Balloon Bench by H220430

This bench was visually inspired by the feeling of floating that the main character felt in the French movie, “Le Ballon Rouge”(1953). In reality the bench is suspended from the ceiling by 4 anchors concealed by the balloon shapes. This creates the illusion of the bench being lifted by balloons. Click here for the link.

The Basement Stacks by Wary Meyers

Books breaking through the (faux) wall downstairs, referencing the “basement stacks” every library has. In this case it’s as if those stacks had been sealed up during some remodel, and are anthropomorphically breaking through, referencing the old library, history, roots, poltergeists… Created for the VIA Advertising Agency, which recently renovated and moved their offices into the old Baxter building, which served as Portland’s public library from 1888 until the 1960s.

Damián Ortega (b. 1967, Mexico City) currently lives and works in Berlin. His work explores specific economic, aesthetic and cultural situations and in particular how regional culture affects commodity consumption. He began his career as a political cartoonist, and his art has the intellectual rigour and sense of playfulness often associated with his previous occupation. He creates sculptures, installations, videos and actions inspired by a wide range of mundane objects, from golf balls and pickaxes to bricks, rubbish bins and even tortillas, all subjected to what has been described as Ortega’s characteristically “mischievous process of transformation and dysfunction.”



Too Beautiful To Be True

The installation Too beautiful to be true by Meike Harde ‘was developed on the occasion of the exhibition Fine Arts in Saarbrücken, Germany. Masks which picture the eye- and mouth area correspond to the current ideal of beauty. When put on, however, they cause a contortion of the face. This is meant to show that artificially produced beauty is not always beautiful; instead it can evoke the very opposite. The pictures with the masks should be allegorical for effect of artifically produced beauty. Link here.
