A Message from Viggo at Perceval Press

A fan's notes:

As hoped for, the 2006 World Cup has brought us glimpses of inspired athleticism, sportsmanship, drama, passion, and international fraternity. As in past World Cup events, this one has also provided examples of unethical, boorish, and generally undignified behaviour from players, coaches, referees, and fans alike. In this year's edition of the championship, moments of individual artistry, genial team play, and overall good spirits have occasionally been overshadowed by controversial officiating, gamesmanship, sour grapes, second-guessing of coaching decisions, fans brawling, and unsubstantiated claims of preferential treatment being given to the established "big" teams. All of this, to some degree, appears to be part-and-parcel of the month-long event, and nothing greatly surprising or irrevocably unpleasant seems to have taken place yet. However, Henry A. Kissinger, in an abbreviated fan's overview of recent World Cup history ("World of Wonder", 12 June international edition of Newsweek) wrote a couple of sentences that so shockingly reeked of blood and hypocrisy as to be worth noting. Referring to Argentina's win against Holland in the 1978 final, he wrote:

"The Argentine victory produced a moment of respite from the near civil war conditions and brutal official repression racking Argentina. For 48 hours, Buenos Aires celebrated with such tumultuous abandon as to hide the bitterness of the national divisions."

Coming from a man who helped sow the seeds for "the near civil war conditions and brutal official repression racking Argentina" (not to mention Chile and other nations) in the 1970s, this is thoroughly shameless. Had he written the piece from jail, where he belongs, it would have been no less shameless. Enough said.

PCH Press in Malibu has a great review of the Four Tales From Perceval exhibit opening with some interesting percpectives.
Quote:
In the first section off the main gallery were the images of Mortensen. Black and white photographs of dark dreams or perceptions of life. In a rather humble statement from someone of such artistic stature and talent, there were only a few of Mortensen's works on display. But, the small room dedicated to his work dictated only a few images could be mounted well. Mortensen's photographs are humbling and a bar artists should hope to achieve themselves after thirty plus-years of photographing.

These pictures are taken from Mortensen's newest release Linger. A blurred image of a child running and playing stood out from the rest. The young boy was nearly a silhouette in the blur of grey and black. One almost wonders if the photo was of a father's empty nest syndrome with Mortensen's son graduating from high school this year. Or, maybe the picture just conveys a feeling of euphoria that is common to all humans at that age.
