Egypt: Success of a Summer Revolution!

Egyptian army ousts Mursi and scraps constitution

Abdel Fattah al-Sissi said in a televised address to the nation. [Al Arabiya]

days to topple President Morsi, his successor, and the country's first democratically 
elected president. [Al Arabiya]

here has expressed the willingness of millions of Egyptians.
The future will tell us how to call this event.

The World vs Monsanto on May 25, 2013

In Europe, #March Against Monsanto Is Latest Rejection of the GMO Giant. 
"Even while an official ban on GM crops is still absent in most of the E.U. member states, regions and municipalities have taken 
initiative to define themselves as GMO-free zones: in Belgium (entire Wallonia), Finland, Italy, Latvia, the Netherlands, Portugal, 
Romania, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden and the UK, regional GMO bans are widely in place."

"The World According to Monsanto" - a 2008 Marie-Monique Robin investigation.
Coproduction: ARTE France, Image et Compagnie, Thalia Productions, National Film Board of Canada, WDR.

"With operations in 46 countries, Monsanto has become the world leader in genetically modified organisms 
(GMOs), as well as one of the most controversial corporations in industrial history. Since its founding in 1901, 
the U.S. multinational has faced trial after trial due to the toxicity of its products. Today, it has reinvented itself 
as a "life sciences" company converted to the virtues of sustainable development. Calling on hitherto 
unpublished documents and first-hand accounts by victims, scientists and politicians, The World According to
Monsanto pieces together the story of an industrial giant that, thanks in part to lies, collusion with the American 
government, pressure tactics and attempted corruption, has become one of the world's leading seed 
manufacturers, spreading GM crops worldwide with no real monitoring of their effects on nature or human

Viswanadhan featured at Pascaline Mulliez Gallery

The Pascaline Mulliez Gallery 
is pleased to present 
a selection of works 
by the artist 
Velu Viswanadhan

These works cover the period from 1990 
to 2004. 

Opening on April 25 - until June 29, 2013


Why and how were these works chosen?   

 I discovered Viswanadhan recently. The artist, however, has been around for quite some time, stopping in Paris in the 
1960s, where he was noticed and supported by a major Paris gallery. In 2012, at the Fernand Léger Gallery (Ivry-sur-
Seine), I saw his paintings for the first time, which left me both confused and astonished, a sign that his work was taking 
me along paths to places I had never before explored. Among the works shown, one in particular caught my attention, 
and it is from this work (dated 2001) that the selection being exhibited here today was constituted. This selection covers 
a pivotal period in the development of Viswanadhan’s art.

The background of the paintings of that period is white, while the pigments used come from India. Green, red, yellow 

ochre and blue mixed with casein are applied in wide, flat transparent or opaque strokes, organising the painting 
geometrically. Through layer after layer of brush strokes, a subtle play of colours slowly appears. Visually, the 
sensations are shimmering, almost earthy. Varying transparencies and opacities are irregularly woven into the painting, 
inventing endlessly new tonalities and giving off a rare brightness.

Viswanadhan stands over the stretched canvas when he works, a position that he had already adopted as a child, 

when he was tracing the signs of tantric rituals in the sand. Large brush strokes infuse the space of his painting with a 
rhythm, which the artist regularly brings to a halt at the centre of his work, or almost. This simple act suffices to introduce 
an irregular element into the geometric design created by the alternating application of colours. Slowly and regularly, the
strokes follow the same movement, straight and repetitive, while the body moves and revolves around the canvas 
placed on the floor or on a table in the artist’s studio.

The selection of works by Velu Viswanadhan proposed here aims to show the point where the achievements of Indian

culture come together with those of contemporary art; a point of precious equilibrium between uniqueness and

2013 April Fools fave prank...

Cambridge: Scientists breed rabbits with human ears
They claim major breakthrough in organ production specifically for transplant.


Henry Oaks / The Telegraph
07:48AM GMT 01 Apr 2013

By introducing human embryonic stem cells at the aural maturation stage 
of rabbit foetuses in utero, at 24-days gestation, a team at 'Cambridge 
Organ Network' produced six healthy kits.

"We choose rabbits because they breed so fast we'll have all the ears for 
human transplant that we need, helping countless accident victims and 
those born with defects", said professor Alid Loyas, the organisation's 
head scientist.
