99 Balloons, 1 Brick of Gold, 7000 Thumbtacks

Sikic1

Sikic3

Peruvian artist Iván Sikic addresses the growing income gap through an installation involving 99 balloons, one gilded brick, and 7000 thumbtacks. While events like Occupy Wallstreet brought the fact that 1% of the population controls the majority of the world’s wealth into the mainstream, Sikic aims to keep that conversation going. “It’s My Party and I Do What I Want To” is cheeky but it’s the kind of poking fun that draws attention to the sheer ridiculousness of that reality and what it means for the rest of the 99%.

Instagram Show & Tell: Jennilee Marigomen shares her favourite image by Nguan

“Show & Tell” is an ongoing series where we invite talented people to highlight a work by someone they admire on Instagram. If you would like to be considered for this series, leave a comment below with a link to your own Instagram.

Vancouver-based photographer Jennilee Marigomen selected this image of Petra Collins by Singaporean photographer Nguan.

Jennilee writes: “What excites me about a photo the most is when unrelated things line up and make the entire image beautiful. The pink light in the room to the left, the framed (stunning) photo on the right, her outfit, the expression on her face, the blue wads of tape, and the complimentary colours and unusual composition that ties it all together. It looks like a film still from a few decades ago.”
