Nest : Dash Snow, Dan Colen by Dash Snow( Book )

Thirty volunteers spent three days shredding two-thousand New York City telephone books in preparation for one of the most unusual exhibitions ever presented by a New York gallery: Dash Snow and Dan Colen's NEST. Adapting their infamous 'hamster nest' to 76 Grand Street, they reveal to the public a performance they have until now created only in private. The resulting pandemonium is on view, in addition to video and photographic documentation. A 'Hamster Nest' normally consists of their shredding enormous amounts of whatever paper material they can get their hands on and ransacking the interior of their selected space in an exuberant overnight fete. Over the years this has taken place in hotel rooms all over the world, existing only in occasional Polaroids, video, and the memories of exasperated hotel staff. On July 3rd, Dan and Dash invited fifteen fellow artists including Aaron Bondaroff, Hanna Liden, Jack Walls, Nate Lowman, and Adam McEwan to Grand Street, and from midnight to 8am, rolled around together in the waist-deep shredded paper to create this piece. One night proved to be not enough to complete their creative destruction and Dash brought a group of compatriots four additional nights. With paint poles speared into the wall, bottles protruding from hacked-up sheetrock, and a pummeling of enormous wine, pee, and paint spit-balls stuck to the walls, it seems a great deal took place during these night-into-mornings. Dark and brutal slogans commingle with moments of love and tenderness as both sentiments go into creating this ambiguous dwelling

Love roses by Dash Snow( Book )

2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Loves roses" are glass tubes, 3/8 inches in diameter, 4 inches long. Covered on one end with foil, each contains a cloth flower: red, yellow, blue, violet, white or green. They are duplicitous objects. If you ask one kind of person, they'll tell you these "stems" are romantic offerings, valentine's gifts. If you ask another kind of person, they'll tell you these are pipes for smoking crack cocaine. In September 2008 at a palazzo gallery in Brescia, Italy, Dan Colen and Nate Lowman installed the third incarnation of an evolving body of collaborative work. A long-envisioned but, until Italy, unrealized plan for a sculpture had been a "beaded" curtain made of "love roses" (and titled the same). The curtain was hung in a doorway leading into the ornate spaces housing the rest of their show. Dash snow arrived in Brescia when Colen and Lowman were finishing their installation. A close friend of the collaborators, snow had documented their shared process since its inception in 2007, and he continued here. As well-heeled Italian patrons (almost all of them women) arrived for the show's opening night, snow began shooting photographs of them passing through love roses on their way into the galleries. The piece created a theatrical plane through which snow could enter the partnership and break apart the odd boundaries of inclusivity and exclusivity inherent to art making and art consumption. In turn, this staging ground quickly provoked the visitors to make dramatic entrances. Every passage through love roses and across snow's lens built on the collaborative armature - whether or not the participants were aware of the potential irony of the curtain or of the cumulative performance itself. At certain points, Lowman and Colen enter the frame of the photographs; at others, Snow is visible in his simultaneously primary and tertiary role as auteur. The three planned to create a book from the images as soon as they saw Snow's processed film in 2008, however Snow passed away before they initiated the project. This book is made now through the collaboration of the Dash Snow Estate, Dan Colen, Nate Lowman and Brendan Dugan."--Colophon

I love you, Stupid! by Dash Snow( Book )

"New York artist Dash Snow's death in July 2009, two weeks before his 28th birthday, sent shockwaves of grief through the art world, though it was not unexpected. Since his late teens, Snow had used photography to documents his days and nights of extreme hedonism--nights which, as he famously claimed, he might not otherwise remember. As these Polaroid photographs began to be exhibited in the early 2000s, Snow was briefly launched to art-world superstardom, keeping company with the likes of Dan Colen and Ryan McGinley, with whom he pioneered a photographic style whose subject matter is best characterized in McGinley's brief memoir of Snow: "Irresponsible, reckless, carefree, wild, rich--we were just kids doing drugs and being bad, out at bars every night. Sniffing coke off toilet seats. Doing bumps off each others' fists. Driving down one-way streets in Milan at 100 miles an hour blasting 'I Did It My Way' in a white van." Dash Snow: I Love You, Stupid compiles these famous Polaroids, previously only published in relatively expensive editions. Opening with scenes of friends crashed on beds and couches, floors and even the street, it records hazily snatched glimpses of sex, hard drugs and hanging out; adventures in cars, baths, pools, subway cars, friends' apartments, on boardwalks and rooftops."--Publisher description
