncensored, honest & real. Everything is minimized to the necessaries in the song and in the video” Peter Kaaden.

Roundish and shiny, black porcelain glops rest contentedly on the floor in a corner of Galeria Continua. Aptly titled “Oil Spils”, these glops tie in the ancient Chinese porcelain craft with the realities of dependence on fossil fuels for globalization. Oil dependency seeps into every aspect of our life, from food and transportation to entertainment and culture. With its need to consume natural resources at almost all levels of production, art is no exception. Ai Wei Wei’s exhibition was on view at Galeria Continua in San Gimignano and ended on February 16.
