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.

“You’re a sick fuck, Fink.”
Here we have a rather striking imagining of the titular character from my favourite film by the brothers Coen, Barton Fink. Created by Stefan Faehler and showing at the upcoming Spoke Art exhibition, Quentin Vs Coen, at New York’s Bold Hype Gallery from the 7th – 9th of April. Remaining work will be available to purchase online through the Spoke Art shop.
