Peruvian Monuments, Redux: The photography of Pablo Hare.

I am currently cultivating a healthy obsession with crazy works of public art in Peru. (See my earlier post here.) Which is why I was excited to hear about the work of Peruvian-born photographer Pablo Hare, who has a whole series devoted to some of the most sublime/absurd monuments you have ever laid your eyes on. From top to bottom: a statue of a puma, a tribute to the maca (a type of tuber) in Junín, and a contemporary rendering of the Lord of Sipán, a Moche figure found entombed on the North Coast of Peru (where my family hails from). Hare has captured some absolutely sublime public art ridiculosity. Be sure to click over to view the whole series.

Thanks to Andrés Marroquín Winklemann and Joerg Colberg for the tip.

Sam Horine, Jake Dobkin, Street Stars and the super awesome Luna Park are havin’ a show at Factory Fresh, in Brooklyn, and it kicks off tonight.

Here’s a preview from the exhibit, Quality of Life. Break a leg, guys! 

The show opens tonight at 6pm and is up until October 31st.
