Norman Mailer IS Harry Houdini

A rushed post tonight, as this internet cafe is about to close. This afternoon was a lovely one in downtown Oslo. Raining but fun. Went to a great contemporary art gallery whose name I can't recall, but it was something like Feargal Sharkey. Anyway, a great room had a screening and many astonishing artifacts from Matthew Barney's Cremaster 2. Did you know that Norman Mailer plays Harry Houdini, the supposed grandfather of Gary Gilmore, in Cremasters 2 and 5? It's true! The best thing was a one-eight-size rendition of the Mormon Tabernacle made of beeswax. Now I must go before they lock me in here!

Tomorrow is Dana's opening in Moss -- the opening of the Idea of North exhibition!

Over and out.
