Now we an admire one of the most interesting project by Christo The London Mastaba for Serpentine Lake, project for Hyde Park London. He created the sculpture’s floating platform which is is being made of polyethylene cubes anchored to the lakebed with weighted anchors. The total weight is 600 metric tons. Mastaba is known a type of ancient Egyptian tomb (Eternal house or House of Eternity) in the form of rectangular structure with inward sloping sides, with a flat-roofed, constructed out of mud-bricks. Worthy to think about interpretation of this project. Christo said: All interpretations accepted”. This monumental block in form of trapezoid with all barrels painted red/ blue and mauve can activate our curiosity. Especially this invisbile sctructure is very important, that’s way we see lightly and floatting sculpture. It’s amazing that this multicoloured project bringed on so many interpretation… Worth to visit this place at different times of the day, your interpretation can depends of light, perspective, weather. For me, it’s a symbol of natural passing time Worthy to think about interpretation of this project. Christo said: All interpretations accepted”.

I’m really interested, what’s your interpretation?

Powracam do Was z moimi letnimi inspiracjami! Tym razem jest to głęboka czerwień, chodź ta miłość trwa zdecydowanie bardzo długo! Postawiłam na kontrast granatu i czerwieni, to coś co zdecydowanie przypadło mi do gustu. Czerwień bez wątpienia potrafi zdziałać cuda w letnich stylizacjach. Poniżej kilka prac artystów takich jak Joseph Kosuth czy Raymond Parker, to właśnie ich prace chodzą mi po głowie tego miesiąca, za sprawą tej głębokiej czerwieni. Szczególnie cenię sobie prace Josepha, który za sprawą sztuki konceptualnej bawi się z publicznością a tym samym zachęca ją do do myślenia nad tym co tak naprawę widzi odbiorca…

Czerwień zawsze!


I’m coming back with my summer inspirations! This time I chose deep red colour, although this love lasts from really long time! I decided for contrast between navy blue and deep red, this combination definitely appealed to me. The red colour can works wonder, especially in many summers outfits. You can find below a few examples of art who inspired me during this month. Works by Joseph Kosuth or Raymond Parker cause that I’m thinking about these works all the time! Especially conceptual art by Joseph is close to my heart, in result his audience is involved in perception his art. It’s kind of play with audience in the art’s gallery.

Red is always a good idea!
