By Katharina Grosse, these huge, beautiful sculptural installations utilise their environment by being painted in situ making each set-up entirely unique. I feel torn between thinking of a martian landscape, or a Lovecraftian fifth dimension.
Kohei Nawa’s latest work, which headlined the Aichi Triennale in Nagoya, is a large-scale installation of billowing foam clouds. Nawa spent weeks experimenting with concoctions of detergent, glycerin and water so as to create a foam stiff enough to hold shape, thus creating his installation “Foam”. Visitors were allowed to walk through a gymnasium-sized space filled with ever-evolving foam shapes that, in Nawa’s own words, “should feel like [you’re] walking through clouds.”
Via archiemcphee: South Korean artist Oh Seung Yul creates mouthwatering hyper-realistic noodle dishes that are completely inedible but still all kinds of awesome. Made using synthetic resin, the noodles are held by actual pairs of chopsticks and dangle 12 feet above bowls containing beautifully rendered broth and other ingredients.
"Everything is articulated, from the individual noodles to the carrots and clams. Yul has considered even the gesture of slurping this food. He has colored the noodle mass in such a way that you feel a rush of broth dripping from the chopsticks."
3D Paintings by Shintaro Ohata | "Color perfect. At first glance, these painting seem perfectly great, but take a step back and watch the visual presentation as the sculpture compliments the work itself."
Steel Pond Studios | Portland, Oregon-based steel sculptor Robert Jefferson Travis Pond - Half of what I do is collecting materials. For me, the question is never where to start; it is always when to stop. It is a constant look beyond the object, beyond the form, to what is next. Each circumstance, or in this case, each piece, spontaneously connects to the next. This seemingly random assortment of metal dictates its future in a very fast and spontaneous manner. The sculpture decides for itself what it will look like and when it is complete.
