Opening: Mike Shine's "Flotsam's Harvest" @ White Walls, SF

Juxtapoz // Monday, March 18, 2013
This past weekend in San Francisco, March 2013 cover artist (and often Juxtapoz @ Outside Lands collaborator) Mike Shine opened a performance/installation/exhibition at White Walls Gallery, Flotsam's Harvest. With full musical and dance accompaniment, surrounded by a massive body of work that describes and alludes to the great riddle and poem of one Dr Flotsam, the show was fully appreciated with some of Flotsam's hell brew. Or Jameson. Not sure. 

Mike Shine, March 2013

Vault // Tuesday, March 05, 2013
It’s 1970 and a Seven-year old boy happens upon a weird Russian clown at a carnival. Weird Clown grants Boy the life of his dreams. Boy signs the deal in blood. Weird Clown erases the bargain from Boy’s mind. But Weird Clown makes good on it; Boy unwittingly lives the dream life, as agreed. Fast forward forty years, we find that the boy is an artist who has become renowned for creating elaborate installations and performances about a mysterious Russian clown. The subconscious mind is a powerful thing, isn’t it? For the boy has subliminally recalled the carnival meeting, the bargain, even the clown’s correct name: Dr. Pyotr Mastolf Ilyas. Or “Flotsam,” for short.

Juxtapoz // Friday, February 22, 2013
Mike Shine has onced again passed us along a message from Dr Flotsam, annother riddle and proverb that we assume will come together for his Flotsam's Harvest exhibition in San Francisco on March 16. It reads, Thou need not worry of frost not weed, if thou does not first protect thy seed. Does that clear it up for you?
