Art News: Peter Kogler’s Installations, Olivas & Brandt ‘Living Between Two Worlds’ Exhibit and Machu Picchu Reopens

PETER KOGLER’S INSTALLATIONS AT MITTERAND AND SANZ, ZURICH

Peter Kogler has  developed  an  approach  that  involves  a  series  of  recurring  motifs  that create a  mental  landscape.  Ants, brains, globes,  light  bulbs  and  interlacing  designs  offer variations  on  elements  of vocabulary  while  retaining  an  aspect  that  is purified, literally essential. Digitally modelled  then  organised  on  varied  surfaces  and  within  the  space,  in  a  two  and three‐dimensional  form, these  elements  create  many  social  metaphors.

For  this  exhibition  the  artist  appropriates  both  the  walls  and  the  space  by permutating these  motifs  from  the  picture  to  everyday furniture  such  as  a  table  or bench, thus  hallmarking  his  elaborate  vision  of  sculpture.

Peter Kogler exhibit currently running at Mitterrand+Sanz Contemporary Art in Zurich through May 22,2010.

The famed Inca citadel of Machu Picchu, in the mountains of the Andes, reopened to tourists yesterday after a two-month closure due to floods that washed out the rail link to the mountaintop ruins.

Actress Susan Sarandon was on hand for an ancient ceremony asking for the blessing of mother Earth and other rituals, including the sounding of an Incan welcoming trumpet. Read whole article: artdaily.
