Reka moved back to NYC in 2004 and started her career as a photographer. She works and plays in New York City, creating Fashion Editorials, campaign, CD covers, artistic portraits, and erotic photography.

Doris Salcedo - Shibboleth (2008)

“Shibboleth is the first work to intervene directly in the fabric of Turbine Hall. Rather than fill this iconic space with a conventional sculpture or installation, Salcedo has created a subterranean chasm that stretches the length of Turbine Hall.

The concrete walls of the crevice are ruptured by a steel mesh fence, creating a tension between these elements that resist yet depend on one another. By making the floor the principal focus of her project, Salcedo dramatically shifts our perception of the Turbine Hall’s architecture, subtly subverting its claims to monumentality and grandeur. 

Shibboleth asks questions about the interaction of sculpture and space, about architecture and the values it enshrines, and about the shaky ideological foundations on which Western notions of modernity are built.

In particular, Salcedo is addressing a long legacy of racism and colonialism that underlies the modern world. A ‘shibboleth’ is a custom, phrase or use of language that acts as a test of belonging to a particular social group or class. By definition, it is used to exclude those deemed unsuitable to join this group.

‘The history of racism’, Salcedo writes, ‘runs parallel to the history of modernity, and is its untold dark side’. For hundreds of years, Western ideas of progress and prosperity have been underpinned by colonial exploitation and the withdrawal of basic rights from others. Our own time, Salcedo is keen to remind us, remains defined by the existence of a huge socially excluded underclass, in Western as well as post-colonial societies.

In breaking open the floor of the museum, Salcedo is exposing a fracture in modernity itself. Her work encourages us to confront uncomfortable truths about our history and about ourselves with absolute candidness, and without self-deception.”

— I saw this a few years ago at the Tate Modern and I was just like wtf? what is this?? so, tumblr, thanks for explaining it.

Alternative Landscapes by Benoit Paillé

Created out of Benoit’s dislike to traditional landscape photography he took it upon himself to create his on vision of landscape. By installing a cube of light amongst the natural surroundings you’re left questioning the reality of the situation. However, there’s no trickery or deceit here, the cube is genuine and has be suspended in mid air by Benoit himself.
