Wohlerspark

Sommerurlaub, oder auch - I wear my sunglasses at night

Obwohl es sich im Moment eher nach Herbst als nach Sommer anfühlt, überwand ich heute meinen inneren Schweinehund und machte mich auf den Weg zum Wohlerspark.
Der alte Friedhof ist wirklich ein schöner Park mit labyrinthartigen Wegen und zahlreichen versteckten Sitzgelegenheiten (und ich meine nicht nur die alten Grabplatten).
Mitten in der Woche ist dort nicht viel los und man kann dort wunderbar ein Buch lesen, ohne ständig von übermotivierten Joggern auf die eigene Unsportlichkeit hingewiesen zu werden. Hin und wieder begegnet man dann doch jemandem mit Kopfhörern und Sonnenbrille, langsam hinter einem schlendernd. Etwas spooky war es schon… Man ist ja schließlich auf nem alten Friedhof, es ist bewölkt (und der Typ trägt eine Sonnenbrille!!!) und etwas panisch versucht man sich zu erinnern, was hinter der nächsten Abbiegung kommt… Bis man merkt, dass man selbst mit Sonnenbrille und Kopfhörern langsam vor sich herschlendert.
Es ist Hamburg und die Sonne scheint nicht. Vermutlich trägt man seine Sonnenbrille nur zur Sicherheit, falls sie sich doch noch blicken lässt.

There is nothing more reassuring than realizing the world is crazier than you are

Armbrust und Hellebarde für Kunsthistoriker…
alternativ auch gerne Baseballschläger oder Boxhandschuhe. Manche Kunden interpretieren einfach zu viel in den Spruch “Der Kunde ist König”.
"Nein, die von Ihnen bezahlte Rechnung beinhaltet nicht, dass Sie ausfallend werden dürfen und auch nicht, dass Sie sich wie der Großkönig Xerxes aufführen können… Nein wirklich, der Rechnungsbetrag deckt leider nur die von Ihnen gekaufte Ware ab. Ich bin mir da ganz sicher. Sehen Sie… das steht im Kleingedruckten. Vielen Dank und eine schöne Heimfahrt!”

Bucerius Kunst Forum: Mondrian. Farbe

missaletheia:

Gleich für das nächste Wochenende in den Kalender eintragen…

Wie bereits vor einigen Wochen erwähnt, startete endlich das neue Ausstellungsjahr. 

Das Bucerius Kunst Forum zeigt eine sehenswerte Ausstellung über das Werk Mondrians. Bekannt ist der niederländische Maler vor allem für sein Spätwerk, welches sich durch die Primärfarben Gelb, Blau, Rot sowie die Nicht-Farben Schwarz, Weiß und Grau kennzeichnet.

Die Ausstellung zeigt jedoch auch den Weg zu diesem Spätwerk. Sowohl seine Anfänge als Landschaftsmaler, als auch zahlreiche Versuche in diversen Kunstströmungen der Zeit werden gut präsentiert und greifen immer wieder den roten Faden der Ausstellung auf. Interessant ist, dass durch diese Ausstellung nicht nur das Werk von Mondrian besser verständlich ist, sondern auch die Kunst der klassischen Moderne.  

Eine Woche später zog es mich in das MKG Hamburg. “Mythos Chanel” klang sehr mysteriös und ich hoffte auf einige Überraschungen und natürlich schöne Ausstellungsexponate.

Leider entsprach die Ausstellung bei weitem nicht meinen Erwartungen. Die sehr schönen Interviewaufnahmen gingen im lautem Besuchergewusel unter. Bei so großen Räumlichkeiten, hätte man sicherlich ein kleines abgedunkeltes Kämmerlein für die Filme finden können, anstatt diese in den großen Ausstellungsräumen, eingequetscht zwischen den Exponaten, zu zeigen.

Auch die Auswahl der Chanel-Kleider war sehr begrenzt. Es fehlten mir eindeutig ihre frühen Stücke, die sie z.B. für Ballets Russes kreiert hat. 
Das Chanel-Kostüm war omnipräsent und auch zahlreiche (durchaus sehr schöne) Nachahmungen waren in großen Mengen vorhanden. Darüber hinaus gab es leider nur eine sehr kleine Auswahl an Entwürfen, die später von Karl Lagerfeld für Chanel gemacht wurden. 

Die Zusatzinformationen waren eher rar und im übrigen auch in jeder durchschnittlich guten Biographie von Coco Chanel nachzulesen. Warum Chanel zu einem Mythos geworden ist, wird meiner Meinung nach nicht wirklich klar. Und dabei hätte man so viel aus diesem Thema rausholen können.

Listen, during the first days I was there [Le Crau] I was speaking with a painter friend of mine, who said: ‘What a tedious thing to paint.’ I said nothing, but I found it so magnificent that I didn’t even have the strength to give that idiot a piece of my mind. I’ve been going back there again and again. And I’ve done two drawings of it—of this flat piece of countryside with nothing in it but infinity…eternity…

And then, while I was drawing, a chap came along, not a painter but a soldier. I said to him, ‘Does it astonish you that I find this as beautiful as the sea?’

