There are many weird fetishes in this world, which we won’t go into, but for David Cronenberg crimes of the future, surgery is the new sex.

The dystopian hipster pic from the future featuring Viggo Mortensen and Léa Seydoux as the operation-obsessed performance art couple, and the former getting their organs tattooed for a club crowd show, scored a standing ovation standing six minutes after the credits rolled here at its Cannes Film Festival premiere.

Kristen Stewart plays a worker in an organ organization (yes) who is dazzled by Viggo’s Saul Tenser and falls for him, longing to be the new muse of her life and taking over from Caprice de Seydoux. See, it’s Caprice who sucks Saul’s open wounds, and she’s the chief architect of his insides (the loose argument is that all this anarchic surgery allows him to survive). It’s a slow burn with guts, lots of guts, starting with a little boy eating a plastic bathroom bucket, followed by his mother smothering him with a pillow. This pendulum is tied up later in the film.

But in all seriousness, after a pandemic that has chained us to streaming, such images look so much more fantastic on the big screen, shared with an audience in a large, damp auditorium.

David Cronenberg breaks silence on meaty return to Cannes with ‘Crimes of the Future’ – The Deadline Q&A

“I’m speechless, really – this is the first time I’ve seen this film on such a big screen,” Cronenberg said in a brief speech, “I’m very touched by your response. I hope you’re not kidding no, I hope you think so. I’m going to talk to you all and text you. Thank you very much. It’s wonderful for me to finally share the film with human beings. It really helps.

Stewart also reveled in the cheers of the crowd when Seydoux gave on-screen kisses.

Like the swirling ice creams of the Croisette, Cronenberg is a favorite here in Cannes, Future Crimes representing her sixth time at the festival; his previous film was eight years ago, Star maps. Of all his photos that have played here, only the notorious Accident in 1996, about another subculture with a passion for car accidents, walked away with a festival prize, namely the special jury prize. The critically acclaimed film starred James Spader and Holly Hunter. Also among Cronenberg’s accolades, Maps to the stars won Best Actress for Julianne Moore.

Deadline sat with other business reporters in the rafter seats, and only one person from our section chose to leave during the brutal body parts film — and never return. I hope they don’t have indigestion at dinner. During this time, the gentleman in front of me chose to stay put and take the first opportunity to take a nap.

The neon has Future Crimes in the United States and will open on June 3.

A big part of the problem, she says, is precisely those little single-use plastic bags of fish and food, and the death of the “refill system”: “When I was a kid, I used to go to a and I brought my bottle and [buy] maybe five or 10 [Philippine] weight of [cooking] oil. This was the traditional way in most cultures in the region.

“Everything changed when single-use sachets and plastic were introduced.”

But that’s not even the worst.

A global system

The world produces approximately 1.8 billion tons of waste each year. According to one report, if all of this was put on dump trucks, the line would circle the planet 24 times.

About a tenth of this waste enters the global waste trade. This essentially translates into wealthy countries sending their waste to economically less advanced countries, such as those in Southeast Asia.

About 12% of municipal waste generated in the United States is plastic, which equates to 32.4 million tons in 2018. Countries like the United States, Canada, and South Korea are among the leaders in the export of waste. In 2018, the United States transported an average of 429 large shipping containers of plastic waste every day.

Since China banned waste imports from 2017, much of this waste now ends up in Africa and Asia. Since these countries are often ill-equipped to deal with the influx – in Southeast Asia 75% of it is not recycled – this means that much of it ends up in waterways. or the oceans, either by direct discharge or simply by washing. there in the rain.

Loading

Greenpeace reported a 171% increase to nearly 2.25 million tonnes per year in plastic waste imported by Southeast Asian countries between 2016 and 2018.

To this swell of plastic waste, add a tsunami of plastic generated by COVID-19 measures in the world since the beginning of 2020. At the start of the epidemic, an NGO reported that there were already 1.5 billion surgical masks mainly plastic-based in the world. oceans of the world. By 2021, an additional 140 million test kits used, 144,000 syringes and packaging of 8 billion doses of vaccine have been generated as governments seek to stem the virus.

Pandemic measures have also put many Asian waste companies under quarantine, ensuring that while the plastic continues to pour in, facilities are not working and workers are stuck at home. Invariably waste is dumped, often illegally through obscure waste trafficking channels.

A new contract?

At the entrance to the fifth session of the United Nations Environment Assembly in Nairobi, Kenya, in February, stood an extraordinarily powerful sculpture by Canadian artist Benjamin von Wong: a tap, suspended in the sky , spits a flood of plastic waste on the grassy forecourt.

