BSA Special Feature: Fintan Magee / Nothing Make Sense Anymore
What a fantastic title! The narration of selective outtakes from the news, from the artist, from the atmospheric music – quickly take you here.
“I didn’t have to develop any grand themes or concepts around the work. I just knew I was going to paint a plant every day,” say street artist/muralist/painter Fintan Magee as he describes the structure he put in place of the unstructured life that Covid foisted upon him. “It kind of became almost a daily meditation.”
“Too much chaos this year to string any common narrative,” he says. “Or maybe chaos is the narrative.”

Aufstieg (Rise) by Eginhartz
From Austria, Eginhartz gives us Aufstieg, a video performance meant as an ironic comment on the psychological interplay between the rapacious development of drones and the stubborn attitude of brutalist architecture.
Here’s the artists attempt “to contrast the massive aesthetic of a brutalist residential block with a poetic gesture. The coexistence of nature and ruins is broken here by the action of a protagonist.”
