end of the year

At the end of the year, I love being on the sofa with a nice book and candles 
around me thinking about the past...

barbara kruger

Because of a major renovation, the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam closed since 2004. Currently, the museum temporarily open to the public. Barbara Kruger is one of the artist who made an installation designed especially for the building’s largest gallery, Kruger’s wraps the floor and walls with printed texts that “speak” directly and loudly to the spectator in a chorus of voices. Her provocative, emotionally charged statements about how people regard and treat each other disrupt the decorum of a traditional museum space. Bringing the world into her work and her work into the world, she confronts stereotypes and clichés, shattering them with a rigorous critique, a generous empathy and a sharp wit.
Last april I visited the Moderna Museet in Stockholm where I first saw work by this American artist Barabara Kruger. Her work was installed in the museum entrance areas.

ice art

In March of 2010, Jim Denevan and his crew created a large scale artwork on the frozen surface of Lake Baikal, Siberia. The spiral of circles, along a fibonacci curve, grow from an origin of 18" to several miles in diameter.
The project is currently featured on The Anthropologist and is the subject of an upcoming documentary directed by Meredith Danluck.

The matter of time

Richard Serra (1939) is the artist of this work "The matter of time". Permanently exhibited in the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao-SpainThe visitor can go in the huge spirals and undulating walls of weathering steel. Unexpected twists and sloping walls, bringing the organ of balance in confusion. A special and breathtaking experience!.

Knitted stools at Libelle online


Breisels van kunstenares Erica Hogenbirk | 21-9-2010 | 12:31
Deze kunstenares steekt een oude textieltechniek in een nieuw jasje.
Uniek en handgemaakt
Breien is niet meer alleen van toen. Deze wollige breisels zijn uniek en handgemaakt. De zachte, wollige stofjes maken de spullen een leuke toevoeging aan het meubilair voor de aankomende herfst.
Elementen uit de natuur
Het werk van Erica Hogenbirk is geïnspireerd op verschillende culturen en elementen uit de natuur. Dit is te zien aan de verschillende lijnen en patronen die zij in haar werk heeft verwerkt. De dessins worden eerst geschetst in de computer en vervolgens met de breimachine verder verwerkt. Het hele proces is met de hand gedaan.
Gevarieerde collectie
De hoes van de wollige krukjes is gemaakt van 100% scheerwol en door het vilt proces stevig en gemakkelijk afneembaar. Naast krukjes vindt u in de collectie ook gebreide tassen, sieraden, kussens en vazen van wol. Allemaal met de hand gebreid en dus zijn alle spullen uniek.
