Sculptures by Jerzy Kedziora aka Jotka defy gravity

Sculptures by Jerzy Kedziora aka Jotka defy gravity

Giulia Guido · 7 months ago · Art

Jerzy Kedziora studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Gdansk and continued his studies in Poznań, experiencing the political and cultural climate of Poland in the 1990s. The artist, also known as Jotka, was inspired by the history of the country, from the transition from a situation of uncertainty to the creation of a balance. 

So he decided to convey this sense of instability to his public through his art, his works. They are sculptures that represent human figures, so far nothing new, but have a particularity that makes them unique and inimitable. 

His characters are suspended in mid-air, like tightrope walkers, in the middle of streets, parks, shopping malls. Any public space can become the stage for Jerzy Kedziora. 

The balance of his sculptures is precarious, looking at them he only waits for the moment in which they crumble to the ground, but never happens. Perennially poised between falling and flying.

Game of Thrones 8: Analysis of the latest episode “The Iron Throne”

Game of Thrones 8: Analysis of the latest episode “The Iron Throne”

Giulia Guido · 7 months ago · Art

It’s over, we knew it would happen, but we weren’t ready. On Sunday night, as always in conjunction with the United States, “The Iron Throne“, the last installment of Game of Thrones, the grand finale, the one we were waiting for and that we would never have liked to have arrived, was aired.

The event series that rewrote the history of the small screen gathered the last applause, and also the inevitable criticism, and closed the curtain, but it seems right to retrace these last 79 minutes conclusive.

The Opening Credits

The destruction that Daenerys inflicted on King’s Landing could not fail to be listed in the initials. We see, in fact, the capital of the Seven Kingdoms and the Red Keep destroyed, moreover, behind the Throne of Swords no longer appears the Lion of the Lannisters that, however, is not replaced by the seal of the Targaryen. 

Daenerys’ speech

The episode opens with a totally destroyed view of the King’s Landing and Daenerys that presents itself to the Unsullied and the Dothraki as Sovereign of the Seven Kingdoms. Here she makes his first speech as Queen that makes even her greatest supporters lose hope. In fact, the Mother of Dragons has no intention of stopping, but she wants to continue to “free” all the other cities.

Her words sound vaguely familiar, both because they were already spoken by herself in season six, and because they contain exactly what Khal Drogo promised her in the first season. 

Love is  the death of duty

If there’s a phrase emblematic of this last episode, it’s “Love is the death of duty”, which Jon tells Tyrion, adding that it was told to him by Aegon Targaryen at the Wall. Here, Aegon not only tells it to Jon when the latter wants to leave the Night’s Watch to go with the Brutes, but he also repeats it to Sam. 

If at the Wall neither Jon nor Sam knew what to say to Aegon, this time Tyrion knows very well what to say to Jon: “Sometimes duty is the death of love”, reversing the situation and succeeding in convincing Jon of what to do. 

Lord of the Rings

Some of the most attentive and passionate fans of this genre have found many similarities with the fantasy movie par excellence, Lord of the Rings. 

First of all, the figures of Gollum and Daenerys and their uncontrollable obsession with two objects have been compared. Inevitably, even the latter have been compared, namely the ring and the throne, both for the effect they have on those who want to take them, both for the fate that awaits them. Both, in the end, are destroyed, fused by the flames.

Another element in common between the HBO series and the film is the destiny designed for the protagonists. 
At the end of the third episode of Lord of the Rings – The Return of the King we might think that Sam and Frodo will live in the County and, instead, the protagonist decides to leave with Gandalf and Bilbo, greeting his friend forever. So also the GoT, we all hoped that the Stark would never be divided and, on the contrary, everyone decides to take a different path. In addition, the construction of the scene in which Jon starts is practically identical to that of Frodo’s departure.

Brienne

The scene in which we see Brienne update the White Book of the Kingsguard, that is, the one in which all the deeds of the Royal Guards are told, is full of small symbols that might go unnoticed, but that is of fundamental importance. The first is the seal on the armor of Brienne depicting a crow, so it turns out to be the symbol of Bran. The second can be seen by reading well what he writes about Jaime Lannister, we discover that the battle in which the King Exterminator clashes for the first time against Daenerys is nicknamed Battle of Goldroad.

In addition, it is no coincidence that a scene is dedicated to updating the heroic deeds of Jaime We remember in fact that the young Lion was denigrated by his nephew Joffrey for the lack of news reported on him. Now we know that every single action of Jaime Lannister will be remembered forever.

Arya

To some, Arya’s choice to go west might seem daring or, even worse, span the air, but it shouldn’t surprise us that much. It was the young Stark, in the sixth season, who confided to the actress of the Braavos theatre company that nobody knew what was west of Westeros and that it would be nice to discover it.

The beginning and the end

Although many fans were disappointed with the finale and some even thought of petitioning and proposing to turn the last season around completely, it cannot be said that David Benioff and D.B. Weiss didn’t think of closing the circle they started in the first season. 

If you remember, the pilot episode of the series started at the Barrier Reef, with three Night’s Watch walking towards the Brutes’ lands. Not by chance, in the last scene of The Iron Throne we see Jon, Ghost, Tormund and the Brutes returning to the lands free as free men, this time without the impending fear of the White Walkers.

