This summer chef Victoria Eliasdóttir and her brother Olafur Eliasson open SOE KITCHEN 101 as a temporary culinary space in Reykjavik

A year in the life of a tree. Every third week the artist Rune Bosse cut a branch of a beech tree, planed it until it was 2-3 mm., then put it in a press to retain the colour of the branch at the precise time of year.

This forest scenery never existed except for in Demand’s studio, where more than a hundred thousand leaves where hung with strings, and everything carefully staged. The photo hangs in one of the beautiful glass corridors that run through the gardens of the museum, where the boundaries between inside and outside blur. These glass framed views of cultured nature from the outside gardens are then reflected back onto the photo’s surface according to your changing position and light conditions. Standing in front of the photo, trying to enter the scenery with your gaze, you are then suddenly transported back outside in the gardens, like being suspended between two realms of constructed nature. #fakenature #anthropocene

A great artist has passed away. RIP #PerKirkeby (1938-2018)

Decolonizing the Art Museum: "If museums want to continue to have a place, they must stop seeing activists as antagonists. They must position themselves as learning communities, not impenetrable centers of self-validating authority." Olga Viso @nytimes nyti.ms/2Fz6cYv

“What does the alteration of our environment have to do with the limits of our imagination? And where is the link between scientific instrumentation and the question of “emotional orientation?” - Brian Holmes, Driving the Golden Spike.
