Sculpture After Sculpture

@ Moderna Museet, Stockholm
Group Show by Katharina Fritsch, Jeff Koons and Charles Ray

A focused examination of thirteen masterworks, Sculpture After Sculpture begins with iconic works from the late 1980s and early ’90s that highlight the artists’ early relationships to the commodity and the readymade. The exhibition unfolds in a series of startling juxtapositions that trace the development of their practices from the found to the made, from the performed to the embodied. The show’s highlights include Koons’s celebrated Michael Jackson and Bubbles, 1988, a porcelain-and-gilt confection depicting the late Pop legend with his pet chimpanzee; Ray’s two-ton aluminum Tractor, 2005; and Fritsch’s acid-yellow apparition Madonnenfigur / Madonna, 1987, that famously materialized on a busy square in Münster, Germany, on the occasion of Skulptur Projekte Münster.

Dates: 11th October 2014 – 18th January 2015

HARSH MAJICAL

@ Mondo Gallery, Austin
Solo Show by We Buy Your Kids

“Sonny Day and Biddy Maroney, the faces behind Sydney-based We Buy Your Kids, are known for their colorful, off-beat design style. They combine hand-made and digital techniques to create their work, often experimenting with color, shape and texture. Their influences include a shared love of comic books, skateboarding, music and film.

The show’s title, “Harsh Majical,” came from a direct English translation of a Chinese description of WBYK’s work. “We felt it might sum up the final outcome, but more importantly describes the fun we’ve had working on this collection.” It will include prints from films previously tackled by Mondo artists, such as Alien and The Fly, but will also introduce some new titles such as White Men Can’t Jump and Thrashin’.” — Mondo

Panic Buying!

Next up in my Philippines creative scene series is Everywhere We Shoot the moniker of husband and wife team Ryan Vergara and Garovs Garrovillo.

Their practice is a strong mix of Design, Motion & Photography and this coming Thursday July 3rd is the opening of their exhibition ‘Panic Buying’.

Everywhere We Shoot’s obsession with grocery items continue in their second solo exhibit, Panic Buying!. The exhibit’s theme is inspired by Everywhere We Shoot’s shopping habits as a married couple. While most people panic-buy for security reasons, they fall into the habit when enticed by attractive packaging and ridiculous promos.

If last year’s Foods showcased food in its most awkward glory – stripped bare of artifice and set against a bright backdrop, Panic Buying! reimagines the frenzied atmosphere in a grocery store and the delirious state a shopper gets when exposed to this setting. A series of light boxes with aluminium lining are put together to mimic a Juice & Dairy section, but a closer look reveals distorted and multiplied packaging labels – an interpretation of the confusion when presented with too many choices. The products that were taken during the hoarding were shaken out of their packaging and haphazardly styled, resulting in a colorful, visually striking mess.

It’s been a yearly tradition for Everywhere We Shoot to release “Super Limited Edition” merchandise. This year, they’re launching a special sculpture exclusively for the exhibit: a pile of leftover trash shaped in resin and coated with metallic paint. After all, it’s what Everywhere We Shoot does best – recognizing beauty in the most unlikely objects. (Words by Sunshine Reyes)

Four Fish of The Apocalypse

Breeze Block Gallery, Portland
Solo Show by Greg Eason

“God – What you done?

Greg – I used religious and apocalyptic imagery to deconstruct The Book of Revelation – Chapter 6 of the King James Bible.

God – Why?

Greg – It’s a good read, and I find a lot of inspiration within it. I’ve always enjoyed religious imagery – it’s quite beautiful, and powerful.

God – Hmmm, okay. But, there are no fish in that bit of text.

Greg – Think so.

God – Nop.

Greg – Sorry.

God – Don’t do it again.

Greg – Okay, can’t promise anything though.

God – Bye.

Greg – Bye.” — Greg Eason
