John Kaye's "Nevermind" @ Goodspace, Sydney

Graffiti // Monday, July 06, 2015
John Kaye’s Nevermind examines memento mori under a new light – a representation of the freedom that comes with the uncertainty of the future. Kaye has transposed his experiences gained from living as a nomad into a series of souvenir style images, each work representing a different moment in time, working with acrylic, watercolour, aerosol and ink. Through his travels, Kaye has examined the opportunities that life hands us, and the importance of pursuing activities that fulfill us.

Maine-based sculptor and artist Jonathan Borofsky's public art pieces, Walking to the Sky, features 10 life-size people walking up a 30-meiter-tall-pole and has been installed permanently in several locations all over the world.

South Korean artist Yong Sung Heo this morning paints pale figures, seeking to examine the "inner psychological world" of young people today.

Nothing inside the books is relocated or implanted, only removed. The image and ideas that he reveals are used to expose alternate histories and memories.

"Human Dilatations," Photographs by Roger Weiss

Juxtapoz // Monday, July 06, 2015
Swiss photographer Roger Weiss' Human Dilatation series 'does not fear the marks of frailness of the body and its imperfections but rather encourages the female image to appear as a whole: a shape by itself, in a game of istortions that allows one to differently relate to the image, entirely detached from the sterotypical and hypocritical notion of beauty.'
