‘growth series’ is an experimental work by PIIT

Korean artist PIIT (Pure Interest In Things) strongly believes that ‘every ordinary thing has a hidden power‘. It focuses, in particular, on the possibility of a common material developing and expanding into new forms and functions.

To test this vision, PIIT created “Growth Series”, an experimental program art project featuring knitted pieces taking over what appears to be a construction site. Each piece is ‘an organic result of the soft properties and successive bundles of backup forms commonly used on construction sites, growing by filling their own empty spaces,’ he explains.

how ordinary materials can expand in unexpected ways

‘Growth Series’ is inherently experimental because ‘it is difficult to wait for the results of further attempts‘, continues PIIT (see more here). The artist began using thick cords of fabric to replicate the basic shape of a concrete cone or pillar, but soon noticed how these replicas could be enlarged in different ways, just like a single stem of living cells.

“It can be transformed into an element that has texture and volume, it can be a structure that supports space, it can grow like a parasite, it can replace the function of furniture or it can replace social regulations. (in this series, traffic cones). It shows us how to connect relationships such as space-space, object-person and object-clone, as a transfer of functions,’ reflects PIIT.

The FBI raided the Orlando Museum of Art on Friday and seized more than two dozen paintings attributed to the artist Jean-Michel Basquiat following questions about their authenticity.

Orlando Museum of Art Spokesperson Emilie Bourmas-Fry said in a statement that they were complying with an FBI warrant for access to the “Heroes and Monsters” exhibit, which is now in government possession. She added that no museum staff have been arrested.

“It is important to note that we still have not been led to believe that the Museum has been or is the subject of an investigation,” Bourmas-Fry said. “We continue to view our involvement only as a fact witness.”

According to a search warrant, federal art crime investigators investigated the 25 paintings shortly after their discovery in 2012. The controversy gained more attention soon after the Orlando exhibit opened in February.

Basquiat, who lived and worked in New York, found success in the 1980s as part of the neo-expressionist movement. The Orlando Museum of Art was the first institution to display pieces believed to have been found in an old storage locker years after Basquiat died in 1988 of a drug overdose at age 27.

Questions about the authenticity of the works of art arose almost immediately after their discovery. The artwork is believed to have been made in 1982, but experts have pointed out that the cardboard used in at least one of the pieces included a FedEx typeface that was not used until 1994, about six years after Basquiat’s death. according to the mandate. Also, television writer Thad Mumfordthe owner of the storage locker where the art was eventually found told investigators that he had never owned any Basquiat art and that the pieces were not in the unit when he last visited.

Mumford died in 2018.

Director of the Orlando Museum of Art Aaron Degroft has repeatedly insisted that the art is legit.

The exhibit was originally announced to run through June 2023 in Orlando, the museum later announced it would end next week. Bourmas-Fry said the owners of the art refused to extend the museum’s contract and planned to send the works to Italy for display.

“Based on my training and experience, I believe that the significantly advanced date of the international departure of the Mumford collection from the OMA is intended to avoid further public scrutiny of the provenance and authenticity of the works. and law enforcement,” an FBI special agent said. written in the warrant application.

No criminal charges have been filed.

The announcement that JRR Tolkien would be releasing a new novel later this year didn’t exactly excite many diehard Tolkienists, if only for the fact that The Fall of Numenor will not actually involve any new writing material from The Lord of the Rings author. But you never look a horse gift in the mouth, and the fact that we’re getting 11 new illustrations from Alan Lee is as regal a gift as the one Thorin gave Bilbo at the end of The Hobbit.

Alan Lee has long been revered as one of the finest cartoonists to portray Middle-earth, with many fans holding him on par with John Howe. Both Lee and Howe worked with Peter Jackson to direct The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit trilogies, not to mention that we’ve seen his work on every illustrated version of The Legendary, whether set in the Third Age or as early as The Silmarillionchronologically the first book involving the creation of the world at the hands of Eru Ilúvatar.

Now, thanks to Weekly entertainment, we have a first look at some of the artwork that will appear in The Fall of Numenor. Check them out below.

Lee also made a statement about returning to Middle-earth.

“It is a pleasure to be able to explore the Second Age in greater detail and learn more about those dark and ancient events, alliances and catastrophes that ultimately led to the stories of the Third Age that we know best. had the opportunity to work on The Lord of the Rings and The HobbitI tried to imbue the images and designs with an appropriate antiquity, a layering of history and echoes of those older stories, and The Fall of Numenor proved a perfect opportunity to dig a little deeper into Middle-earth’s rich history.

Describing the fall of the titular kingdom of Men, this new novel is a collection of writings involving the Second Age of Middle-earth, and how Sauron the Deceiver brought about the end of Númenor, thus paving the way for the creation of Gondor and Arnor. .

The Fall of Numenor releases November 10.

Galloire, the innovative contemporary gallery located at London Street, City Walk, Dubai, has signed a historic agreement with Abu Dhabi’s MidChains, to become the first major gallery in the Middle East region to accept cryptocurrency for the physical or digital art. It joins a list of major international galleries such as Pace, Lehmann Maupin and recently Gagosian, to accept Bitcoin, Ethereum and USDC for art sales worldwide.

“The gallery continues to forge ahead with the use of technology to enable collectors to connect with its artists and their work,” said founder Edward Gallagher, speaking about the gallery and the principles that underpin it. tend the move.

