Installation art: a creative approach

We made a selection of creative installation art by artists such as Mona Hatoum, Isaac Cordal, Jeppe Hein and more.

“Waiting for climate change” (2013) is a project by installation street artist Isaac Cordal: “My style is related to humor and decadence. The modern lifestyle has encouraged large social class differences but I think we still could get together around a campfire and sing happy songs”.

“I prefer to see a city where people painted in walls than a clean city reflecting social control. I think the street art as a movement has given legitimacy to the forms of urban expression, but they had been there long time before the media boom. I don´t know if I am involved in the street art movement but I like doing things on the street … it is open 24 hours a day.” (via Dumbwall)

Mona Hatoum is a video and installation artist of Palestinian origin from Beirut, Lebanon, currently based in London. She often focuses on themes such as power and politics, conflict and contradiction, the body, gender and feminism, cultural differences, the dangers of the domestic world, and was mainly influenced by minimal and conceptual art.

“Cage and Mirror” (2011) is an installation by Jeppe Hein (b. 1974, Copenhagen).

“Rather than passive perception and theoretical reflection, the visitor’s direct and physical experiences are important to me. Thus, one of the most outstanding characteristics of my artworks is their interactivity.” (via)

In his installation, Yasuaki Onishi “uses the simplest materials — plastic sheeting and black hot glue — to create a monumental, mountainous form that appears to float inside of Rice University Art Gallery”.

The “Angles Mirror” (2013) was created by New York-based artist Daniel Rozin, specialized in interactive art.
