Yasuaki Onishi | Vertical Emptiness | 2013 ~ In Yasuaki Onishi's latest installation, tree branches are hung upside down from the ceiling, drizzled with strands of hot glue like spider silk, and covered with crystallized liquid urea.The delicate structure that connects ceiling to floor appears shagged with silver-white ice, standing in stark relief in front of a large black panel of glue and graphite.I feel this artwork gives the observer an misplaced sense of the location. .
'Tteia I, C' by Lygia Pape | Having worked in painting, printmaking, sculpture, dance, design, film, performance, and installation, Pape is one of the most influential Brazilian artists today. ‘Ttéia I, C’ (2002) represents her late and very ambitious research into three-dimensionality. Based on experiments she began in the late 1970s, these works are made of carefully lit gold threads appearing to be of cosmic immateriality.
