Reflexiones by Matthias Heiderich


With a remarkable gift of capturing vivid and powerful pin sharp scenes, once again Berlin-based photographer, Matthias Heiderich, drew our attention to himself. The series ‘Reflexiones’ has emerged in April and May of this year, during a trip to Spain. He visited places like Madrid, Santiago de Compostela, Aviles and Bilbao to document contemporaneous architecture. 


Places also marked on his route were developing areas in the south of Madrid, Ciudad de la Cultura in Santiago and Centro Niemeyer in Avilés. He tells us his approach towards the depicted subject was as always, ‘rather of artistic than handcrafted nature, which means, I take more liberties with pictorial design as it would be possible for an architectural photographer’.


 This way he composes captivating images of minimalist nature in which an aesthetic idealization is more important than the realistic representation of the building. Seemingly effortlessly Matthias Heiderich succeeds in a game of loud and strong, sometimes subtle colors, capturing the selected objects in a unique and thrilling way.


Tattoos by Expanded Eye

Artists Jade Tomlinson and Kev James of Expanded Eye split their time between London and Thonon-les-Bains, France where they pursue a wide range of artistic endeavors including illustration, street art, and tattoos. Kev does the actual ink work while the duo collaborate for several days on the artwork that merges natural elements with typography and geometry using extremely delicate line work. It is so rare that I get excited about tattoo art and this is definitely an exception, my jaw dropped on seeing just a few quick email attachments and I’ve since gone through their gallery of work four or five times. The pair will be back in Thonon-les-Bains in the fall and are scheduling appointments starting mid-November. See more of their work over on Facebook.

Mesmerizing Ceiling Canopy Installation Made with Thousands of Clay Pots

For their latest project the folks at Melbourne based March Studio have suspended nearly 4,000 upside down terracotta pots from the ceiling of the recently opened Gazi Restaurant. The striking hive-like ceiling installation was created by attaching clay pots of various sizes to steel rods. Fourteen different length rods were used to create the undulating abstract shape, and because the construction is porous, it allowed lights and services to either drop through the canopy or be hidden behind it.

Dalston House by Leandro Erlich

Today saw the opening of Dalston House - a new installation by internationally known Argentine artist Leandro Erlich created for the Barbican as part of their “Barbican Beyond” project.

Located on vacant lot on Ashwin Street in Dalston, east London, the artwork resembles a theatre set, with a detailed facade of a Victorian terraced house lying horizontally on the ground with mirrors positioned overhead to reflect visitors, giving the impression they are standing on, suspended from, or scaling the building vertically.

The house has been specially designed to resemble the houses that previously stood on the block, reminding us of the area’s rich history. The installation will be accompanied by talks, workshops, and live performances, each of which explore the various themes of the project including architectural history, urbanism, and perception. The exhibition is open now until 4 August, 2013, and entrance is free.
