Persoane fără chip, în poziţii greu de imaginat. Aşa arată femeile la job, în perspectiva unei fotografe. Artista Isabelle Wenzel fotografiază corpul uman în poziţii ciudate, contorsionate. Ea a ales ca temă pentru cel mai recent proiect al ei femeile la locul de muncă: acestea sunt ascunse după vrafuri de hârtii şi dosare şi nu li se vede niciodată chipul.

大城市中充满活力,拥挤的人群、闪烁的灯光以及来回穿梭的汽车,让人目不暇接,有时还会让人眼花缭乱。而在以下摄影作品中,摄影师Stephanie Jung通过叠印的方式,让城市中每一个瞬间都变长,变得抽象化。特别是在喧嚣的大街上,每一个繁忙时刻都被加重,显得更加扑朔迷离,具有视觉冲击力,让人更加头晕目眩。

JUNYA ISHIGAMI

JUNYA ISHIGAMI  CUBOID BALLOON

준야 이시가미
Cuboid Balloon

Quando olhamos para a obra Cuboid Balloon, do artista Junya Ishigami, a primeira coisa que passa pela cabeça é imaginar como uma estrutura pode parecer tão imensamente pesada e, ao mesmo tempo, parecer flutuar? Trata-se de um pensamento absurdo, mas é impossível não refletir sobre esta dualidade. O cubo gigantesco de fato está lá, flutuando, no átrio do Museu de Arte Contemporânea de Tóquio. E o mais incrível é que o balão de alumínio, que pesa uma tonelada, é capaz de pairar no ar por causa de 1.000 m³ de um outro elemento muito simples, o gás hélio.

Jung-Yeon Min comes from South Korea, but now she lives and works in Paris. She has a lot of inventive and her super imaginative works look as though they could be drug-induced. People are in their dreams, in a surreal world. There is a mix of the realistic and the extraordinary; the micro and the macro, the world that we know and the virtual one. There is no time.

Marie Hudelot

Marie Hudelot

J’ai réalisé cette série de photographies argentique dans une volonté de construire un ensemble de portaits symboliques en m’inspirant des différents attributs de mon héritage familial partagé entre orient et occident, et plus précisemment entre la France et l’Algérie. Traitée à la manière de la tradition picturale des natures mortes, j’ai choisi de mettre en avant des personnages au visage recouvert, où la nature et différents objets significatifs de rites et coutumes prennent l’ascendant sur l’individu dans une réinterprétation de la transmission.

The base of the installation consists of layers of white stones which fill the ancient palace’s courtyard, echoing peaceful, meditative gardens. On top of the stones are piles or gatherings of petri dishes, some ten thousand in total, stacked in various forms, resembling miniature hills, mountains and rock formations.

KATE COOPER

KATE COOPER  rigged 22

Rigged
A hybrid of consumer associations, ranging from the glossy iconography of the TV commercial and the sterility of video game graphics to the luminosity of the department store poster and the smell of freshly opened cosmetics, create a subconscious lure. Her use of CGI technology in her artistic practice surpasses a simple study of digital textures (think nostalgic glitch-making) to occupy a full-fleshed, hyperreal space, usually reserved to corporate giants in advertising or entertainment.

Gligorov’s work attempts to shock the viewer. Each piece tantalizes the imagination, awakening it from a state of lethargy. Confronting a society accustomed to sophisticated and extreme forms of visual communication, Gligorov amplifies the shock value of his work in order to compete with the deluge of images that cloud our visual field.

In Finch’s universe if you wait a few hours, the sun may very well change a leaden hue into gold. Like the ancient practitioners of the hermetic arts, who saw changes as the most fundamental truth of the universe, the artist doesn’t always provide an answer in his investigations. For Finch art can do more; it can “ignite our capacity for wonder.”

