Studio Zimoun.

These days i’ve been really appreciating installations.  As I enter my 2nd wave of minimalism (my original minimalism phase was back in 2000-2002 where i literally lived with nearly no possessions), the idea of specific isolation seems more important than absolute reduction.  These installations by Studio Zimoun are fascinating for the detail they transfer when a specific object is placed in an organized manner in a limited space.

I really dig these fotos by Mario Pucic.  The stark minimalism, the soft colours, the framing, and the sense of space.

Onement 1.

 

Onement 1, 1948, Barnett Newman

Barnett Newman is easily one of my all-time favourite painters.  Why?  Because his work is brilliant, simple, minimalist, and of great taste in colour spectrum choices.  His paintings are also very very beautiful in person.  The majesty and depth of them does not accurately broadcast in online photos.

Pentagonia


Elektro Guzzi are a fantastic band from Austria.  The first time I heard them I thought “oh, minimalist electronic music” and then i realised that the were in fact far more than just an electronic outfit.  In fact, they use instruments quite creatively.  Definitely influenced by 70s Krautrock like Can and Neu, but interpreted to take in the best parts of modern electronica and minimalism to create a very current and very relevant sound.  There is much to enjoy in Elektro Guzzi records, and this song “Pentagonia” is from their latest album “Parquet”….which is fantastic, by the way.

Enigmatica Mars.

“A series of suspended frames diminish in size down the length of the gallery acting as a canvas for the display of surface specific projected visual sequences.”
