"Some people ask me if I try to break the taboos through my work. My answer? No, because I do not see them as taboos. So why would I be breaking them?"

We know suffering is everywhere. There are pointless and unnecessary evil in this world that are rationalized and justified for the benefit of some. Yet the world still possess its beauty within. While I said Tehching is not embracing life, I think the man is embracing its darkness. Therefore, the wholeness and the oneness of life. This what appears to be paradoxical is what I experience from his art and perhaps therefore, from my own life.
To hug and to embrace, the individuals need to accept each other. There is the physical warmth and touch of bodies. What happens when these elements are absent?
"I was not there to produce any kind of art. I was not seeking for any kind of beauty. I photographed my mother quietly without much conversation. I spoke to her through the act of taking photographs and she spoke to me by being photographed by my camera."
How can art, in both the formal and informal sense, be made constructively therapeutic for the everyday viewer? Large and looming, and inexplicably beautiful, Twombly’s paintings seduce, and are irrevocable examples of the art experience being both emotional and intellectual.
The mess of gravity-bound materials, at first a contradiction to Calder’s practice, actually comes to parallel a fundamental idea – that of chaos controlled.
From life giving as well as death dealing, from a gentle sprinkling to a torrid downpour, rain has magical powers to entwine a multitude of human emotions.
Every subject in a photograph is someone’s loved one or at least somebody recognizable in someone else’s memory. Photographs preserve some kind of memory. Memory cannot be seen in photographs, but it can be evoked since photographs are, as Barthes says, “the past and the real” from previous experiences.
“I know these projects are totally irrational, totally useless,” he added. “The world can live without them, nobody needs them, only me and Jeanne-Claude. She always made the point that they exist because we like to have them, and if others like them, it’s only a bonus.”
"Many things change over time. People change, the ways people talk change, and social systems change."
“We have a new vision and a new social life, but we have not adapted the house accordingly.”
MiA Collective Art is a collaborative media platform and project space for artists of inspiring minds. Like the wind that carries the different scents of one million flowers and the bees that fly and gather nectar from various flowers to transform it into honey, it is our mission to create a positive impact on the process of artistic creation. We believe the true contribution art can make to the future of humanity lies in the ability to represent a new meaning of human history in our time. More
