Glass Like Water: Aerial by Baptiste Debombourg

Juxtapoz // Friday, April 27, 2012
Glass riding in like the tide is the best way to describe what French artist Baptiste Debombourg created with Aerial, an installation at Brauweiler Abbey, a Benedictine monastery near Cologne, Germany. As the glass hits the floor, Debombourg creates the effect of layered ocean tides creeping onto the stone ground, a magnificent result. The work was completed on April 14, 2012, and took over 420 hours to complete.

Mathilde Roussel "Lifes Of Grass"

Juxtapoz // Thursday, April 26, 2012
An installation that grows with time... pretty interesting concept. French artist Mathilde Roussel created the pieces that would make up Lifes of Grass, to examined the "effects of transformation of the material as a metaphor of the transformation of the body. Time sculpts the forms, makes them change and then decay." The work went on display around the world, including the 2010 Crossing the Line FIAF Festival at Invisible Dog Gallery, Brooklyn.

Yayoi Kusama @ Tate Modern, London

Juxtapoz // Monday, April 16, 2012
This past week in London, the Tate Modern presented two juxtapozing exhibitions of major interest to us and obviously most people interested in contemporary art: Damien Hirst may be getting most headlines as of now, but the exhibition covering nine decades of work from Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama was one of the best exhibitions we have seen over the past few years.
