Visual Overload

You never know quite where you are with the art of Tobias Rehberger, and a lot of that is down to his dizzying environments of black and white stripes and chevrons that purposely overload the brain with too much visual information. This “dazzle camouflage”, based on a technique used for disguising ships in World War One, has been applied to great swathes of the Schirn Kunsthalle Frankfurt; the venue is currently devoted to Home and Away and Outside, an overwhelming survey of the artist’s work from the last 20 years.

The disorientating flicker effect, which had our heads spinning at this Rehberger-designed New York bar, covers the furniture and sculpture in the museum’s main hall as a continuation of the artist’s 2009 work Was du liebst, bringt dich auch zum Weinen (what you love, also makes you cry). In marked contrast, the background to the second exhibition section is completely white, offering somewhere soothing to go and recover from your migraine, and a third, set up in the museum’s rotunda, houses the 2014 light-and-shadow sculpture Regret. Closing date for the exhibition is 11 May.

Li Hongbo: Statues in Motion

Li Hongbo: Statues in Motion sculpture paper

There’s been a tremendous amount of coverage online and off about artist Li Hongbo’s astounding paper sculptures constructed from stacks of layered paper that can flex and contort into eye-popping shapes. You can read previous posts here on Colossal for more detail about his work, but if you just can’t get enough, you’re in luck. Kid Guy Collective in collaboration with Eli Klein from Klein Sun Gallery, have finally documented the artist’s sculptures in a truly artful way. Shot at 240 frames per second, the video finally captures the fine details of Hongbo’s work for those of us unable to see them up close. Want even more? Here’s an extended cut.

UK-based artist Beccy Ridsdel creates fun yet strangely macabre interventions where ceramics have been surgically altered to reveal additional layers of detail. Where the metaphor of surgery might normally evoke blood and guts, Ridsdel instead reveals further floral patterns inside bone china plates and cups. The pieces are part of an ongoing examination regarding the perception of ceramics as craft or art. You can see more of her work over on Facebook and she has a few pieces for sale in her shop.

Barcelona-based sculptor Jordi Diez Fernandez works pimarily with welded steel fragments to create monumental human forms. His most recent piece is a tribute to civil engineer Ildefons Cerdà (top) who was largely responsible for designing the 19th-century extension of Barcelona called the Eixample, a memorial now on view in the municipality of Centelles. You can see much more of Fernandez’s work on his website and over on Behance.

Chandelier Produces a Wild Forest of Trees in Your Living Room



Forms in Nature is a chandelier, by artist Thyra Hilden and Pio Diaz, that casts a shadow of wild trees all around a room. The light source at the center illuminates the wild ball of gnarled “tree branches,” creating over-sized shadows from the floor to the ceiling. Like something out of a fairy tale, a bare room gets transformed into one with oversized shadows, engulfing anyone inside. After an overwhelmingly positive reaction from the public, HildenDiaz has decided that the light sculpture will soon be a part of a crowd-funding campaign on Kickstarter. Stay tuned.

In North America, Europe and many other parts of the world, bee populations have plummeted 30-50% due to colony collapse disorder, a fact not lost on artist Aganetha Dyck who for years has been working with the industrious insects to create delicate sculptures using porcelain figurines, shoes, sports equipment, and other objects left in specially designed apiaries. As the weeks and months pass the ordinary objects are slowly transformed with the bees’ wax honeycomb. It’s almost impossible to look at final pieces without smiling in wonder, imagining the unwitting bees toiling away on a piece of art. And yet it’s our own ignorance of humanity’s connection to bees and nature that Dyck calls into question, two completely different life forms whose fate is inextricably intertwined.

Born in Manitoba in 1937, the Canadian artist has long been interested in inter-species communication and her research has closely examined the the ramifications of honeybees disappearing from Earth. Working with the insects results in completely unexpected forms which can be surprising and even humorous. “They remind us that we and our constructions are temporary in relation to the lifespan of earth and the processes of nature,” comments curator Cathi Charles Wherry. “This raises ideas about our shared vulnerability, while at the same time elevating the ordinariness of our humanity.”

If you want to learn more I suggest watching the video above from the Confederation Centre of the Arts, and if you want to see her work up close Dyck opens an exhibition titled Honeybee Alterations at the Ottawa School of Art on March 3, 2014. A huge thanks to Gibson Gallery as well as Aganetha and Deborah Dyck for their help. All photos courtesy Peter Dyck and William Eakin.

Vienna-based designer Andreas Scheiger created this fun series of faux taxidermy heads using a bunch of found bicycle seats and handlebars. The pieces can serve as fun art objects, or as functional hooks for holding bags, coats, and even other bicycles. Several of them are for sale over on his website, or you can see how he did it and maybe attempt your own. (via Fubiz)

Update: Several of you have mentioned that these are pieces appear to be a modern interpretation of Picasso’s Tête de taureau.

New York-based sandcastle artist Calvin Seibert (previously) just returned from a 10-day trip to Hawaii where he completed a number of his abstract, geometric sandcastles. For the past 30 years Seibert has worked as a sculptor’s assistant and puts some of his acquired skills in construction and basic carpentry to use while executing these perfect, angular sand structures. You can see more of his recent work here.

One man’s trash is another artist’s treasure, or I think that’s how it goes. Sydney-based artist Freya Jobbins makes bizarre sculptures of human faces and chiselled physiques, as well as famous characters like The Terminator, Darth Vader, and Batman. What’s more amazing is her choice of material: hundreds of discarded doll body parts.

Flighty sculptures getting ready for lift-off with hundreds of butterflies

Flighty sculptures getting ready for lift-off with hundreds of butterflies

David Kracov’s works — he sculpts, paints and animates — commonly include butterflies. To him, the winged insect symbolizes the fragility and value of a child’s life, so it is no surprise his butterfly-propelled sculptures are especially inspiring. One such work, Reflections, was created in memory of the lives lost in the 9/11 tragedy and shows his signature butterflies rising up from the New York skyline where the Twin Towers once stood.
