I have always been attracted to works of art that defy their medium. Burmese artist, Htet T San, in her latest series The Frail Second depicts a poetic symbiosis of humanity and earth in impressionistic photographs that feel like words whispered in dreams.
Explore the city of Mons where a Belgian theater company performs a play in a digital space created by similar technology to Google Street View. Created by Ludovic Nobileau with his Xtnt theatre group. Mons Street View is a brilliant adaptation of technology and theater that creates a very surreal and voyeuristic experience.
If you don’t know who Vilem Flusser is, you should. Born in Czech Republic but based in Sao Paulo for most of his life, Flusser was a brilliant writer. He writes philosophical tomes with political and technological influence way ahead of his time. A media theorist would be a better descriptor than philosopher, but I believe he lives in between these two signifies and creates his own genre. Other readings by Flusser that I’d recommend are Cows and his book Into the Universe of Technical Images.
Amazing Iranian painter, Mehdi Ghadyanloo, just had his first solo show in London at the Howard Griffin Gallery. Mesmerizing paintings that play with space and abstraction inside surrealist landscapes.
