Here's a striking set of Stations of the Cross. (I prefer the series of links rather than the downloadable version, which probably for copyright reasons uses drawings instead of the powerful sculpted images.)
I'm taking a break now from blogging and reading blogs till Monday. Have a blessed Easter Triduum.
Link via What's Wrong with the World, a blog I've been reading with interest lately. Home to some very smart philosophically trained minds including good ol' Zippy Catholic, whose personal blog I visit from time to time, and the formidable Lydia McGrew, who describes "blogging in defense of conservative and unfashionable political
positions" as one of her hobbies.
Outrage against the endless parade of tediously transgressive exhibits just tends to line the pockets of "artistic" provocateurs, so there's got to be a better response. Maureen Mullarkey dissects The Ugly Business of Contemporary Art. I say we should all troop down to one of these avant-garde shows and snore loudly in choreographed asynchronicity as a way of signifying the hegemonic futility of postmodernism. There, did I cram enough polysyllabic words into the
product monograph artist's statement?
You know those stories where one person writes one sentence and someone else writes the next? My friend Sigrid at The Japanese Paper Place has helped organize an exhibit something like that, called The Power of Two, where artists in pairs worked with fine Japanese papers, the first decorating the paper and the second turning it into a craft object.
Here's the Electric Bento Lunch Box by Susan Low-Beer and Don Taylor.
The exhibit runs 1–29 September 2006 at the The Japanese Paper Place, 77 Brock Avenue, Toronto. I'm looking forward to the opening tomorrow afternoon, September 10.
