Elodie Antoine (Belgium) - Nuclear landscape. Cloud. Black lace thread and pins (2007)

From what we know about the works of Elodie Antoine, she makes use of flexible materials such as thread, fabric, wallpaper, wool carpet and felt. She also works with everyday items : chairs, frames, sinks but always taking them beyond their limits. Elodie Antoine strives for taking complete possession of the space, placing objects in a way which seems as if they self-generated there. She uses textiles in order to create a universe made of organic and vegetable matter where all the items, with their peculiar shapes, seem to be in a state of progression. She explores the potential of materials by allowing them to multiply and outgrow in a way that is natural to them, but which she nonetheless cleverly controls. How about the bobbin lace depicting nuclear power stations, cranes or electricity pylons? (Read more)

Li Ma

Li Ma’s work consists of fabric mobiles and wall hangings which are made up of many smaller components.  Each little motif is an abstracted object from everyday life (combs, beer bottles, trees, laundry hanging on a line) but when she assembles them, they are transformed from second-hand fabric into something celebratory and new.  Her most recent installation is inspired by the Banyan trees in her hometown of Fuzhou China—come see it at SOMArts September 3-October 1 as part of the Murphy and Cadogan Award winners’ exhibition.

The nature of Joana Vasconcelos’ creative process is based on the appropriation, decontextualisation and subversion of pre-existent objects and everyday realities. Starting out from ingenious operations of displacement, a reminiscence of the ready-made and the grammars of Nouveau Réalisme and pop, the artist offers us a complicit vision, but one which is at the same time critical of contemporary society and the several features which serve the enunciations of collective identity, especially those that concern the status of women, class distinction or national identity. From this process there derives a speech which is attentive to contemporary idiosyncrasies, where the dichotomies of hand-crafted/industrial, private/public, tradition/modernity and popular culture/erudite culture are imbued with affinities that are apt to renovate the usual fluxes of signification which are characteristic of contemporaneity. 


This is one of the most inspirational artists, i’ve managed to find upon my travelled, i love the combination of typical conventional objects combined with opulence such as lace diamonds and feathers.

I hope to create something similar like this in recent times.

Nicole Andrijevic & Tanya Schultz is an art-duo who takes sugar, pigment, polystyrene, wax, modeling clay, paper, plastic, found objects, wire, beads, glitter, and almost whatever else they can get their hands on to create a literal Candyland in the middle of the gallery floor.
