:d `land of two rivers ~

Anselm Kiefer * [+]
Zweistromland / Land of Two Rivers
installation, mixed media, 1985-1989

[…] Throughout his career Kiefer was a maker of books, one-of-a-kind works like medieval manuscripts. His most monumental expression of this interest is “The High Priestess/Zweistromland/Land of Two Rivers”.

 

This sculpture consists of two bookcases (labeled after the rivers Tigris and Euphrates) containing about two hundred lead books, all on a superhuman scale. Some of the books were blank; others contained such things as obscure photographs of clouds or dried peas. It was a many layered work dealing with the artifacts of knowledge. […] *

!awesome piece of art from d leading Sydney-based Malaysian artist, Simryn Gill. she is amazing and pretty popular out there in d art circles, have had expos all around like in d Tate Modern, London d most important galleries in New York, Washington, Germany, Australia. .. etc.

.

:this art work gives u d ability to think, it’s a tricky thinking process that puts inside everyone who is willing to try, to give few answers, so many different topics as many as papers inside 🙂

Simryn Gill often use objects, books, collections, photographs and text pieces for her works and she explores the artist’s pursuit of meaning through materials, forms and ways of working, such as collecting, reading, archiving, arranging, casting and photographing.

:she creates using interactive ways, connects with d audience, animates them somehow. ..u can google her if u want to learn more about her works, she is interesting, I want to mention..

:before the first Monday of d year I want to ask u about d balance. do u practice balance?. ..I mean in reading books, u read them or very often u put them directly on d shelf as already finished. have u think about this object in this concept, have u measure ur reading?

Niko Economidis, New York based designer, made a conceptual piece designed to convey a deeper meaning beyond being simply a new place to leave a book.  Inspired by the shift of balance of a book, between the right and left, the weight change expresses the progress in reading.

The shelf is constructed with leather straps hanging from three chrome steel supports mounted on a wall, on which books are located in either end, securely fastened with metal buckles.
