Toilet Bowls Waterfall by the artist Shu Yong

This odd piece was presented during The festival of ceramics in Foshan, in South China’s Gunagdong Province. It’s exactly what it looks like: a 100 meters long and five meters height Toilet Seat Waterfall created out of 10,000 toilet accessories like toilets, sinks and other sanitary ware.

My mind is full of confronting ideas and expectations right now and this artwork by the artist Hans Hollein for the Venice Biennale in 1980 could perfectly represent these multiple facades of myself . ;)

Can’t wait to see the special reproduction made for the V&A Pos-modernism’s exhibition. Get the info here.

‘Stress’ by the artist Yoan Capote

Made out of concrete and bronze this huge sculpture was presented at Portugal Biennial in 2010, and symbolize the stress one can feel and the natural consequence of pressing the teeth against each other.

It’s a perfect picture of the stressful modern life.

Partisan Memorials in former Yugoslavia

While everybody is looking at new materials and modern constructions, let’s inspire ourselves in other direction: massive old concrete monuments. These are memorials in former Yugoslavia, stem of socialist modernist art in the early 60’s. They express strength and resistance. Beautiful and powerful crazy things in the middle of nowhere. They open scene for numerous associations; they could be ambassadors from far-away stars, or from a different, unrealised present.

Reaching for the sky, this will be a new big looping colored tower created by the award winning London-based artist Anish Kapoor. Being compared to the Tower Eiffel it is going to be an impressive new icon of British art at Stratford area, London. The aim of that construction is to help to increase the tourism in this area after the 2012 Olympics game.
