Interview with AES + F, Serge Spitzer, David Eliott.
The series “Kiss of Art” is about a romance between art and technology, it is a tale of a human in love with a machine. Each episode attempts to capture the fleeting moment of fascination and genius present in the process of artistic exchange. The contemporary muse breaks free of conventions, her kiss of art does not discern between robot engineers, conceptual animators or graphic designers. Such ephemeral instances of warmth can now be communicated between a machine and a human by means of intuitive interfaces. The impulse of our touch can incite a hybrid plant to sing in response and the digital video technology admits us entry into the world of exciting and dangerous new ecologies. Kiss of Art is a series of contemporary art inspiration and creative brilliance.

AES + FRussian based photo-conceptualist group AES (made up of artists Tatyana Arzamasova, Lev Evzovitch, and Evgeny Svyatsky). The artist collective combines conceptual architecture, graphic arts, animation and photography to create fantasy worlds combining classical western mythology with contemporary global consumerism. Their acclaimed work “The Feast of Trimalchio” retells Petronius’s epic poem from the “Satyricon” for a twenty-first century audience. Using the imagery of high-fashion, cinema, lifestyle magazines, and luxury design, “The Feast of Trimalchio” is an Olympic-sized orgy of wealth and pleasure.
Serge SpitzerSerge Spitzer (born Romania 1951) is an American artist who uses sculpture, site-specific installations, works on paper, photography and video to question, explore and reflect on the shared reality everywhere. What ties his works together since the 1970s has been the challenging of assumptions. He gives a clue to this by calling his works ‘reality models’, alerting the viewer to the possibility that what we are looking at is perhaps an altered or amplified aspect of the world around us. Whether transforming architectural spaces by flooding them with hordes of unexpected, incongruous objects, or arranging a seemingly endless piece of thread into a tangle of lines as a ‘drawing’, Spitzer manages to gift his audience with a sense of wonder.
David EliottDavid Eliott (born UK 1949) was an artistic director of the 17th Biennale of Sydney. He is a cultural historian whose main interests concern contemporary art, Russian avant-garde and the visual cultures of central and Eastern Europe, Asia and the non-western world from the late nineteenth century. Beginning in the early 1980s, he formulated a series of pioneering exhibitions in one of the first programs to integrate non-western culture with contemporary art. He has published a large number of books, articles and catalogues on these subjects and has curated many exhibitions. He has also written extensively about the present-day role and function of museums and contemporary art.
