Magdalena Jetelova

Magdalena Jetelova Work from her oeuvre “Magdalena Jetelova used illuminated lines to expose communication structure of the landscape; Crossing King’s Cross – she uses lights to map out the future path of a train route as well as natural changes (in the Island Project / Islandský projekt – she enlists lasers to draw attention to the […]

Xavier Delory

Xavier Delory Work from Habitat. “Our countryside (in Belgium as well as in many other western countries) is monopolized by one specific type of house called ‘clé sur porte’ (turnkey) (def:Urban prefab cluster of similar forms implanted in the landscape without any effort of integration). The cycle ‘Habitat’ throws a look at this type of […]

Liddy Scheffknecht

Liddy Scheffknecht Work from scaffolding. “All architectural elements except the scaffolding were removed from the photograph of a building under renovation. The result is an autonomous “drawing“, which suggests the form of the erased building. The scaffolding, normally a temporary urban structure, was retained whereas the building, a permanent urban structure, was eliminated.” - Liddy Scheffknecht

Roni Horn

Roni Horn Work from her oeuvre. “…Horn explores the mutable nature of art through sculptures, works on paper, photography, and books. She describes drawing as the key activity in all her work because drawing is about composing relationships. Horn’s drawings concentrate on the materiality of the objects depicted. She also uses words as the basis […]

Gordon Matta Clark

Gordon Matta Clark Work from his oeuvre (including Conical Intersect and Office Baroque). “Like his father, the Surrealist painter Roberto Sebastian Matta Echaurren, Gordon Matta-Clark studied to be an architect. While it never became his profession, architecture—with its inextricable relationship to private and public space, urban development and decay—became his medium and subject matter. Using […]

Sarah Oppenheimer

Sarah Oppenheimer Work from various installations. I saw the Horizontal Roll installation in St. Louis about a year ago, it was a great piece that interacted extremely well with the environment. “Sarah Oppenheimer creates social experiments in her videos and architectural installations, exploring how individuals navigate constructed space. Folding is the primary exercise in Oppenheimer’s works […]

Jonas Criscoe

Jonas Criscoe Work from the West Collection. “My work depicts the new monuments of the contemporary American landscape – walled-in track homes, chain restaurants, and elevated highways. It explores how our ever-expanding consumer culture has shaped the environments in which we live. My paintings are shiny postcards that depict these monuments of contemporary America, reflecting […]

François Delfosse

François Delfosse Delfosse is a Belgian architect and, as far as I can tell, is not pursuing art beyond his own edification. As such, I could find no statement or review, but I wanted to share these with you regardless, because they are pretty amazing.  Cube shadow study n°8 Cube shadow study n°4 via PYTR75

Frank Kunert

Frank Kunert Work from Photographs of Small Worlds. Ironically, the first time I cam across Kunert’s work it was in a spam email titled “Award Winning Construction Projects” that featured the bottom image. Kunert is another example of why I am so grateful that I abandoned my model making project in its infancy. “The project […]

Wesley Meuris

Wesley Meuris Work from Cages (my title, his works are various cages in the series), Botanical World Archive, and Swimming Pool. “Since the nineties Wesley Meuris(*Lier,1977) has been fascinated by our relationship with architecture, and more especially by the way we convert particular patterns of thought, needs and desires into functions and codes of behaviour, […]
