If people aren’t suffering enough, they’re not interesting enough This scene is being created for the Ukrainian pavilion at the 2024 Venice Biennale, the most important international clan-gathering of the global art world, and one that always shines a light on the geopolitical mood of the moment.

Photograph: Joel Goodman/The GuardianThe pavilion will show an intimate, moving hour-long film cut together by Andrii Rachynskyi and Daniil Revkovskyi from footage posted by citizens to YouTube, placing the viewer right inside the civilian experience of invasion.

We see the same face everywhere in the news, when any house is destroyed in Kharkiv or Kyiv Dostliev explains to the Ukrainian women that today’s scenario, with the Liverpool-based actor Pay, is about the image of the lone female victim of war: the woman photographed outside her bombed home, in the shock of loss.

After roles in Legacy of Rage and Showdown in Little Tokyo, Brandon, who had his father’s smouldering good looks and natural gift for martial arts, was on the cusp of stardom when he was accidentally shot and killed by a faulty prop gun, fired by his co-star Michael Massee during filming, in 1993.

But if you’re not going to do that, then I think you have to put laws and better safety measures in place than what exists currently.” Brandon’s death was ruled as negligence and, although no charges were brought, Lee’s mother successfully sued the film-makers for an undisclosed amount.

Quentin Tarantino was criticised for featuring a fight scene with the martial arts star in his 2019 film Once Upon a Time … in Hollywood, in which he portrayed Bruce as a cocky, inept fighter.

Photograph: TBCAlongside experiments destined for the dancefloor, Russell continued to record sparer electro-acoustic compositions, all the while soundtracking austere dance or theatre pieces, earning the respect of composer Philip Glass and playing in various ensembles.

He could also turn his hand to relatively conventional singer-songwriter material – witness the posthumously released Love Is Overtaking Me album – but Instrumentals, a 1984 rendering of a Russell composition from a decade prior, with modular parts that musicians could theoretically begin at random points in the score, is perhaps more typical.

King has been given access to Russell’s considerable archive, housed in the New York Public Library for the Performing Arts, to compile this intimate coffee-table tome: an array of his letters, written in careful pencil, plus event flyers, scores and charts, sleeve artwork and cool ephemera (numerological workings-out, invoices for studio time).

Yayoi Kusama, the Japanese artist who has become an Instagram favourite in her 90s with her fantastical pumpkin sculptures, polka dots and kaleidoscopic infinity rooms, is the subject of a blockbuster retrospective heading to Australia.

The retrospective will spill out of the gallery’s interiors and on to the Federation Court, and will include an as yet unseen Kusama installation under the cascades of the building’s familiar water wall.

It is these immersive kaleidoscopic works, representing Kusama’s lifelong exploration of self-obliteration and the infinity of space, that have earned her the title of world’s most Instagrammable artist.

  • Summary

There’s something slightly miraculous about this broad swathe of countryside sandwiched between the built-up coastal strip and the belt of commuter towns – Burgess Hill, Haywards Heath and Crawley that lie to the north of Briggs’ corner of the national park.

If I have more time, I’ll walk the three miles from Ditchling to East Chiltington, following the route of the old Roman road – the Greensand Way – that once ran from Barcombe Mills, near Lewes, to Pulborough in West Sussex.

Eat The Nutmeg Tree in Ditchling serves excellent lunches, coffee and cake in its pretty walled garden and traditional tearoom, while the Half Moon in Plumpton offers small plates – welsh rarebit, mushrooms on toast – alongside pub classics.

  • Summary

If you are serving it with ricotta, you could whisk it with a tablespoon each of milk and parmesan and some freshly grated lemon zest, which makes a soft cream to blob on each bowlful.

Typical of Lazio in spring, scafata is somewhere between a soup and a nicely oily stew, and is best served at room temperature with a spoonful of seasoned ricotta and a big pile of garlic and olive oil toast.

In a large, heavy-based pan, warm the oil, then gently fry the spring onion and celery with a pinch of salt for about 10 minutes, until translucent and soft.

Middle East crisis live: UK foreign secretary condemns ‘reckless’ Iran attack on Israel as UN chief says region on ‘brink’

1 min, 23 secs

Summary

Describing it as “a reckless and dangerous thing for Iran to have done”, the UK’s foreign secretary David Cameron said that Tehran’s attack was a “double defeat”, as it had failed to inflict damage on Israel, and that “they’ve revealed to the world that they are the malign influence in the region.”

Regional officials, including Iran’s foreign minister, had previously said Tehran had given notice to neighbouring countries days before its attack, which gave Israel and allies the US, UK and Jordan time to convene a significant defensive response.

“Sorry you’ve been dragged down south... although I do have particularly fond memories of visits to a batting coach at the Oval, during the days when shift work at the BBC World Service made holding down a place in a half-decent (who am I kidding?

Photograph: Frank Baron/The Guardian”On another occasion, our musings were interrupted by a (relatively) young Alec Stewart and Mark Butcher working on improving their technique, which was quite impressive given that it was a) only 11-20 on the first morning of a Championship game, b) that Surrey were batting first and c) they were both in the top three of the order that day.

”Apart from the fact that there was a chunk of the weekend where it wasn’t working at all, several of the scores on the left-hand side of the page spent most of Sunday with spurious Ds giving the erroneous impression that some highly creative bartering had been going on amongst the captains.

The pet I’ll never forget: Oscar the cat, who opened my eyes to the power of male friendship

46 secs

Summary

When they locked eyes across the scrubbed concrete floor of the shelter that Oscar presided over with mob-boss-like remove, an oath of loyalty was sworn.

In the hierarchy of domestic crimes, this sits somewhere between dirtying the windows (which Oscar frequently did) and gratuitously putting on the heating.

There was tenderness: once, my dad accidentally clipped Oscar’s tail in the door when he came running over to greet him; I’ve seen less ashen-faced men in a morgue.
