Such a sucker for give-a-ways
The Bad Son is a 1998 photo-book by Harmony Korine, made up of pictures of Macaulay Culkin and his then-wife Rachel Miner. The pictures arose from the filming of the music video for Sonic Youth’s Sunday, which featured both Culkin and Miner. The pictures were exhibited at Korine’s solo exhibition at the Taka Ishii Gallery, Tokyo, in 1998, and the book was at the same time published by Taka Ishii Gallery as a companion piece in a limited edition of 1,000.

CONTEMPORARY ART DESCRIPTIONS OF NON-CONTEMPORARY ART THINGS
The Pile (Jackson Trainer, 2011, plastic hamper and various clothes [artists own])
The Pile is a keystone piece in Jackson Trainer’s artistic career. It employs many of the traits seen in his other works: sculptural elements, found objects, autobiographic connections and soiled socks. At its tallest it stands at nearly three feet, with a base of around two and a half feet. The structural backbone is a partially broken plastic hamper purchased in 2002 from Target. The real artistic weight of the piece lies in the stained sweatpants, t shirts and undergarments that fill and overflow from the hamper. The industrialized plastic hamper is juxtaposed by the organic flow of fabric led astray. The work not over overwhelms you visually, inviting you to peer into the discarded shells of fleeting adolescence, but attacks your nasal passage in a scent once compared to“a wet dog rolling around in old egg salad.”
The Pile was created over a span of a month during a particularly gruesome winter, where hygiene was sacrificed in the name of artistic creation. Trainer, who often notes his influences (famously citing Fred Durst as “one of the greats”), noted that he had been so deeply entrenched with the television show “The Wire” that he forgot to do laundry for three weeks and it “wasn’t a big deal, okay?” While Trainer speaks humbly about his work but it often elicits a more passionate response; his most outspoken critic is his own mother. Mrs. Julie Trainer cites The Pile as “a sad reminder of my failings as a parent,” and “a filthy embarrassment.” We often encourage visitors to approach The Pile with a pinched nose and open mind.
