Sometimes, if you are out of the main stream, sunday could be in black&white. Like in this T-Shirt
The Museum of Life
Irish Pavillon at Biennale Arte 2015 in Venice. Sean Lynch tells us the story of ancient myths and modern life. I loved this issue. One more thing: the temples, sculptures, in ancient Greece and Rome were full of colours, like Indu temples nowadays.
Plastificando la realtà
Alla Biennale Arte 2013, ancora in corso, particolare impressione ha fatto l’opera di Pawel Althamer. L’autore polacco ha fatto dei calchi con le facce dei veneziani e poi le ha riempite e adattate con delle plastiche (il padre aveva una fabbrica di questi materiali). Il risultato è suggestivo.
Bella installazione di Luca Ruzza e Arnold Dreyblatt: due artisti che restano sotto i riflettori di questo blog. L’invito come al solito è andare oltre e cercare di capire come si possono evolvere arte e musica nel terzo millennio.
Old instruments, new instruments
An interesting interview with Arnold Dreyblatt. I appreciate a lot this artist. He is not just a composer but a video artist (and above all a web artist).
Here is his site. On Youtube you can listen his music. LIke this
Intervista – Interview
Mi piace questo modo di intervistare gli artisti! Vorrei poterlo fare con i serissimi musicisti. Difficle trovarne qualcuno disposto a mettersi in gioco. Forse ho conosciuto Mauricio Kagel quando era troppo grande per queste cose. Forse anche io dovrei esserlo… Provocare i provocatori, ma ponendo domande intelligenti. Non facendo spazzatura in stile televisivo.
I like this way of making interview to artists. I wish I could do the same with musicians but they are too serious for that stuff. It is difficult to find someone disposed to get involved. Maybe I met Mauricio Kagel too late. He was too old. Maybe I should be old too… I wish provoke provocative people, but with good questions. Not like the garbage we watch in tv.
Dedicato a Denis Versweyveld
I met this artist in Rome. I was so curious to see his opera and so I discovered his website:
This is what he wrote:
I have been intrigued with connecting common still life objects to columns, tables, posts, etc, to present these items as both sculpture and monument. The old cemetery that abuts my property has head stones and obelisks that are simple and direct. These monuments, and the architectural forms, details and materials used in our early 19th century home and studio have influenced and inspired my work. The timbers used in the building, the joinery, the textural quality of plaster and lath and the way these materials receive light are all part of what I respond to.
I like this artist and his way of thinking of time
