Christine Anderson: Fenced Dragon Lost and Found

"Fenced Dragon Lost and Found" about death, grief. All materials used in the images come from a place where I found the carcasses of deer. The house and property seized deteriorated much faster than the deer was dead. I wanted to give the deer a bit of my creativity. So maybe we could all be heard two.

"I am not afraid of death, but the process of dying itself.

My brother had asked me if I wanted to go see foreclosed property where two deer died in an attempt to jump a fence.  I was interested in how the deer that could easily jump a six-foot fence could get impaled on a five-foot fence, so I asked my brother to drive me to the site.

I found that the carcasses of the deer were rotting on the fence like my brother had told me.  The two deer were in various states of decay on different parts of the property.  It was the first week of spring after a brutally cold and snowy winter. When the earth was buried in snow the deer tried to jump the fence and sank into the snow as they made their leap.  They had no hard ground to make the jump off of and ended up getting caught on the fence that was spiked at the top.  They died a slow painful death.

No one heard their cries; no one saw their struggle as they died. Predators had left their marks, including me. Am I a predator taking pictures making my marks or am I telling their story? I did not hear their cries or see their struggle.  I only saw the evidence of their slow struggle to die. And now I will also observe their decay.

I can tell their story, but will someone hear or see me?

Am I the deer? Taking my pictures that may or may not be seen.  Like the deer no one sees my struggles.  Or am I a predator taking the last thing the deer have left to give – their story.”

Barock byRenate Buserat the Bellelay Abbey Foundation

Protagonist of this year’s edition of the Bellelay Abbey annual art exhibition, Swiss artist Renate Buser presents Barock – a monumental photographic installation that celebrates and highlights the baroque architecture of the abbey.

Marking the tercentenary of the Swiss Foundation of the Bellelay Abbey, this year the exhibition invited Basel-based artist Renate Buser to display her work in the beautiful baroque setting of the abbey.

In her characteristic style blending photography, art and architecture, she took certain architectural details from the surrounding architecture and blew them up in size, sometimes reversing them as well. This realistic imagery is then presented set in between the columns and the arches throughout the rooms, making for a new and slightly off-setting space where perspective and proportions trick the eye of the visitor for an absorbing cinematic experience.

Object 12-1 Collection by Designer Matija Čop

Croatian designer Matija Čop might be relatively new to the game, being a graduate student, but his collection, Object 12-1 is a striking mixture of sculpture and conceptual fashion. Inspired by architecture and the chiseled stone material used to construct the Šibenik cathedral, Cop used one material that was laser cut into small pieces that were then assembled together using the “plug and feather” technique.

Each sculptural garment, while made from a contemporary material, utilizes similar qualities to a building being built from stone – small pieces that work together to become a new form. After three months of production, the dramatic collection shows striking works of art that might just change how we view the future of fashion.

Wall-Mounted Sugar Skull Trophy Heads by Krisztianna

If the Day of the Dead were extended throughout the four seasons and woodland nymphs pranced through the ghosts of fallen leaves, would even they be safe from the hunter’s rifle? Krisztianna’s “Muertita” series combines nature with the sugar skull aesthetic to create these otherworldy wall-mounted heads, a trophy dedicated to the extinction of all that’s magical and mysterious in the world.
