Found Articles: The body as shelter - A conversation with Antony Gormley

This article has been inhabiting my mind for the past week - having re-read it's morsels of creative conceptual thought a few times, I believe it's an important interview for any contemporary artist or creative to be aware of.

May I have your words? Join me at an exhibition this weekend

The Substation’s ‘MinimART 4.0′ invites artists to push the boundary of art, and for this challenge I decided to activate my Word Collection in Singapore.

I am very pleased to invite you to the show, but if you are unable to come or you do not live in Singapore, fear not! I welcome you to join in online by contributing your words to become part of the artwork. You can do this before the exhibition opens to make sure your words become part of the sculpture, or do it during and after the event – the Word Collection Project is an ongoing, living, evolving text artwork.

The Spectacle of the London Olympic Ceremony 2012

I don't usually blog this sort of thing, but I was pretty impressed by this cultural spectacle. As were the hundreds of other watchers who had come to see the ceremony on the big screen at Greenwich royal naval college, which was a fantastic place to view it and a real display of the multicultural nature of London.

Contemporary Korean art at the Saatchi Gallery: YeeSookyung

The exhibition presents the largest survey of new Korean art to date, and highlights an exciting group of artists who have recently emerged on the global art scene, producing work that provides an arresting insight into the future of contemporary art in Korea. The show begins on 26th July, but if you pop into the gallery now you can see a taste of Korea coming through. Intricate oil paintings on aluminium surfaces by Hyung Koo Kang really draw you in, and beautiful 'translated vases' by Yeesookyung are growing in the lower gallery spaces. Made from 'ceramic trash', Yeesookyung's uncanny and bumpy objects have organic, bubbling forms featuring fragments of Korean patterned vases joined in a frankenstein-like manner to make new, growing forms.
