June Lee's Bystander

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, June 09, 2015
Korean artist June Lee's work is based on the social phenomena of the bystander, what she calls the "Bystander Effect." "Countless things Countless things that happen quietly in our society are cases of bystander effect that make select individuals into outcasts. Thinking how I can become a social outcast due to the distant indifferent bystanders, I find this a serious problem that can’t be overlooked in silence.

"Intimate Vestiges" by Fiona Roberts

Juxtapoz // Friday, June 05, 2015
Dealing with questions like what is human and where are memories, the sculpture installation Intimate Vestiges by Fiona Roberts transforms the mundane into psychedelic poetry. A rug of fingers, faces in pillows and mouths on chairs, these anthropomorphized objects allow viewers to rethink what just is and what is taken for granted.

The Stunning Hyperrealistic Sculptures of the Late Duane Hanson @ Serpentine, London

Juxtapoz // Monday, June 01, 2015
Definitely something to check out if you are one of our London readers or about to take a trip there: The Serpentine presents the work of late American sculptor Duane Hanson (1925-1996) in his first survey show in London since 1997. Throughout his forty-year career, Hanson created lifelike sculptures portraying working-class Americans and overlooked members of society. Reminiscent of the Pop Art movement of the time, his sculptures transform the banalities and trivialities of everyday life into iconographic material. The exhibition at the Serpentine Sackler Gallery presents key works from the artist’s oeuvre.

Daniel Rozin's Interactive "PomPom Mirror"

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, May 27, 2015
Daniel Rozin’s anthropomorphic "PomPom Mirror" features a synchronized array of 928 spherical faux fur puffs. Organized into a three-dimensional grid of beige and black, the sculpture is controlled by hundreds of motors that build silhouettes of viewers using computer-vision. Along its surface, figures appear as fluffy animal-like representations within the picture plane, which is made permeable by a ‘push-pull’ forward and backward motion of meshed ‘pixels’.

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, May 27, 2015
Yayoi Kusama has brought her seminal installation from 2002, The Obliteration Room, to David Zwirner in New York.

Nylon Sculptures by Rosa Verloop

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, May 26, 2015
Dutch artist Rosa Verloop as found an interesting use for stockings. By molding, folding, and squeezing common nylon stockings, Verloop has created interesting, layered facial structures. She uses regular pins to keep the stockings in the shape of a facial structure and her portraits sit at an "uncomfortable place in the life cycle between birth and death."