Via her website, “Olga often attempts to make visible those concepts or properties that are indiscernible to the naked eye, such as cellular formations or magnetism. By making visual associations between the visible and the invisible—or the microscopic and the macrocosmic—Ziemska poetically underscores the interrelatedness of all things.”

shan-shui city
The ‘shan-shui city’ (the city of mountains and water) is one of MAD’s latest projects which will be build in guiyang. It came from a concept which dates back to ancient times of the mountain-water worship, followed by wu zixu’s idea (5th century BC) of locating cities by observing the earth and examining the water, and the emperors’ locating cities on the strategic place of the surrounding natural environment for defense.

[…] Normally, I get an idea for a picture and if I can’t think of a good reason not, I take it. I can’t censor my own stuff. That doesn’t bother me much, … you bring your own experiences to a picture. Sometimes I am surprised at the way they’re interpreted, but every opinion is as valid as mine because I haven’t usually formed an opinion before I’ve taken the shot.[…]

Using film, drawing, sculpture, animation, and performance, he transmutes sobering political events into powerful poetic allegories. In a now-signature technique, Kentridge photographs his charcoal drawings and paper collages over time, recording scenes as they evolve. Working without a script or storyboard, he plots out each animated film, preserving every addition and erasure.

Chromatophores Collection
“Chromatophores are the cells that give some creatures of nature the miraculous ability to change their colour to protect themselves,” says Leslie. “Like chameleons, jellyfish, cuttlefish and frogs they can change from muted tones into brightly coloured and vibrant stripes or patches of colours that are mesmerising. With this collection I imagined what it would be like if humans could perform this amazing feat with their hair.”

taraxacum
Alberto Tadiello’s works explore the possible forms of autonomous function associated with different objects and mechanisms as they undergo a parossistic conceptualization of their own functional logic. This logic is altered and tampered in order to start reflecting upon those deeper and psychological aspects which connect people to things and technologies.

Starting out from ingenious operations of displacement, a reminiscence of the ready-made and the grammars of Nouveau Réalisme and pop, the artist offers us a complicit vision, but one which is at the same time critical of contemporary society and the several features which serve the enunciations of collective identity, especially those that concern the status of women, class distinction or national identity.

Other Half Orbit
The installation consists of a large reflecting pool with built-in topographies to hold our bodies horizontally at exactly half-submersion. The images of our bodies become completed by reflection, and a secondary reflection of our shadows is cast on the wall. In the performance, we host an unscripted conversation about Ingrid’s memory loss, dreams, identity, and the possibility that we may never know one another fully.

Blending art with design, paper and a little imagination, artist Judith Hoffman builds her own ‘castles in the air.’ Think children’s paper and cardboard cities, all grown up. “Environment is the central factor in my work.

La obra de Jim Lambie se encuentra en esa delgadísima línea que separa los territorios de la alta y la baja cultura. Pero además, este tipo de activación del espacio ha hecho que los defensores acérrimos de un buen sector de la pintura contemporánea, aquella que abandona definitivamente el lienzo para adentrarse en parámetros y contextos más amplios, hayan hecho del artista escocés uno de sus grandes estandartes.

Wearable Structure: Tudor Collar
The traditional role of structure or stability becomes mobile when placed on the figure allowing the individual to indulge in the illusion of stability. The mobile/wearable element of the work further subverts attempts of control and order. Similar to the way water will carve a new path around an obstruction, participant finds new ways to move about daily routines in ordinary fashion.

For instance, his sculptures crafted from hardwood planks, which he began in 2008 after relocating from New York City to Hudson, New York, feature painted abstractions. They are collisions of nature, art-making, and history that exemplify the artist’s approach.

Скульптуры Кевина Френсиса сделаны преимущественно из бронзы и мрамора, а еще – стеклянных бус, бисера и других мелких аксессуаров, которые необходимы для создания целостного образа. А образы, нужно сказать, весьма специфические: черепа, вороны, готы и призраки, дети на могилах и мрачные люди без лица. Есть в них что-то потустороннее, как мне кажется.

Braman has a penchant for seeing the most common of objects—desks, cushions, file cabinets, tents—through the eye of an outsider. She extracts an unremarkable portion of the world, makes a few quick alterations, and then presents something fresh and unexpected. It’s a sleight-of-hand move that characterizes great assemblage, and Braman does it using a painter’s transformative touch.
