      music by Lucas Thanos photographs by various artists sculptures by Louise Bourgeois Louise Joséphine Bourgeois (French: [lwiz buʁʒwa]; 25 December 1911 – 31 May 2010), was a French-American artist and sculptor. She was an influential figure in modern and contemporary art, and among her works of art were large spider structures which resulted in her being nicknamed the Spiderwoman. Her largest spider sculpture titled Maman stands at over 30 feet (9.1 m) and has been installed in numerous locations around the world. She became recognized as the founder of confessional art. In the late 1940s, after moving to New York City with her American husband, Robert Goldwater, she turned to sculpture. Her works often express themes of betrayal, anxiety, and loneliness. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Louise_Bourgeois) Maman (1999) is a bronze, stainless steel, and marble sculpture by the artist Louise Bourgeois. The sculpture, which depicts a spider, is among the world's largest, measuring over 30 ft high and over 33 ft wide (927 x 891 x 1024 cm). It includes a sac containing 26 marble eggs and its abdomen and thorax are made up of ribbed bronze. The title is the familiar French word for Mother. The sculpture was created in 1999 by Bourgeois as a part of her inaugural commission of The Unilever Series (2000), in the Turbine Hall at London's Tate Modern. This original was created in steel, with an edition of six subsequent castings in bronze. Philosophy and meaning The sculpture picks up the theme of the arachnid that Bourgeois had first contemplated in a small ink and charcoal drawing in 1947, continuing with her 1996 sculpture Spider. It alludes to the strength of Bourgeois' mother, with metaphors of spinning, weaving, nurture and protection. Her mother Josephine was a woman who repaired tapestries in her father's textile restoration workshop in Paris. Bourgeois lost her mother at the age of twenty-one. A few days afterwards, in front of her father who did not seem to take his daughter’s despair seriously, she threw herself into the Bièvre River; he swam to her rescue. Permanent locations Some of these editions in permanent collections often tour on exhibit: Tate Modern, UK — The permanent acquisition of this sculpture in 2008 is considered one of the Tate Modern's historical moments. Maman was first exhibited in the turbine hall and later displayed outside the gallery in 2000. It is currently not on display. It was received with the mixed reactions of amazement and amusement. The sculpture owned by the Tate Modern is the only one made from stainless steel. National Gallery of Canada, Canada — The National Gallery of Canada acquired the sculpture in 2005 for 3.2 million dollars. At that time, the price was deemed excessive by some critics, as it took around the third of the annual budget of the gallery. Guggenheim Museum Bilbao, Spain Mori Art Museum, Tokyo, Japan — On display at the base of Mori Tower, outside the museum. Leeum, Samsung Museum of Art, South Korea Temporary locations Tours and featured exhibitions of Maman include: 2001: Rockefeller Center Plaza, New York 2001: City Hall, The Hague, The Netherlands[citation needed] 2002: State Hermitage Museum, St. Petersburg, Russia 2003: Nytorv, Copenhagen, Denmark[citation needed] 2006: Mariakerke, Ostend, Belgium[citation needed] 2008: Jardin des Tuileries, Paris, France 2008: Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris, France 27 March 2007 - 2 March 2008: Institute of Contemporary Art, Boston, Massachusetts[citation needed] 18 October 2008 - 25 January 2009: Museo di Capodimonte, Naples, Italy[citation needed] 2011: Fundación Proa, Buenos Aires, Argentina Museu de Arte Moderna (MAM), São Paulo, Brasil, 2011 Bundesplatz, Bern, Switzerland, 24 May 2011 - 7 June 2011 Bürkliplatz, Zürich, Switzerland, 10 June 2011 - 2 August 2011 Place Neuve, Geneva, Switzerland, 3 August 2011 - 28 August 2011 Fondation Beyeler, Riehen/Basel, Switzerland, 3 September 2011 - 8 January 2012 Kunsthalle, Hamburg, Germany, 23 January 2012 - 17 June 2012 Qatar National Convention Center, Qatar - The Maman sculpture; exhibited from January 20 – June 1, 2012, at the Qatar National Convention Centre as the centerpiece of the Conscious and Unconscious exhibition; the first solo exhibit of Bourgeois’ work to be displayed in the Middle East.

