Log 2 - Orientalism



Issue Two: View contents page

Always fresh, always good, LOG proves it's not afraid to go backwards to go forwards (the magazine is read from right to left in Oriental fashion).

The contents are a medley of writing and works by artists of Asian descent, and writing and works by artists who wish they were of Asian descent. Stand-outs are: an interview with the Sultan of Ocussi-Ambeno, homages to Keiji Haino (Nick Cain) and Rirkrit Tiravanija (Anna Sanderson), and a major discussion of the work of Daniel Malone by Gwyn Porter. The centrefold of a group of Auckland artists in Japanese SchoolGirl uniforms styled by Kirsty Cameron is a collectors' item.
