MLRP: mirror house

the copenhagen central park in denmark has transformed an existing playground pavilion into the ‘mirror house’,
designed by danish practice MLRP. previously covered with graffiti, the structure has been converted into an interactive element,
inviting visitors to peer into the gable ends lined with funhouse trick mirrors. reflecting the dynamic activity and encompassing park,
the surfaces create a transition between the built and natural environments.

the elongated sides of the building are clad with planks of heat-modified wood, concealing a series of windows and doors
which may be opened to reveal portals to restrooms and flexible spaces used by kindergarten classes. upon swinging the doors parallel
to the facade, curved planes are revealed to view outwards, attracting children to see their distorted reflections. the concave and
convex components are formed with mirror-polished stainless steel sheets. at night, the shutters and panels may be closed to generate
an anonymous exterior.

zhan wang: my personal universe

chinese sculptor zhan wang has created a sculpture and video installation at the ullens center for contemporary art in beijing
entitled ‘my personal universe’. the exhibition is a conceptualization of the moment of the creation of the universe through
the big bang theory.

one component to ‘my personal universe’ is a high-definition video having captured the detonation of a bomb which shattered
a giant boulder just outside the suburbs of shandong, china. the sight was captured through the use of six video cameras
capturing 2,000 frames per second positioned at various angels around the explosion in order to create a truly encompassing film.
the three minute video is projected upon the walls of the gallery space in a continual loop.

the sculptural aspect to the exhibition includes a collection of mirrored stainless steel rocks created by wang, suspended from
the ceiling which emulate the naturally haphazard way in which the boulder was detonated. the gallery goer wanders through
the space, amongst the suspended boulders and video, existing in what wanghas fashioned as a modern manifestation of the moment
of universal creation.

Le opere di Chiharu Shiota assorbono letteralmente lo spazio che occupano e quasi se ne nutrono, in una maniera che sfiora il parassitismo. Sono grandi istallazioni di filo nero che sembrano impossessarsi velocemente di tutto ciò che ricoprono, dalle figure, agli abiti, alle stesse superfici, che perdono la loro stessa specificità, trasformandosi in meri supporti per una creatività traboccante. E non potrebbe essere altrimenti vista l’enorme energia che emana dall’artista, che è stata allieva di Marina Abramovic durante gli anni ‘90, e si cimenta nella produzione di “tele di lana di ragno” che prolungano l’a/essenza del suo corpo.

Un’estensione “Infinity”, già nella sua concezione, pensata per adattarsi ad ogni spazio reinterpretandolo e rivelando nuove possibilità di intreccio, che “ha posato i suoi chiodi” fino al 18 febbraio, presso l’Impasse Beaubourg della Galleria Daniel Templon di Parigi.

Perché in fondo si tratta di una specie di tessuto, che ha la trama irregolare della vita, con i suoi nodi, le sue differenze di densità, le sue prede catturate e le sue trasparenze e la cui forma stessa degli oggetti imprigionati la dice lunga sul significato della loro cattura. Strumenti musicali, vestiti di bambole, scarpe e letti che si “spogliano” della loro finalità primaria, per raggiungere lo statuto etereo delle visioni poetiche, tracciando una mappa dalle infinite possibilità, che disegna mille percorsi allo stesso tempo, mettendo in comunicazione esistenze solo apparentemente lontane.
