:keep ur meditation

.

.

:I found this sculpture, installation very attractive. even that is bit like trash art this means a lot to me. not very rare when u do meditation, d Buddhist one u need to keep keep ur eyes half open/ close and in that state, u start feelin’ sleepy and ur head will fells like fallin’ down.

Zhang Huan is conceptual artist that shows this megalomaniac view of this important religion for d contemporary era. a lot of people from d west civilization start being interested in d Eastern philosophy after a lot of people start promoting d idea via arts, culture etc.. This artist is creating art works that are reflecting his tradition also as some other works that are totally different from d series of photography that u’ll see here. donkeys, naked people, performances.. u need to check his works for sure.

this gigantic aluminum piece is meant to deteriorate and crumble as time passes. “To me, ashes carry unseen sedimentary residue, and tremendous human data about the collective and individual subconscious,” Zhang says. “As time goes by, the environment will affect the work, as the floor will tremble with movement, ash Buddha will also change and fall into piece. The work questions what is Buddha. And since all is void, will ash lie still?

Zhang Huan, is a Chinese artist from the southeast province of Henan.  Studying from many different Chinese art styles, Zhang Huan portrays has presented his art in very unique and different ways. Many of his works usually include or incorporate the human body in many masochistic or emotionally moving positions.  Zhang Huan’s style may be considered strange and demeaning to some, especially to the Chinese art culture which follows very different standards.  Zhang strayed from the traditional Chinese brush painting and calligraphy early in his art career being influenced by his resentment towards the Chinese Communistic government and the influence of Western arts. Zhang has worked with a variety of art forms including sculpting, performing art, and oil painting. Some of his most well known works are his performance arts which included: “To Raise the Water Level in a Fishpond, 12 Square Meters, 65 Kilograms, and To Add One Meter to an Anonymous Mountain.” Many of these performance arts were self abusive, something Zhang has since left behind.

:RIP Sir Mike Kelley [1ox for d madness]

.

.I just heard this bad news from friend of mine L.P. Ponor about d apparent suicide of d famous contemporary artist Mike Kelley [1954 – January 31, 2012 or February 1, 2012]. He is/ was attractive with his works, controversial, as this last information is actually.

.
Kelley’s work involved found objects, textile banners, drawings, assemblage, collage, performance and video. He often worked collaboratively and had done projects with artists Paul McCarthy, Tony Oursler and John Miller. Kelley was often associated with the concept of abjection.” [from wikipedia]

:Episode #117: Mike Kelley sets the record straight about being called a “bad boy” throughout his career, describing the shifting tastes of critics and artists towards abject art in recent years.

.

.

Mike Kelley’s work ranges from highly symbolic and ritualistic performance pieces, to arrangements of stuffed-animal sculptures, to wall-sized drawings, to multi-room installations that restage institutional environments (schools, offices, zoos), to extended collaborations with artists such as Paul McCarthy, Tony Oursler, and the band Sonic Youth. His work questions the legitimacy of ‘normative’ values and systems of authority, and attacks the sanctity of cultural attitudes toward family, religion, sexuality, art history, and education. He also comments on and undermines the legitimacy of the concept of victim or trauma culture, which posits that almost all behavior results from some form of repressed abuse. Kelley’s aesthetic mines the rich and often overlooked history of vernacular art in America, and his practice borrows heavily from the confrontational, politically conscious “by all means necessary” attitude of punk music.

.

.. I prefer in this case to make photo story, His work speaks more then what I can say in d moment.. big lost for d history of contemporary art, I don’t see reason why he’ve done this but anyway this are works that will stay as respected perspectives in d conceptual arts.
.

.

:I don't know why but I specially like this. ..psychedelic! ;)

.

.

.he deserves more words from me, but I am pretty sure that during this year I’ll make observation of his master pieces, there are a lot of missing projects here. .. this is just to show d respect for this artist! Rest In Peace Sir & thanks for all d art madness!

:ORIGAMIBIRO, what’s that?!

[play d video & read]. ..actually WATCH d video!

Imagine music and video playing a game together. And telling stories at the same time. That’s what it’s like to experience a performance by audio-visual collective Origamibiro.
The collaborative trio merge found objects, unorthodox contraptions, multi instrumentalism and persistence of vision to create an atmosphere both nostalgic and otherworldly.

This is amazing work. Master piece of art and music. Video that makes waterfall of inspiration, soft storm of ideas. They make perfect combination of all d instruments, tech, materials & thoughts. @ponor is person [friend] in d web that can make u truly happy with her findings. Thank u for sharing this, it’s good start, first step for exploring more from their work.

– Is this d future turned ON? :awesome story covered with deep sense for d presence.. for d contemporary age in which we live. Is this d new age wave?! If this is d new sound comin’ out of our brains I definitely vote for IT! organic notes, tranquility vibes like produced from our soul, atmosphere that is full of joy. all at all pretty silent experimental, but silent as music characteristic not as music. d music is full with elements, they put a lot of work in every second that is played there.

So, ORIGAMIBIRO is a multi-practice audio visual artist collective. started out as a solo music project by Tom Hill in 2007 with the release of Cracked Mirrors and Stopped Clocks, Origamibiro has since become a live audio-visual collective comprised of fellow musician Andy Tytherleigh and video artist, Jim Boxall – aka The Joy of Box. The trio employ multiple instruments, hi and lo-fi technologies and an array of unorthodox objects and mixed media, including guitars, typewriters, infra red cameras, double bass, ukulele and bowed electric guitar.

Through their studio experiments and live performances, Origamibiro have strived to produce music and images that are beautiful, generative and organic. They have fused their respective backgrounds together: bringing an intricate and diverse selection of instruments, elements of expanded cinema, soundtrack music, found objects and unorthodox devices.
