Human spirography, Tony Orrico makes these stunning drawings for 4 hours sometimes to make one large piece. I think they are just an amazingly beautiful feat of patience.
Didier Faustino this very witty device is designed to teach couples how to kiss properly, the two sides pivot with the movements of the peoples heads. I think it’s a really fascinating piece of art controlling a kiss, how good do you think you are?
By JL Maas, the first in a series of inter-related short films that work with ideas of symbolism, dreamlike sculptures and performances of a strange, bizarre world. This burial ritual is a really interesting piece for me, it has many similarities with my person work.
"I investigate the subconscious realities that are offered through symbolism in dreams. I often make work based on my dreams, because dreams are symbolic interpretations of reality. There is something both lost and born when translating these intangible realities into a physical form."
By Katie Rivers, a very good friend of mine, as part of a performance piece, Aveugle Chienne Dans Un Béret, in which she took the role of a painter, but blind-folded and listened to her subjects being interviewed using a series of psychological questions. The colours and shapes she then painted were the result of her feelings and impressions about the stranger being interviewed—creating a series of abstract portraits.
By Beili Liu,The Mending Project, a favourite piece of mine from last year, interacting with her audience asking them to cut a segment of fabric from a large cloth which then required the artist to stitch it back together in a huge patchwork. All the time set on edge by the imposing pairs of dagger-down scissors floating above her. Watch a clip of the installation here.
By Salto Architects, these incredible shots are from the piece of work titled ‘Fast Track’, it has elements of childish enjoyment, on a scale that would make you feel like an astronaut on the moon, bouncing along at super-human heights!
By Courtney McCracken, a not so conventional show of works titled, For Your Pleasure, which indulges every art viewers ultimate temptation - encouraging them to destroy each piece over the duration of the show.
By Robert Barta, these images are from his most recent installation, CROSSING HALF A MILLION STARS, which is a wonderful and engaging piece of work that comprises of 500,000 ball bearings on the gallery floor that the viewers are invited to carefully walk across as they enter the room. It looks like jolly good fun!
