Dark Crystals: Skull Chandelier By Kelly Lamb

June 28, 2011 § Leave a comment

If ever a subjective dichotomy existed in the world of light fixtures and materials, it must surely lie in the formation of chandeliers and the use of Swarovski crystals. Indeed, both are rather prone to straddling the aesthetic polarity of the strikingly attractive and the astonishingly hideous. It is well, then, that the cranial creation of multimedia artist and designer, Kelly Lamb, does, to my eyes, plant itself firmly in the former.

Yes, L.A.-based former New Yorker, Lamb, has taken an unknown number of the ubiquitous crystals and constructed the anatomically reverential piece, Skull Chandelier. Darkly mesmeric, Skull Chandelier is quite the pleasing fusion of this tricky twosome.

Fearful Symmetry: Anish Kapoor’s “Leviathan” / Monumenta 2011

June 8, 2011 § Leave a comment

Filling the 13,500m2 space of Paris’ Grand Palais , Anish Kapoor’s Leviathan is every bit the colossus its Biblical title would suggest. Dedicated to still-missing Chinese artist, Ai Wewei, Leviathan was commissioned by France’s Ministry For Culture And Communication for this year’s Monumenta exhibition, an event now in its fourth year of challenging some of the world’s most renowned artists.

Yielding to the immense space proved advantageous for Britain’s Turner Prize-winning sculptor, whose four-chambered, inflated PVC structure makes explicit use of the glass-domed site, allowing Kapoor not only his trademark scale, but also to extend his close relationship with architecture. Of his spatially-interactive, perfectly symmetrical installation, Kapoor says this: “A single object, a single form, a single colour. My ambition is to create a space within a space that responds to the height and luminosity of the Nave at the Grand Palais. Visitors will be invited to walk inside the work, to immerse themselves in colour, and it will, I hope, be a contemplative and poetic experience.”

Titanic, womb-like, and all but drawing breath, you have until June 23rd to make this speculative artwork your own.

NordArt 2011

June 6, 2011 § Leave a comment

As above, so on show at this year’s now-commenced NordArt. Running until the 2nd of October 2011, NordArt is showing works by over 200 jury-selected contemporary artists across various mediums, all culminating in a singular aim: to give you the most comprehensive view of contemporary art within a unique arena that does itself become an artwork.

Located at the old Carlshütte foundry buildings in Büdelsdorf, Germany, this annual exhibition has become the largest of its kind in Northern Europe since its 1999 inception. With a vast venue spanning multiple adjoining spaces, NordArt will be accompanied by a selection of cultural events including readings and film presentations. As previously mentioned, the ominously figurative Time Guards sculptures by Manfred Kielnhofer (pictured) will be making one of their ethereal appearances, and on September 17th the doubtless-unmissable Long Night Of The Lights will see the entire exhibition illuminated with coloured light.
