Was this what Lionel Ritchie meant? Oh, what a feeling... to be dangling/made of cement from the ceiling? You have to really say that quick to make it work. Inside the EBC office in central Prague, Czech artist Michal Trpák, created an installation of cement figures dangling from the ceiling in a piece called Slight Uncertainty. Is the uncertainty that they will fall? Stunning, in a very Kafka-esque sort of mundane bizarreness.

Nicola Yeoman moved to London in 2001 and worked at the Guardian as a picture editor whilst studying furniture at Guildhall University. Her combined love of photography and her practical skills as a designer led to an accidental career as a set designer. Now, at first glance at least, it is her eye for the theatrical, honed and developed in this latter role, that most informs her current artworks.

A stunning series of wood sculptures (more like wood reformations and morphings) by Korean sculptor Jaeyho Lee. We like to think that these just magically appear in the woods, and an unsuspecting hiker just comes across them and begins to believe in UFOs. But alas, Lee is behind the work, and both in gallery and in nature, they are awe-inspiring.

Lidó Rico suffers and, as in his paradoxical imaginary, he enjoys building his own body, his process has a little bit of performance or action painting.(45) What we ha ve isn’t the remaining, and nor the process is something unessential, on the contrary, immersion and the final sculptural body, the act of getting into plaster and the figure coming out of the wall are, in all senses, the same work of art....

201 Days is the documentation of physical sensations felt by the creator Katie Lewis. Using simple tools like pins, thread and a pencil she mapped her sentiments on a invisible grid. Each section of the grid on the wall is correlated with a different part of the body. Every time she felt a sensation in a particular area on her body, she documented the feeling onto the corresponding place on the grid with a pin and the date.

Normally we would think a room full of hundreds or thousands of balloons would be noisy and annoying, but not when German artist William Forsythe is at the helm. The site-specific work, Scattered Crowd, takes the visitor into a dreamlike, fairy-tale-esque landscape. And hopefully, nobody pops a balloon and ruins the tranquility.
