Flow by Baptiste Debombourg

Baptiste Debombourg’s solo exhibition at the Centre d’Art Actuel l’Oeil de Poisson in Québec showcased Flow. The work – which is made entirely from car windscreens – is meant to mirror the devastating effects of mass consumption. Flow’s cumulative mass of materials is arranged in such a way that it resembles a giant wave – much like those in apocalyptic films such as 2012 or The Day After Tomorrow. Debombourg invites the audience to question society and self-induced finiteness. Do we swim in a sea of windscreens? Or do we remain under the glass, suffering as if trapped beneath sheets of ice?’ (via Frame)

“We have been working together since 2006, hand-crafting & publishing our original woodcut prints from our studios in Pittsburgh, PA. We make traditionally crafted woodcut prints by carving original drawings in low relief on blocks of 3/4″ birch plywood. Once carved, these blocks are rolled up with ink and printed onto archival paper to create the finished artworks.” – Paul Roden and Valerie Lueth of Tugboat

Brazilian artist Ernesto Neto was born, raised, and continues to live in Rio de Janeiro, a place commonly associated with pleasure. His installations are made of stretchy, stocking–like material and loose, transparent scrims and are often filled with aromatic spices or malleable Styrofoam pellets. Suspended from the ceiling or attached to the walls at acute angles, Neto’s installations cry out like sirens to be stroked, caressed, and entered. Neto explains that he believes in a sensual body through whose movement we connect with the world. A fusion of the mind and the body occurs in his conceptually tight and aesthetically pleasurable sculpture. (via Berkeley Art Museum)

Jan van Oost – Born 1961 in Deinze (Belgium). Lives and works in Ghent. The Flemish artist, who finds in the symbolism of Wiertz, Spilliaert and Ensor his own linguistic antecedents, lives the pressing presence of Death and represents it, since his first works, through conceptually minimal metaphors, like this broken mirror – where balls are still sticked – which holds the memory of the past.

” These paintings speak to forbidden thoughts and desires and also suggest that what is hidden and forbidden inside the painting is ultimately denied to the viewer. What the paintings yield is an intimacy of time and place that meanders through rich details and nuanced perplexity – bafflement being as necessary to the experience of viewing as is delicate reasoning.” – Jennifer Nehrbass
