What’s Your Secret? Candy Chang Gets Confessions

Monday 04.29.2013 , Posted by

Candy Chang Confessions 4

What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas… and in the case of Candy Chang’s cathartic exhibition, those things stay there in the form of anonymous hand written sentences on squares of wood. Inspired by the likes of PostSecret, Shinto shrine prayer walls and the catholic church, “Confessions” was an event which encouraged viewers to enter private booths and write their secret on a veneer of wood. The collected words were then beautifully hung around the walls of the exhibition for all to observe and contemplate. [Read more...]

Although I’m not an avid Lotto player, I have definitely bought a ticket here and there and imagined what my life might be like if I were that lucky winner, as I’m sure many of you have. I’ve even had my heart strings pulled with one of those gag gift fake winning lotto tickets. But back to reality, hardly anyone wins big, so there is a huge abundance of losing lotto tickets all over the world that represent the shattered dream lives of all the hopeful players. Artist couple Adam Eckstrom and Lauren Was decided to give those abandoned tickets a new life in a series they call Ghost of a Dream. They have created collaged lotto ticket installations of all the ambitious items winners tend to buy, from Lamborghinis to Hummers, speed boats, dream homes, and of course, that perfect tropical vacation.

Remarkable Sculptures on Humans and Nature

yatoo-stillness

Viewed from the back, Olga Ziemska’s Stillness in Motion is only a bush of twigs, or at the most a tied bundle; but walk around to the front and you come face-to-face with a womanly figure cut with precision into the round wood sticks. Such is the case with much of this artists surprising work, at once looking familiar and then changing into something wholly unexpected. [Read more...]

Bec Wonders Invites You to “Step Inside”

Tuesday 04.02.2013 , Posted by

Bec Wonders Step Inside 8Bec Wonders Step Inside 1

Sometimes walking into an art gallery is anything but inviting. We enter into a space often as quiet as a library (or quieter), find expensive art with little or no clue to its meaning… and all of it has a strict “no touching” policy. That’s one of the many charms behind Edinburgh based Bec Wonders’ recent exhibition – as its name perfectly expresses, viewers were invited to “Step Inside” the artwork itself. [Read more...]

East Meets West: Zhu Jinshi’s ‘Boat’ Installation

Monday 04.01.2013 , Posted by

Zhu Jinshi Boat 4

It’s a huge structure, but it weighs only a small fraction of most things its size. That’s because the floating tube featured here is built out of 8,000 sheets of rice paper, 800 shafts of bamboo, and cotton. Chinese abstract artist Zhu Jinshi installed the 12-meter long hanging structure, called Boat, last month at Art13 London, a new international art fair where the highly experiential piece featured as the centerpiece for the show.
