YVON LAMBERT Opening on Friday March 14th, 2014 No Drones March 14th – April 19th With a Passion for Skateboarding: Creative Art Sculptures by Haroshi Now that’s a sick madness! If you have never heard about Japanese wood sculptor named Haroshi, go get the wind of his most original conceptual art. As a creator of amazingly beautiful wooden sculptures out of old, crashed and broken skateboard decks, Haroshi passed for a man of considerable resourcefulness. His multicolored and meticulously sculpted art pieces simply astound with lifelike affinity, so in whichever way it’s even possible to mistake them for being real! In his works he stacks many layers with all piece elements being connected either in their original form or in shapes to form wooden mosaic, dots, and pixels. After that they’re cut down to size, shaven to get rid of the debris, and afterwards coated with a final glossy finish.

Galerie du Pont Neuf .woochimp_wg{} Toutes les Photographes Jef baecker Thierry lacroix Nathan Coley Nathan Coley (b.1967, Glasgow, Scotland) is interested in the idea of ‘public’ space, and his practice explores the ways in which architecture becomes invested – and reinvested – with meaning. Across a range of media Coley investigates what the built environment reveals about the people it surrounds and how the social and individual response to it is in turn culturally conditioned. Using the readymade as a means to take from and re-place in the world, Coley addresses the ritual forms we use to articulate our beliefs – from hand-held placards and erected signs to religious sanctuaries. Whether highlighting in illuminated letters the testimony of a New Yorker recalling the World Trade Center attacks or erasing the names of the dead from their gravestones, his work frequently turns the specific into the general, thereby testing its function as a form of social representation. Nathan Coley lives and works in Glasgow. Links

65,000 Old CDs Create a Shimmering Sea We'll never look at CDs the same away again after seeing these images of Wastelandscape, an installation by French artist Elise Morin composed of 65,000 old CDs. Care to see this in person? You'll find it in Paris at the Centquatre art space, which was formerly a funeral home. The space is now a unique center for creativity that's open to all types of artistic expression including music, dance and theater. The artist envisioned Wastelandscape to be like "a still sea of metallic dunes."

Hasted Kraeutler Art Gallery Hasted Kraeutler is pleased to announce The Dream Goes Over the Time, an exhibition of new photographs by French-born, Madrid-based artist Pierre Gonnord (b. 1963), beginning March 5 and running through April 25, 2015. Working for over a decade as contemporary art’s preeminent documentarian of globalization’s dark underbelly—insular communities, tribes, and clans that exist almost entirely off the grid, from coal miners and punks to immigrants and gypsies—master portraitist Gonnord’s distinctive practice has developed into a lifestyle, taking him on epic journeys through back roads and uncharted terrain in search of characters that live within distinctive social groups, cut off from the rest of civilization. After investing much careful time and energy with these communities, Gonnord takes their pictures, capturing his protagonists against dark backgrounds from the waist up, in the manner of Old Master painting and portraiture.

Exposing Texas's Ungodly Heat, With Giant Melting Crayon Sculptures Blazes have been ripping across Texas this year, as the state endures its worst drought in history. To educate the public about wildfires, the National Ranching Heritage Center (NRHC) in Lubbock commissioned Tennessee artist Herb Williams to construct a smattering of giant, flame-shaped sculptures, some 8 feet tall, using 60,000 to 70,000 Crayola crayons. As time passes, the crayons melt and warp on the landscape, their slumped forms exposing the parched, blowy conditions that feed real flames.

Dice Sculptures by Tony Cragg So this is definitely jaw dropper of the day. How impressive are these dice sculptures by Tony Cragg? Zeng Fanzhi: A wealth of art in China ©Ben McMillan Zeng Fanzhi in his Beijing studio, July 2013 It was 1998 and Zeng Fanzhi was struggling to find somewhere to display his paintings. The market for modern Chinese art barely existed. Thanks to help from a fledgling local dealership, Zeng was able to hang a piece in the lobby of the Ritz-Carlton hotel in Shanghai and was extremely pleased when the painting – “Mask Series No 6” (1996) – was sold to a visiting American tourist for $16,000. ©Zeng Fanzhi Studio.
