Liza Lou, Fragile/Precious/Everyday

Beadwork recreating paper, grass, and rope.

Absence (Moscow)

Latest work: In Absence (Moscow), a monochromatic mosaic is set within the arch of a distressed wall, two lines of tesserae tracing the outline of a central figure that is left unfilled: a void in the shape of a saint. The viewer, seeing not nothing, but a delineated absence, is confronted with a sense of emptiness and desire. Installed within ARTPLAY Design Center, Moscow.

Art Unchanging

“I make concrete objects that stay the same pretty much for the whole time they exist, and you can go away, and you can come back, and maybe you’ve changed, but the object will still be the same.”

Michal Rovner, History is not in the Past

At minute 5:35, a look at Michal Rovner's installations inside the Louvre. Planted inside the antiquities wing, she exhibited slabs of stone that seemed like fragments of some ancient tablet, across which the (projected) cuneiform shifted, changed. Not writing, but small figures walking constantly across the form.
