There Is No Such Thing as A Pretty Good Omelette
Buenos Tiempos International, http://buenostiemposinternational.com
25 April – 29 May, 2014

“We differ from a normative gay and lesbian agenda because we reject assimilationist politics that heterosexualize fags and dykes and queens etc. We want to be explicit in the declaration of our faggotry.” Thus explains Alberto García del Castillo, chief curator of the newly founded online platform Buenos Tiempos International. Describing itself as an online exhibition space for visual art, Buenos Tiempos, Int. engages socially and politically with queerness, difference and otherness through strategies such as the “exercise of wave-blowing-blow-jobbing”.
The inaugural online-exhibit is a video documentation of a performance by Brussels-based artist Danai Anesiadou titled There Is No Such Thing as A Pretty Good Omelette, originally staged at DRAF in 2011. Mixed references from popular culture are staged into an arguably camp performance by the artist as well as by in-action gallery assistants or “invisible helpers”, as she calls them. Buenos Tiempos, Int. presents a re-contextualisation/de-contextualisation of an existing work, such as Anesiadou’s performance documentation, and new ones made specifically for the website (an exciting list on its way yet not ready to be published).
Buenos Tiempos, Int. and its team are affiliated with external projects, such as the feminist art magazine Petunia for which they are preparing a fashion editorial on “power-transvestism”. In relation to the arts scene, they think of themselves as “enjoying a certain otherness proclamation of the art world”. The visual development of the website alludes to their endeavour to distance themselves from journalism or old-school curating while putting forward a hybrid and creative proposition.
