Honeyspace is an oasis of fresh thinking about art and its presentation — it is closer to the process of making it than to the process of selling it — despite its location in the midst of Chelsea’s booming commercial galleries.
This is largely because the space is run not by a dealer, but by an artist: the sculptor Thomas Beale. The gallery is unmarked, no one is guarding the space, it has no sleek white walls and no commercial purpose. The building owner donated studio space to Beale and supported his radical idea to open an unmonitored gallery. Since it first opened in February of this year, Honeyspace has gained a lot of attention for its provocative ideas and shows.
Honeyspace’s fourth show is called Portrait of Silvia Elena, a memorial to 17-year-old Silvia Elena Rivera Morales who was killed in 1995 — one of the first victims of the unsolved femicides taking place in Juarez, Mexico over the past 10 years.
The installation is a collaborative project by Swoon, a New York artist, famous for placing her wheatpaste cutouts on the streets of New York as well as showing them at MoMA, Brooklyn Museum and Deitch Projects, and Tennessee Jane Watson, a documentarian and social activist.
Most visitors stumble upon the unmarked gallery, where a small framed note on the wall invites them into the raw basement to see the piece. Shabby stairs lead viewers underground and one cannot help but be submerged in the somber mood of the installation. Such a departure from a safe guarded gallery in the rest of Chelsea drastically changes the usual gallery experience. The installation includes sound recordings by Watson, shrine elements and an intricate cut out portrait of Silvia Elena by Swoon.
The only explanation of the piece is in the corner of Honeyspace’s street level. The shrine on the table is made out of flowers, candles lighting the posters of the disappeared women, photographs of the commemorative pink crosses spread along the roads of Juarez and snapshots of the girls among their friends and family before their tragic disappearances.
To date, over 500 women and girls have been confirmed killed in Juarez, and more an 1000 have disappeared. Most of the victims are young, poor, and have been sexually assaulted prior to their deaths. The local police has been extremely ineffective in solving the 10 year old terror.
Earlier this year, during the trip to Juarez, Swoon and Watson met Silvia Elena’s mother Ramona Morales. They recorded Ramona’s recount of Silvia’s disappearance, traveled together to Silvia’s grave and brought back photographs of Silvia.
By inviting us to mourn together with them, Swoon and Watson bring emotion into the cold news stories we read and hear everyday of events taking place in Mexico, a place so far away, yet so close.

US to check Somali pirate menace in Gulf of Aden
The US government should work in close collaboration with other countries in the gulf to tackle piracy by Somali pirates in the region. We should not only take note but also applaud the sinking of a suspected Somali pirate vessel in the Gulf of Aden by an Indian navy warship. INS Tabar sank the pirate ‘mother ship’ after it did not stop for investigation and instead opened fire. US with its best naval capacity can deploy its naval vessels and military aircrafts to effectively fight piracy off the coast of Somalia. International community must pick the challenge of restoring normalcy in Somalia since whatever happens there certainly has an effect on what’s happening out in the Gulf of Aden. The region is an important transit route for both commercial and military supplies for the US fighting two most important wars in the region Iraq and Afghanistan. Destruction of Somali pirates becomes essential to ensure safe passage of vital shipments.
Nepali Supreme Court approves gay marriage
California voters may have rejected same sex marriage Nepali Supreme Court however has agreed to the same. The court by its ruling has upheld the basic human rights including the right to same sex marriage. In doing so the Apex Court has defeated the Maoist idea of having a Nepal that despises gay rights as bourgeois idea fit to be scorned at. And, why just California, Nepal has vanquished India, the world’s largest democracy which is seeking to criminalize homosexual sex and where lawyers are fighting an uphill battle to remove the proposed ban on gay marriage. For sure the world is turning upside down. Gays from South Asia once used to seek asylum in the United States it would be interesting to see the tide turning. Soon Californians would be heading to Nepal to get married in the shadow of the Himalayas.
Mexican teachers become victims of drug extortion racket
Elementary school teachers are the latest victims of an exploding extortion racket in the border city of Ciudad Juarez, Mexico, as criminal gangs threaten educators to either hand over their coming Christmas bonuses or see harm done to their families or students. On Tuesday, full-page ads were taken out in local papers by a wide coalition of business, religious, political and social groups asking President Felipe Calderon for more help. The federal government has already sent thousands of federal police and soldiers, but crime has only gotten worse. What is certain is that as bonus day approaches, teachers, parents and students alike are getting nervous, It's going to be a crisis when they come to collect their extortion money.
Tollywood expresses solidarity with Sri Lankan Tamils
“When every Tamil heart is wounded over the sufferings of our brethren in Sri Lanka, it is inappropriate to celebrate my birthday”. This is the latest comment from Rajnikanth aimed at expressing his solidarity with the Tamil community facing the wrath of Sri Lankan army. The announcement is nothing but star tactics meant to shore up his image amongst his fans. Actually the star is trying to salvage his marketability since “Kuselan” starring Rajnikant sold at a cost of Rs.650 millio, bombed at the box office triggering a crisis in the Tamil film industry. It seems that Rajnikanth is all geared up to take a plunge in politics just like veteran M.Karunanidhi and Jayalalitha. The so called stars of Tamil film industry may take the leverage of accusing Sri Lanka of committing genocide and crimes against humanity. However nothing can stop us from protecting our territorial sovereignty and integrity.
