Harmony Korine and his wife Rachel were seen on September 6 at the Belcourt Theatre in Nashville, where Crispin Glover was presenting his film What Is It? (2005), participating in a questions-and-answers session, signing books and showing his slideshow presentation Crispin Hellion Glover’s Big Slide Show. Korine and Rachel were seen talking with Glover for a time during the book signing. Brandon Langley, who interviewed Korine this past July and also happened to be at the event, spoke with Korine for a moment too, where Korine said that he was close to finishing a new screenplay. Rachel Korine, who was said to be visibly pregnant, is due with child in December, Korine also said.
Jesus’ Son from the forum has provided the picture below, which is the cover of Pigxtras, a supplement by Harmony Korine that is included with the Fall/Winter 2008 issue of Purple, out now.
om January 8 through to February 26, 2009, Vanderbilt University (Nashville, Tennessee) will feature an exhibtion by Harmony Korine entitled Pigxote. The university’s website (link) provides the following information on the event:
This exhibition will cull together a number of photographs from Korine’s private files in order to reveal a side of the artist’s creative process that remains largely unexamined. Depicting an unnamed, mysterious young girl moving through a televised landscape of shifting contexts, Pigxote further illustrates Korine’s interest in replacing plot lines and expected narrative tropes with intuitively arranged “experiential moments.” They also provide a unique insight into the poetic mind of Nashville’s most compelling prodigal son.
The Fall/Winter 2008 issue of Purple includes Pigxtras, a supplement by Korine, which going by name may relate to this exhibition. Thanks to Brandon Langley.
