Summer Solstice, it’s Summertime for the artist Lizzie Gill

Claudia Fuggetti · 6 months ago · Art

Brooklyn mixed media artist Lizzie Gill has created a series of works inspired by the Summer season, Summer Solstice. Her artistic practice explores the themes of American retro in a contemporary context and is based on typical evocative scenes; very often the artist uses vintage photographs that she likes to rework at will.

“The works open up new perspectives that show not only where we are, but also where we will be”.

The images become fragments of the Ego, memories of the past that help us to understand the present and, perhaps, also the future. Summer is the main theme of the various plates, which appear fresh, carefree and poetic: the narration of these miniatures is all implied, in such a way as to allow the viewer to recreate personal memories.

Lizzie has also been defined as an artist with a conceptually post-feminist approach: she explores themes such as the modern approach to romanticism and how it evolved through technology, in the form of online courtship.

Discover Summer Solstice on Lizzie’s website and in our gallery.

Meet Mulieris Magazine

Meet Mulieris Magazine

Collater.al Contributors · 6 months ago · Art

Mulieris Magazine is an all-female project created by Greta Langianni, Sara Lorusso e Alice Arcangeli, two photographers and one illustrator based in Bologna. The magazine tackles every month a different theme: the first issue was about female masturbation and the second one about motherhood. Now, for this third edition that will be published on paper and the theme will be “forms”.

Greta, Sara and Alice asked to female artists to present their projects (photography, performance, installation, video, sculpture, illustration, painting etc.) focused on this theme.Yes, because Mulieris Magazine is a collective project, created by women who want to collaborate with them. They say:

Our intent is to create a platform that allows artists from all over the world to promote their art, create a network that unites these artists and allows them to continue research in every discipline. Female artists and anyone who recognizes themselves as creatives”.

Why an all-female project?

“The idea was born from a feeling of inequality that exists between women and men also in the world of art, where often the woman is disadvantaged, diminished and exploited. This editorial project becomes a means for us to help the artists and make readers aware of the condition of women and the vision of women of various themes.”

LEGO rebuild the iconic Porsche 911 Turbo 3.0 1974

LEGO rebuild the iconic Porsche 911 Turbo 3.0 1974

Collater.al Contributors · 6 months ago · Art

Vintage cars, you know, are a precious asset but even more difficult to find, for this reason, LEGO has given the opportunity to fans to have their Porsche 911 Turbo 3.0 of 1974 in miniature. It will be made of 180 bricks and you can recreate this icon of the races of the 70s, a must-have collection for the die-hard fans of the two-seater.

The 1974 LEGO 911 is incredibly full of detail and true to the original, with the Porsche logo, realistic rubber wheels, the iconic whale-tailed aileron – “Whale-Tail” – on the back, colored in a glittering white. The model has a removable windscreen that allows you to insert in the driver’s cabin a classic Porsche 911 lego man with his own black racing hatchet. All this is accompanied by three orange cones.

The entire car is 2.5 cm high, 12.7 cm long and 5.1 cm wide – the right size and portable so you can display it wherever you want. The car will also make its digital debut in the new Forza Horizon 4: LEGO Speed Champions on Xbox One and Windows 10 PC this summer. The Porsche 911 Turbo 3.0 from LEGO 1974 Porsche 911 Turbo 3.0 will be available in its stores on 1st of August.

Constellation, the Festival that combines art and technology

Constellation, the Festival that combines art and technology

Collater.al Contributors · 6 months ago · Art

Constellations is the digital arts festival that takes place in the city of Metz from 20 June to 7 September, for three years now.

The installations and projects of the artists involved in it are able to build parallel dimensions which is possible to visit  thanks to three main courses offered to the public: Digital Stones, Street Art and Art and Gardens.

Let’s starting from the first.

The Pierres Numériques course invites the public to make a nocturnal journey to discover the architectural heritage of the city, including installations and projections that combine art and technology.

The artist Vincent Masson stands out the mighty Saint-Etienne cathedral with a mapping named Morphosis that defines the polymorphic character of the building, all this accompanied by a musical and animated narration to tell the most important events that marked the history of the city.

With the Vivam Memoriam project by Romain Tardy we arrive at the heart of the event, a sound and light show that takes place in New Temple, one of the most important Protestant buildings of neo-Romanic architecture, which celebrates the end of the digital age.

Being crossed by the Moselle canal, for the city of Meltz water is a primary and important source, so that the artist Joanie Lemercier has chosen to present his work Constellations on a water drops screen, which projections of lights create three-dimensional images that carry us through the rhythm of music between planets and stars.

In the cloister, which host the House of the Region, usually closed to the public, Olivier Ratsi presents Frame Perspective. It covers the four corridors of the construction of red rectangular neon lights that light up one after the other to offer a staging out of time.

The Basilica of San Vincenzo has been a desacralized monument since 2012, and the artist Guillaume Marmin with the agency TETRO have chosen to present their work in “1.3 seconds”. In addiction to being the title of the project, it is also the length of time that light takes to travel between the Earth and the Moon.

Each of these installations, and many others will carry you to a space never seen before.

With 950,000 visitors for the second edition, Constellations has been recognized as the summer art festival to discover absolutely.
