It is all a pet dance, this social existence, this series of prescribed and from time to time poetic movements that we will have to find out to navigate. Whether its origins are in Israel, France, Russia, New York, or Berlin, the Damaged Fingaz Crew (BFC) tells us that the complexity of present-day conversation all comes down to ‘Dog Sniff Pet dog.’ It could be a reference to the contortions of connections on social media or just the convoluted machinations of the so-referred to as ‘art planet.’ Even now, you get a obvious plan about their sarcasm and opinions with their new mural for the façade of the City Nation Museum (UN) that accompanies the opening of the most recent exhibition.
Often referencing the visual language of comic books, poster graphics, mid-century advertising, and hand-animated new music films, the Haifa-based crew brings a fresh neo-primitivism to their stinging social critique as it bends throughout the community-experiencing walls of City Country Museum.
Ideal for the graffiti writers and road artists whose work this museum champions, the painter Henri Matisse was also regarded for breaking the guidelines of harmony and order properly about a century ago. They have not pointed to Matisse in their public remarks on this canine cavorting street canvas. Even now, contemporary artwork historians will promptly identify the tough contours, dazzling shade fills, and interactive organic movement as a probable reference to his study Dance (1) (at MoMa in New York) and completed painting Dance (at the Hermitage in Saint Petersburg).
We’re all familiar with these instinctive behaviors of canines that can be comical or uncomfortable to their owners. Still, science tells us that canine sniff just about every other’s butt with an olfactory system much extra intricate and superior than humans – and with a fantastic perception of purpose. The layers of scents detected give data about gender, reproductive status, temperament, health, and substantially a lot more. You may well try out to explain to participating stories and jokes at cocktails, supper get-togethers, and beer halls. Canine sniff butts.
Photographer Nika Kramer captured the action of Damaged Fingaz’s occasionally animated visceral dance on the wall as they mounted ‘Dog Sniff Dog.’