Maybe that had some effect, as the meeting ended with a major resolution to stop all plastic pollution by 2024.

Inger Andersen, executive director of the United Nations Environment Program (UNEP), said in a statement that the agreement between 175 member countries is “the most important environmental agreement since the Paris climate agreement”. .

Susan Gardner, Director of UNEP’s Ecosystems Division, said: “Countries have said, ‘We want to do something about plastics and it’s urgent. We’re so serious about it that we think what we need is something legally binding.

Gardner referred to the Minamata Convention on Mercury, which took about five years to launch in 2017. weather. This ambition, both in terms of substance and pace, is unprecedented. »

Lots of money behind

But even a strong UN agreement may not be enough.

The Great Pacific Garbage Patch has been tracked since the 1980s and measures over 1.55 million square kilometers, more than twice the size of Texas. In 2016, it was predicted that it would take until 2050 for plastic in the oceans to outweigh marine life. Now, it looks like we might get there this decade.

It is possible to imagine that nations could adhere to their own measures under a United Nations convention while pushing the problem of plastic waste offshore and into the oceans.

With this in mind, Aguilar notes that a regional process is underway through the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN). This led to the Bangkok Declaration, released in 2019.

But Aguilar says the deal “doesn’t look at the reduction, doesn’t look at the source. So that was a bit of a problem; more curative than preventive.

This source has a name. Or more precisely, it has a hundred names, those of the big companies responsible for making single-use plastic.

According to the Australian NGO Minderoo Foundation, around 60% of the total investment in these companies comes from just 20 major banks, such as Barclays, HSBC and Bank of America.

The organization reported in 2021 that “20 asset managers – led by US companies Vanguard Group, BlackRock and Capital Group – hold more than $300 billion worth of stock in the parent companies of producers of plastic polymers for use. unique.

“Of this amount, $10 billion is directly related to the production of single-use polymers.”

As Minderoo noted, Pennsylvania-based Vanguard Group is a major investor in this sector. The asset manager invests in several of the world’s top 10 plastics manufacturers.

In an emailed statement, a Vanguard spokesperson said, “Regardless of the industry, we expect companies to consider government policies, commitments and regulations in their strategies and plans. , especially when the policy… results in significant exposure.

A 2021 corporate report says the investor met with 734 companies across 29 industries through its stewardship program. Engagement categories are based on governance and material risk. There is no mention of plastic in the report even though four of the top 10 plastic producers (including the two US companies in this group, ExxonMobil and Dow) were interviewed.

Given that most of these companies are transnational conglomerates and given the categories of engagement listed by the asset manager, it seems unlikely that the issue of plastic pollution has entered any of these formal meetings. On this basis, while international and regional organizations seem to be getting more and more ambitious in reducing plastic pollution in the oceans and elsewhere, the corporate sector seems to be lagging behind.

UNEP’s Gardner notes that on current trends, we will double our already gigantic plastic footprint “in the next decade or so”: “It is largely how we use plastics that has created this problem.”

She adds that the solution “requires systemic change across the entire value chain.” This will almost certainly mean increasing pressure on plastics manufacturers in the years to come.

In one of the most anticipated auctions in art market history, part two of the collection of divorced New York real estate developers Harry and Linda Macklowe fetched $246.1 million at Sotheby’s on Monday evening in New York.

The night brought the much-vaunted total for the Macklowe Collection to $922.2 million, making it the most valuable sole proprietor sale ever at auction and surpassing the total achieved for the Rockefeller Collection sale at Christie’s. in 2018, which grossed $832 million against an estimated $500 million.

The guaranteed group of 30 works sold this week, 19 of which came up for sale with irrevocable offers, exceeded its estimated price of $167.6 million by more than $75 million. It was the second installment of the total 65 works from the Macklowes’ collections to be auctioned – in a court-ordered sale as part of the billionaire couple’s closely watched divorce proceedings – to be offered at the house’s headquarters in New York. The first sale held last November generated $676.1 million, with records broken for esteemed artists not known as major market darlings like Agnes Martin, Robert Irwin and Michael Heizer.

Sotheby’s auctioneer Oliver Barker led the hour-and-a-half sale, which took place in the house’s York Avenue auction room. Barker hosted a room nearly full of members of the public, including heavyweight dealers and advisers like David Nahmad, Mary Hoeveler and Wendy Fischer. The pressure on Monday night was less palpable compared to last year’s part of the sale, where bidders were vying for the keys to the post-war works that charged the room with energy.

