Sound Decay: Modeselektor’s Evil Twin

 

If you work all day in front of a computer then you will without a doubt relate to this Modeselektor video  where two figures battle it out in a world full of videos within videos. I myself am always in a battle with my computer monitor where one window is closed only to reveal another window full of work and information that I have to digest.  The entire scenarios takes place on a computer monitor with the figures jumping back and forth from screen to screen creating a clever and playful effect courtesy of director Dent de Cuir.  Watch the full video after the jump!

Disturbing and Sweet Paintings Look Like A Dark Alice In Wonderland

13905016356_fe6ef59d13_b13905019191_802b2aefd3_b113905019021_b71979a12c_b

The French digital painter Lostfish creates an uncomfortable yet irresistibly alluring landscape of feminine powers; her bashful, pink-cheeked subjects reign supreme, adorned in precious jewels and sparkling crowns. The artist’s characters are abuzz with their own fertility, as expressed by bouncing nude breasts and lush flowers that seem to spring up from underfoot; also pictured are rabbits and eggs, symbols art historically associated with breeding and copulation.

The artist, influenced in part by 19th century art, works within a Victorian sensibility, reveling in an innocent, doll-like vision of femininity; her subjects, pale skinned and with impossibly delicate figures, become queens, armed with crowns and tridents. Lostfish’s female characters also seem pious, divine even; a few wear dismembered hands as jewelry, reminiscent of religious icons like the hand of God or the hand of Fatima. White flowers with yellow centers, often symbolic of the Virgin Mary in Christian art, stand in the place of youthful, milky nipples.

Yet within Lostfish’s ethereal and seductive images, there seems to linger an ominous supernatural strength within womankind. Where the Victorian woman is domestic and obedient, Lostfish’s heroines roam like wood nymphs, emboldened by their own reproductive powers; in one image depicting a human fetus within a pink oval, a foreboding reptilian creature seems to invade the womb, its grotesque navel in full view. In one painting, doll faces emerge in a group of six from blood red roses, reminiscent of biblical devil. These tempting, enchanting women dress in excess, giving themselves over to material pleasures. In Lostfish’s gorgeous imaginings the female is both delicate and demure, ravenous and dangerous. Take a look. (via HiFructose)

Dawn Tan’s Epic Munchies

Looking at Dawn Tan’s sculptures makes me hungry. The young Melbourne based artist is interested in how packaged food is taking over natural, organic food and how traditional made-from-scratch meals are becoming replaced by frozen/fast food. Dawn also has a fun series of performance based photography work that you can also check out after the jump.

Adrian Ghenie’s Paintings Of Abuses Of Power

Adrian Ghenie‘s paintings play with texture by distorting the works’ figures as an allegory for the abuses of power. By  drawing on figures from history – such as Marcel Duchamp and Holocaust doctor Dr Josef Mengele – Ghenie scrapes and washes away their features to explore the brutality at the core of human nature.

An angle of 180 degrees is a straight line or half a circle

The self-assigned categories of his work are funny, “recent quite recent not so recent old very old”. These are very human terms.
