Sonja Hinrichsen examines urban and natural environments through exploration and research. As an artist, she feels responsible for addressing issues that our society tends to overlook or deny, especially negative impacts on the natural world. Her work manifests itself in immersive video installations, video performances and interventions in nature. His participatory project “Snow Drawings” engages communities around the world.

His work reflects environmental concerns and addresses our (humanity’s) relationship to the natural world. As we perceive it and interact with it.

The spiral.

“The choice of the spiral is no coincidence. The spiral is the movement of water that runs away in a siphon, nautiluses and snails have this shape. In all mythologies the spiral has had a meaning, our galaxy is a spiral… And what’s more, it’s unmissable! It is not so much the result that is important, she confides, it is the participation in the work! Creating your own path is already a work of art in itself. It is experimental art that cannot be claimed at the beginning of the creation of what the result will be. In addition, the work changes according to the color of the sky… It’s magic. -S. Hinrichsen.

Sculptor

The subject of numerous museum shows, Anders Krisár’s work, often focuses on the human body. Krisár’s sculptures often features or makes reference to the human form, exhibiting a preoccupation with formal rigor and abstraction. Using this exacting approach, he employs precision of form to create intensely personal, psychological landscapes.

Objects of simultaneous horror and beauty.

Krisár’s sculptures – immaculately produced, and often bear a deliberate blemish that is itself impeccably rendered. Are discomfiting, objects of simultaneous horror and beauty. The Birth of Us (Boy) features a child’s torso, marred by the indentation of two adult hand prints; in M the life size figure of a boy is split in two and then rejoined, so that a single figure becomes two halves, severed twins clasping hands. The violence that underpins both these sculptures is a recurring theme and is rendered with care and deliberation, so that it appears both aesthetic and inevitable. The sculptures are uncanny because of the meticulousness with which they are executed; according to Krisár, “I’m a perfectionist because I have to be, it’s not really a choice. And it’s not a striving for satisfaction, it’s rather to avoid pain.”

Carefully-chosen materials, clever use of scale and hearty doses of humour are just some of the ingredients in the works of Brazilian artist, Luiz Philippe Carneiro de Mendonça.

Carneiro was born in 1957 into a family with close links to the art world. His father was the Director of the Museum of Modern Art in Belo Horizonte during the 1960s and Carneiro was able to visit Alberto da Veiga Guignard’s studio in Ouro Preto and also live and study with Frans Krajcberg.

School of Fine Arts.

After graduating in Industrial Design from the School of Fine Arts, Fundação Universidade Mineira de Arte, Carneiro embarked on a career as a designer, first in mi Gerais and later Paris before settling in Rio de Janeiro during 1980s. In parallel, he developed his personal artistic practice, often with a witty use of found materials.

Dada and surrealism.

Carneiro’s early works show a clear link to his childhood growing up in the iron mill owned by his family. Iron, steel and stone are his chosen materials for many works, including giant-sized devices which pay tribute to navigators. Dada and surrealism are evident influences too: an ancient rusty spade is transformed into an elegant neck with the simple addition of a row of pearls while leather handles turn blocks of stone into impossible suitcases. The artist’s design background and love of the absurd come together in Untitled (Chair with Legs Crossed).

Art work.


Matsumoto’s work reflects the morphological transformations of our ever-evolving urban and ecological milieus, which could be attributed to a multitude of spatiotemporal phenomena influenced by socio-cultural constructs. They are created as visual commentaries on speculative changes in notions of societies, cultures, and ecosystems in the transient nature of constantly shifting topography and geology.

Jamie Isenstein (b. 1975, Portland) confuses subject and object in her work, which spans sculpture, drawing, and performance, often turning objects into bodies and bodies into objects. Bluring distinctions between performance and sculpture, often through use of her own body as ready-made object in her “inhabited sculptures,” and thereby questions the notion of “live” in her work Isenstein reflects on the concept of art living beyond its creator and the role of the artist’s hand, quite literally, within a work of art. Most often utilizing the lexicon of comedy and magic as metaphors for larger contexts.

Inhabited sculptures.

