Alles Plastik – All Plastic

Ein faszinierendes Video über die Arbeit von Aurora Robson, eine Künstlerin, die mit weggeworfenem Plastik arbeitet und daraus wunderschöne Skulpturen und Installationen schafft.

A fascinating video about the work by Aurora Robson, an artist who is working with trashed plastic, creating wonderful sculptures and installations.

Passend dazu habe ich kürzlich die erschütternde Doku “Trahsed – Weggeworfen” gesehen – sehr empfehlenswert!
Meine Internetrecherche zum Thema “Plastik vermeiden” hat mich zu diesen beiden Seiten geführt: Frau Schubert – besser leben ohne Plastik und Leben ohne Plastik.
Perfekter Soundtrack zum Thema: Jan Delays Lied “Plastik“.

.
The shocking and recommendable documentation “Trahsed” fits perfectly to this theme.
I found two interesting websides on the net (only in german): Frau Schubert – besser leben ohne Plastik and Leben one Plastik.
Now I will try to abstain from plastic wherever I can – but I already know: This will be hard!
Perfect soundtrack for this theme: Jan Delay´s song “Plastic“.

China 8 – Skulpturenmuseum Glaskasten Marl (3)

China 8 – Zeitgenössische Kunst aus China an Rhein und Ruhr
8 Städte, 9 Museen, 120 KünstlerInnen, 500 Werke
Diesmal: Skulpturenmuseum Glaskasten Marl:  “Die angehaltene Zeit – Video und Sound”
Das Museum ist eines der wenigen, in denen man keinen Eintritt zahlen muss – Kunst für alle! Das Konzept finde ich sehr gut!
In der Ausstellung hat mir am besten gefallen:
- “Before the Rain” von Yang Yongliang – ein Video wie eine animierte Collage
- die 8stündige Videoinstallation “Mute 2″ von Zhang Peili – eine Zusammenstellung von Überwachungskameras einer Textilfabrik in Kombination mit einem Näherinnen-Arbeitsplatz
- und sein Video “Happiness” – eine Kombination aus Ausschnitten aus früheren offiziellen chinesischen Filmen und einem ständig applaudierendem Publikum
- “Still Live 1-7″ von Wang Gongxin – sieben “Stillleben” in denen doch ein wenig Bewegung ist
- das verstörende 12 minütige “Endzeit”-Video “Low Tempe” von Yi Lian
- und natürlich die chinesischen Glückskekse!

China 8 – Contemporary art from China at Rhine and Ruhr
8 cities, 9 museums, 120 Chinese artists, 500 works
This time: Skulpturenmuseum Glaskasten Marl: “Arrested Time – Video and Sound”
This museum is one of the few where you do not have to pay entrance fee – art for all – I enjoy that concept!
I liked at the best
- “Before the Rain” by Yang Yongliang – a video like an animated collage
- the eigth-hour videoinstallation “Mute 2″ by Zhang Peili – a compilation of observation cameras from a textile factory in combination with a sewer´s workplace
- his video “Happiness” – a combination of parts of early official Chinese films and a constantly applauding audience
- “Still Live 1-7″ by Wang Gongxin  – seven “still lifes” with a littel motion yet
- the unsettling 12 minutes “end time”-video “Low Tempe” by Yi Lian
- and certainly the Chinese fortune cookies!

Als zweites war ich im Osthaus Museum Hagen:  “Paradigmen der Kunst – Installation und Objekte”
Die Käfige von Kum Chi Keung haben mir gut gefallen. “Grandmother´s House” von Dong Yuan hat mich fasziniert, weil alle einzelnen Elemente auf Leinwand gemalt und zu einer Installation zusammengefügt waren.

First I have been to Osthaus Museum Hagen: “Paradigms of Art – Installation and Object Art”
I really enjoyed the cages by Kum Chi Keung. And I was intrigued by “Grandmother´s House” by Dong Yuan because he painted every piece of this installtion on canvas and assembled it to an installation.
