One Spirit Showcase Photographic Diary documents the work of three former students who partook in a photography residency. The project was co-ordinated by Futurecity and sponsored by Hines, and the students had an opportunity to document the demolition and rebuilding of new offices at One Grafton Street. They were merely asked to look and more importantly to see. It was up to them how they responded. They each underwent safety instruction and were let loose, so to speak. The book documents their efforts.
Artists: Dzenana Hozic, Alana Lake, Kraig Wilson

Michael Petry’s The Landscape of the Gods

Michael Petry opens a new exhibition The Landscape of the Gods next week at HSBC Space. He will be making a landscape installation of his new acrylic on canvas paintings. Each individual painting references the idea of heaven in various world religions.

The Tunisian/French artist eL Seed’s installation Perception, was painted across 50 buildings in Cairo without the consent of the Government who have stopped street artists making work, and censure artists across many media. The installation was in an area called Manshiyat Nasr, where Coptic Christians live. They are called Zabaleen (the garbage people) but do not use this term themselves. They collect the city’s rubbish and recycle it, yet are discriminated against because of their work, and they are seen as dirty. The text eL Seed used is from Saint Athanasius of Alexandria, a 3 rd century Coptic Bishop and states: ‘?? ???? ??? ?? ???? ??? ?????? ??? ???? ?? ???? ?????’ (Anyone who wants to see the sunlight clearly needs to wipe his eye first). The anamorphic image took the artist and a team of workers over three weeks in install, and it could clearly be seen from the nearby Moqattam Mountain.

The Word is Art.

The Word is Art is a fascinating global overview of how contemporary artists incorporate text and language into work that speaks to some of the most pressing issues of the 21st century

How to Show It

The gallery experience is work + space + installation, and while that is a sensible order of importance, the presentation can certainly make a big difference.