“There is great value in the consistency of the works in the collection,” said New York art advisor Erica Samuels, who attended tonight’s auction in person. “This sale was very concrete. It was business. »

Among the works that fetched the highest price on Monday was an untitled dark red canvas by Mark Rothko from 1960 that sold for $48 million. Arriving at the sale with an irrevocable bid, he hammered in $41.5 million, speaking to a bidder on the phone with Grégoire Billaut, chair of the contemporary art department at Sotheby’s New York; his client triumphed over a Hong Kong bidder on the phone with Sotheby’s Asia President Patti Wong after several minutes. It was still a long way from surpassing Rothko’s current auction record of $86.8 million, set in 2012 when Orange, Red, Yellow (1961) sold at Christie’s.

A representative of Sotheby’s Japanese office won the tender for Andy Warhol’s Vanitas: skulls and self-portraits (1962), a self-portrait covered in camouflage patterns, fetched $16 million, just above its low estimate of $15 million. Elsewhere in the sale, Asian auctions were present, with Hong Kong buyers predominating for works by Cy Twombly, Sigmar Polke and Mark Grotjahn selling for between $5 million and $15 million.

The monumental canvas by Gerhard Richter from 1975 Seestück (Seascape), a blurry view of a gray ocean horizon, sold for $30.2 million with premium, hammering in at $26 million, just above its low estimate. He went to a bidder on the phone with Sotheby’s New York contemporary specialist David Galperin.

Another expensive item that came on sale with an irrevocable bid was Cy Twombly’s Synopsis of a battle (1968), one of the artist’s signature black canvases in the form of a blackboard with white doodles; it sold for $15.3 million. Only two bidders – one on the phone with London-based impressionist and modern art scholar Sam Valette, and the other with New York-based contemporary scholar Jackie Watcher – competed for the work. He hammered with the Valletta client at $13.5 million, above his low estimate of $12 million.

An untitled 1961 abstract canvas, painted in canary yellow, orange and light blue tones, by Willem de Kooning sold for $17.7 million, more than double the low estimate of $7 million . The winning bidder was on the phone with Sotheby’s New York private sales manager Courtney Kremers.

A bronze sculpture by Alberto Giacometti titled Diego on stele II (1968), a pedestal-like sculpture of a reclining standing figure inspired by the artist’s brother was among the post-war works that achieved moderate auctions. It sold for $8.9 million, against an estimate of $7 million, likely at the surety.

One of the evening’s most suspenseful auctions was for a work by Agnès Martin. The Long Underrated Artist’s White Striped Canvas The happiness of every morning (2001) made 4 times its low estimate of $2.5 million, finding a buyer over the phone with New York specialist Bame Fierro March for $9.9 million (with commission). He triumphed over a bidder in the room for this. That sum, however, is well below Martin’s auction record of $17.7 million, set in November when his monochrome Untitled #44 (1974) sold in the first part of the Macklowe sales. The underbidder won a second work by Martin that was offered, which sold for a hammer price of $5.3 million.

Another Warhol serigraph, a red and black canvas titled sickle and hammer from 1976 sold for $6.4 million, against an estimate of $4 million. At Sigmar Polke Plastic-Wannen (Plastic Tubs), featuring blue, yellow and pink plastic wares painted with clinical precision sold to a client of Sotheby’s Switzerland President Caroline Lange for $6.5 million with fees, well over above its low estimate of $3.5 million. A bronze sculpture by Giacometti, depicting the artist’s brother, Diego, sold for $8.6 million, exactly within its pre-sale estimate of $7-10 million.

Samuels, the New York art adviser, said the works sold, which represent five decades of collecting primarily led by Linda Macklowe, show a “collector’s imprimatur”, from which the next generation of patrons has something to learn.

She added, “These are the artists who represent the styles of art that attracted her: Pop, Abstract Expressionism and Minimalism – in essence, the art of her time.”

Never get bored with a solid pencil sharpener. A classic option is a manual option with an old-fashioned crank, once a staple of classrooms and art studios everywhere. While many people may opt for electric sharpeners for convenience, a hand crank sharpener is still a great choice if control is a priority. When you’re sharpening colored pencils, charcoals, and even pastels, feeling your professional tool dwindle can mean the difference between a pristine tip and a broken core. Plus, you won’t experience the harsh grind emitted by an electric sharpener. Below, we’ve found the best pencil sharpeners to keep your pencils in pristine condition without batteries or sockets.

