The Play

Placing "no particular reason" most of its shares in the nature confessing simply "love time and infinite space of the outdoors," The Play is a variable geometry group of individuals with different personalities and skills, formed in 1967 in the Kansai region of Japan. Still active today, The Play has stopped inventing its own modalities of collective action by creating the possibility that several event happens regardless of its outcome. The persistence over time is thus a separate group in the history of the Japanese and international art, or fully integrated nor completely at the margin. No distinction between art and life, The Play underlines its commitment an attitude and a spirit whose play, sincerity and humor are still essential.

Door, window, table, basket, mirror, rug. These six simple elements—found in many a living room and throughout the glossy pages of any home furnishing catalogue—are the components of a series that Richard Artschwager began creating in 1974. Artschwager repeated these same elements over and over to explore a variety of artistic approaches across media, but particularly in works on paper. In some of these compositions, the six shapes are arranged in a space that utilizes perspective, as if the artist were depicting an actual or imagined interior. In others, the forms are stacked one atop another, or arranged in a ring; occasionally the components are stretched or bloated to form near abstractions.

Museo Casa Mollino

"To understand what a true original Mollino was, you should make an advance reservation to see the apartment that the architect created for himself in the 1960s–not as a place to live, but as a work of art that would express his varied passions. The Museo Casa Mollino is preserved by family members who offer intimate tours by advance reservation. Eclectically furnished rooms look out to the river, but the view is a distraction from the Surrealist ambience of the interior."

Australia's big things

The big things of Australia are a loosely related set of large structures or sculptures. There are estimated to be over 150 such objects around the country, the first being the Big Scotsman in Medindie, Adelaide, which was built in 1963. Most big things began as tourist traps found along major roads between destinations.

The big things have become something of a cult phenomenon, and are sometimes used as an excuse for a road trip, where many or all big things are visited and used as a backdrop to a group photograph. Many of the big things are considered works of folk art and have been heritage-listed.
