Joan Miro, 20.4.1893-25.12.1983, Single of the Day
“L’immobilità per me evoca grandi spazi in cui si producono movimenti che non si arrestano, movimenti che non hanno fine. E’, come diceva Kant, l’irruzione immediata dell’infinito nel finito. Un ciottolo, che è un oggetto finito e immobile, mi suggerisce non solo dei movimenti, ma movimenti infiniti che, nei miei quadri, si traducono in forme simili a scintille che erompono dalla conrice come da un vulcano.”
Buon Compleanno Mr. Miro!
The three blue paintings have to be regarded as one. Seen separately, nothing much seems to be happening on them. Search the third one to have the whole picture…
Olafur Eliasson, 5.2. 1967, Single of the Day
From Unspoken Spaces – Olafur Eliasson
I’m of the opinion that central perspective – the traditional Western model for organizing objects within our visible field has created a kind of blindness, a generalized way of seeing, an ocular numbness, if you will. It creates more disembodied eye than seeing body. I remember frequently discussing the idea of reversing central perspective at the time I was making The blind pavilion, proposing a double perspective, where the vanishing point would be in my eyes rather than on my horizon.

A must seen: A Japanese Constellation
It focuses on the network of architects and designers that has developed around Pritzker Prize winners Toyo Ito and SANAA. Providing an overview of Ito’s career and his influence as a mentor to a new generation of Japanese architects, the exhibition presents recent works by internationally acclaimed designers, including Kazuyo Sejima, Ryue Nishizawa, Sou Fujimoto, Akihisa Hirata, and Junya Ishigami. Departing from one of Ito’s pivotal works, the Sendai Mediatheque, completed in 2001, as well as SANAA’s 21st Century Museum of Contemporary Art, Kanazawa (2004), the 44 featured designs range in scale from small houses to museums. With its idea of a network of luminaries at work, A Japanese Constellation is intended as a reflection on the transmission of an architectural sensibility, and suggests an alternative model to what has been commonly described as an individuality-based “star-system” in contemporary architecture.
To feel being part of a martial wonderful landscape visit this exibition.
Until July 4th, 2016
