Abelardo Morell - Camera Obscura (2007-10)

Artist’s statement:

“I made my first picture using camera obscura techniques in my darkened living room in 1991. In setting up a room to make this kind of photograph, I cover all windows with black plastic in order to achieve total darkness. Then, I cut a small hole in the material I use to cover the windows. This allows an inverted image of the view outside to flood onto the walls of the room. I would focus my large-format camera on the incoming image on the wall and expose the film. In the beginning, exposures took five to ten hours.

Over time, this project has taken me from my living room to all sorts of interiors around the world. One of the satisfactions I get from making this imagery comes from my seeing the weird and yet natural marriage of the inside and outside.”

Cornelia Parker: Cold Dark Matter: An Exploded View, 1991
The visual cacophony that Parker creates in this mixed media installation is stunning; we particularly like her use of light and shadow to expand the piece’s boundaries past their physical edges. If you stumbled across this work in a museum, how long do you think you’d spend looking at it?

This week’s Modern Art Notes Podcast features Barbara Kruger, whose most recent commission, Belief + Doubt, is on view at the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden. (The work officially opens on August 20, but it is visible now.)

Kruger was the subject of an Ann Goldstein-curated 1999 retrospective at MOCA, an exhibition that traveled to the Whitney Museum of American Art. Her installation at — and actually on — the Italian Pavilion at the 2005 Venice Biennale helped her win the Biennale’s lifetime achievement award. The most recent major monograph on Kruger’s work was published in 2010 by Rizzoli.

The second guest on the program is art historian and critic Karen Wilkin. Along with William Agee and Irving Sandler, Wilkin is the curator of “American Vanguards: Graham, Davis, Gorky, de Kooning and Their Circle, 1927-1942,” on view now at the Amon Carter Museum of American Art. The exhibition presents the too-little-known Graham as the hub around which that generation of American modernists revolved.

Takayuki Hori - Oritsunagumono (Things Folded and Connected), 2011

“A collection of origami works created to highlight the environmental threat of pollution to a variety of species native to Japan’s coastal waterways.

Each translucent sheet is printed with images either of fragments of an animal’s skeleton or of discarded objects that are often ingested by the animals. 

Using the ancient tradition of folded paper, Hori assembles the pages into 3D models. Once the paper has been folded, the printed components are united as a whole, telling the visual story of the animal’s plight of survival in an increasingly polluted and hazardous ecosystem.”
