Monsieur Oyster “Eating oysters is like kissing the sea on the lips,” the French poet Léon-Paul Fargue once wrote. In his ode to the aphrodisiacal mollusk, creative director Sergio Penzo traveled to the Arcachon coast in south-west France to capture the working day of famed sixth-generation oyster farmer and actor Joël Dupuch. “The work of the oyster culture is very lonely,” muses San Sebastian filmmaker Penzo, who as one half of Panthalassa alongside director Douglas Guillot documents the magnetism of the ocean through an ongoing series of films.
When you think of radical political art, you think of anarchy: ‘Eat the Rich,’ or something. The stuff I do is almost moderate, like ‘Don’t Torture.’ To me, that’s just common sense. It’s not a radical idea.

Mugwump & Luke Jenner: Halo The hosiery and exercise fetish on display in Mugwump’s previous video “Until You’re Worth It” has evolved into a monochromatic leather mask for the Belgian electronic music veteran’s “Halo,” directed by Sam Kadz with guest vocals from ex-Rapture frontman, Luke Jenner.
