Emilie Brzezinski: “Family Trees”

Emilie Brzezinski: “Family Trees” | Arts & Culture by Docent.co | Scoop.it

Emilie Brzezinski: “Family Trees”, 2013, Gdansk City Gallery, Poland

 

“Family Trees” is a metaphorical portrait of the Brzezinski family, crafted out of Emilie Brzezinski’s trademark monumental freestanding, natural wood sculptures. The installation is an affirmation of the artist’s cultural identity and the need for self-definition within one’s family.

The Exbury Egg: Art, Architecture + Environmental Awareness

The Exbury Egg: Art, Architecture + Environmental Awareness | Arts & Culture by Docent.co | Scoop.it

Artist Stephen Turner has worked with PAD Studio to create the Exbury Egg, the first water-borne artist’s studio, designed to combine art, architecture and sustainability of a fragile marine environment.


Turner (who specialises in long term artistic explorations of environmental settings), will now use it as a “residency”, floating in the Beaulieu Estuary for a year, to examine the changing patterns of its marine ecology, while making artworks inspired by his surroundings. “This ambitious project tests the role of artists and architects in sensitive places and contributes to raising awareness of the importance of protecting places like the Estuary”, explains the artist.

Both view points in this video: Ok to touch WITH permission, and NOT okay to touch - would you ask to touch any other part of my body?

And it's interesting that when she has the sign that says "You can touch my hair", less people touch it :D
