A Dada-inspired artist, Johannes Baader, once ran into a church in Germany and yelled: “Jesus is a sausage!” I am still trying to absorb this koan-like adage, but perhaps the work of Ian Hughes sheds light on what exactly a ‘Jesus sausage’ might look like. Indeed, we may all be Jesus sausages (or have […]
One night in May 1980, in Gwang-ju, Korea, the city was occupied by the army and martial law was declared. Every possible means of exiting the city was blocked. It was the beginning of a massacre. Hundreds of demonstrators longing for democracy were killed and thousands of innocent citizens were wounded. It was, however, […]

Kathy Ruttenberg’s latest show of ceramic figures at Stux Gallery is largely inspired by recent trips the artist took to the North and South Poles. As in her previous work, we see that the individual human being is no longer sacred. Tree branches sprout from people’s heads and the human head, itself, seat […]
A prototype for the modern high-rise, the nick-named “Glass Houses”, ushered in a new era of modern architecture which arguably still exists today. Not only the eye of Neil Harris has focused on the Monika Sosnowska piece entitled “Tower”, now on display at Hauser & Wirth, that was directly inspired by Mies Van Der […]
