Dark wall’s choice: Solar Festival masterpieces by Empress Marie Antonette for The Ineffable Treasures of MinXus Exhibition

Serving as guest curator, Dark wall has completed the enormous and important task of selecting work by Empress Marie for inclusion in “The Ineffable Treasures of MinXus Exhibition – Royal Gallery of the Empress.” These relics were made by the Empress and acquired by MinXus USA during Solar Festival 2012. Above is an extraordinary visual poem that has enjoyed a revered place on the Bunk House wall for the summer. All the ranch hands insisted it appear in the show, under the condition that it will be returned to them. Here is the reverse side:

Next is an unbelievably rare variant on Empress Marie’s well-known “Leda and the Swan” visual poem that created such a stir several months ago.  This is a relic of inestimable value because it offers a deeper understanding of the original work and Empress Marie’s intent.

Next is, perhaps, the jewel in the crown of the entire collection. An asemic visual poem of rare beauty and lyricism flawlessly integrating found material and a brilliant expression of Holism. Dark wall calls it “The Tokyo Asemic Tapestry”:

Here is a detail shot:

Dark wall also chose several pieces that are unaltered material that must have appealed to the eye of the Empress and were touched by her hands. They are MinXus relics of the highest order:

A page of interesting text with paper rips made by the Empress herself:

All correspondence from Empress Marie during the Solar Festival included fantastic stamps and envelope decorations. These are a class of MinXus relics unto themselves. Dark wall selected one, elegant piece as a representation:

The Royal Gallery of the Empress is one of the great and lasting triumphs of Solar Festival 2012.

    What an honor to feature at the opening of the Ineffable Treasures, Darks! Thank you for putting together the collection! It was really fun to use the mini prints of your solar posters on envelopes. Kind of addicitve, actually. I wanted to stick them on everything.

    Oh, some part of the Daydreamer is gone? That wasn’t a rip by the Empress. Dw?

    The scan of the asemic tapestry just doesn’t work. The thing is gorgeous in person. I assume it’s rice paper? The scan makes it look exactly like Trashpo. Sorry.
