Movies: "the Blurred boundaries of art-мира"
ARTinvestment.RU   22 мая 2020

A documentary about the art market in 2017, which refused to shoot Larry Gagosian

"Blurred boundaries of art-мира" (Original title: BlurredLines: InsidetheArtWorld)

Director: Barry Avrich
year: 2017
84 min.
film: GravitasVentures, Canada

the documentary film Scripts are of two types. In the first case, the Director (usually at the same time the author of the idea) prescribes drama to the smallest detail and faithfully follows the script, and what plans are unable to shoot in a documentary mode — shoots staged. In the second case, the Director keeps the overall image of the future movie in my head, and after it collects from interview history — in the end, the main creative process is included in installation. "The blurred boundaries of art-мира" referring to a documentary film of the second category: to predict what they will say about the art market, its players, was not possible. Do not forget the nursery rhyme about the Ogre and the Princess, which is "maybe it was the other way around?".

In the first frame of the picture — confused face stock brokers September 15, 2008, the day the stock market collapse due to the subprime mortgage crisis in the United States. And immediately, the joint — evening auction at Sotheby's in London 24 hours later presented 230 works of Damien Hirst. The contrast of ruin and luxury attracts attention and for a moment makes the viewer believe that now he will open your eyes to the truth. Expertly mounted a few catchy phrases figures of the art-рынка do not give attention to relax, and the viewer is immersed in what is happening on the screen completely. And then begins the Boxing match: some reprove the market (art-критики and columnists), others defend his florid phrases (dealers and collectors). Judging by the fact that the latter look more confident and much more presentable, I want to believe that.

the film is broken into logical subsections named "lots", — the course is reasonable and proper for understanding the market structure from scratch: artists, art-дилеры, collectors, auction houses and fairs received a separate description. Another thing is that from section to section don't change the interviewers: they say everything and in large quantities, sometimes making it difficult to put the pieces of the film in the overall picture. The history of patronage of the arts and the changing of the currents that would be interesting to develop in the scenario that is quickly replaced by modern picture and money. Word art-экономиста Donald Thompson, speaking admiringly about the art of Hirst, seem out of context to his interview: those who have read the book "a Stuffed shark for $12 million," remember dear canadian denounced the artist ten years earlier. The artist Taryn Simon, expressing outrage at the commercialization of her work, forgets to mention the recently signed contract with Gagosian gallery, and the new leader among young artists Rashid Johnson, denying collectors to sell their works, fails to mention that for him this work is done by Manuela Hauser and Iwan Wirth.

By the way, the Gagosian refused to shoot the picture — but supplied its creators unique archival photographs and three artists (in with Taryn Simon as characters in the film were added and sterling ruby, Jeff Koons). The rest of "Blurred lines of art-мира" fully correspond to its name: to learnwhat-то extremely difficult to fall in love with the art market — is very easy. Of practical use to professionals the picture can bring is that the set speaking of personalities, each of which is very useful to know in person in case of unexpected encounters in the corridors of various art-базелей. However, even after three years since the release of the tape, some of the people involved managed to change the working residence — say, Brett Gorvi from the head of the Department of contemporary art Christie's managed to become a gallery owner, creating a partnership with a dealer Dominique levy.

However, some quotes we found for you. They now use — is another question.

Lisa Denison,Director of Sotheby's in North and South America

If I thought about who buys my work, maybe everything would have ended in suicide.

Rashid Johnson, the artist

Glenn Lowry, Director of MoMA

At the end of "the Blurred boundaries of art-мира" lead us to where the film start, — mortgage crisis of 2008, thus closing the ring scenario. But Damien Hirst's we don't show. And for good reason. Perhaps the authors should have say about the end of the auction Sotheby's: £111 million for 218 items from 230 (95 % of lots sold). And the thing is that before thetrading in the Network got a video interview of the artist, in which he said that limits the market and will not return to create new works from the series that the auction was selected for the auction. For other viewers in the course of the artist and the auction house understanding the mechanics of art-рынка more than in the movie.
