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.

Absence of Water

»The absence of water« series by Gigi Cifali: »Having been built in the late Victorian period, public lidos and baths were at the peak of their popularity in the 1930s. Gradually, living conditions and tastes have changed, resulting in a drop of attendances, leaving the public pools uneconomical to run. Many fell into decay and many were emolished. Symbols of civic and architectural pride in Victorian times, today only a handful of them remain as a representation of bygone era.

Replicant

Die Frage nach dem Authentizitätsverlust im Graffiti stellt sich erst gar nicht, wenn der Brückenpfeiler gleich mit ausgestellt wird. Kristin Posehn hat’s versucht.

Replicant is an interpretation of graffiti-covered supporting columns from underneath the M25, a motorway that circles London. The work is constructed from high-resolution photographs mounted on plywood, which shows through at top and bottom.

Mossenger

Gut anwässern und nicht zu lange der Sonne aussetzen, nur dann, dann nämlich erreicht die Moos-Graffiti-Message auch ihre Empfänger. Im Gegensatz zu ihren Artgenossen aus der Dose gesünder, sinnlicher und ökologisch unbedenklich. Anna Garforth hat’s in Londons Clissold Park vorgemacht. Mehr als ein Zuchterfolg.
