His entire life Ulrich Mikloweit is cutting and pasting objects from typewriter paper. Inspired by M. C. Escher’s graphic prints he creates a garden of polyhedra. You can look through the objects and be surprised of what you discover inside. 6 Würfel, 36 Quadrate is a game of 6 hexagons (cubes) engaged in one another. I really like the shadow on the wall.
You can see Ulrich’s polyhedra in Gallery Beeld & Aambeeld. The show runs until July 31. It is part of a series of exhibitions of ‘Bridges 2013’ in Enschede. I show my work in the Performance Factory, which is also part of the project.
The interesting exhibition ‘Paper’ at Saatchi Gallery in London shows artworks made of (mostly) paper. Yuken Teruya’s objects are remarkable. He cuts or tears trees from one side of a shopping bag (sometimes high end fashion boutiques, others MacDonald’s) and folds it inside. Then he places the bottom of the bag to the wall. The result is a peephole in which the light is shining beautifully from above through the cut out tree.
On the occasion of a party in London where my son showed his graduation film, my daughter wore tight pants decorated with fine hand embroidery. If you invert the drawing’s black and white, it looks like a beautiful dark tattoo on a white leg.
My son Jasper pinched his finger when a nightclub door was slammed by someone on an early morning two weeks ago. It was terribly painful. His finger swelled up and beneath the nail he felt his heart beat. He went to a hospital in Kingston upon Thames where they drained off the excess of blood by piercing his nail three times. After two weeks the finger has dwindled. The pain has vanished.
