Mirko Bratuša’s sculpture installation Heaters for Hot Feelings

Mirko Bratuša’s sculpture installation Heaters for Hot Feelings is composed of eight tactile, anthropo- and biomorphic pieces each of which about 2 m (7 ft.) high. Hidden electrical fittings heat, humidify and cool the fired clay sculptures. The heat generated by the cooling of the first sculptures will be used to heat the others. A network of connections is set up as a system of artificial bodies, which indicate their mutual dependence. The metaphorics of an artistic system constructed in this manner are universally applicable to modern society, in which everything happens in mutual relation: amassing wealth on one side of the planet leads to poverty on the other, exploiting nature causes natural disasters, social unrest changes political systems.

About Mirko Bratuša (1963): He graduated in Sculpture from the Academy of Fine Arts in Ljubljana in 1989, and continued his studies at the Academy of Fine Arts in Munich with Professor Leo Kornbrust from 1990 to 1992, and in 1993 at the Academy of Arts in Düsseldorf with Professor Tony Cragg. Among his many solo exhibitions are recent presentations at Círculo de Bellas Artes, Madrid (2005); Glesia Gallery, Ljubljana (2006) and Božidar Jakac Art Museum, Kostanjevica na Krki (2010).

Mirko Bratuša is part of a generation of Slovene sculptors which appeared at the end of the eighties under the heading of New Slovene Sculpture, following the model of New British Sculpture. The internationally best-known of this generation is sculptor Marjetica Potrč, and Tobias Putrih is noteworthy among their successors (both have exhibited previously at the Slovenian Pavilion at the Venice Biennale). Mirko Bratuša stands out atypically from this generation through his whimsicality and fascination with materials. His restless experimental spirit has led him to combine “old” sculptural media such as clay, wood and bronze with new industrially produced materials such as polyurethane, kerrock, electrical fittings and cooling systems. Since 1992 he is setting sculptural installations which are often interactive and include unusual technical tricks. His works hide a touch of humour, through which he presents his figures as the ironically “bright” future of posthuman society. http://www.mirkobratusa.si/

One man’s floor is another man’s feelings | Israeli Pavilion at the 54th International Art Exhibition, La Biennale di Venezia. Interview with Sigalit Landau

One man’s floor is another man’s feelings. Israeli Pavilion at the 54th International Art Exhibition, La Biennale di Venezia. Interview with Sigalit Landau by Ilari Valbonesi.

Based on Landau’s historical research, the launching point for the new installation is the small three-tiered Israeli Pavilion building in which her exhibit will dwell – a structure designed in the modernist style.  The title the artist has already given to her work for the pavilion, “One man’s floor is another man’s feelings” is a variation on the familiar saying “one man’s floor is another man’s ceiling”, which here becomes feelings. With this title, we might guess that the installation will evoke the interdependence of human beings and the sharing of riches. But the water that will be present all over the pavilion, like blood irrigating the body, is not only the precious liquid so scarce for billions of people, but it becomes a metaphor for the knowledge, sharing and feelings that connect us to each other and organize our common destiny. Like salt deposited on an object or penetrating a wound, the journey that Sigalit Landau is plotting for Venice, crystallizes the fears and hopes of these uncertain times.

Sigalit Landau was born in 1969 in Jerusalem. Her work has been shown in solo exhibitions at the MoMA, The Museum of Modern Art, New York, at the Gallery Kamel Mennour, Paris, at the Kunst-Werke Institute for Contemporary Art, Berlin, at the Tel Aviv Museum of Art as well as the Witte de With Center for Contemporary Art, Rotterdam, and is at the moment presented as part of the Centre Pompidou’s collections in the collective exhibition elles@centrepompidou.
