It’s the last Friday before Christmas, you’re probably all drunk, but in case any of you are looking for a way to while away some time, here is a selection of the great work we’ve received recently at CR. First up is the latest spot from Apple, which sees the PC and Mac guys appearing in animated form.

Still from Beyond The Rave, directed by Matthias Hoene

Partizan director Matthias Hoene has completed his first feature, Beyond The Rave, which is also the first film to be produced by Hammer Films in 30 years. This trailer suggests it will be appropriately scary. The film will be premiered initially via 20 minute clips on MySpace before being released as a DVD and download.

Urs Fischer, You, 2007, installation at Gavin Brown’s Enterprise, New York

While Doris Salcedo’s artwork Shibboleth, otherwise known as “the crack”, has been regularly and perplexingly (how do they not see it coming?) injuring visitors to Tate Modern, artist Urs Fischer has gone several steps further in his latest exhibition at Gavin Brown’s Enterprise in New York. The show sees Fischer dig deep into the gallery floor, and, according to New York magazine’s art critic Jerry Saltz, “pulsates with erotic energy”. In case anyone is unaware of the risks involved with visiting, it also comes with the caveat, “The installation is physically dangerous and inherently involves the risk of serious injury or death”.

Still from Paulinho Caruso’s video for The Black Ghosts’ Some Way Through This

Cult-Geist, an offshoot of Saatchi & Saatchi that commissions art/film projects, has curated a series of short films by new young directors for the new album by The Black Ghosts. The eleven films will also be as visuals for live events and can be viewed online at www.theblackghosts/films.

Finally, in a nod towards the ubiquitous Best of… lists that litter the media at this time of year, here is my personal favourite video from the last twelve months: Michael Blieden’s spoof video for Kanye West’s Can’t Tell Me Nothin’, starring Bonnie Prince Billy and Zach Galifianakis.

Merry Christmas everybody…

He’s Lost in Music

Image of Andrey Bartenev’s disco installation, a version of which will be shown in Soho next week
Set to brighten up a no doubt chilly Monday morning in London’s Soho next week is a multi-coloured installation by Russian artist Andrey Bartenev, on display at the Riflemaker gallery. Bartenev’s piece, which will be viewable from the street, is a brightly coloured work called Disco-nexion and is based on the glass tunnel containing 50 LED spheres (with the words “connection lost” orbiting each one) that he showed last summer, as Russia’s representative at the 52nd Venice Biennale.
