What am I dancing?

June 19, 2018

Believe it or not, I learned this dance in high school gym class.  Our “swords” were epees from fencing class.

I can still cut a move.  I tried it out once on the sprung dance floor in the castle at Blair Atholl in Pitlochry, Scotland.

Thanks to Old Air Force Sarge for the memories and the bagpipes!

Why am I saying, “look what we take for granite?”

June 18, 2018

Milena Naef juxtaposes the manufactured shapes of marble slabs with the organic forms of the human figure in her performative sculptural works. In her series ‘Fleeting Parts,’ the artist removes portions of Cristallina marble to create openings that are perfectly shaped to allow arms, legs, and torsos to emerge.

Naef, who lives and works in Amsterdam, describes her work in a statement: “Once tangible, the interaction with the concrete material allows for a space to ‘open’ in which a given context can be changed. The body itself with its physical presence and its absence becomes a vital aspect of the work. When do structures inhibit or liberate us and our physical form? What is the consequence of the fact that our bodies are always ‘filling space’?”
