Bring me home — by Yoshimasa Yamada @lokalhelsinki

Opening to the public on August 30, Amos Rex @amoskonst in Helsinki has the ambition of positioning itself as a new cultural landmark that is open and welcoming. Built under the ground of the iconic 1930s modernist building Lasipalatsi, the museum is the new home to the former Amos Anderson Art Museum. Instead of creating a new building that destroys the original look of the area, the museum is built underground and these structures, which are windows that allow daylight into the space, are erected in what was originally a bus station, turning it into a public space for people to enjoy @jkmmarchitects @myhelsinki @ourfinland

“Households of the South 江南人家” by Wu Guanzhong 吳冠中 @nationalgallerysingapore. The Singaporean institution will be presenting exhibition “Wu Guanzhong: Expressions of Pen & Palette” to commemorate the centennial year of artist‘s birth in 1919. Really liked this 1996 painting when I saw it last year at the museum. Not sure if it will be featured in the new show, which opens on August 31.
Initially created as a sound installation in Atacama desert in Chile, Christian Boltanski’s “Animitas” (2014) features some 800 Japanese bells attached to long stems laid out on the ground, forming a pattern that corresponds to the natal birth chart of the artist 💫 @fondationlv. A version of this was created in Teshima Island in Japan in 2016, and it was mesmerising.
