Tree-like installations made with unraveled rope by Janaina Mello Landini

Brazil-based artist Janaina Mello Landini creates tree-like installations made with long sections of unraveled rope carefully pinned to the walls of galleries. Her artistic output encompasses her knowledge of architecture, physics and mathematics and her observations about time, to weave her worldview. Her work transits between different scales – from the object to public spaces. The labyrinthine architecture has been the central axis of her research in the “Ciclotramas” series, made with ropes that break down into minimal threading, and “Labirintos Rizomáticos”, works in satin that result in the construction of multifocal perspectives, nullifying the traditional construction.

Fiery installation ablaze in the Swiss Alps by Douglas Gordon and Morgane Tschiember

douglasgordon_morganetschiember_ring_of_fire_1

Monumental land artwork by Douglas Gordon and Morgane Tschiember. ‘As close as you can for as long as it lasts’ uses fire, smoke and sound — a call and response between two artists — as a reference to the well-known history of yodeling in this particular area.
The large-scale, site-specific sculpture has been created in response to the landscape of Gstaad. Upon visiting the beautiful but terrifying mountain site, Douglas Gordon and Morgane Tschiember found beauty, fear, loneliness and a particular sense of melancholy. With these emotions in mind, the artists explored the idea of a lonely traveler who might seek companionship with another person in such a place, questioning whether this relationship is based on desire, fear or excitement of the unknown.
The fiery land art is on view as a part of Elevation 1049 through March 19, 2017.

Windspiral II – environmental art by Berman Bronwyn

windspiral-art-1

Windspiral II, sculpture in the landscape, by Bronwyn Berman.
Stainless steel frame, aluminium, timber support. Sculpture by the Sea 2006.

The inspiration for this work came from living high on a cliff in the Australian bush. It was a very wild and windy place. I made the prototype with a friend of mine who was visiting from America, we were experimenting with things we found around the place. It was one of the most windy days and we were having fun, we laughed and laughed all day. I think the work has that gesture, a certain freedom that comes from being with a good friend and being happy.
The shape is that of the wind, the colour and texture are of the Australian bush where things are silvery and scratchy.
