George Steinmetz, Salt Mines of Lake Asele, Ethiopia 2011

Tigrean and Afari men prying slabs of salt out of the dry section of Lake Assale. The salt will be carried by camel and donkey up the East African rift to Tigre province where it will be sold for human and animal consumption. The young men make an average of 150 – 200 Ethiopian Birr ( 1 6.6 Birr = $1.00 ) per day in a traditional labor and trade that has been ongoing for centuries. The lake is some 150m. below sea level. Camels depart with 20 slabs of salt each weighing approximately 7kg. for a total load of approx. 300 lbs.

Louise Zhang

Louise Zhang is a Chinese Australian artist based in Sydney, Australia.

She creates objects that are designed to allure and repel, depending on your proclivities, her paintings and sculptures could have either or both effects simultaneously.

Zhang’s paintings and painted sculptures are blob-like in form, slippery in texture and lurid in colour.

Video Interview with Louise Zhang

Their brightness and playfulness are striking and their ambivalent forms can be unnerving, in the same way that the wobble of jelly evokes terror in some.

In one sense Zhang’s works are entirely abstract they do not represent forms from the real world.

They are, however, representational in that their infinite mutability reflects that of the blob.

If ‘ the blob ’ can be defined as a real object, then Zhang’s works are not so abstract after all.
