‘What will you leave behind’ – an art installation in the Ardel Gallery in Bangkok, 2013 by Nino Sarabutra who filled a gallery floor with more than 100,000 miniature porcelain skulls that visitors would walk on. Words from the artist: ‘I want people to ask themselves how they live, what are they doing - if today was your last on earth, what will you leave behind?’ Nino asked a range of people to help create the skulls – friends, family, neighbors, students, workers etc. While making them, they were asked to contemplate their life and think about what they will leave behind.
Visible/Invisible Chair by Takeshi Miyakawa
Made from mirror-finished acrylic.
Ziman, a South African street artist who now resides in Venice Beach, California, attacks Africa’s dominant gun culture with piercing colors and images that don’t fade from memory. With knitted masks and beaded weapons, Ziman paints Africa’s obsession with guns and the power they provide as so bizarre and overwhelming it’s nearly surreal. Both worshipped and feared, Ziman’s guns appear like dangerous totems from an unknown ritual, somewhat removed from the gun culture we’ve heard so much about. The vendors who star in Ziman’s photos were not at all directed in how to pose with the weapon replicas. Yet the viewer can sense the additional status pulsing through the subjects as they hold their powerful instruments, even if only for the duration of a photograph.
