Common Ground: Joris Kuipers + Mademoiselle Maurice

Coffee is my favorite part of Monday mornings. Actually that’s not relevant here at all; we’ll get back that another day. A favorite stop for mornings in general, though, is the corner of the internet inhabited by Colossal. I’ve written about it before, and I certainly will again; Christopher Jobson’s curation of contemporary art never disappoints. […]

Common Ground: Aram Bartholl + Dóra Maurer

Bartholl uses layers of paper and a light source to create a screen that pixelates shadows of the individual standing behind it. It’s an elegantly […]

For more background on Rotganzen’s Quelle Fete melting […]

Common Ground

For more from Trevor Baum, visit his portfolio; the arrow image may have been lost to MATTER’s archives, but their site […]

Common Ground

I was puzzled by the list of materials cited for David Huycke’s Imitanulation #2: polyurethane, paint, steel, glass. On first look, the piece brought immediately to mind Tara Donovan’s Untitled (Pins), a cube of straight pins held together by nothing but their own weight and friction, that is part of the ICA’s permanent collection. Imitanulation certainly looked to be […]
