BSA Special Feature: Steven Siegel, Like a Buoy, Like a Barrel
We’ve seen public works made with recycled materials in the street art scene for a few years – Bordalo II and Icy & Sot come to mind. American environmental artist Steven Siegel has been pulling apart and reassembling in public space for forty years or so, amassing a body of work that examines and reveals the geologic sedimentation of earth, bodies, memory, emotion.
A recent work, Like a Buoy, Like a Barrel in Providence, Rhode Island presents our collective waste in a container, front and center for all to look into, marvel at, perhaps be dismayed by.
“Piling a bunch of, for lack of a better word, ‘trash,’ is not going to move anybody. Whereas if you can articulate it into a form that is beautiful and surprising, they’re going to say ‘that’s beautiful and surprising. What does it mean?”
Mural Intervention by Ana Barriga in Nau Bostik
On the occasion of the closing of the TÀPIA exhibition, B.murals invited Ana Barriga to paint on the walls of Espai 30 La Sagrera, inspired by her tireless searches for inspiration in markets such as “El Rastro” in Madrid. Using a found item she enlarges it and takes comfort in the simple depiction of mutual affinity.
