When Pittsburgh industrialist Andrew Carnegie founded Carnegie Institute (current Carnegie-Mellon University) in 1895, one of his ambitions was to create a museum of modern art. The series of contemporary art exhibitions he established the following year became the linchpin of that scheme. Through the exhibitions, Carnegie sought to educate and inspire audiences, promote international understanding of art, attract the art world to Pittsburgh, and above all, to build a collection through the purchase of the Old Masters of Tomorrow who would be represented in the exhibitions. Today, the Carnegie International is the oldest exhibition of international contemporary art in North America, and the second oldest in the world.
The 2013 Carnegie International brings together 35 artists from 19 countries, including a series of large-scale commissions throughout the museum and beyond. Among these artists is Sarah Lucas, who lives and works in London, England. This is her work entitled Loungers #3. It is made of tights, fluff, plastic bucket and plastic lounger. It is from the collection of Jeanne Greenberg Rohatyn and Nicholas Rohatyn. My post-processing of this photo introduced my own interpretation: I desaturated all but the plastic bucket.
Pittsburgh sanayicisi Andrew Carnegie 1895 yılında Carnegie Enstitüsünü (bugünkü Carnegie-Mellon Üniversitesi) kurduğunda, emellerinden biri modern bir sanat müzesi oluşturmaktı. Ertesi yıl kurulan çağdaş sanat sergileri dizisi bu programın temel taşı oldu. Sergi sayesinde, Carnegie izleyicileri eğitmek ve onlara ilham vermek, sanatın uluslararası anlayışını teşvik etmek, Pittsburghe sanat dünyasını çekmek, ve her şeyden önce, sergilerde temsil edilecek "Yarının Eski Ustalar"ını satın alma yoluyla bir koleksiyon oluşturmak için çalıştı. Bugün Carnegie Uluslararası, uluslararası çağdaş sanatın Kuzey Amerika'da en eski ve dünyada ikinci en eski sergisidir.
2013 Carnegie Uluslararası müze boyunca ve ötesinde bir dizi büyük ölçekli komisyonlar dahil 19 ülkeden 35 sanatçıyı bir araya getiriyor. Bu sanatçılar arasında Londra, İngiltere'de yaşayan ve çalışan Sarah Lucas da bulunuyor. Bu onun Loungers #3 (Uzananlar #3) başlıklı eseri. Bu tayt, kabartmalık, plastik kova ve plastik şezlongdan yapılmıştır. Jeanne Greenberg Rohatyn ve Nicholas Rohatyn koleksiyonundandır. Bu fotoğrafın işlemi kendi yorumumu tanıttı: Plastik kova hariç herşeyi desatüre ettim.

Well, this is very unique art, made from a plastic chair, tights and a bucket.
Not my cup of tea, but it is striking, and make's you think and laugh, so if that is the intension of the Artist, good luck to her.
Your management is good and makes it very colourful, yet minimalist.
An odd one.

I wonder what these modern artist's try to convey, I am fond of traditional art where I don't have to decipher anything. That has nothing to do with your nice photo though. Like the partial desaturation done over here. very fit for the subject. The shadow on the walls and the floor is also captured very well. Unique indeed, thanks for sharing.

Would it be too obvious to state that art is subjective? :) I don't get most of it, maybe I'm just not cultured enough I suppose... mainly because of my own interpretation of what's hanging at the bottom of this piece!?
I like what you've done with it however, putting your own spin on the visual with the color isolation. Good positioning as well, accounting for and including the shadow as a secondary feature. Very interesting. Enjoy the weekend. Take it easy.

I'm not a person who likes modern arts, but I definitely like this photo. Rather simple but excellent. You have not only very well captured the artwork exhibit itself but also its shades on the wall and floor. The framing in portrait format is superb.
Very well done.
