cut me to pieces

Art, exhibitions

During my last trip to the Met I became entranced by this optical reflective piece by Anish Kapoor. (As did everyone else in the room, there was literally a line to stand in front of it, hence no photographs of the entire thing) Standing from far away, the reflection was reversed, similar to looking into a spoon but once you are standing directly in front of it you are divided into hundreds of fragments, an effect I like to call Fly Face. It was disorienting, silly and endlessly interesting.

also a youtube video I found of the piece. It gives you a peek of the textural qualities up-close.

It is currently on view at the Met, located at the entrance into the Modern and Contemporary Galleries. 

*On a completely different note. Today I did my first guest blog post over on Irez Therefore I am, A Virtual Salon about Art, Culture Activism & Identity. I will be doing a couple postings over there a month from now on and I am really excited about the opportunity to become a part of this community. Read my first post HERE.
