Cyprien Gaillard built a pyramid out of 72.000 bottles of beer at KW Institute for Contemporary Art, Berlin. Participants were free to enter and consume as much as the Turkish beer Efes as they wanted. The work refers to the “the concept of displacement and a tourist colonialism” of previously artifacts which were relocated from other countries to Berlin.

When I’m not sitting in front of a computer, I’m always looking for something creative to do. We always have bananas in the house so then, I thought maybe I could draw on them but it wasn’t easy as I thought it would be. I kept puncturing the skin with my pen. So I came up with the idea of using a safety pin instead (something sharp and pointy to use at the time), similar to what my tattoo artist friend did when he sort of showed me how to tattoo. I spend half an hour to 2 hours on each piece. After they are completed, I photographed and eat them. It’s fun! You guys should try it some time. Click here for more.

Sigalit Landau

Sigalit Landau has been scratching the surfaces for over two decades. But the bruises are still open; the pain doesn’t seem to ease. She spreads salt crystals on open injuries, blend them in sugar, cover them in papier-mâché, immerse them in the dead sea. But their bloody presence is always here. Landau’s work is of a bridge maker. [Un]consciously looking for new and vital materials to connect the past to the future; the west to the east; the private with the collective; the sub-existential to the Uber-profound; the found objects to the deepest epic narratives and mythologies.

Australian artist Andrew Rogers has spent the last 14 years bouncing between 13 countries on all seven continents, working with over 6,700 people, creating sculptures in deserts, glaciers, gorges, city centers, national parks and mountain ranges. His works are hyper-local, constructed of earth and rocks culled from indigenous geological materials, following the character of each location’s landscape, with imagery based on the folklore of the region.

Move Along, Nothing to See Here

Cai Guo-Qiang: Move Along, Nothing to See Here, takes its title from the phrase used by police and other authority figures to deter onlookers from lingering at accidents and other “spectacles.” The work consisted of two 12 foot-long crocodiles cast in resin, realistically painted, and pierced with several thousand sharp objects—knives, forks, nail clippers, and the like—that were confiscated at airport-security checkpoints in New York. The sculpture elicits a two-fold sense of menace: the threat represented by these powerful and dangerous animals is compounded by the violence of the attack on them. This is one of a number of works—tigers pierced by arrows, exploding cars—in which the artist responds to terrorism (here, specifically, to 9/11). Cai has described his approach as “a frank look at society today and cultural/political issue we have to deal with.” (via Brown University)
