In Search Of … an art show

April 3rd, 2011 § 0 comments § permalink

A plastic crystal ball, a giant wish bone and a Ouija board planchette big enough to be a coffee table.

These are only a few of the magical pieces you’ll see at In Search Of, an art show by Andrew Mowbray at Boston’s La Montagne Gallery.

All the pieces represent objects people go to, either to foretell the future, or to try to direct it in their favour.

Mowbray plays with the ideas of finding meaning in art, by playing with objects that people fill with meaning. And apparently he’s found it all a little absurd. But fun.

Who can be sure if there’s really meaning in anything beyond what we project, but I do know I want one of those giant planchettes.

The show only runs until Saturday, April 16th, so if you’re in the Boston area, go soon.

Archetypology

February 22nd, 2011 § 0 comments § permalink

Archetypology is a Croatian group art show inspired by archetypal themes.

Conceived by Ivana Rezek, the exhibition features work of over a hundred artists, all dealing with universal themes they personally feel connected to or wanted to explore more deeply.

In this slideshow you can see some of the work. Artists featured are Kresimira Gojanovic, Nikolina Ivezić, Lili Jurinec, Dijana Kocica, Chantal Laurin, Willie Marlowe, Tatjana Politeo, Natasa Stanisic and Rezek herself.

Though only Rezek’s work is overtly Tarot, it’s easy to imagine all of these pieces as cards in a deck. Nice.
