Recently I stumbled upon this great ongoing project called ‘Strange Fruits’ by Sarah Illenberger, a German based Art Director. Sarah nicely redesigns fruits and vegetables into “everyday” objects. She transformed cauliflower into human brains, carrot into lipstick and beetroots into shiny diamonds. After this starter you can find more on her website. Bon appetit!

Figures are made from polymere clay and show clever hints of the art-works that the artists are known for. More examples[...]

The masks, bones and the golden muscles made of steel, plaster, black shoe polish and plastic bags look just amazing and actually pretty scary. Great.
‘Ever-After’ is an exhibition at Jack Shainman Gallery New York, where American fabric sculptor, dancer, and performance artist Nick Cave (not the singer), presents a large selection of his famous ‘Soundsuits’. The ‘Soundsuits’ are amazing wearable fabric sculptures in the scale of the artist, made from all sorts of different materials like twigs, dyed human hair, sisal, plastic buttons,[...]

The objects are made out of everyday stuff, like kitchen-gear, pills, plastic glasses, tape, foam, screws, matches, you name it and it’s there, with every common lousy thing playing an important part in the picture.
