i have just recently discovered the artist Motohiko Odani while going through a copy of of ‘art now 2’ by taschen. it’s pretty hard to find much stuff online so the images here aren’t the greastest quality but i’ll keep looking because i really want to see more. the pictures above are sculptural installations and are titled ‘erectro’ and ‘erectro clara’. the second one (erectro clara) is much better photographed in the book – slightly from the side and with better lighting. beautiful, ethereal, fairytale and skewed. like a techno-edged angela carter.
it might be just my particular taste but i found a lot more to get my teeth into in this edition (i wasn’t so keen on much of the first one) and i’ll probably profile a few other artists that i found at some point.
