Transformative work by South African artist Faith47. Her first solo show, Aqua Regalia – Chapter Two, runs from November 19th to December 19th at the Jonathan LeVine Gallery in New York City. “Aqua Regalia” refers to the alchemical process of dissolving gold. Using a variety of materials and techniques (graphite, spray paint, ink, photography, collage, found objects), Faith’s work is concerned with the valuation and transformation of things that have been lost or overlooked.

For his installation, “Tube,” New York-based artist Zilvinas Kempinas stretched strips of VHS tape to create an 80 foot long walkway. More hypnotic images below!
Noon yesterday, Shia LaBeouf started a movie marathon. He is watching every movie he’s ever made in reverse chronological order, over the course of 72 hours at the Angelika Film Center. Visitors are welcome to join him (admission is free). If you don’t live in New York you can watch a live stream of his face watching his own face here on New Hive (I streamed it for a bit and he looked very tired and bored).
This is real. The work is being presented as a performance art piece by his collective, LaBeouf, Rönkkö & Turner, entitled #ALLMYMOVIES.
For the last 15 years, Odyssey Works have specialized in single-audience performances: studying the life of a single individual and then orchestrating the kind of intimate and immersive experiences their audiences-of-one never forget. Many are said to go on to change jobs or commit to loved ones afterward. So who better to write a guide book for creating life-changing moments?

New York-based artist Miya Ando’s solo show, Sora/Ku (Sky/Emptiness), just opened at the Sundaram Tagore Gallery in Hong Kong and it will travel to the Singapore location of the gallery, October 29th.
Ando is known for her subtle works on metal; layered abstract paintings on varied surfaces created using heat, sandpaper, grinders, and acid. It’s obvious these images aren’t going to do these works justice. More images below.
