By the way, sorry I've been rather sporadic about posting. I've been writing/producing/designing a play and the past few months (the last couple weeks in particular) have been hectic. The show kicked off a few days ago, so things should get back to normal soon. I have a wedding to attend this weekend, then I should get back to more or less daily posting.

It is so hard to summarize, but here it goes:

It's a one person show about a man doing a public presentation of an art piece made by his preteen daughter, who has recently died of leukemia. He's a personal property appraiser who studied art history, so he's launching an earnest critical defense of her artwork and, by association, child art in general. Of course, he can't escape his fatherly feelings, so there's this ongoing tension between the academic, the emotional, and the downright silly (since it is in fact a piece of art made by a child who never hesitated over indulging her whims).
The performance itself is something between an art lecture, a memorial, and a children's party - he's attempting to recreate a party she held in the hospital when she showed it off to her friends and family for the first time.
We're calling the piece Magnum Opus, but the full title is Magnum Opus: The Life and Work of Amelia Portendorfer, Age 7-13, Presented by her Father and Collaborator, Lawrence Portendorfer.

This involved not only writing the play (something I'm used to doing), but creating the art piece that he's showing off (something I'm not used to doing). That's mostly what's kept us so busy: since we have limited resources, we had to design and build it ourselves, and we also did all the promotional material and production management (I co-wrote it with a friend).
I made a promo video, which hints at the general vibe of the play without revealing many details:



We also have a website, which shows a couple of the things we made (lots of miniatures - the art piece is kind of a mix of a dollhouse and Joseph Cornell-style shadowboxes): https://www.andrewfarrier.com/magnum-opus

Josef Koudelka. Ireland. Croagh Patrick Pilgrimage. 1972.

.

This last batch of pictures (including the past few) is from Koudelka's book Exiles, which I own. It struck me as the European equivalent of Robert Frank's The Americans: an exile traveling through places he's never been, viewing them with a fresh and lucid gaze. While it lacks the political pointedness of Frank's work, both books are portraits of national (or continental) alienation shot through with wonder and loneliness and a sobering curiosity.

Josef Koudelka. France. Hauts-de-Seine. Parc de Sceaux. 1987.

.
Koudelka, from a brief intro to Exiles wrote:I once met a great guy, a Yugoslavian gypsy. We became friends. One day he told me, "Josef, you've traveled for so many years, never stopped; you've seen lots of people and countries, all sorts of places. Tell me which place is the best. Where would you like to stay?" I didn't say anything. Just as I was about to leave, he asked again. I didn't want to answer him, but he kept on insisting. Finally he said, "You know, I've figured it out! You don't want to answer because you still haven't found the best place. You travel because you're still trying to find it."
"My friend," I replied, "you've got it all wrong. I'm desperately trying not to find that place."
