Landed by Ian Strange | via

Artist, Ian Strange has unveiled his latest installation, ‘Landed’, for the 2014 Adelaide Biennial of Australian Art.

‘Landed’ is the recreation of a 1920’s suburban Australian home positioned on the forecourt of the Art Gallery of South Australia. The house, all black, appears to have fallen from the sky and embedded itself in the forecourt of the gallery.
The sculpture was designed, in part, to contrast the neo-classical architecture of the museum, but the work is also a direct and playful reference to the Wizard of OZ and the sudden appearance of western culture in Australia.

IAN STRANGES’ MATTE BLACK HOUSE LANDS DOWN UNDER

The 2014 Biennial of Australian Art ended this past Sunday and some spectacular images of the site specific installations have been creeping online. New York based artist, Ian Stranges’ ‘LANDED’ was commissioned for the Biennial and made a huge scene seemingly crash landing right in front of the Art Gallery of South Australia. The foreboding matte black house surrounded by rubble looks like missing scene from ‘The Wizard of OZ’ - only I’m pretty sure it would be the house of Dorothy’s nemesis.

This installation, one of Kusama’s “infinity mirror rooms,” was originally shown in the 2004 Whitney Biennial and is part of the Whitney’s collection. Fireflies goes on view June 13 in anticipation of a large Kusama retrospective, which opens July 12, 2012.

Something awesome, surreal and possibly even a little bit magical is happening on a quiet street in the Toxteth district of Liverpool, England. Every night, when the clock strikes 10:00pm, the sliding storefront shutter on a derelict building opens to reveal a radiant blue tank of water filled with live, luminous jellyfish silently swimming around the space.

This dreamlike scene is a site-specific art installation created by artistic duo Walter Hugo & Zoniel for the Liverpool Biennial. Entitled The Physical Possibility of Inspiring Imagination in the Mind of Someone Living, the piece was not promoted in advance in any way. Instead it simply started happening and will continue making its punctual 10pm appearance until July 27, 2014.

If you can’t make it to Liverpool before the end of the month, you can click here to watch some video footage of the installation, which was shared by Neal Bryant.

IV Brazilian Design Biennial

The theme of the IV Brazilian Design Biennial was “Brazilian Diversity”. The starting point for the creation of the identity was taken from issues evolving from the theme itself, such as natural resources diversity, plurality and industrial/handmade production. The result should then be as flexible as the infinite possibilities for manifestations of the record of the ages of man through design.

The result was the creation of a variable identity in which two letters, namely the letter “D” (one representing design and the other, diversity), in distinct font types paired to form a “B” (as in Biennial). Thus, the choices of font type represent the diverse themes featured in the exhibits, such as jewelry pieces, mobility, arts & crafts, furniture and others, emphasizing even further the main theme of this edition: Brazilian diversity.

THE GUARDIANS


The Guardian Sculptures by artist Manfred Kielnhofer of Austria are showing up all over Venice during the Biennial - each night these mystical illuminated sculptures will appear in a different locations  - afterwards they will continue to look over and observe the world over as they travel from museum to museum.

Their movements have spawned a new project/competition as well… “Mini-Guardians” offers photographers the chance to catch the guardians in their own light.
