core.form-ula is curating Miya Ando’s first large-scale works show entitled Shinobu [perseverance] to open October 7 at the de Castallane gallery. Her show will be comprised of large scale steel wall works and her series of special edition hot-rolled steel skateboards created for Element. The Steel skateboards are an exact size/thickness replica of a traditional wood skateboard, hand finished with fire, acid, patina and automotive lacquer. Ando will also be showing a hot-rolled steel 36″ x 48″ x 72″ skateboard ramp/sculpture collaborative piece (created with Shelter Serra) which will be etched by muriatic acid-coated skateboard wheels ridden on the ramp. Finally, she will be creating and showing monotypes created as an interactive performance piece on the skate ramp. read more
“Cinderella’s Chair” by Anna Ter Haar, is a follow up of “Buitenbeentje”. Prostheses of glass, like a prosthetic leg, custom made for each chair. Glass is a malleable material when heated, so the glass was blown onto the chair, which provides every chair with its own unique prosthesis. Glass however, is also a very fragile material. It is not often used for purposes of construction. The legs of glass are strong enough to carry weight though. One can easily sit on the chairs, something you do not expect when you see them.
