Richard Serra Sculpture Redux

You know the giant metal sculptures of the world-renound sculptor artist Richard Serra? Well get on that! Read and roll! Then come back and see this direct homage (NOT DIRECTLY AFFILIATED) to Serra through room dividing walls. Hangers and all kinds of stuff too! Don’t put these on carpeting or clay. That would just plain spell disaster. Also be wary of hanging any long artwork or photographs.

A personal moment with me, Chris Burns, your humble narrator for this and many other posts:

Have you ever been to Minneapolis? Rich people live in Minneapolis. They do business. Poor people live in Minneapolis, too. They do artwork. If this “Serra” project were made in Minneapolis, I wouldn’t be surprised if they were made by one (the artists), and purchased by the other (the rich.) Happens all the time. ALL the time.

Incidentally, Serra wasn’t conceived or built anywhere near Minneapolis. The 2-B-2 Architecture group is Russian. And these walls were built on Russian soil. Be sure to check out the rest of the work by 2-B-2 available here at Yanko Design. They are totally amazing and splendiferous.

EDIT: My mistake! 2-B-2 are Ukrainian! A thousand apologies!

And lest we forget:

Can you imagine such a setup in your living room?

    These are obviously just renderings… and what a horrible rip-off of Serra’s amazing work. Talk about sucking the soul right out of an idea…

      It’s not a robbery… Magnificent Serra’s sculptures became an inspiration source. Besides, this project is a concept of an show-room interior/exhibition area. Such an space decision is pertinent in the shop interior (in my opinion)

    How can anyone actually endorse this as a product of design. Its closer to rape than anything, Serras work is not about the object, so turning it into an object is extremely upsetting and I’m sure he must have cringed in pain if he had the misfortune to take a look this, a curatorial mistake on the part of Yanko.
