Monumental Ai Weiwei Sculpture to be Installed in London
26/08/2015
Monumental Ai Weiwei Sculpture to be Installed in LondonInfluential Chinese artist Ai Weiwei’s newly-designed monumental sculptural installation “Forever” (2014) will be installed in front of London’s iconic “Gherkin” office building between September 4-13 as part of the fifth edition of Sculpture in the City, a yearly public exhibition of cutting-edge contemporary art situated in and around London’s Square Mile. “Forever” is a giant assemblage of stainless-steel bikes which the artist has configured in ever-expanding modular shapes and layers of geometrically stacked and fused individual frames, creating a single structure that echoes the layers and intricacies of the people and communities of China and will mirror the daily hustle and bustle of the City of London. Ai Weiwei said: “The Forever bicycles were a brand from when I was growing up. In our village there were no real roads and we always had to ride bikes to carry things. I thought they would be a good public sculpture because people relate to bikes. They’re designated for the body and operated with your body. There are a few things today that are like that.” The installation of “Forever” coincides with the Royal Academy’s landmark Ai Weiwei exhibition which opens on September 19. It is the last of the 14 works by 13 internationally renowned artists to be installed as part of Sculpture in the City 2015, which also includes works by the likes of Damien Hirst, Sigalit Landau, Bruce Beasley, Ekkehard Altenburger, and Tomoaki Suzuki.

Chilean Artist Collaborates with Melissa on Shoes Inspired by Ex-Girlfriends
25/08/2015
Chilean Artist Collaborates with Melissa on Shoes Inspired by Ex-Girlfriends At an exhibition at the 2013 Miami Art Basel, a gold high-heeled shoe sculpture depicted a man, resembling the Greek titan Atlas, as the heel, staggering under the weight of the rest of the structure. Another shoe, in black, featured an especially spiky stiletto heel and brass knuckles on the sole, which, if picked up and held like a brick, could prove a deadly weapon. Yet another, this time in white, resembled a glass of milk spilling and crashing to the floor; elsewhere, a yellow honeycomb wedge heel looked almost too good to eat. With amusing names like Gold Digger, The Boss, Honey, Cry Baby, The Virgin, Heartbreaker, The Rock, and more, the shoes were actually 3D-printed footwear belonging to a project called “12 Shoes for 12 Lovers,” created by Chilean contemporary artist Sebastian Errazuriz. Inspired to make these sculptures in homage to a dozen of his ex-girlfriends, they were originally exhibited at Brazilian footwear brand Melissa’s pop-up store in Miami during Miami Art Basel, with some later traveling to the Kunsthalle Rotterdam, the Carnegie Museum of Art in Pittsburgh, and the Museum of Art and Design in New York. Now, Brazilian plastic footwear brand Melissa has produced two of those styles — “Gold Digger” (depicting the man with the shoe on his shoulders) and “The Boss” (featuring the brass knuckles) — in limited editions, and they are now on sale in its Galeria Melissa flagships in New York, London and São Paolo. In his work, Errazuriz, 28 and based in New York, likes to appropriate everyday icons with a conceptual and poetic twist, creating pieces that make one look twice. His series of Bird Lamps explore how art and design relate to time, beauty and functionality, while a recent public art piece titled “A pause in the city that never sleeps” — comprising a looped black and white video of the artist yawning that was broadcast on 50 large screens in Times Square — sought to create a contagion of yawns amongst New Yorkers in a moment of pause in the city that never sleeps. Blouin Lifestyle caught up with Errazuriz on “12 Shoes for 12 Lovers”: Do you have a shoe fetish? What gave you the idea to use footwear as a medium to express what you wanted to say?I don’t have a shoe fetish. [Before] I started this project, I had never paid much attention to women’s shoes or their feet; today I find myself looking down at the floor constantly to check what they are wearing! It’s amazing how shoes become an extension of your personality, and maybe more than any other garment, it is the shoe that can offer a great insight into a person’s interests and style. How did the idea to collaborate with the Melissa brand, specifically, come about?I met the representatives of Melissa U.S. years ago at Art Basel. They liked my art work and in turn introduced me to the director of Melissa Worldwide. I showed them some sketches of an idea I had for a plastic melting shoe, and it all started from there. How does designing shoes differ from other sculptures or projects you typically work on?Each project has its own restrictions and learning curves. In the case of shoes, we have to be very careful to offer both support and comfort, which need to be balanced with the sculptural shape. So the challenge is to create a form that is both engaging and beautiful, yet can also be worn on a daily basis for years to come. What are the similarities?At the end of the day, a design is always the translation of an idea. If you are creating a shoe, an aeroplane or a sculpture, you are basically trying to translate an idea into a physical object. Have you pissed off any of these ex-girlfriends with this project? Not really. They understand that it is a fun, tongue-in-cheek project that is ultimately an homage. They know the hard work that went into each shoe and feel happy that one of their exes would write a story and make a piece of artwork for them. [Plus,] I was careful to change their names to protect their identities, and make sure their faces are not shown. The limited-edition shoes are now on sale at:Galeria Melissa New York, 102 Greene St, New York, NY 10012Galeria Melissa London, 43 King St, LondonGaleria Melissa São Paolo, Rua Oscar Freire 827, Jardim Paulista, São Paulo To view all the original shoes in “12 Shoes for 12 Lovers,” click on the slideshow.

Venice Film Festival to Premiere Antoni Muntadas Art Film
25/08/2015
Venice Film Festival to Premiere Antoni Muntadas Art FilmThe Venice Film Festival will host the premiere of a new video work by Barcelona-born, New York-based multimedia artist Antoni Muntadas, one of the early pioneers of conceptual and media art. Titled “Dérive Veneziane,” the film proposes a different, alternative side of the stereotyped, cliched Venice – a hidden Venice, an unknown Venice, a mysterious Venice. Drawing inspiration from the Situationists’ derive, a theory described by Guy Debord as “a mode of experimental behavior linked to the conditions of urban society: a technique of rapid passage through varied ambiances, “Dérive Veneziane” takes viewers on a strange and surreal nighttime boat ride through Venice’s iconic canals where they encounter the unexpected and the unanticipated. “After 10 years spending time in Venice I start to discover a different Venice – the Venice by night,” says Muntadas. Evoking notions of darkness, loneliness, discovery, loss, intrigue, and phantasmagoria, “Dérive Veneziane” seeks to “modulate reality by creating a disorientating undertow and a keen awareness of terroir.” “A series of resulting tableaux precipitate a new awareness of this urban environment as it is transformed by darkness,” Muntadas explains. “Removing all predictable daytime paths, this wandering mise‐en‐scène gives rise to a new awareness. Venice by night is stimulating, along the lines of what Honoré de Balzac described as flânerie or ‘the gastronomy of the eye.’” Over a career spanning four decades, Antoni Muntadas has been creating projects that provoke critical reflection on key issues in the configuration of contemporary experience. His aim is to detect and decode the control and power mechanisms through which hegemonic ways of seeing are built, and in the process explore the decisive role played by the mass media in this process. Dérive Veneziane will be screened in the Movie Village at the Palazzo del Casinò from September 1-12 as part of the Venice Film Festival Trailer for Dérive Veneziane by Antoni Muntadas.
