Whirlpool

Anna Taugher

“If one is talking about sculpture then scale and skin is everything,” declared Anish Kapoor. He was speaking from India, the birthplace of the acclaimed sculptor, where his latest installation was part of the Kochi-Muziris Biennale. The skin of the object is what defines it, he goes on to explain, while scale creates a certain mystery around the object. Kapoor’s latest work, Descension, has both of these elements.

Unexpectedly set into the gallery floor is a large, seemingly endless hole. In it, a vortex of black water perpetually froths and churns. The whirlpool alters the form, or skin, of the water creating a fury of liquid that invades the walls of the gallery. Descension was on view in a corner room at the Aspinwall House in Fort Kochi, a meaningful location because the room opens to views of a peaceful sea that creates a striking contrast to the powerful whirling vortex.

Frameworks of Absense

Somethings missing...a striking take on historical paintings and what is now missing from our world today. Artist Brandon Ballengée removes animal species that have since become extinct, extracting with a scalpel their images from historic naturalist paintings. The effect is an in your face representation of the world now, a realization and physical representation of how humans have changed the look of the planet. In essence erasing the biodiversity of Earth as we conquer all corners.

May your decomposing body send nourishment to the tree planted upon you, and may you live on forever as a memento within this burial pod forest.

Mongolian Mirage

Anna Taugher

The Mongolian landscape is quickly disappearing, with a quoted 1,200 rivers, 2,600 lakes, and 93,700 springs gone in recent years due to the desertification caused by the mining industry. Artist Daesung Lee is capturing the transition of the Mongolian landscape from lush alpine meadows into arid deserts through billboard–sized paintings displayed en plain air. Lee's paintings depict  healthy, green, native flora  which he displays within the backdrop of the desertified lands of present times. The photographs below show the interaction of the people of Mongolia with these life-size billboards of land past, showing the struggle for natural resources that affect them and soon will effect us all without change.
