A gallery with no sculptures, only a cloud floating within the space. ‘Nimbus’ is a new installation of Amsterdam-based artist Berndnaut Smilde, who refuses to explain how he managed to create a real cloud.
“Lithuanian photographer and artist Tadao Cern has been working on a series of hilarious portraits entitled, ahem, Blow Job, that depicts individuals enduring gale-force winds directly to the face. Say goodbye to the next 15 minutes, he’s taken over 100 portraits so far. And if you liked these, here’s a similar series by Jonathan Robert Willis from last year.”
This installation was constructed of a huge round lamp (2,5 m in diameter) filled with helium, hovering about 40 m. above and old square, Gl.Torv, in the old centre of Copenhagen. To make it look like the EARTH I had made a cover on which I painted the motive of the earth as it would look seen from out of space. The EARTH was only visible when it was dark. During the day I took down the EARTH and attached behind a roof invisible for people on the ground.
