: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. […] *

:complete #fake :collection No.2

.

.ok, I know that I’m bit late with this edition but as I run for deadlines all d time I’ll upload my collection for d first month of this year. I had some problems with my lap top it’s brand new and empty now, so I needed to try to restore some of my old data that was pretty difficult as it was first time for me to face this problem.

:check d first #edition [here]

:In this collection we’ll see vivisection of d contemporary art nowadays that I count as important for my life and for d history of art in general. we see daily thousands and thousands of fake, plastic, simple, trashy art pieces that are funny and interesting only for a day. I decide here to share something that is connect with me, not so temporary .. with wide message, structure, idea, concept. follow my January #fake :collection and wait for d new one, this time will be for sure on d end of this small, tiny but freakingly cold month.

!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..
