Giuseppe Penone, Svolgere la propria pelle, 1970-71

From the Metropolitan Museum of Art:

Arte Povera was a uniquely Italian variant on the Conceptualism of the late 1960s and early ’70s. In place of skepticism and doubt, artists such as Michelangelo Pistoletto, Giovanni Anselmo, Giuseppe Penone, and others showed an unfailing confidence in the possibility of reclaiming the individual from the deadening effects of consumer culture; the group’s critical mouthpiece, Germano Celant, described the artist’s new role as “the free self-projection of human activity.”

In this piece, Penone photographed a glass slide pressed against different parts of his body until he had recorded his entire anatomy; the corporeal fragments (numbering more than one hundred) were then reassembled into a grid of tiny mercator projections mapping his personal landscape. The artist also created versions of this piece as a book and as printed images on photosensitized windows in an exhibition hall.

girls being kept out of the sciences and pushed into the humanities; the humanities being valued less in our society than the sciences; and the humanities and sciences being looked at as stark opposites that couldn’t possibly be enjoyed for the same reasons are all problems that need to in some degree be tackled together

M+ Museum: The Making of Neon Signs

Hong Kong is a city that’s strongly associated with multicoloured neon lights sprawling all over the place.

M+ museum launched Neonsigns.hk, a project that aims at recording and preserving the city’s visual culture as it’s slowly disappearing due to light pollution regulations.

Take a look at one of the nostalgia-infused video documentaries of the project that shows the craftsmanship behind neon signs.
