KRIS KUKSI’S FANTASTIC REALISM

"I’m sorry, did a person do that?!

That was pretty much my dumbfounded reaction to seeing Kuksi’s work in-person for the 1st time. As I lay on the floor to shoot pics of the scenes going on underneath this sculpture the realization washes over me that trying to consume the sheer level of detail in these intricate mini mythological universes he creates in one viewing might cause tiny explosions in your brain. 

Kuksi is an architect of worlds imagined, where these modern societies of plastic going on’s take on the turbulent fault of violence and the chaos of society at hand within its structure. And you can see them now at his current solo exhibit happening at the Joshua Liner Gallery /540 W. 28th Street/New York, NY

*Sculpture seen at Joshua Liner Gallery booth / Miami Project Art Fair 2013

 Anila Quayyum Agha: Intersections 

Created by mixed media artist Anila Quayyum Agha, this elaborately carved cube with an embedded light source projects a dazzling pattern of shadows onto the surrounding gallery walls. Titled Intersections, the installation is made from large panels of laser-cut wood meant to emulate the geometrical patters found in Islamic sacred spaces. Agha shares:

The Intersections project takes the seminal experience of exclusion as a woman from a space of community and creativity such as a Mosque and translates the complex expressions of both wonder and exclusion that have been my experience while growing up in Pakistan. The wooden frieze emulates a pattern from the Alhambra, which was poised at the intersection of history, culture and art and was a place where Islamic and Western discourses, met and co-existed in harmony and served as a testament to the symbiosis of difference. I have given substance to this mutualism with the installation project exploring the binaries of public and private, light and shadow, and static and dynamic. This installation project relies on the purity and inner symmetry of geometric design, the interpretation of the cast shadows and the viewer’s presence with in a public space.

Intersections is currently a finalist in the 3rd Annual See.Me: Year in Review Competition, and you can learn more about it here
