Continuing his musings on the meaning of home and how the physical structure and our lived experiences intersect, Do Ho Suh’s new installation My Home/s – Hubs is now on view at the Victoria Miro Gallery. By meticulously replicating homes he’s lived in as a child and adult, the Korean-born, New York- and London-based installation artist speaks to ideas of migration and identity.

The 1:1 scale structures, made with colorful translucent fabric, are staged in a manner that asks viewers to pass through spaces and corridors to move from home to home. In this way, Suh combines his Home Within Lees verder

Blurring the line between art and architecture, a creative and collaborative team based in Porto, Portugal named FAHR 021.3 constructs unique installations that alter their immediate environments.

Installed to mark and celebrate Porto’s 20th year as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, Eclipse adds a contemporary touch to the historic Amor de Perdição square.  The 6-meter, metallic purple sphere stands out against the traditional architecture that surrounds it, and offers a new view of the tried-and-true square.

Hand Drawn Architectural Sketches by Adelina Gareeva

Architecture student Adelina Gareeva drafts her work by hand, creating extremely detailed architectural portraits by putting pencil to paper rather than stylus to tablet. Gareeva has created an Instagram account for her laborious sketches, publishing drawings she’s completed of the Panthéon in Paris, Saints Peter and Paul Cathedral in Kazan, the multi-spired Saint Basil’s Cathedral in Moscow, and more.

Een kunstwerk van 350 vierkante meter zet je niet zomaar ergens neer. Toch hield het in 2015 de Nederlandse kunstenaar Levi van Veluw niet tegen om de Maastrichtse galerie Marres volledig over te nemen. Bij binnenkomst waanden bezoekers zich in een duister labyrint, dat leek op een laboratorium waar een professor zijn snode plannetjes bedenkt. Het was met name gewoon heel erg zwart allemaal.

Dit weten we nu, maar toen Relativity of Matter net geopend was, was het gehuld in mysterie. De kunstenaar besloot dat het meenemen van camera’s en ander filmmateriaal ten koste Lees verder
