Artist Interview: Rachel de Joode

 

Rachel de Joode is a Dutch artist living in Berlin. Recently, she’s produced a prolific number of sculptural works that break down common perception through the use of unique materials, concepts, and execution. Her work is patently of our time, drawing on themes of technology, isolation, and highly saturated levels of information exchange. But her commentary remains singular, even in the face of some fairly evident influences. De Joode is also the co-founder and art director of  META magazine.

We asked the artist a few questions about what she’s been up to lately and the various processes surrounding her sculpture-making. You can find her thoughtful answers after the jump.

Amazingly Realistic Drawings Of Franco Clun

The work of Italian artist Franco Clun may lead you to believe he’s a photographer.  Clun’s artwork, though, are created simply by putting pencil to paper.  Clun carefully crafts each drawing to an unbelievable realism.  Each drawing he completes seems to expand on the skill of the previous one.  He says, “For each new drawing I dedicate more time and attention and I try to push forward my technical limitations.  I learn something new every time I take a pencil in my hand.”  [via]

Moment Factory’s Crazy Video Projection Piece On the Huge Facade of a Catalan Cathedral

Recently, Canadian installation/performance studio Moment Factory put on a really ambitious show in Barcelona. The group designed and executed a video projection piece using the facade of Gaudi’s Sagrada Familia cathedral. Looks incredible. MF pulled off the piece three nights in a row during the recent La Merce Festival. It would kill my brain if I tried to engineer a video projection piece using a structure as complex as the Sagrada Familia. More images after the jump. (via)

Marc Quinn’s Provocative Surrealist Sculptures

QuinnSculpture2 QuinnSculpture7 QuinnSculpture10

Marc Quinn’s surreal sculpture work is undeniably provocative and captivating. While he uses many different materials for his sculpture and installation work, he always seems to address the idea of bodies and their boundaries, the materiality of the human condition, or the relationship between nature and culture. Quinn’s 2004 exhibition, The Complete Marbles, is a collection of marble sculptures depicting amputees and disabled individuals that alludes to the style of Greco-Roman statues. Quinn recently donated his paradoxical sculpture from 2008, “Planet,” for permanent display at the Gardens by the Bay in Singapore. Very large and heavy, this sculpture depicts his son as a sleeping baby and appears weightless, almost floating. His most recent solo exhibition, All the Time in the World, is currently on display at Mary Boone Gallery in New York until June 29th.
