ERIK FRIEDLANDER’s „THROW A GLASS“

August 2018

Cellist Erik Friedlander distills the brain-bending powers of absinthe, and the darkness of its murky past into his latest project, Artemisia.  In 2015, Erik Friedlander visited MOMA for their Pablo Picasso sculpture exhibit. There he first encountered Picasso’s absinthe glasses. “The glasses were pretty... kind of innocent on first glance, but as I looked more closely, I found a dangerous side. The front of each glass is exposed - torn away to show its insides. It seemed like Picasso was saying this is what happens to you when you drink absinthe,” says Friedlander. This viewing spurred Erik into an exploration of absinthe’s mysterious history: beneath a glamorous veneer in 19th century Paris lurked accusations of hallucinatory properties and elusive effects that created an atmosphere of addiction and demise.
