i’m jealous of anne lindberg

Whoa. I am completely in awe of this fantastic installation work by American artist Anne Lindberg. Thousands and thousands of strands of thread, anchored from one wall to another, that seem to glow from within… I said whoa already, right? I wish I could see this work in person… well, if I lived in Omaha Nebraska I could! This work is part of a group show, titled Placemakers, currently on at the Bemis Center for Contemporary Arts from January 13 – March 31, 2012. Please go, and report back! Count how many times you say, whoa. Thank you!

    I have had the pleasure of spending a lot of time with this work at the Bemis Center. Anne has transformed the space (with the first piece above) and it’s so difficult to see the texture and subtlety from the photographs. Stunning work!

    Oh, I’m sure! I’d love to see this in person… the photographs are already stunning, so I can’t even imagine standing in front of it!

    Yes! It’s just such a different experience in person (like most things). People audibly gasp when they see the work!

    Its over 23 miles of thread, and like Christina said, this ‘drawing’ really is amazing. The best is to hear ms lindberg talking about the colour. She has an amazingly intellectual nature to the way she describes it. ps there is a timelapse video on the bemis website, showing the its construction!.