ARTnews RECOMMENDS

Dahle professional pencil sharpener

We love how versatile it is: you can use it as a hand-held pencil sharpener, but it comes with a clamp if you want to clip it to your desk. A cool feature is its focus adjuster – use this mechanism to set your desired sharpness before you go. One thing to be aware of is that there is a small learning curve with this sharpener.

Plastic waste is a growing problem around the world. According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, an estimated 8 million metric tons of plastic entered the ocean in 2010. Jeannine Dostal took on this overwhelming problem and did what she does best. She made art. Art has always been part of Dostal’s life. Her passion started in elementary school and she eventually found herself as a fashion designer in the 80s and 90s. She currently focuses on working on canvas, which allows her talent to flow freely. “A lot of times it just happens on its own. I don’t even know what’s going to happen, which is the best part of it,” she said. One of his latest pieces had a mission from the start: to raise awareness about plastic. “I think it’s the most important piece of art I’ve ever created,” she said. “It’s inspired by the woman in gold… which is my favorite artist, Gustav Klimt,” Dostal added. Instead of gold, she’s dressed in what we can’t do without… plastic. It all started watching a documentary about plastics in the ocean. Instead of feeling helpless, she kept her plastic waste for eight weeks. “She’s a representation of our ocean. And what’s going on with them.” After such a short time, she realized she had more than enough. “I’m an avid recycler. I try to bring canvas bags everywhere I shop. And even though I was very aware of this plastic situation. Do my best to do what it had to. When I started saving the plastic, I realized it was piling up so quickly that I wasn’t aware. I was oblivious,” she told Bottle Caps, bags, beads, razors, gloves, etc. Everyday items that would otherwise have been discarded are now part of a powerful pursuit Even though this is a monumental creation for Dostal, she is ready to let it go . be in America. It could be overseas. and I’d like to donate 90% of the profits to cleaning up the oceans,” she said. Her vision is for a big business or corporation to buy it and display it in the lobby to remind them that they are making essential changes to the plastic waste problem.

Bottle caps, bags, beads, razors, gloves, etc. Everyday items that would otherwise have been discarded are now part of a powerful pursuit.

Although this is a monumental creation for Dostal, she is ready to let go.

“I would love to sell it to a company. It doesn’t have to be in America. It could be overseas. And I’d love to donate 90% of the profits to ocean cleanup,” she said. declared.

Her vision is for a big business or corporation to buy it and display it in the lobby as a reminder that she is making essential changes to the plastic waste problem.

It’s one of the old warhorses of Broadway theater and yet a play that never goes out of style.

“Arsenic and Old Lace” returns to the stage this weekend as the final show of the 2021-22 season for the Prime Stage Theater company.

The play officially opens at the New Hazlett Theater on the North Side on Saturday night at 8 p.m. and will run until May 15. (A preview of “Pay What You Can” is scheduled for Friday night.)

“Arsenic and Old Lace” is a dark comedy that tells the story of two elderly sisters named Brewster who poison lonely old men who come to their Brooklyn home looking for a place to live. It’s not as dark as it sounds, but rather a wild affair that The New York Times called “so funny none of us will ever forget” when it opened in 1941.

“It came out just when WWII looked like something America was going to have to get involved in, so it served as (a distraction) at the time and hopefully it can play a part. similar here 80 years later,” said director Liam Macik, a Pittsburgh native and graduate of Mt. Lebanon High School.

The play is famous for the character of Jonathan Brewster, a role originated by horror actor Boris Karloff who basically did makeup that made him look like he had bad plastic surgery. At the time, Karloff was best known for playing the monster in the original “Frankenstein” movie version.

In this production, Jonathan is played by local actor Alex Blair. Suzanne Ward and Lynne Franks play homicidal Brewster sisters Martha and Abby, and John Feightner is her brother Teddy, who thinks he’s “Teddy Roosevelt.”

“His stamina is remarkable,” Macik said. “The script is so good it’s almost bulletproof. You can see high school kids doing it, you can see it on Broadway. You can see the Hollywood point of view and it kills every time.

Because of this, Macik said he was careful before making any changes or updates to the script.

“I really didn’t want to reinvent the wheel with this because it’s such a beloved classic. When people come to see it, they expect certain things,” he said. period performance of goofy ’40s comedies, but you also have to mix that with the elements of gothic horror and the universal sense of monster movie horror that’s there.”

One thing that will be different from the original stage version, Macik said, is that there will only be one 15-minute intermission instead of two 10-minute intermissions.
