el anatsui

the brooklyn museum, home to ghanaian astist el anatsui's frist solo us exhibition, describes his pieces as "monumental", which would certainly be an apt word for their painstaking construction. made of wood, metal and found objects, they're the love child of an african sculpture and tapestry. my wall wants one.

totalitarian chic

communism might not be so sweet, but those totalitarians knew how to make a monument. brutalist? severe? maybe, but i'm kind of liking these in the former yugoslavia. i stumbled across them in the daily mail of all places. speaking of liking stuff, i'm also liking that i'm posting again after over a year. so for the two people that might see this, go get your hammer and sickle.
