Zhang Ding: Analgesic 

Free-Standing Sculpture Tinted copper, 18K Gold, pure silver 

Analgesic is easily the most blatant of depiction of materialism. This hand in particular takes on the fallen nature that ZHANG wants the audience to see; the pills lay around the hand as if they have been dropped.

The hand itself is holding the mass produced pain pills beyond its control. Here we begin to see the control of the market over society.

ZHANG has taken a well known and popular household product and made it into nothing other than material gold and silver purchased and held by the hand of society. The human has lost identity and lost control, implying the degradation of consumerist culture. And now all we know is the pills given to us; the drug of the masses.

The Cave Art Paintings of the Lascaux Cave

Lascaux is famous for its Palaeolithic cave paintings, found in a complex of caves in the Dordogne region of southwestern France, because of their exceptional quality, size, sophistication and antiquity. Estimated to be up to 20,000 years old, the paintings consist primarily of large animals, once native to the region. Lascaux is located in the Vézère Valley where many other decorated caves have been found since the beginning of the 20th century. Lascaux is a complex cave with several areas (Hall of the Bulls, Passage gallery) It was discovered on 12 September 1940 and given statutory historic monument protection in december of the same year. In 1979, several decorated caves of the Vézère Valley - including the Lascaux cave - were added to the UNESCO World Heritage Sites list. But these hauntingly beautiful prehistoric cave paintings are in peril. Recently, in Paris, over 200 archaeologists, anthropologists and other scientists gathered for an unprecedented symposium to discuss the plight of the priceless treasures of Lascaux, and to find a solution to preserve them for the future.

Jenny Morgan’s Portraits.

Jenny Morgan’s portraits are stately hypotheticals into the personality of the individual represented.  Morgan chooses friends she is not well acquainted with to increase the mysteriousness of the work, but also she sands away slightly at the canvas which puts forth a sense of “digging away” at knowing something.  Perhaps like an archaeologist might slow dust away layers of dirt to discover a long lost treasure.  See more of Jenny’s work below:

Edoardo Tresoldi: Wire Sculptures

on Behance

"The man in relation to space and shapes, the shapes of the objects that belong to his life as a testimony of a life full of emotions and moods: as a photo or a lettera.L ‘man and his retainers MEMORIES a square sheet, but live like a beam of light or shadow. shapes in my work "extrude" forming imaginary volumes that affect the shape and shaping dissect the feeling, the real protagonist of the work. The shape dynamics and natural of the figure contrasts network and detaches from the geometric section and static represented only in color. Color and shape then work on two separate perceptual channels taking the stage suspended between two dimensions: the physical and the spiritual."

The piece existed solely on the evening of the opening and consisted in the presentation to the public of the gallerist Massimo De Carlo of Milan literally affixed to the wall by adhesive tape, that almost entirely covered him, like a grotesque but not less striking crucifixion.
