Art or Not? One of the pictures described below is a genuine art work: every Friday the ArtSlant team asks our discerning readers to indulge in a game of spot the difference. On Monday week the answer will be revealed on our social media: facebook, twitter, tumblr, instagram #1 "... is a vivid visual representation that expounds the dichotomous act of consumerism: on the one hand, the form and gigantesque proportions of this highly desirable food item are playful and cartoonish, yet, they belie the terror of abundance, the deformity of modern vegetable produce, and an overwhelming feeling, of, quite literally, having...

On September 9th, a robot was released into the Gulf of Mexico, set adrift in the Gulf Stream.

Once offshore, these passive robots—floating spheres one-meter in diameter with sensors submerged below sea level—will be left on their own, without human intervention. Their mission: to unite in the middle of the Atlantic, carried only by currents and the forces of nat... [more]

Jennifer Tee at Galerie Fons Welters 2/11/14 Posted 2/11/14

Galerie Fons Welters is proud to announce Jennifer Tee’s solo exhibition ‘Heart Ferment’. Tee’s sculptures and installations hover between their concrete forms and the anticipation of a moment in which these forms could be activated, or animated in some kind of ritual meditation. Her artistic practice foregrounds the need for both opposition and balance, in order to make sense of the material world and the inner soul. Take for example the titles of a series of ceramic urn...

Rob Hornstra at Huis Marseille Museum voor Fotografie December 14th, 2013 - March 9th
Posted 12/17/13

The exhibition is very noteworthy to visit. Rob Hornstra has his very own signature style, exceptional for a documentary photographer. In a certain way he tells his own stories by combining portraiture with interior photographs and occasionally a landscape. He uses colour to create an atmosphere that is both intimate and realistic _ with hard to avoid ‘nostalgic’ overtones when it comes to the worn-out interiors and environments of the former Soviet Union. His ‘snapshot’ st... [more]
