Will Kurtz

‘Using the empty gallery as a site on which to stage operatic, all-encompassing mise-en-scene, Kurtz makes an ambitious, multi-part figure installation that throws the facade off human nature – albeit in canine terms. Constructed of unlikely materials such as newspaper, glue, wire and wood, more than 20 dogs of every breed, size and color, strain and cavort off the leash of a single human handler, each rendered more expressively than the next.’ (via Mike Weiss Gallery)

I surprised I haven’t posted anything by Takashi Murakami here on Sweet Station yet. I guess I just assumed everyone knows about his work. Here’s a six metre high, blow up self-portrait sculpture of Takashi at the Museum of Islamic Art (Doha, Qatar).
