As part of The Impossible Project we have been inviting artists to undertake 'micro-commissions'. They are either invitations to conceive of, attempt and document an Impossible Task or to undertake a conversation with Anna Tregloan where she will attempt (the similarly impossible task) of capturing aspects of their creative endeavours in sketch form.
We asked Stephen Nicolazzo to attempt an Impossible Task, he replied:-
"With lockdown, with isolation, I wanted to attempt an impossible task that would bring me pleasure, keep me sane, and get me dancing. SO, I decided to attempt listening to every Madonna single, on vinyl, within an hour. As an artist with over 50 released singles between 1983-2020, this was inevitably going to fail, but I derived such joy from revisiting these works that it proved an important moment of light in my day. Of the 50+ singles by Madonna since 1983, I managed to only get to 1986, with about ten tracks total in an hour! I honestly thought I would get more in but was faced with the dreaded (but also EXTREMELY danceable) 12" edits of the 80s, where songs you love go on and on for 7 to 8 minutes with a continuous electronic beat. This video shows you the process of both attempting to play vinyls one after another in a very short time frame, with one hand, as the other was filming- and my silly and undying love and adoration for the music of a queer icon."
NEW TASKS AND IMPOSSIBLE OUTCOMES ARE BEING ADDED EVERY WEEK. COME BACK SOON.
