Scultura in strada: TEJN

Scultura in strada: TEJN | TEJN | Scoop.it

Non ci sono solo le sculture ufficiali in giro per Berlino. Ad arricchire il panorama c’è anche uno dei migliori esponenti della street art “scultorea”: Tejn, pseudonimo di un artista danese che ha dedicato parecchi piccoli capolavori a Berlino.

Si tratta di piccole sculture di metallo, incatenate per le strade.

Remember the 17th of December | Magasinrepo | TEJN | Scoop.it

Den sjuttonde december 2010 blev sista gången den tunisiska regeringsmakten konfiskerade gatuförsäljaren Muhammed Bouazizis grönsaksvagn. Klockan halv tolv på förmiddagen tog tjugosexåringen en tändare och satte eld på sin bensinindränkta kropp i protest mot en odemokratisk statsapparats övergrepp.

 

Muhammed Bouazizis aktion satte igång ett folkligt uppror och arabvärldens autokratiska regeringar sattes i gungning. Idag är det tre år sedan den arabiska våren startade och upproret pågår fortfarande...

Lock On - Wikipedia, den frie encyklopædi

"lock on" er en nyere gren indenfor street art / gadekunst, som går ud på, at kunstneren bevæbnet med kunst, kæde og lås, monterer objekter i gadebilledet, så de interagerer med omgivelserne [1].

Begrebet lock on stammer fra gadekunstkulturen. En lock on ("lås fast til") er kunst som typisk er sat fast til en lygtepæl eller lignende, med en form for lås. Heraf navnet [2].

Lock On genren er en "ikke destruktiv" gren af den hastigt udviklende street art kultur [3].

Berlin Street Art - TEJN

Berlin Street Art - TEJN | TEJN | Scoop.it

A selection of some of the best Street Art Berlin has to offer.

Danish Street Artist TEJN creates sculptures from salvaged Iron found on the streets.  A number of pieces from his ‘Locked On’ project have popped up around Berlin including this huge character, which seems to me like it may be a Norse god, a larger version of a previous sculpture on Kastanianallee.

i812's insight:

The struggle for freedom continues.

Picture above: Street art sculpture by TEJN. Handcuffed character reaching for freedom symbolized in a bolt cutter, chained just/almost out of reach.

Tejn | Gyldendals encyklopædi

Tejn | Gyldendals encyklopædi | TEJN | Scoop.it

Tejn, f. 1976, dansk billedkunstner, der begyndte sit kunstneriske virke som gadekunstner og er siden, uden at have forladt sit oprindelige element, også rykket ind på gallerierne.

Tejns street art har, med hovedsæde i København, sat sit præg på de fleste europæiske storbyer. Gadekunsten har ofte form af politiske eller filosoferende unikaprodukter malet på papir og sat op med tapetklister et sted hvor de kommunikerer i samspil med lokalområdet.

Mest kendt er Tejn for sit varemærke "Lock On", som er skulpturer, typisk svejset i jern, låst fast i gadebilledet med en gammel cykellås, hvor de står udstillet, til en kommunal oprydder eller en kunstsamler kommer forbi med en boltsaks.

Refractive Distance: Lock-Ons by TEJN

Refractive Distance: Lock-Ons by TEJN | TEJN | Scoop.it

Not only the position, but also the scale and the color of these impelling acting presences escalate the dramaturgical effect, revealing and combating the contradictions that characterize contemporary lifestyles and our cankerous system of values. What is considered ‘waste’, both in terms of material as well as practice, and why?...