          music by Lucas Thanos footage by various artists The Easter Island Statues Moai location: Easter Island Easter Island (Rapa Nui: Rapa Nui, Spanish: Isla de Pascua) is a Chilean island in the southeastern Pacific Ocean, at the southeasternmost point of the Polynesian Triangle. Easter Island is famous for its 887 extant monumental statues, called moai, created by the early Rapa Nui people. In 1995, UNESCO named Easter Island a World Heritage Site, with much of the island protected within Rapa Nui National Park. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Easter_Island) Moai Listeni/ˈmoʊ.aɪ/, or mo‘ai, are monolithic human figures carved by the Rapa Nui people from rock on the Chilean Polynesian island of Easter Island between the years 1250 and 1500. Nearly half are still at Rano Raraku, the main moai quarry, but hundreds were transported from there and set on stone platforms called ahu around the island's perimeter. Almost all moai have overly large heads three-eighths the size of the whole statue. The moai are chiefly the living faces (aringa ora) of deified ancestors (aringa ora ata tepuna). The statues still gazed inland across their clan lands when Europeans first visited the island, but most were cast down during later conflicts between clans. The production and transportation of the 887 statues are considered remarkable creative and physical feats. The tallest moai erected, called Paro, was almost 10 metres (33 ft) high and weighed 82 tons; the heaviest erected was a shorter but squatter moai at Ahu Tongariki, weighing 86 tons; and one unfinished sculpture, if completed, would have been approximately 21 metres (69 ft) tall with a weight of about 270 tons. The islanders themselves tore down the standing moai after their civilization broke down.

                music by Lucas Thanos sculptures by Salvador Dali location: London, UK; Old Port of Marseille, France 'Profile of Time' by Dalí This sculpture echoes Dalí's famous 1931 painting ‘The Persistence of Memory’ in which the famous melted watch appeared for the first time. As the watch liquefies over the tree, it forms into a human profile, underlining the interminable relationship between man and time. The unexpected softness of the watch also represents the psychological aspect whereby time, whilst considered to be precise and fixed in its nature, can, in fact, vary significantly in human perception. All men must bend to the passing of time. We see Dalí’s profile in the face of the clock. There is a tear falling from his eye, lamenting the path of life that all men must travel. -I.A.R. Art Resources (http://www.chron.com/entertainment/arts-theater/slideshow/Dali-The-Sculpture-Collection-91155/photo-6691782.php) Elephants in the work of Dalí The elephant is a recurring theme in the works of Dalí, first appearing in his 1944 work Dream Caused by the Flight of a Bee Around a Pomegranate a Second Before Awakening, and also in The Temptation of Saint Anthony and Swans Reflecting Elephants. "The Elephants" differs from the other paintings in that the animals are the primary focus of the work, with a barren graduated background and lack of other content, where most of Dalí's paintings contain much detail and points of interest (for example Swans Reflecting Elephants which is somewhat better known within Dalí's repertoire than "The Elephants".[2] The stork-legged elephant is one of the best-known icons of Dalí's work and adorns the walls of the Dalí Museum in Spain. There are various cultural depictions of elephants, where they are often viewed as symbols of strength, dominance and power due to their bulk and weight. Dalí contrasts these typical associations by giving the elephants long, spindly, almost arachnid-like legs, once described as "multijointed, almost invisible legs of desire".[5] Dalí enhances the appearance of strength and weight by depicting the elephants carrying massive obelisks on their backs, however, on close inspection it can be seen that these weights are floating. The obelisks on the backs of the elephants are believed to be inspired by Gian Lorenzo Bernini's sculpture base in Rome of an elephant carrying an ancient obelisk, and was mentioned in several communications of the artist, so can be considered a reliable claim. "The Elephants" is a good example of a surrealist work, creating a sense of phantom reality. "The elephant is a distortion in space", one critic explains, "its spindly legs contrasting the idea of weightlessness with structure."; "contrasting weight and space" (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Elephants) Salvador Domingo Felipe Jacinto Dalí i Domènech, 1st Marqués de Dalí de Pubol (May 11, 1904 – January 23, 1989), known as Salvador Dalí (/ˈdɑːli/;[1] Catalan: [səɫβəˈðo ðəˈɫi]), was a prominent Spanish surrealist painter born in Figueres, Spain. Dalí was a skilled draftsman, best known for the striking and bizarre images in his surrealist work. His painterly skills are often attributed to the influence of Renaissance masters. His best-known work, The Persistence of Memory, was completed in August 1931. Dalí's expansive artistic repertoire included film, sculpture, and photography, in collaboration with a range of artists in a variety of media. Dalí attributed his "love of everything that is gilded and excessive, my passion for luxury and my love of oriental clothes" to an "Arab lineage", claiming that his ancestors were descended from the Moors. Dalí was highly imaginative, and also enjoyed indulging in unusual and grandiose behavior. His eccentric manner and attention-grabbing public actions sometimes drew more attention than his artwork, to the dismay of those who held his work in high esteem, and to the irritation of his critics.