Thanks

The Game of Thrones finale was accompanied by the final comments and thanks of the same actors who, through the social networks, shared their emotions and affection for an audience without which this show would never have been possible. 

In summary, it doesn’t matter if we agree or disagree with the ending we saw, if our favorite character had the end he deserved or not, if it is right that Bran sited on the Throne of Swords or if the Stark brothers have split taking different paths. The beauty of the TV series remains and will always be surprised, hoping for something and at the same time hope that it does not happen.

Finding the words to write this post has left me overwhelmed with how much I want to say but how small words feel in comparison to what this show and Dany have meant to me. The mother of dragons chapter has taken up the whole of my adult life. This woman has taken up the whole of my heart. I’ve sweated in the blaze of dragon fire, shed many tears at those who left our family early, and wrung my brain dry trying to do Khaleesi and the masterful words, actions (and names) I was given, justice. Game of Thrones has shaped me as a woman, as an actor and as a human being. I just wish my darling dad was here now to see how far we’ve flown. But to you, dear kind magical fans, I owe you so much thanks, for your steady gaze at what we’ve made and what I’ve done with a character that was already in the hearts of many before I slipped on the platinum wig of dreams. Without you there is no us. And now our watch has ended. @gameofthrones @hbo #love #motherofdragonsoverandout

1. First Day. 2. Last Day. GoT was like the craziest school trip ever. A 6 year Adventure Weekend. Grey Worm. You went from a robot to a real boy. I’m proud of you. I’ll miss you bud. Thank you to everybody that cared about him and rooted for him. He was really scared at first, but you made him feel loved. He appreciates it. I asked him. Huge shout out to the Targs team: Nats, Emilia, Conleth, Peter, Iain, Ian, Michiel, Reece, Ed, Kit, Liam. Thank you for making the days so fun. Here’s to every single department behind the scenes that worked to the bone to make this show. They worked tirelessly everyday to make this thing, and they never get shout outs and they know that but they do it anyway. Here’s to you, you ragtag bunch of talented clever rascals. I love ya’ll. Thank you. Game of Thrones ENDS tonight on @hbo AT 9pm and @skyatlanticuk at 2am. I hope you enjoy it.

So tonight we have our very last episode. It’s the final step of a long and wonderful journey. A journey that, for me, started at 10am on Monday 19th of July 2010. I know this because recently I found my rehearsal and prep schedule for season 1, week 1. This was given to me when I landed in Belfast for the first time, weeks before we even started shooting. Listed here is the rehearsal where I first met Kit, and the first time I wore the costume that’s seen me through 8 seasons. I’m glad I kept this. I met so many people that week who have come to mean so much to me. Back then we couldn’t have known the journey we’d go on together. I wouldn’t swap that experience, or those people, for the world. Enjoy the episode and thanks for everything. ❤️❤️❤️ @gameofthrones @hbo #GOT 👋

Billy is the protagonist of the new trailer for Stranger Things 3

Billy is the protagonist of the new trailer for Stranger Things 3

Giulia Guido · 7 months ago · Art

In Hawkins, it’s already time for pool parties, or at least it’s what it looks like watching the new Stranger Things 3 trailer released by Netflix a few hours ago.

The protagonist of this promo video is Billy, Max’s brother, who with his statuesque physique and his charm seems to be buying hearts, including that of Nancy’s mother and Mike, Mrs. Wheeler. In addition, the trailer has been accompanied by new official posters that you can find in our gallery.

Although everything seems to run smoothly, we know that in the small town of Indiana anything can happen and there is no certainty, but for the moment let’s enjoy a little more ‘lightheartedness.

Layered, multicoloured s​tree​t art by Gina Kiel

Layered, multicoloured s​tree​t art by Gina Kiel

Claudia Fuggetti · 7 months ago · Art

The monochromatic figures created by the New Zealand artist Gina Kiel are the main protagonists of her murals. With a childhood full of music, nature, Disney films and hours of drawing, Gina became an illustrator after working in an animation company, where she discovered her love for drawing.

Her imagination is influenced by pop aesthetics and by the 1970s, which tended to be psychedelic, as can be easily deduced from her profile Instagram.

The designs are made against a bright blue background, which blends the colours of New Zealand’s sunny skies with the surrounding sea. The realism of the figures is played down by the trails composed of bright colors, which give great materiality to the various subjects.

Gina knows how to create feminine images, but at the same time of impact, that exude sensuality and explore the human experience through the concepts of life, death, spirituality and pop culture.

Here is the final trailer for Toy Story 4!

Here is the final trailer for Toy Story 4!

Giulia Guido · 7 months ago · Art

Whether it’s Andy or Bonnie, Woody, and his friends have always remained loyal to their young owner, but from the new Toy Story 4 trailer, it seems that things are about to change.

The life of the most famous toys on the big screen will be turned upside down by the arrival of a new toy “Forky“, a fork turned into a toy that doesn’t want to accept its new nature, but also by a journey that Bonnie and her family decide to make. 

This experience will put a strain on the group of little friends who will have to find Forky, just escaped, and especially for Woody who, in addition to finding Bo Peep you know you have to deal with a much bigger world than when he didn’t think. 

Toy Story 4 will be released in America on June 21 and in Italian theatres on June 26, meanwhile, watch the trailer below!