“We have an absolute belief in using technology to bring art to as wide an audience as possible; so, using photorealistic virtual reality and augmented reality, you’ve already seen us bring exhibitions from world-renowned artists to tens of thousands more people in the gallery than ever before.

“We want more people to connect with contemporary art and also believe in an egalitarian approach to how people want to pay for this art.

“Why should we force a crypto-native person to pay in traditional (fiat) currency to acquire a beautiful painting, and vice versa? Why should a traditional collector looking to venture into NFT pay in cryptocurrency just to access digital art they fall in love with? »

Over the past few years, the UAE has become a top hotbed for blockchain and cryptocurrency entrepreneurs and investors, with new legislation making it easier for large companies to set up shop in the country.

The country is also no stranger to major art acquisitions for crypto-wealth, as last year saw Sacha Jafri’s record work (the largest painting on canvas in history) sold for sixty -two million dollars to French crypto-businessman André Abdoune.

Gallery 1

Jafri (born 1977) is a contemporary British artist best known for creating the world’s largest painting on canvas, Journey of Humanity (recognized by the Guinness Book of World Records) over seven months during the COVID-19 pandemic in Dubai .

It was sold at auction in Dubai for 228 million dirhams (62 million US dollars) – the fourth highest auction price ever paid for a work of art by a living artist, behind Jeff Koon’s Rabbit (91 .1 million), David Hockney’s Portrait of an Artist (Pool with Two Figures) US$90 million and Beeple’s Everydays: the First 5000 Days (US$69.3).

The painting measures over 17,000 square feet and incorporates the works of children from over 140 nations. Jafri donates the proceeds from the sale to children’s charities. Abdoune is of Algerian origin, he lives between Paris and Dubai. He made his fortune in stock trading before buying the industrial group Altius Gestion International Holding and embarking on cryptocurrency trading.

MidChains is one of the leading players in the cryptocurrency and broader virtual asset trading space that has flourished during this time. Led by CEO Basil Al Askari and co-founder Mohamed Al Hashemi, the company has received support from global (e.g. MIAX) and regional (e.g. Mubadala and Abu Dhabi Developmental Holding Company, ADQ) heavyweights.

Al Askari said, “We are a company that prides itself on innovation and being able to provide safe and regulated ways to transact and invest with cryptocurrency; so working with Galloire to allow collectors to invest in art using their favorite cryptocurrency, made perfect sense to us.

“Allowing people to securely pay for a physical asset with a digital asset, especially something as impactful as art, is a huge step forward in the UAE and we were able to do that today, not in months or years.”

Gallagher added, “We are extremely proud to be working with MidChains to facilitate this next step in payment technology. “Many companies in the UAE are offering to help explore this area or facilitate cryptocurrency payments – but most are not properly authorized to do so.

“MidChains is fully licensed by Abu Dhabi Global Market (ADGM) and regulated by the Financial Services Regulatory Authority (FSRA) to deliver on its promise, and we are delighted to have them as our partner.” MidChains and Galloire also confirmed that the systems were up and running to accept cryptocurrency payments, in time for the recently closed exhibition of rising Hong Kong art star Carla Chan.

By changing the way people trade, MidChains seeks to democratize new ways to acquire and hold wealth, with transparency and regulation that makes it safe for everyone. Backed by reputable regional and international investors including Mubadala Investment Company (Mubadala), MIAX Exchange Group and DisruptAD, (ADQ), it is a fully licensed multilateral virtual asset trading system and depository based in the United Arab Emirates, built and operated by a new generation of experienced financial services professionals.

MidChains acts as a key access point for virtual/crypto assets, enabling retail investors and connecting global institutions to the region. Galloire is a leading contemporary gallery that works with established and emerging artists from around the world who, whatever their medium, push the boundaries of culture, think and explore our digitally dominated society.

Possessing an eclectic range, it exhibits artists whose roots come from urban art to classically trained painting, from the world seen through the lens to the data that surrounds us. The gallery is also characterized by a strong interest in how the visual arts work in conjunction with other forms such as poetry, philosophy and science.

An impressive new artwork spanning the width of Stormont has been unveiled at the Parliament Buildings.

he new lawn mural by Swiss-based French graffiti artist Saype will display two huge hands linked together, forming a human chain with more than 30 other cities around the world that have also participated in the art installation.

According to the artist, the piece promotes “solidarity, dialogue and friendship” across the world and is in partnership with the Swiss Embassy in the United Kingdom.

The work itself covers an area of ​​45 by 240 meters and is created using biodegradable pigments made from charcoal and chalk.

The scale of the work will dwarf the Stormont building, until the room gradually fades with the growth of grass.

Previous iterations of the installation have appeared on all five continents of the world and in cities as varied as Ouagadougou, Paris, Geneva, Dubai and many other places.

Saype said he is committed through his work to “shed light” on issues of social transformation as well as promoting “ecological and sustainable methods of artistic creation with respect for nature”.

Swiss Ambassador Markus Leitner said the project is about “global connectivity and sustainability”.

Michael Weir, Director of the Belfast Photo Festival, added: “Saype’s works are best viewed through a drone, a lens in the sky, which raises questions about how we access a work of art, even when the point of view is beyond our physical reach.
