Nina Lindgren, Cardboard Heaven

“I use almost exclusively used cardboard. I collect it from the recycling center in my apartment building, from stores and sometimes I find it on the street. I really appreciate the sustainable, earth friendly aspect of reusing a recyclable material. Cardboard also has a lot of expressions. It varies in thickness, hue, color, texture. A bunch of cardboard means so many possibilities to me, when it to others may just be rubbish.”                                                                                                                                                                        Interview by The Raw Book

Valoviti karton je matrial, ki mu v resnici ne posvečamo veliko pozornosti. Iz njega je izdelana večina transportne embalaže. Ob nakupu kateregakoli izdelka ovojno embalažo iz kartona običajno zavržemo, ne da bi se zavedali, da gre za izjemno zanimiv material z optimalnimi mehanskimi lastnostmi, ki je večinoma 100% recikliran. Valoviti karton je trajnostni material prihodnosti z majhnim ogljičnim odtisom.

Zimoun

Studio Zimoun

“The components used in Zimoun’s work are simple, functional and raw, whereas only aesthetically high-level and purposefully chosen elements and materials are used in minimalist fashion. Through radical reduction, Zimoun creates works of art which allow for a plethora of associations without being pinned down to a specific direction. Radical abstraction functions rather like a code in the background of things, thus elegantly avoiding an insinuation of direct, concrete attribution.” – Amanda Neumann

Montraker

29. međunarodna studentska kiparska škola

Podno gradića Vrsara na zapadnoj obali Istre smjestio se ljupki poluotok Montraker, a na njemu i stari kamenolom istog imena. Kamenolom, odavno napušten, danas odiše posebnom atmosferom Mediterana i prošlih vremena, a svakog ljeta iznova oživi dinamikom umjetničke kreacije.

Giuseppe Penone, Spazio di Luce /Space of Light (2012)

“La concezione del tempo che ha una farfalla, un fiore, un albero, un animale un uomo, una pietra, una montagna, un fiume, un mare, un continente, un atomo, produce la varietà infinita del pensiero e delle forme dell’universo.”

“The conception of time that has a butterfly, a flower, a tree, an animal, a man, a stone, a mountain, a river, an ocean, a continent, an atom, produces the infinite variety of thought and forms of the universe.”

A local Turkish pasha fell in love with her, but she loved a young Serbian man and rejected all the proposals and expensive gifts from the pasha.

echo XIV

Da, tudi ti si Nit v Preprogi Dneva, / in tudi tebe Noč z užitkom pije, / a preden te posrka, te prelije / Roka v nov Plamen, da te razodeva … // Morda ne srečaš svojega Odseva / v Pokrajini Zrcal, a vse so tvoje / Oči, in vsakdo tvojo Pesem poje, / in vsakdo v tebi svojo Pot najdeva … // V Morju Trav si krhka Bilka Trave, / krog tebe šepeta si Bilk nešteto, / iz iste Zemlje kličete v Višave, / isto Nebo nad vami je razpeto … // Šotor Ljubezni zeleni v Tišini, / nešteto Bilk prepeva v Ednini …

Krašovec

Metka Krašovec, akvarel, februar, 2009

»Metka Krašovec premore v svojih predalih obilico malih akvarelov, ki nastajajo že leta in so v resnici intimne meditacije na temo. Mali utrinki, pomisleki ali samo vprašanja, ki jih Metka zapisuje na papir. To so hitri zapisi, včasih že kar podzavestni. Človeške figure delujejo skoraj kot grafični znaki, ki plešejo nenavadno koreografijo v breztežnostnem stanju. A vsaka podoba ima svojo jasno likovno sporočilo. Enostavnost potez, s katerimi so upodobljene figure, zapleta govorica teles. Ta je tisti fokus slik, ki jih dela nenavadne in gledalcu zastavlja fine “uganke”. Mogoče celo avtorici sami. Ali pa so to že nekakšni odgovori, ki jih je treba le še dešifrirati. Lahko pa si to serijo slik razlagamo tudi kot izsek iz dnevnika čustev, nekakšen ples duha,« je zapisal likovni urednik Pavle Učakar.
