Special Commission for 032c by DAVID OSTROWSKI

There are walls in our cities, in railway underpasses, on speedy thoroughfares lined with bad 1950s architecture, inside buildings with unlocked doors where the alcoholics who hang out at the corner store go to take a leak – there are walls as pretty as a painting by David Ostrowski.

CYPRIEN GAILLARD: L’Origami du Monde

 CYPRIEN GAILLARD has a thing for monuments—their grandeur, obviously, which is sometimes matched by the majesty of his own art projects (his 2012 film Artefact, originally shot using an iPhone and subsequently transferred to 35 millimeter film, comes to mind) but also, much more pointedly, the inevitability of their ruination—and the greater the monument, the…

To them, work is gliding over the surface of the world – over water on a surfboard; through powder on a snowboard; above concrete on a skateboard. They always make sure to take enough of every drug, to avoid getting trapped between worlds. But skating takes them somewhere you can't go synthetically.

ANDRO WEKUA

One does not look at Andro Wekua’s work. One stares – at the Technicolor seeping through a pierced old-world modernism; at the muzzled gazes of mannequins, disarmingly half-dressed. We stare at that which we do not understand, and Wekua’s figures, landscapes, and palette come from a parallel universe, brushing up against ours, overlapping in incidental imagery, but distinctly foreign. It is …