Now this was someone who knew the sea.

'No,' he said, 'it doesn't astonish me that you find it as beautiful as the sea; but myself I find it even more beautiful than the ocean because it's inhabited.'

Which of these observers is more of an artist, the first or the second, the painter or the soldier? Personally, I prefer the soldier’s eye, don’t you agree?

Was gibt es eigentlich im Vereinigten Königreich Großbritannien und Nordirland?

Freskomalereien gab es bereits im antiken Pompeji, im Mittelalter von Giotto, in der Renaissance unteranderem von Michelangelo oder Raffael. Richard Wright (*1960 in London) arbeitet in der Art dieser Altmeister und erschafft Wanddekorationen, die spezifisch auf ihren Entstehungsort abgestimmt sind.


Wandmalereien sind wohl für jeden Konservator und Restaurator eine Herausforderung, denn ihre Beschaffenheit sichert ihnen keine all zulange Lebenszeit. Bei Wrights Arbeiten ist diese Lebenszeit noch kürzer als bei den traditionellen Fresken. Denn sie werden bereits nach Ablauf der Ausstellungszeit wieder von der Wand entfernt bzw. übermalt. Diese kurzlebige Form macht seine Arbeiten für viele Besucher sehr reizvoll. 


Der Turner-Prize Gewinner arbeitet gerne großformatig und oft mit Blattgold und Silberpigmenten. Seine Wandmotive bestehen aus kaleidoskopartigen, zersprungenen, sich wiederholenden und auch verschlungenen Elementen. Die Entstehung der Arbeiten wird oft dokumentiert und  entspricht größtenteils noch den traditionellen Elementen der Freskomalerei, die Motive sind jedoch sehr modern - was den Reiz der Arbeiten noch mehr verstärkt und dem ästhetischen Geschmack vieler Kunstinteressierter entspricht.

Nestled between hills in the eastern Sahara desert bordering the Red Sea in El Gouna, Egypt is an awesome piece of land art entitled Desert Breath. Between 1995 and 1997 this site-specific installation was created by the D.A.ST. Arteam, comprised of installation artist Danae Stratou, industrial designer and architect Alexandra Stratou, and architect Stella Constantindies.
8,000 square meters of sand were displaced to create large positive and negative conical volumes which form two interlocking spirals that expand from a water-filled center across an area of 100,000 square meters.
17 years since it was created, Desert Breath still exists, “becoming through its slow disintegration, an instrument to measure the passage of time.”

I figured you’d appreciate this. It’s always nice to see that when times are tough, books still can provide a release.

Museum für Völkerkunde Hamburg - Schwedisches Design

Die kleine aber feine Ausstellung im Museum für Völkerkunde, zeigt wunderbare Stücke des schwedischen Designs. Wobei nicht nur eine innovative Idee wichtig ist, sondern auch die Vision von Nachhaltikeit, Umweltbewusstsein und Designstrategie. Hier nur eine kleine Auswahl der interessanten Ausstellungsstücke, die mir besonders ins Auge fielen. Für mehr Informationen zu den einzelnen Projekten bitte auf die Verlinkung klicken. 

Moé Takemuras “The Foreign Japanese Kitchen” zeigt in einfachen bebilderten Schritten wie man auch in Schweden die japanische Küche zelebrieren kann. Da es in Vergleich zu anderen europäischen Ländern (wie z.B. Deutschland) in Schweden weniger Möglichkeiten gibt asiatische Kochzutaten zu besorgen, zeigt die aus Japan stammende Designerin wie man mit regionalen (schwedischen) Zutaten einfache japanische Gerichte zubereiten kann. 

Jenny Ekdahl “Dear Disaster” - Die 2000 bewegliche Holzplättchen an der Schranktür fordern den Benutzer dazu auf ein individuelles Motiv mit Hilfe der eigenen Finger zu erstellen. Gewaltsame und zeitgleich wunderschöne Naturkräfte dienten der Designerin als Inspiration für dieses Möbelstück. 

Mit Mikael Axelssons “Independent Light” ist eine stromlose Selbstversorgung möglich. Durch das langsame Herunterkommen der per Hand aufgezogenen Gewichtssäcke wird ein Mechanismus in Gang gesetzt der eine Glühbirne für etwa 45 Minuten lang leuchten lässt. 

Jens Kallin und Max David Eriksson entwickelten die Braille Box. Einen Drucker den Menschen mit und ohne Sehkraft bedienen können.

 Truth is Beauty by Marco Cochrane

One of the most eye-catching artworks at this year’s Burning Man festival was a 55-feet tall sculpture of a woman in a beautifully elegant pose. Truth is Beauty is the second of three sculptures in a series called The Bliss Project by artist Marco Cochrane. Constructed of welded steel rods and balls and covered in stainless steel mesh skin, the massive sculpture had interactive lighting effects that made it constantly change.
