For theory in art we had to make a top three of our favourite foreign artists. My fascination somehow ended up in Africa (might be because of William Kentridge). I had to have one more artist though, so I browsed through this very extensive article with, according to the writer, Africa’s 50 best artists; http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/africa/art-of-africa-the-50-best-african-artists-426441.html
I then stumbled upon the Architect David Adjayes. His work really fascinated me because his work strives to create a sense of dialogue between the building and its space. Also I like his different approach to architecture. He specialises in using simple and austere materials and showing them in their most natural, pared-down form. Especially his artsy pieces that get exhibited in museums appeal to me. Specifically his ‘Pop-up house’. What’s interesting about it that is all made up out of vertical planks which form the walls, but also the ceiling. And because it exists out of these vertical planks the weather just goes right through it.
