Urban Indiana Jones

04.09.12 Marina Galperina

Just wait for it. This video takes a little while to climax, so just enjoy the chopping. From the artist who turned Prague’s rotating billboard into a carousel and terrorized the streets with a D.I.Y. bike lane projection, comes… this. It’s the inner child, well-fed on adventure films and let loose into a semi-urban landscape with a machette. Chop. Chop. Vladimir Turner’s Urbania Jones is a video-performance/public intervention, shot in Valencia. That’s Valencia, Spain, not Cal Arts. It seems like it would be Cal Arts, that with the greenery and the unstifled joy of it all.
