Idris Khan

"Drawing his inspiration from the history of art and music as well as key philosophical and theological texts, Idris Khan investigates memory, creativity and the layering of experience. Khan’s works rely on a continuous process of creating and erasing, or adding new layers whilst retaining traces of what has gone before."

"The process allows the artist to tease out certain areas adjusting the source material so that the soul of the piece is manifested in Khan’s accreted interpretation.

For example, in Struggling to Hear… After Ludwig van Beethoven’s Sonatas, Beethoven’s entire series of sonatas becomes a dense wall of near blackness; a virtual illustration of the composer’s deafness.”

Award-winning artist Katharine Morling creates whimsical and often outlandish sculpture from porcelain and ceramics. Instead of simply making the pieces and leaving them in their ceramic form, the added touch of black in certain spots creates an illusive effect, making the everyday objects look like drawings in real life.

Hachiko before his burial in 1935

The Japanese dog was famous for his incredible loyalty. His owner passed away and didn’t come home on his usual train one evening in 1925. Hachiko returned to the station every day and waited for him to come home for 9 years until his own death. (via)
