Abandoned Railways Exploration Probe

Mexican artists Ivan Puig and Andrés Padilla Domene, also known as Los Ferronautas, built a self-made rail vehicle (which could also travel by road) to explore abandoned passenger railways of Mexico and Ecuador. Between 2010 and 2012, they both travelled across the two countries in the so-called SEFT-1 (Sonda de Exploración Ferroviaria Tripulada) uncovering hundreds of modern ruins. Altogether, they drove almost 9,000 kilometres collecting stories, film footage and audio surrounding railways that had been abandoned since 1995, when Mexico privatized their rail system. In their first London exhibition, SEFT-1 Abandoned Railways Exploration Probe – Modern Ruins 1:220, commissioned by The Arts Catalyst and presented in partnership with Furtherfield Gallery, the artists explore how the ideology of progress is imprinted onto historic landscapes and reflect on the two poles of the social experience of technology – use and obsolescence. Watch this video to find out more.

Room

British sculptor Antony Gormley created a giant pixel figure on to the facade of a new hotel in London’s Mayfair. The space inside measures just four square metres, long enough for a bed and wardrobe either side.

Owen Pallett – In Conflict

Owen Pallett - In Conflict Für seine Kompositionen zu »Her« wurde Pallett zusammen mit Arcade Fire für den diesjährigen Oscar nominiert. Hätte die Musikindustrie einen ähnlich imposanten Preis im Repertoire, Pallett’s Lebenswerk wäre langsam auszeichnungsreif.

psychylustro

A new work of Berlin-based artist Katharina Grosse. psychylustro transforms one of Philadelphia’s major transportation thoroughfares with a series of seven bright, bold installations along the city’s rail gateway between 30th Street and North Philadelphia stations. The work unfolds in a series of seven passages – from vast, dramatic warehouse walls to small buildings and stretches of green spaces — meant to be framed through the windows of the moving train, creating a real-time landscape painting that explores shifting scale, perspective and the passage of time. Magic train world.
