Elmgren and Dragset

Great installation work by Danish/Norwegian art-duo Elmgren and Dragset. Their works meet the categories of art, architecture and design, and they explore and redefine space and its numerous possibilities of definition and function. Via Ignant.

Signing out

During my vacation the next three weeks it's going to be very quiet here, but everything will be back to normal in August! I'm signing out with a small collection of words, sayings and signs. First 7 photos are picks from Andrew Harlow – the last two is from "Promise the Moon" – a series of 25 limited edition silkscreen prints produced by artist Mads Lynnerup and commissioned by Playtype. The prints are inspired by store signs, seen by Lynnerup in his neighborhood in Brooklyn, New York. The exhibition is on display in Playtype Concept Store in Copenhagen from July 7th – July 30th 2011. I'm in for "Rent tuxedo's..." and "Psychic reader.."
Have a wonderful summer – and a lot of ice-creams!

Found Wood Sculptures

Love these geometric wooden sculptures by Vancouver based artist Aaron Moran. Some found wood, paint in beautiful colors et voilá! Maybe I should steal my son's collection of found wood and make my own FWS (found wood sculpture) in my holiday...Via The Jealous Curator.

"Control is always what we do not have. This is the human condition"

... says Italian artist Esther Stocker. Her work provokes uncertainties in the viewer, putting their sense of control into constant doubt, via the perception games in her paintings and installations. Very fascinating work! Via BrownPaperBag.
