🎨 Arte \ C. Parmiggiani 🎨 💡Avete mai visto un teatro di cristallo? A Diomira certamente. Insieme a cupole d'argento, statue bronzee e strade lastricate di stagno... Un teatro di cristallo? Vediamo... Si riavvolge il filo della memoria ed eccoci a Parma, nel 2006. All'interno del teatro ligneo dedicato a Bellona e alle Muse (impossibile anche solo immaginare lo splendore del Farnese completamente ricoperto da stucchi marmorizzati), si dipana un labirinto di cristallo, costruito e infranto per mano dell'artista Claudio Parmiggiani, a memoria della bomba incendiaria del 1944. Tensione palpabile, vibrazione luminosa, inusitata quiete. Resti muti di un'azione senza testimoni e spettatori... Teatro dell'arte e della guerra. • • • #italocalvino #cittainvisibili #invisiblecities #cristallo #claudioparmiggiani #teatrofarnese #parma #igersarte #igersart #arte #artecontemporanea #igerslibri #libri #operadarte #teatro #igersparma #bellona #muse #ioleggoperchè #ioleggoperche #romanzi #letteratura #librerie #visualculture #librichepassione #librichemania #continuiamoaleggere #ticonsigliounlibro #bookaddicted #lookingforarmilla
my new fav from IN FLUX 😍
I just had lunch with David LaChapelle...well with his thoughts and images in an interview by @oktobernight in the latest GUP. . . He has been guided by words of wisdom imparted by his Mother before she died, “stay in the light”. His image-making hopes to bring us there too.. . #davidlachapelle #gup #photooftheday #iconography #vision #visualculture #liveinthelight #paintwithlight #photography #photobooks #sight #worship #conceptqueen #punctumjunkie #conceptaware

/ Black Leaf . ne-10/17. Martin Rivers . Sliced off section of black felt top hat with faux pearl pin. . 🏴Black; the darkest shade, is the result of the absence or complete absorption of visible light. More than all the colour hues and shades on the visible light spectrum, black is deeply embedded in the history and presence of humankind. ___The agency of black derives from its rich history of meaning and value associated with humanity and its habitus (history, power, belief etc.) . . . . . . . #black #contemporaryart #readymade #contemporarysculpture #materialculture #contemporaryjewelry #3ddesign #design #martinrivers #contemporaryjewellery #contemporaryfashion #fashiontheory #criticalthinking #minimalist #minimalism #minimal #minimalart #visualculture #darkness #shadow #conceptualart #sculpture #conceptualjewelry #conceptualsculpture #daylight #workinprogress #photography #deconstructivist #artists #blackcolour
The Archimedean Point. . od-02/18. Martin Rivers . In philosophical enquiry the ‘Archimedean Point’ (Punctum Archimedis) describes a hypothetical vantage point from which one can objectively perceive the subject of enquiry, with a view of totality. The ideal of “removing oneself” from the object of study so that one can see it in relation to all other things, but remain independent of them is described by a view from an Archimedean point. . The expression comes from Archimedes, who supposedly claimed that he could lift the Earth off its foundations if he were given a place to stand, one solid point and a long enough lever. . . . . . #archimedes #archimedeanpoint #contemporaryart #appropriationart #ephemeralart #contemporaryphotography #contemporaryjewellery #contemporaryjewelry #philosophy #criticalthinking #speculativerealism #pin #minimal #minimalism #minimalist #minimalphotography #sculpture #minimalsculpture #conceptualart #martinrivers #conceptualjewelry #shadows #daylight #conceptualphotography #perspective #conceptualsculpture #abstraction #visualculture #photography #heuristic

Hanging out with local artists lately? What were their counterparts upto 400 years ago? Today's post is on sixteenth-century craftsmen and design. . The art historian Sujatha Meegama's recent article uses some striking examples of Lankan ivory caskets from museums across the world to show that "Lankan ivory carvers were as inventive and innovative as painters in the Mughal Empire and Japan, ivory carvers in Africa and the Philippines, and other artists from China to Latin America, in appropriating and transforming European motifs and forms." . These pieces are fascinating because they often moulded European templates (Tree of Jesse, Virgin and Child) but Lankan ivory carvers also used South Indian temple motifs such as lotus petal mouldings and lion motifs in their pieces. . How much can we recover about the lives, inspirations and artistic processes of craftspersons from centuries ago, when all we are left with are their products? . #prettythings #museums #materialhistory #objecthistory #visualculture #materialculture #kotte #kottekingdom #ivory #ivorycarvers #globaltrade #portugeseempire #spoilsofempire #discoversrilanka #lka #portugeselanka #lankanhistory #art #arthistory #sixteenthcenturystudies #antiques #gems #casket #renaissance #premodern

Shanghai artist Lu Yang’s Vimeo account has seen a lot of action recently. _ Lu’s latest work, “Electromagnetic Brainology” stems from a solo show at Beijing’s M WOODS museum, “Encephalon Heaven” that opened on Halloween. She expanded the project with a series of videos. _ One video shows her four animated deities dancing in place for seven minutes. Another blends Lu’s fascination with neurological procedures like transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) and the constructed, hyper-mediated world of East Asian visual pop culture. _ #mwoods #electromagneticbrainology #popculture #marsattacks #luyang #visualculture #sensoryoverload #tms #halloween @m__woods #contemporaryart #chinaart

Erotismo en el paisaje urbano. Unos labios negros entreabiertos se posan por encima de caminantes y conductores en Sonora, #Mexico . Esta pieza del fotógrafo japonés Daido Moriyama, Lips, es una de las obras itinerantes del proyecto alternativo, Sonora 128, de la galería @kurimanzutto. Proyectos como éste ayudan a artistas que buscan hacerse su propio camino. Moriyama, considerado "padre de la fotografía callejera" en Japón, inaugura un diálogo entre lo erótico y lo urbano. "Siempre he considerado que el mundo es un lugar erótico, conforme lo camino, mis sentidos se extienden y estoy atraído a un universo de cosas", comentaba Moriyama en una entrevista. #daidomoriyama #erotismo #sensualidad #eroticart #sensualart #provoke #bw_photography #kurimanzutto #arteurbano #urbanart #streetsnappers #visualculture #lips #kink #kinkart
