Immense Phyllida Barlow

Phyllida Barlow’s mega-sculpture-installation makes the trip to visit the Tate Britain even more obligatory. When you step in you suddenly need to stay still and look around. As a spectator it’s the same natural reaction when getting inside of a cathedral: stand, look and breath.

 

‘I hope to arouse curiosity about sculpture,’ Phyllida Barlow

 

After the first strong image, I felt curious to walk through space to look into closer detail and to discover some kind of hidden minimal aspect behind this immense sculpture that invades space. Shape, colour and texture make the walk through the columns a delightful dance. You feel small and at the same time, you have an intimate moment like you where sneaking behind the scenes of a theatre.

Obviously the sculpture becomes part of the architecture as it uses space. You can see Barlow’s essence, the fullness of her ideas and the passion that drives her to create a so fantastic and embracing piece.The use of colour and texture, putting the objects and shapes in space, generating a 360 degrees installation that will surprise the audience.

“It is more to raise an issue about what sculpture is for me, and I hope that might communicate itself to an audience. It’s a strange medium in that it takes up space, it takes up our space. It brings things into the world, and there is already too much stuff in the world. So it’s kind of absurd, and its absurdity is what I find fascinating. So perhaps it will mean that people will have to walk around it. I hope that will arouse curiosity about sculpture, about what it is and why it is what it is.”

Raw Artists finally in UK

“RAW Natural born artists” is remarkable!

It’s an online platform in which artists from all over the world share their art. They are looking for talented people, natural born artists, generating an exclusive and impressive online portfolio. But this is not only about being seeing online, RAW celebrates events, generating unique experiences. The showcase jumps from our computer screens to a life performance. raw_werrt

The only occasion you will have to experience a RAW event in Europe, will be the 1rst of March in London! A chance impossible to miss. If you want to know more about the idea, their creators and how RAW became what it is today, check the video here.
