Two art hot spots in Köln:
Though Takatos subjects are contemporary, all of his images are taken with a really old analogue camera, a Linhof Technika III from 1950, which gives them a lively and deep color spectrum. What’s also stunning is that the church is still in use. Right now, with the big print behind the altar, this creates quite a contrasting sight especially during service. Open till the 6th of May.
The big print glued onto the apse. With me in comparison, you see how big it is! From the front it seems deformed.
The real purpose reveals itself if you go up onto the church gallery through the little door you see below and then look on it again. Doesn’t it look like I photoshopped the print into this image? Like if it’s floating… Takato is rocking some precise calculation and glueing here.
Also still on: Mark Jenkins at Galerie Ruttkowski;68. Open till May, 18th.
Here some iPhone pics from my friends of the opening:
Life-sized sculptures. Some wasted…
Oh, there also comes a hand creeping up to me. (BTW my mom sewed that silk trench coat herself. Ain’t she amaaaazing!)
Here, having fun with my lovely friend Elli. She is an actress and stunningly beautiful. Really, you have to see her IRL. Her hair shines so bright that you get blinded and her skin is like a peach. Well, I think I’ll have to get behind her beauty secrets 🙂
