Emma Bass at Royal Academy in LONDON !

Royal Academy
Photography Room
 
People and paintings
Burlington House, the home of the Royal Academy.   The sculpture is “Spyre" by Ron Arad RA As is traditional, the courtyard becomes an exhibition space in its own right; this year it’s a 16m tall kinetic sculpture. Each segment moves at a different speed, meaning every movement is unique and will never be repeated. At the very tip is a CCTV camera, live-streaming the courtyard footage onto the screen behind.

 A selection of artworks shown at this year's Summer Exhibition ... Anish Kapoor, Gilbert & George, Pierre & Gilles, Richard Wilson to name a few!
“Marie Antoinette, The Queen’s Hamlet”, photograph by Pierre & Gilles
“Avocado, Coconut, Egg”,  an extraordinary work by Ghanian artist El Anatsui’s work made of bottle caps/foils woven together to make an extraordinary fabric... one of my favourite works in the show!
Bean from New York observing the strange and wonderful “Migration”, sculpture by Cathy de Monchaux
Mending, Restoration”, sculptures by Japanese artist Aono Fumiaki... sculptures from remnants of the Japan earthquake and tsunami.   Broken can be made beautiful, and find renewed potential.
 
 
 
“Beard Aware” by the famous photographic duo Gilbert & George  (and exhausted viewers... the people were often just as interesting to photograph as the artworks!)
“Iggy”, bronze by Stephen Haines
“Avocado, Coconut, Egg”,   by Ghanian artist El Anatsui, RA “Self-portrait as Charcoal on Paper” by duo Zatorski & Zatorski “Carrying the Skeleton” by Marina Abramovic, RA
