Radisson BLU Saga Hotel, Reykjavik exhibits Global Raft-prints and
OneLog®-objects of German sculptor Rappaport
The artist Thomas Rappaport is travelling right through Iceland these months, preparing his European landart-project Global Raft, which takes place in summer 2016.
Reykjavik, 31st July, 2015. During his stay in August and September 2014, he produced a large number of landscape-photos from which he chose ten to get them printed on weatherproof truck tarps sized 100 x 70 cm (see attached PDF-file). Another five are printed as art-reliefs on very thin and fragile driftwood-boards (made from sibirian tree-trunks found on Islandic shores) sized 80 to 160 cm x 130 cm.
Radisson blu exhibits also two of Rappaport’s OneLog®-objects, a bench and a bookshelf, which have been produced from driftwood in Iceland this year. OneLog® is the registered trade-mark for Rappaport’s art-furniture.
The Global Raft-Project: An archaic sphere-raft is on a journey from Stuttgart down the Neckar and Rhine through Rotterdam to Island. Upon arrival it will transform into ice. The land-art-project by the artist Rappaport draws from rafting traditions, plays with different possible appearances of water and shows surprising global coherences. www.global-raft.org