An endless lake of promise and depth Fades fast into the distance. What do I fiind encoraching On that abandoned horizon? Only death awaits this vantage point. My eyelids stretch, Now, far too wide To find, in focus, that fool's paradise.

                    music by Lucas Thanos photographs by various artist sculpture 'Cloud Gate' by Anish Kapoor Location: Millennium Park, Chicago, Illinois, United States Cloud Gate is a public sculpture by Indian-born British artist Anish Kapoor, that is the centerpiece of AT&T Plaza at Millennium Park in the Loop community area of Chicago, Illinois. The sculpture and AT&T Plaza are located on top of Park Grill, between the Chase Promenade and McCormick Tribune Plaza & Ice Rink. Constructed between 2004 and 2006, the sculpture is nicknamed The Bean because of its bean-like shape. Made up of 168 stainless steel plates welded together, its highly polished exterior has no visible seams. It measures 33 by 66 by 42 feet (10 by 20 by 13 m), and weighs 110 short tons (100 t; 98 long tons). Kapoor's design was inspired by liquid mercury and the sculpture's surface reflects and distorts the city's skyline. Visitors are able to walk around and under Cloud Gate's 12-foot (3.7 m) high arch. On the underside is the "omphalos" (Greek for "navel"), a concave chamber that warps and multiplies reflections. The sculpture builds upon many of Kapoor's artistic themes, and it is popular with tourists as a photo-taking opportunity for its unique reflective properties. The sculpture was the result of a design competition. After Kapoor's design was chosen, numerous technological concerns regarding the design's construction and assembly arose, in addition to concerns regarding the sculpture's upkeep and maintenance. Various experts were consulted, some of whom believed the design could not be implemented. Eventually, a feasible method was found, but the sculpture's construction fell behind schedule. It was unveiled in an incomplete form during the Millennium Park grand opening celebration in 2004, before being concealed again while it was completed. Cloud Gate was formally dedicated on May 15, 2006, and has since gained considerable popularity, both domestically and internationally. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cloud_Gate) Sir Anish Kapoor, CBE RA (born 12 March 1954) is an Indian sculptor. Born in Bombay, Kapoor has lived and worked in London since the early 1970s when he moved to study art, first at the Hornsey College of Art and later at the Chelsea School of Art and Design. He represented Britain in the XLIV Venice Biennale in 1990, when he was awarded the Premio Duemila Prize. In 1991 he received the Turner Prize and in 2002 received the Unilever Commission for the Turbine Hall at Tate Modern. Notable public sculptures include Cloud Gate in Chicago's Millennium Park; Sky Mirror, exhibited at the Rockefeller Center in New York City in 2006 and Kensington Gardens in London in 2010; Temenos, at Middlehaven, Middlesbrough; Leviathan, at the Grand Palais in Paris in 2011; and ArcelorMittal Orbit, commissioned as a permanent artwork for London's Olympic Park and completed in 2012. Kapoor received a Knighthood in the 2013 Birthday Honours for services to visual arts. He was awarded an honorary doctorate degree from the University of Oxford in 2014.

The piece was monumental. Despite several of us having worked on the project for well over a year, even the core project team members were awed by the terrible beauty and sheer size of the horse and cart. Standing 50 feet high, weighing 30 tons (with each wheel 2,500 pounds), it dominated the playa and served as a landmark to guide Burners, especially at night. We knew all the dimensions beforehand, but until we actually stood next to the horse, we didn’t really comprehend how big she was. For many folks, the fact that the horse actually made it to Black Rock City was the most unexpected turn of events. We raised $120K in three months; built the horse, cart, and Gates of Troy in six weeks; erected Troy Camp — all six stories plus six A-frames and three towers — in five days; and installed one of the playa’s most memorable works of art. And this was our first Burning Man project! Our biggest surprise on the playa (especially to the member of the pyro team working in the head of the horse) was the premature bolting of the beast. The “slaves” recruited to pull the horse revolted and took off earlier and far faster than we anticipated. While we were at first dismayed by this development, it delights us now and is in keeping with Burning Man’s spirit of anarchy. How fortunate that no one was injured or worse as the horse reached speeds estimated at eight mph. Once Douglas Bevans managed to head off and stop the runaways, the DPW worker who was spreading decomposed granite at the burn site finished the job. Remnants of the brass and percussion corps reassembled to play a truncated portion of the processional composed for the event by Douglas. We reorganized the former slaves, and they completed the horse’s passage through the Gates of Troy to much jubilation and relief. The ignition and cremation of the horse was breathtaking. Artemis, goddess of archery, fired the first flaming arrow, which was followed by volleys from 20 other archers. The horse bled dripping flames and reacted with snorts of sparks, a fiery mane, and concentrated salvos of fireworks that turned the skies red. Stoked by fuel within, the flames rose high, and the panels forming the cubistic exterior quickly disappeared to reveal a spare, elegant skeleton. Pieces of lumber fell until only the neck and head, floor, and legs remained. Finally, the center could not hold, the front legs collapsed, the horse bowed her head then lay her heart upon the ground gracefully and as if in slow motion. It was quite a rite of passage for the horse and all who worked on her.
