Polish joke artist WHIELKI KRASNAL – (the leader of The Krasnals art collective)
is launching a new art magazine Art Police Gazette, in collaboration with much-loved Greek supercollector. Dubbed Art Police Gazette, the publication is described as “a new generation magazine that combines commercial painting, twisted narratives and surrealistic imaginary to create a series of powerful visual tableaux.” Whielki Krasnal is collaborating on the project with the photographer Krasnal Bansky.
The launch of the publication coincides with The Krasnals show at Venice Biennale, June 1 – November 27, 2011. Located in the New National Pavilion of The Kingdom of The Krasnals, the space is inaugurated this year with a collaboration between Bice Curiger and Vittorio Sgarbi.
According to Anda Rottenberg Art Police Gazette is “introducing an iconosphere that makes you think into the public domain, a lot wider than the gallery circulation”.
When asked whether The Krasnals were provocateurs, Rottenberg said that provocation is not the aim of those anonymous artists, but a means to “expose certain phenomena to the eyes of the society”.