Isenstein’s inhabited sculptures are almost an absurd reversal where the artwork has co-opted the artist’s body, creating an anthropomorphized self-deprecated sculpture. While these sculptures rely on her body’s presence, Isenstein offers an equally compelling solution for when she is absent. In doing so, Isenstein’s performances never truly end but instead go into extended intermissions. This way, unlike most performance or endurance art that has a finite beginning and end, her performances become more like sculptures that last indefinitely.

Christian Marclay (American, b.1955) is a sculptor, video artist, and musician. He was born in California and raised in Geneva, Switzerland, by his American mother and Swiss father. Between 1977 and 1980, Marclay studied at the École Supérieure d’Art Visuel in Geneva; at the same time, he studied sculpture at the Massachusetts College of Art in Boston. In 1978, he studied as a visiting scholar at the Cooper Union in New York.

Performance Art.

Marclay expresses himself through Performance Art, sound, sculpture, and collage. He combines his love for music with his love for secondhand objects by molding these familiar things into unfamiliar ones. He was one of the first artists to bend and form sounds with a turntable to create new pieces. Previously, artists had linked songs together. Marclay has created unique and unexpected compositions since 1979, when he produced his Theatre of Found Sound.

Punk rock.

He developed an interest in punk rock and Performance Art while studying in Boston. The artist started singing and using mix tapes while performing with the other half of his musical duo, Kurt Hendry. Their lack of a drummer inspired Marclay to produce audio rhythm tracks that were accompanied by video rhythm tracks composed of cartoons or sex films on a loop. Marclay organized a festival in 1980 called Eventworks, where he explored the influence of rock music. He has also collaborated musically with Fred Frith, Zeena Parkins, Shelley Hirsh, Otomo Yoshihide, Arto Lindsay, and Sonic Youth, among others.

In Samuel Salcedo art irony mixes with the great sympathy to the humans. His realistically made sculptures show ridiculous, funny and some times touching heroes often show nuked. Despite of the small scale, Samuel’s works truly and deeply show all the complex of the human loneliness and confusion.

Irreal heads.

Another vector of Samuel’s art is giant irreal heads with the distorted features that might show offense. In the age of social media, when each of us could create his own fake image, the artist uncovers shortcomings and weaknesses of an ordinary people showing them in an unusual way. Samuel explains: “I like to play with the image of the mask, to show the look that hide something or on the other hand show several emotions at the same time… My art is a reflection of ourselves, how we see each other and ourselves”.

Lucy McRae.

Artist Lucy McRae leads a multi disciplinary, art-research studio investigating the impact future technologies have on human evolution. In parallel to her gallery and museum-focused art practice she thrives as a director, a maker, in the writer’s room and in the lab.

Human intimacy.

Boldly staring down the status quo, Lucy pioneers a new story for how future technologies will fundamentally alter human intimacy. Reproduction, spirituality, biology and wellness culture. Shining light on the ethical implications of genetic engineering. Her prophetic aesthetic is flung far from archetypal tropes. Creating nostalgia for a future about to happen. Lucy’s work diversifies the predictive voices we traditionally call ‘science’ and ‘technology’. Through designing hypothetical worlds that use speculation as a tool to provoke an exploration of ideologies and ethics about who we are, and where we are headed.

Bart Hess.

The work of Bart Hess is of the most tactile and intuitive nature. He first delved into instinctive textiles when studying at the Design Academy Eindhoven, where he created A Hunt for High Tech, a collection of materials that mimicked the bestial outer layers of unfamiliar hybrid species, accompanied by an evocative film that brilliantly brought his concepts to life.

Relation to the human body.

Over the past ten years, Hess has developed an impressive roster of work. He has pinned, stretched, slimed and scraped materials in relation to the human body, and collaborated with the likes of Lucy McRae, Nick Knight, Lady Gaga, Iris van Herpen and Walter van Beirendonck. Hess feels that our bodies are increasingly becoming a platform for sensitive and interactive technology. And has constantly exposed the intimate relationship materials have upon our skin. “It felt like a natural instinct for me to start working on the body.

My own skin.

When I create a new design I always place it on my own skin even-though it originally was created as, for example, a flooring material. The fascinating thing about it for me is the combination of a skin and a material. By using a material on the body that is not the body’s own, but making it look like it could possibly be. I create a tension between the body and material.”
