Dan Graham

bottom_img_031

Thanks to Spike’s recommendation, some of us went to see Dan Graham’s work at the Marian Goodman Gallery in NYC. Here’s a link to a selected slide show portfolio. The full-size pieces that we saw were particularly compelling for their reflectivity, the multiplicity and layered sense of space, and for the fine craft, material use and attention to detail. After seeing the gallery show, I would especially like to see his work exhibited outdoors in full exposure to sunlight, landscape, people and the elements.

Artificial Fog, Stroboscopes, Pulse Lights, Surround Sound and Video-Landscape

Kurt Hentschlager's Zee

Anyone working with fog, lasers, sound and immersion should look at Kurt Hentschlager’s work, especially ZEE, which was just exhibited in Pittsburgh: “ZEE is a ‘mind-scape’ in which artificial fog and stroboscopic light fully obscure the physical installation space, resulting in an almost complete disconnect from the without and offering an entry towards a surprise within.”

Also, relating to perception and phenomenology, take a look at SCAPE – a video-landscape work.

Temporary Site Installations in Downtown Pittsburgh

Seasons in Spiral

Seasons in Spiral

There have been a couple really interesting installations in Downtown Pittsburgh’s Cultural District, at the intersection of 7th and Penn. Here’s a link to a site with information about past installations. Alexandyr Brodsky’s PALAZZO NUDO (day and night experience) and Takamasa Kuniyasu’s SEASON IN SPIRAL (over time) were particularly compelling.

Liza’s proposal for Flagstaff Hill made me think of Kuniyasu’s work especially. You could walk inside the spiral, which was made of timber, and become completely immersed. The sculpture was temporary – in this case, for 3 years. It was meant to be experienced over time, during different seasons, etc.

Knot-Like Sculpture Closer to Home

In response to Talia’s post about the sculptor producing abstract knot pieces, I wanted to post a link to Dee Briggs’ sculpture.
