Saturday night in Sharjah
I went to Sharjah last night after a quick tour of QUOZ. I went to see the live performance of cyclo. by Ryoji Ikeda and Carsten Nicolai and to see Spectra by Ryoji Ikeda on Flag Island, it was the last night of the installation.
I even managed to have a quick look of the current exhibitions in the SAF Art Spaces, Ilya and Emilia Kabakov: A Collective Memory, I Look To You And I See Nothing and Vantage Point Sharjah. I will be going back again to spend more time at these exhibitions, but based on first impressions, I was quite impressed.
Here are a couple of Vine clips from the cyclo. performance:
Here's a photo and a Vine clip of Spectra. It's quite an installation. The beaming lights into the sky could be seen from across the city. Had to be there in person to experience it.
