ミラノ郊外で児童書のイラストレーターとして長年活躍してきたマッシモ・アルファイオリ(Massimo Alfaioli)氏が、子ども達に親しまれてきた数々の作品とはかなり趣の異なっている最近の作品群や、趣味である園芸と香水について語ってくれた。
インタヴュアーを務めてくれたのは、ホノルル・ビエンナーレの共同創立者であり医学博士でもあるコーアン・ジェフ・ベイサ(Kóan Jeff Baysa)氏。ベイサ氏は、ロサンゼルスにあるインスティチュート・オブ・アート アンド オルファクション(The Institute for Art and Olfaction)の主任キューレーターを務める嗅覚芸術の権威でもある。
現代アートの創作現場では、騒音としか思えない大音量の音楽の中でアーティストが作品の制作に没頭する様にしばしば出会うが、アルファイオリ氏のスタジオではその日の制作に合った音楽と香水が気分を高めることに不可欠であると語っていることが興味深い。
五感が一体になったアートというものが、少しづつ増えてきている今日この頃。視覚美術が専門とは云え、嗅覚が制作環境作りに大きな役割を持っているというのは嬉しいことだ。

“Good, honest stuff for good, honest people” is the claim made on the website of Almond Surfboards & Designs, making clear right from the start the cornerstones of the philosophy of this manufacturer of surfboards, based in Newport Beach, California. The idea came to Dave Allee in 2007, while he was still a student in the department of economics at Chapman University, and became a reality in 2009 after a chance meeting with Griffin Neumann-Kyle, a “shaper” trained under the wing of Bruce Jones, pioneer of the surf industry with over 40 years of experience in the sector.

Bruce Munro illuminates Australia’s vast desert landscape in a field of light

At Ayers Rock Resort in Australia, British artist Bruce Munro has installed a ‘Feld of Light’ that illuminates the vast desert landscape. Marking his largest project to date, this immersive work — the most recent in a series of monumental light-based installations — comprises more than 50,000 slender stems, crowned with frosted-glass spheres. The sculpture stretches to an area the size of four football fields just beside Uluru — the monumental sandstone monolith in the heart of the Red Centre desert. Throughout the day, the semi-transparent solar-powered spheres collect and store sunlight, coming alive by night through a network of illuminated optical fibre threads. The labyrinth of color forms pathways that lead viewers through the landscape, as well as the installation’s dynamic abyss.

Andres Serrano has a reputation for outrage, so the postcard he is holding face down against his chest as we share the closest thing London has to a New York brunch must be strong stuff. Is it a photograph of a shocking sex act, a broken body, a desecrated Christian symbol? He explains that he has never shown this picture before, but decided he had to include it in his new retrospective in Brussels. It is a portrait of Donald Trump.

Joël Dupuch’s billet-doux to the lusty mollusk

“Eating oysters is like kissing the sea on the lips,” the French poet Léon-Paul Fargue once wrote. In his ode to the aphrodisiacal mollusk, creative director Sergio Penzo traveled to the Arcachon coast in south-west France to capture the working day of famed sixth-generation oyster farmer and actor Joël Dupuch.
