Paging Aakash…at the 2008 Bowie Ball

I spotted this at the Bowie Ball on Saturday and realized that Aakash Nihalani‘s taped forms have become a “style”…with the current speed of cultural absorption the avant-garde (if it exists anymore) has no chance.

Another image here.

UPDATE: I noticed that Aakash has started to capitalize on his own work as a “style” which is unfortunate and, as a result, risks undermining what I see as some of the more substantial ideas at work in his art. We’ll have to wait and see. ***NOTE: Aakash has yanked the pic, so it’s a dead link now. WTF!?!***
