Pin-Up Queens: Three Female Artists Who Shaped the American Dream Girl

Pin-Up Queens: Three Female Artists Who Shaped the American Dream Girl | VIM | Scoop.it

“So many women are left out of historical records,” Dahlsad says. “Men will say, ‘I want to show off what my father did; he deserves to shine. Someone should do a book on him!’ Daughters don’t do that about their moms to the same degree, so often things get thrown away. How many men would look at their archives say, ‘Just take it all to the dumpster’? Somebody would be saying, ‘You can’t do that! You’re George Petty. Put it back!’”

Chiharu Shiota: Performative Installation Art

Chiharu Shiota: Performative Installation Art | VIM | Scoop.it

Chiharu Shiota was born in Osaka, Japan in 1972. Having studied in German art schools, her work envelops both genres of installation and performance art, reminiscent of the 1970s. Influenced by the work of Schneemann, Bourgeois, and mendieta, Shiota's work often invites the viewer in and restricts physical access at the same time. Using thread, the artists creates a pictorial language of memory, loss, and connectivity. Through the manual labor or knotting and tying, Shiota makes the process of creating the installations performative.

Esther Stocker

Esther Stocker | VIM | Scoop.it

Italian installation artist Esther Stocker creates stunning geometric environments that are often open for exploration by the viewer. The construction of each piece appears to follow some type of mathematical equation, resulting in unusual linear patterns and planes that completely transform the physical space into a surreal environment.

Stocker's current installation, Based on a Grid, in on display at Z33 – House for Contemporary Art in Hasselt, Belgium until the end of September. The work is created with black painted wooden blocks of various sizes, which are organized in a "system" on the white floor and walls of the gallery. The artist's installations create a very digital environment for the viewers, often distorting the interior space with optical illusions.

Damián Ortega: Cosmic Thing

Damián Ortega: Cosmic Thing | VIM | Scoop.it

Damian Ortega lives and works in Berlin, Germany and Mexico City. Born in 1967, New Mexico City, Ortega's work Cosmic Thing, makes subtle hints at the Volkswagen Beetle's role in globalization of Mexico, as it was a production site from the 1950s until 2003.

 

Damián Ortega's Cosmic Thing is reminiscent of Duchamp's "Readymades" in the artistic approach of taking an object and transforming it into a work of art. Cosmic Thing is a grey Volkswagen Beetle that has been "exploded" in the gallery space. Suspended from high test aircraft cable, every part of the Beetle has been dissected and strategically hung from the gallery ceiling. The work invites the viewer to inspect the object as individual pieces which collectively form the iconic car.

Doris Salcedo: Istanbul

Doris Salcedo: Istanbul | VIM | Scoop.it

Doris Salcedo's Istanbul takes aim at the artist's idea of war. Commemorative of mass graves, the artist filled an empty space between two buildings in central Istanbul with 1,550  wooden chairs. The chairs are meant to signify not only the absence of humanity, but also a connection with humanity. 

 

Taking aim at war in general, the work makes a visual impact on the viewer both in scale and aesthetics. The site isn't necessarily visually pleasing, but it creates a heaviness in visual weight and conceptual weight. The artist intends the work to create an individual experience, as well as a collective glimpse into chaos and absence, two effects of wartime violence.

아직 어느 전시회에도 출품된 적이 없는 제프 쿤의 설치작품으로, 1994년부터 2006년까지 12년에 걸쳐 만든 다섯 점의 ''HANGING HEART' 시리즈 중의 한점입니다. 그런데 이 작품은 너무 호화로워 보는 사람에 따라서는 반감을 갖거나 아무러 감흥을 느끼지 못할 수도 있습니다.   

그러나 아름다움은 아름다울 일뿐 그 이상도 그 이하도 아닙니다. 그냥 편안히 바라보면서 아름다움을 느껴보시기 바랍니다.

Monika Grzymala’s Installations « CubeMe | VIM | Scoop.it

Polish artist Monkia Gryzmala's "Raumzeichnung" (Drawings in Space) is created as a response to the Sumarria Lunn Gallery's interior space. The artist works entirely with monochrome tape to build complex "drawings" that redefine the architectural space. Beginning at the central wall in the gallery,the tape covers archways, creates barriers, and spreads throughout the space as a reminder of the "invisible" wireless network that ever-present in our modern world.

Maya Lin at Pace Wildenstein

Maya Lin at Pace Wildenstein | VIM | Scoop.it

Maya Lin's Three Ways of Looking at the Earth at the Pace Wildenstein gallery hosted three of the artist's conceptual, systematic explorations of landscapes. The artist, known for monumental and earthworks, created landscapes that would transform viewers’ perspectives about the land and the sea by inviting them to navigate around, through and under these site-related installations. In 2x4 Landscape, Lin used 50,000 individually cut pieces of wood to create a pixelated landscape, reminiscent of architecture. Maya Lin’s work aims to reveal something new and startling about the planet we inhabit. The artist also hopes to bring attention to the physical relationship we have with the natural environment.

Susan Stockwell works in large scale installations, sculpture, drawings and collage. The artists takes on issues of ecology, beauty, mapping, colonial histories, trade and global commerce.

In many works, she borrows materials from suppliers or recycle companies and returns them after the length of her show. Stockwell is well known for her site specific installation at York St Mary's, a de-consecrated 13th century church. Flood, was purposely sited in the alter area of the church, using the ceiling height and referencing the stained glass window behind. Using 4 tons of recycled power supplies from discarded computers, the work speaks about the current stage of communication.

Stockwell exhibits in galleries and museums all over the world. She has exhibited at The Victoria and Albert Museum in London, The National Museum of China in Beijing and The Katonah Museum of Art in America. She has taught extensively and taken part in residencies and projects in Europe, America and Asia.

Félix González-Torres: “Untitled” (Portrait of Ross in L.A.)

Félix González-Torres: “Untitled” (Portrait of Ross in L.A.) | VIM | Scoop.it

Félix González-Torres was a Cuban born, American artist who died in 1996. His installation, “Untitled” (Portrait of Ross in L.A.), paid homage to his partner who died of AIDS related illness. The concept of the piece is perpetual life through replenishment. Comprised of 175 pounds (Ross's ideal body weight) of brightly colored, individually wrapped candy, the installation is intended to invite viewers to take a piece of the candy. The resulting loss of weight of the candy suggests the loss of Ross's weight and suffering from his illness. The artist stipulated upon installation that the dimished weight should be replenished daily to its original weight of 175 pounds. 

 

Gonzalez-Torres studied in Puerto Rico, New York, Venice, and Berlin. He received his Master of Fine Arts by the International Center of Photography and New York University and taught at New York University and briefly at the California Institute of the Arts.
