Sculptor, Installation

Location : Germany

 

 

 

 

Ursula von Rydingsvard (American, born 1942 in Deensen, Germany). She studied painting at the University of Miami, Coral Gables. Then she obtained a Masters of Fine Arts from Columbia University in 1975. The artist’s large-scale sculptures reveal traces of the human hand. Which suggest the earliest memories of being surrounded by wooden walls. Tools and utensils as a child living in wartime refugee and labor camps in Germany. After her family was forced to leave Poland. Von Rydingsvard creates his work from commercially machined cedar beams that are marked. Shaped by cuts in wood. Stacked, then glued together. These shapes can also be used for casting sculptures. In materials such as urethane resin. Copper and bronze. Von Rydingsvard’s organic and gestural works allude to the landscape. To the body and common utility items such as spoons, shovels and bowls.

Jean Pierre Raynaud

Visual Artist

Location : France

 

 

 

 

After completing his horticultural studies, Jean Pierre Raynaud began by making assemblages close to New Realism.

From 1963, with his white and red Psycho-objects. It combines a few simple elements (gauges, ladders and emergency shovels, road signs or flower pots). He tries to highlight the relationship between the mental world and the real world.

Frozen and distant. His work is presented as a vision of the world. Cruel certainly, but located beyond anguish and violence.
In 1974, Raynaud opened his blockhouse house to the public (two armored doors and a single window). Entirely lined inside with white earthenware tiles and constantly modified. For more than twenty years, the tiling became elsewhere. The same year, the theme of a series of works (Zero Spaces).

Visual Artist

Location : China

 

 

 

 

 

Cai Guo-Qiang was born in 1957 in Quanzhou, China. He was trained in stage design at the Shanghai Theater Academy from 1981 to 1985. His work has since crossed several mediums in art. In particular the drawing. The installation. Video and performance. Cai started experimenting with gunpowder in his hometown of Quanzhou. He continued to explore his properties while living in Japan from 1986 to 1995. This investigation eventually led to the development of his outer explosion events. Based on Eastern philosophy. Contemporary social problems as a conceptual basis. His works respond to culture and history. Then, establish an exchange between the spectators and the larger universe which surrounds them. His art and explosive installations are imbued with a force that transcends the two-dimensional plane to engage with society and nature.

Sculptor

Location : UK

 

 

 

 

 

Nike Ramage makes machines that move, or appear to move. Machines not useful but sculptural. With weaknesses and flaws. Ticks and squeaks. Too complicated and underperforming.

Some ask the viewer to put them in motion. Others have their own life. They are made from a motley collection. Disparate parts, encompassing lost and broken machine parts. As well as household items. They are machines born from ideas but bypassing utility. Machines steeped in the human condition. Absurd and uncertain.

Online Art Gallery HappenArt- August 28, 2020

 

 

 

 

 

Alain Lame is a visual artist born in Paris. He studied at the Louvre school.
He grew up in the 1980s and was inspired by the artistic atmosphere of the time. The 1980s were an era of growing global capitalism. Global political upheavals. Mass media. Unique wealth and music and fashion differences. All of this characterized by hip hop. Electronic pop music. This had a strong impact on the generation of artists that grew up during this time. The fall of the Berlin Wall at the end of the decade meant the end of the Cold War.

Alain, meanwhile, was studying influential art movements. They understood Neo Geo. The Pictures Generation and neo-expressionism. All these movements have taken a particular hold in Germany, France and Italy. Artists like Anselm Kiefer; Jörg Immendorf. Enzo Cucchi. Francesco Clemente and Julian Schnabel were key artists working during this period. Today, the online HappenArt Gallery presents a retrospective of the painter Alain lame, inspired by his time and by his numerous artist friends.

Installation

Location : Japan

 

 

 

 

Naoko Ito is a Japanese artist based in New York. His works, between installations. Videos and sculptures, have been exhibited in the United States and Japan. His new project “Urban Nature” is inspired by the relationship between man and nature.

Naoko cut the branches of a tree into several pieces to place them in glass jars. The tree is thus reconstructed through the glass. The use of these two elements symbolizes the tension between nature and culture. Naoko is also inspired by the way people try to tame nature. And this particularly in urban areas. Aisi, it is mastered to adapt to humans.

Hendrik Beikirch – ECB

Street Art

Location : Germany

 

 

 

 

German artist Hendrik Beikirch. Also known by its alias “ecb”, creates captivating works of documentary and fictional portraits that cross the personal and the private. Its distinctive monochrome murals. And his interior works for galleries and museums. Confront the spectators with subjects rich in stories which fascinate by their strength of personality. Both anonymous, everyday and seemingly enchanting. Each of the beikirch figures has a story to tell. More than just subjects, we find authentic characters in his works. Made all the more fascinating by their anonymity. the reduced color palette and the striking contrasts that characterize beikirch’s portrait underline the vulnerability of his subjects. While the scale of these works invites the viewer to reflect. On the relationship between the individual and society. The spectator and the subject. The public and the private.

Malin Bülow

Malin Bülow

Malin Bülow

Installation, Performance

Location : Swedish

 

 

 

 

The work of Malin Bülow, Swedish artist. Relates to human sculpture. Installation and performance, in a close relationship with the public. Malin Bülow creates large performative installations in situ. It emphasizes the skin of the dancers, which becomes a sculptural element of tension. The performers are thus the activators of his interventions, both sensory and claustrophobic.

Elastic Bonding.

Malin Bülow’s works are always linked to their exhibition context. The artist works mainly with two components. Elasticity and fluidity. Working vertically at Usines Fagor, his installations take on a monumental aspect. Elastic Bonding questions the inextricable link between architecture and the body. Fragmentary forms. Suspended, transform into sprawling performative sculptures. Like giant umbilical cords. They extend until they blend into the architecture.
Also interested in the static aspect that we find in classical sculpture. Malin Bülow plays on the ambiguity between the living and the non-living. The “recumbent” exhibits during the week are replaced on weekends by the presence of dancers. Very slowly, the latter, enclosed within this membrane, search for positions that analyze the tension. And elasticity in the body. The skin. Architecture and movement, a fragile balance between rigidity and flexibility.
