Ask me anything
my friend Ken posted one of Kajahl’s works earlier but I couldn’t help myself since Kahjahl Benes is another one of my favorites.
Benes’ work is on view now in eMerging at MoCADA.

Urs Fischer’s Dramatically Melting Sculptures
At last year’s Venice Art Biennale (2011), one of the standout installations involved a full-size wax replica of Giambologna’s 16th-century sculpture The Rape of the Sabine Women. Even more intriguing was that an “everyday” man wearing glasses stood facing the sculpture. Like giant candles, both slowly burned to the ground, melting minute by minute. On Fischer’s website, you can find photos by Stefan Altenburger that show the amazing progression. By capturing this dramatic melting, Fischer makes us think about the inevitable passage of time.
