Armory Show / 2017 installation. This is quite amazing…

As always with the big art fairs you have to wade through the bad and ugly to find the good (or in my case something with a quality transcendence).

A couple of works that stick (way) out from the pack from the Parcours Projects at Art Basel 2016 (which are all the big installation works all over town). The Allan McCollum Shapes Project Spinoffs 2005-2016 is a real knockout as well as Bernar Venet’s Arcs in Disorder

With Anselm Kiefer now moving past 70 years old he seem to be even more consumed with time and the constant destruction and renewal of life itself. His production and energy seem to be at all time peak given what this wonderful video by Art Documentaries gives us. Not only do we get to finally see his incredible studios but also his humor, generosity and the power of what one can do with vast amounts of money coupled with extraordinary lines of thinking.

Here is a man who’s thoughts were once translated in paint, lead and straw are now expressed in his grand palace’s of the mind. Every artist who thinks they are an artist should view this film and start all over from the beginning – or just give up – as there is no one I can think of doing work on this scale of shear magnitude, raw talent and intellect.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Anselm Kiefer Documentary

Olafur Eliasson is part artist and part mad scientist. He is a very curious guy and manages to consistently makes incredible objects and environments. This video is about turning a massive hand made metallic sphere in the studio but the real magic begins after the job is done and the thing begins to spin….

His current exhibition sadly ( if you live in America ) is in Europe at the Langen Foundation in Germany.
