Bathosphere - artist portfolios among other things
link to bad at sports podcast
Bathos is the “sudden appearance of the commonplace in otherwise elevated matter or style”. It is a shift towards the fake, the trite and the patently insincere. Emotional life becomes unconvincing.
A bathosphere, then, might be a sphere of relations marked by a certain failed pathos and necessary hypocrisy, and might be used to describe some aspects of life or experience.
We set up to collect, on a single webpage, the portfolio sites of artists we have met, and whose work comes out of an engagement with the world, its movements and materials, its sudden plunges into stark banality. As well as some other links.
