Art Contemporany

Hi! I will talk about some different artist that interest me, that artists I sawfor first time in a galery in London all SAATCHI, the website is I like so much the contemporany art well not all but this website has a lot of interesting things. But the webside doen't have many information about it.

The first is a large installation call "Ghost" made for the artist Kader Attia. It's a group of Muslim women in prayer, Attia renders their bodies as vacant shells, empty hoods devoid of personhood or spirit. Made from tin foil - a domestic, throw away material. I like this instalation very much because Attia’s figures become alien and futuristic, synthesising the abject and divine. Bowing in shimmering meditation, their ritual is equally seductive and hollow, questioning modern ideologies - from religion to nationalism and consumerism - in relation to individual identity, social perception, devotion and exclusion. Attia’s Ghost evokes contemplation of the human condition as vulnerable and mortal; his impoverished materials suggest alternative histories or understandings of the world, manifest in individual and temporal experience. The first time that I saw it was for a test, I found out and I love it for the idea of comunity and that was just I look it for.

The other installation that I like so much and I used it in the same test was made for two cuban mans called " Guerra de la Paz" the name of the group is the union of their surnames because one called Alain Guerra and Neraldo de la Paz.

Originally sourcing their materials from the waste bins of second-hand goods shipping companies in Miami’s Little Haiti, Guerra De La Paz make their sculptures from the discarded items of daily life. Viewing their practice as a kind of ‘archaeology’, their work engages with the history inherent in common debris and its possibility for recycled usage. In Nine, a giant mound of clothing heaps with strata of prom dresses, Christmas jumpers, and embarrassing yesteryear fads, bearing down with the weight of a civilisation and its disowned memories. Beneath the fringes of the hulking mass can be seen the feet of nine people supporting the load, a testimony to the strength and value of community, It's in my opinion comun topic in this two installation, the union of the people that make community and a critic for that we are now and our attituds.
