WIDEWALLS: ANTON UNAI ART IS AMOR ENEMIGO AT DIE KUNSTAGENTIN

In the landscape of contemporary art, some of the most captivating and original pieces that challenge traditional boundaries have been born out of the simple waste. Transforming abandoned refuse into artistic treasures, Anton Unai art is a dynamic mixture of materials, methods, concepts, and subjects that defies easy classification. Personifying the philosophy represented by Joseph Beuys’ legacy, the artist profoundly believes in the sanctity of spontaneity, the poetry of chaos, and the rejection of traditional academia. His latest body of work will soon be presented at Die Kunstagentin. Titled Amor Enemigo, this solo show investigates the loaded space between lover and enemy – the slippery slope of a knife’s edge so palpable in today’s world.

The Huffington Post about Swoon simulating „What It’s Like To Have A Shared-Death Experience“

Swoon’s project, “Swimming Cities of Switchback Sea,” features seven boats including this steam-powered paddleboat.

Three loud blasts from a steam whistle screamed out as the rain drizzled on the riverbank here. And the fleet of seven eclectic handmade ships slowly moved away.

Only minutes before their launching, on Friday around noon, a group of people, mostly in their 20s and 30s, was still preparing for the voyage down the Hudson River. In between bites of jelly doughnuts, the crew, dressed in hipster hillbilly chic, hustled to clean up pieces of scrap metal and ready the boats. In the middle stood the artist known as Swoon in a bright yellow rain poncho and jeans.
