Party Time Folks!
Came across this installation by Paola Pivi, called ‘it’s a cocktail party’ (watch video via the link). The installation comprises nine objects made of polished steel, each consisting of 16-feet-tall pipe, a pump, and a basin. In each installation, a fluid, either red wine, almond syrup, glycerin, black ink, olive oil, espresso, water, facial tonic or woodruff syrup, is circulating continuously dropping in one massive jet from the 5 inches pipes opening into the basin.
While I’m not a fan of installation art, this one really caught my eye. I’m really trying to understand the ‘why’ and ‘what do you achieve out of it’ of installation art. Itss quite intriguing that an artist spend so much time and substance on installations that are so temporary. How does it feel when it has got to be dismantled? I’m looking for answers…..
