Fukt 7 1/2 2009
Drawings from 14 international artists and essay.
This issue of FUKT has the irregular number of seven and a half, just like the mysterious floor in “Being John Malkovich”. In the movie Craig finds a secret passage to John Malkovich's head on the seventh and a half floor of a Manhattan office building. After entering the tiny door one can see the world through John Malkovich's eyes."....."Looking at someone’s drawing, be it in a show or in this magazine, is like having a tiny glimpse of the inside of their head. For a moment one can step into the swampy, dark grounds of the artist’s mind – a subterranean landscape, a mind map, a half-floor with unknown corridors. This half numbered issue opens onto a maze of paths - great ideas and weird reflections on art, politics and encounters. Drawing is seductive and at the same time unveiling, exposing the vulnerable line and link between brain and hand. Sometimes deliberate, planned and conceptual, and other times open and associative, drawing suggests a half-floor with a tiny opening to the vast infinity."
