In Casa de America, Madrid, Alicia created these streaming sculptures that utilize approximately 5,000 books a piece. Like the morning after a night out with a little too much drinky, these installations seem to be purging the poison that’s inside them, though literary knowledge may be something worth keeping down.

gregory euclide has developed a microcosmic landscape installation entitled ‘held within what hung open and made to lie without escape’ made from park trash. the work possesses a landscape painting measuring 7 ft by 5 ft resting at eye level. it is set within a gilded frame that is interrupted by paper-as-water flowing from the canvas into the gallery space which then evaporates from a riverbed. boulders are cast from the rocks taken from central park, while the grass is formed from glue, paint and hair. on the right side of the work, several cut plastic bottles are clustered together, existing as miniature isolated environments within the piece. euclide created several dioramas constructed from found trash such as plastic, foam, sponge, and fertilizer he accrued while walking in a park. these items helped sculpt a world depicting what the artist sees as the ‘same kind of fake control over nature that allows us to be comfortable with the destruction of it’.
It’s not just for french fries and high blood pressure anymore: Yamamoto creates these sprawling labyrinthine designs using only salt. Also given to family members at the end of a funeral to ward off evil spirits, Motoi hopes that each line and branch of salt leads him to a memory of his sister, who died of brain cancer. This exhibit is currently showing at Hakone Open Air Museum in Kanagawa, Japan.
