Hi.

The name, "Ninu Nina" stems from the alien language spoken by Robin Williams in "Mork & Mindy" ( a popular 1970's comedy show).

GETTING DUMPED VIA EMAIL

GETTING DUMPED VIA EMAIL

This is not necessarily 2009 art news but a friend just mentioned this artist to me and I felt I should share it with our Ninu Nina audience in case you didn't hear about it in 2007. When a boyfriend dumped her by email, French artist Sophie Calle asked 100 women to read it - and became the star of the Venice Biennale. She is one of France's best-known living conceptual artists with a praised traveling exhibition about her emailed dumping letter. "The idea came to me very quickly, two days after he sent it," she said. "I showed the email to a close friend asking her how to reply, and she said she'd do this or that. The idea came to me to develop an investigation through various women's professional vocabulary."
