The 8 artist pavilions for the Tokyo Olympics

The 8 artist pavilions for the Tokyo Olympics

Emanuele D'Angelo · 1 month ago · Design

On the occasion of the Games of the XXXII Olympiad in Tokyo, under the joint initiative of the Tokyo Metropolitan Government, the Arts Council Tokyo and the Pavilion Tokyo 2021 Executive Committee, sports and architecture will merge together.

As in every Olympics also in the one that will take place from July 23 to August 8, 2021 in Tokyo, eight temporary pavilions will be built, the artists and architects involved are: Kazuyo Sejima, Yayoi Kusama, Terunobu Fujimori, Sou Fujimoto, Akihisa Hirata, Junya Ishigami, Teppei Fujiwara and Makoto Aida. All pavilions will be open to visitors from July 1 to September 5, 2021.

The pavilions, which will be located a short distance from the Japan National Stadium, are intended to showcase the creative power in the fields of art and architecture of Japan, a nation that is always in step with the times and that has given birth to some of the world’s most respected architects, such as Tadao Ando and Kengo Kuma.

There is still little certain news about the pavilions, all the architects have not yet made their creations official, even if there are some rumors, such as the one regarding Sou Fujimoto who will most likely propose a new interpretation of his “Cloud Pavilion”, installed a few years ago in London.

Great expectations also for the pavilion signed Yayoi Kusama, the 92-year-old artist protagonist in these days of a major exhibition in Germany, is ready to create one of his unique installations for his country.

Junya Ishigami, on the other hand, is thinking of creating a pavilion where visitors will be immersed in an enormous green space, a way of sharing Japanese culture with the rest of the world.
Waiting for everything to be made official, here are some previews or rather some sketches of the artists who will make possible this summer the meeting between architecture and sport.

Roeg Cohen, an intimate and seductive photographer

Roeg Cohen, an intimate and seductive photographer

Federica Cimorelli · 5 days ago · Photography

The photographs of Roeg Cohen are intimate and seductive, talking about life, memory and eternity. His shots tell the most personal aspects of his subjects, they are enigmatic images full of meaning.

Roeg started photography at the age of thirty, but his artistic level is far from immature. He uses photography to express his creativity, it tells as much about himself as about those on the other side of the lens, it communicates independence, courage and boldness.

What Roeg Cohen seems to have with his subjects is an intense and sincere connection. The protagonists of his photographs communicate through body and eyes. They are immortalized in different situations and express opposite and complementary feelings: quiet, peace, silence but also tumult, tension and revolt.

His photographs evoke sensations that are difficult to express in words, which is why we let his images speak for themselves.

The simple and familiar photography by Lauren Bamford

The simple and familiar photography by Lauren Bamford

Federica Cimorelli · 5 days ago · Photography

Lauren Bamford is a freelance photographer based in Melbourne, Australia, specialising in still life, travel and documentary photography – both editorial and commercial. Her shots combine simple, familiar subjects with eye-catching colour palettes and are the result of careful work on atmosphere and compositions.

Her personal style, discreet and humble, mixes instinct and reason. Lauren Bamford in fact, places great importance on natural light, but when it cannot be used for the image, she reconstructs and artificially imitates it as much as possible.
Design objects, food, people, details are the protagonists of her photographs, they are collections of interesting things put together with harmony and balance.

Soft Tissue, an unexpected female sensuality

Soft Tissue, an unexpected female sensuality

Giulia Pacciardi · 5 days ago · Photography

Soft Tissue, a project born from the collaboration between photographer Prue Stent and artist Honey Long, explores female sensuality through the eyes of those who ignore stereotypes.

In fact, always fascinated by the meaning of gender identity, the creative duo wanted to focus the lens on body portions generally not considered sensual.
Skin, hair, veins and defects become the protagonists of shot between the grotesque and the dreamlike.

Everything is focused on the detail that disturbs, on textures and details that almost resemble the beauty of unexplored landscapes.

The aim of the project is to encourage the viewer not to become a slave of a single point of view, rather than to create their own associating different ideas with shapes that have now become descriptive.
