Marina Abromovic and Ulay, Rest Energy, 1980

photo via

For four minutes and ten seconds Abromovic and Ulay held an arrow pointed at Abromovic’s heart with the wait of their bodies. Small microphones were placed near each artist’s heart projecting the increasingly intense heartbeats to the audience.

Abromovic has stated “Rhythm 0 and Rest Energy were the most difficult pieces in my entire life of performance artist, because in both pieces I was not in charge.” The piece was meant to surrender complete and total trust between the artists.

Eduardo Paolozzi, Michelangelo’s David, 1987
From the Tate Gallery:

Paolozzi was walking past Harrods store one morning and saw a window dresser setting up a display which included a plaster cast of the head of Michelangelo’s marble sculpture of David. He temporarily borrowed the cast from Harrods and had another cast made from it at the Royal College of Art. Paolozzi sawed his cast in pieces and glued wooden blocks in the cuts. The attack upon the cast is partly a comment on the great plaster cast collection of antique sculptures that used to belong to the Munich Academy of Arts, and which was largely destroyed during student riots in 1972. When Paolozzi was a student at Edinburgh College of Art in 1943, part of the teaching was to draw from casts of Michelangelo’s David.

36 ventilators whirl 4.7m3 of packing chips
Latest installation from Zimoun uses simple materials to display turbulance - video embedded below:

From Creative Applications:

Opening this Saturday (April 26) at the Art Museum of Lugano in Switzerland, 36 ventilators, 4.7m³ packing chips is the new installation by Zimoun, the Bern-based artist known for his architecturally-minded platforms of sound. Zimoun yet again extends his installation inventory. Converting nine of the museum’s towering window spaces into ‘ventilation chambers’ (four ventilators are installed in each window) and filling them with polystyrene, Zimoun unleashes a perfect ‘plastic storm.’ Congregating into a mass that’s neither solid, gaseous nor liquid, the flakes perform a violent, otherworldy dance. With the phenonema trapped behind glass, we get to watch in wonder from the safety of the outside.
