Like the climax of Shinya Tsukamoto’s 1989 film Tetsuo, from which the exhibition gets its name, 俺たちの愛情で世界中を燃えあがらせてやるぜ。やりまくるぞ。is about merger. In the case of Tetsuo it is between a salaryman and a fetishist; one tied into commerce and corporations, the other a shamanistic punk capable of extraordinary powers of transformation. Perhaps art is locked in a similar conflict between commodity and fetish, a composition of money and magic. Perhaps that's the deal. Or perhaps these forces combine to let an uncanny state of amity emerge from impossible conflicts, a state from which to take apart the world. That was the curatorial proposition. The work in the exhibition may be something different. I am writing this in the summer. It is hot and the Olympics have just come to an end. It is autumn at the exhibition, and the Frieze Art Fair is opening in Regent's Park.
