Bouke de Vries (previously) refers to some of his porcelain sculptures as “three-dimensional still lifes.” The artist, who was born in the Netherlands and now lives in London, creates sprawling assemblages that resemble a classic bowl of fruit or table setting frequently found in Dutch art. “I compose these pieces as, after the painter has finished with them, the ceramics get broken and decayed, and I breathe new life into them. The butterfly in still life is a symbol for the resurrection in (the) way I see what I do through my work,” he tells Colossal. In de Vries’s works, though, the seemingly mundane scenes are fractured with bursting ceramics, encroaching insects, and decaying fruit.
The artist began working with porcelain as a restorer for 15 years before embarking on his own practice, which begins with a search for … Read the rest
Around this time in past years, collectors and art-world elite would have been seen congregating at the Frieze art fair in London’s Regent’s Park. But that isn’t the case this year, with the coronavirus having forced the cancelation of most art fairs, including Frieze London and its sister edition Frieze Masters. The fairs must go on, however, and Frieze London and Frieze Masters have now moved most of their offerings online. A total of 250 galleries are participating in the digital iteration, which launched today in VIP previews. It’s set to have its public run from October 9 to October 16.
Frieze is responding to the shifting digital landscape of the art market, which is still experiencing uncertainty due to the pandemic. This online edition provides vendors a platform to exhibit online-offline showcases, bringing works featured both in viewing rooms and in current exhibitions up at physical gallery locations.

It features a fresh crop of underground Afro-Fusion artists like NU and Yoshiii, and rappers from Toyin’s college (Penn State University) association like Gaël, Angie On Mars, and Shalom Dubas – who serves a vivid 2 part verse on the idiosyncratic project closer.

After embarking on both permitted and illegal ventures into the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone, British writer and photographer Darmon Richter was able to document the ghostly ruins and abandoned structures throughout the hazardous region. He captures eerie Cold War-era relics in a series of mysterious photographs, including a paint-curling mural venerating Soviet heroes and the room where the initial malfunction, which decimated an area now part of Belarus, Ukraine, and Russia, occurred in 1986. Decades later, the nuclear disaster still is considered one of the worst catastrophes throughout history.
Published by FUEL, Chernobyl: A Stalkers’ Guide encompasses Richter’s unprecedented access to the mysterious zone in its 248 pages. The volume is available from the publisher or for pre-order on Bookshop… Read the rest
When I first visited Lin May Saeed’s Berlin apartment/studio two years ago, the Iraqi-German artist and animal liberation activist was in the process of carving a polystyrene sculpture as two large rabbit roommates hopped around, enjoying the nontoxic snow-like flakes that were falling to the floor. That sculpture was Girl with Cat (2019), which depicts a young woman kneeling next to her feline companion, whose large, slender body resembles those of the cats found in hieroglyphs and ancient statuettes. Saeed told me that the work was inspired by the late German activist and sociologist Birgit Mütherich, whose 2003 essay, “The Social Construction of the Other: On the Sociological Question of the Animal,” reveals that the cat-worshipping ancient Egyptians had no word for “animal.” For the sculpture’s debut at the Jacky Strenz gallery in Frankfurt last year, Saeed, who in 2001 graduated … Read the rest
