#Repost @aseriesofrooms ・・・ Fra Angelico, The mocking of Christ, 1441 . During the 1440s, Fra Angelico painted a series of frescos on the walls of the cells of San Marco in Florence, portraying religious visions. The paintings, meant to be observed only by the monks inhabiting the space and not by the general public, offer a more ascetic point of view than that normally shown in works on public display, and the architecture surrounding the characters is similar to the construction of the convent, establishing a relationship of proximity between the viewer and the scene depicted. . In the case of this painting, Christ sits blindfolded on a throne in an austere room. The figures that traditionally attack or mock him are reduced to dismembered parts of bodies floating around the space, symbols to be understood only by those with knowledge of the larger narrative. . The image conveys a dreamy atmosphere that connects with certain elements of the surrealist avant-garde that took place five centuries later. .

Damián Ortega, Cosmogonía Doméstica, 2014 . Damián Ortega first came to the international spotlight with Cosmic Thing (2002), a work in which he disassembled a Volkswagen Beetle and made all of its components, from the small mechanisms to its external bodywork pieces, hang from invisible threads and float in the space. Ever since, his work has been interested in the transformation and re-contextualization of objects we take for granted, with the erection of large-scale works that hide their complex construction and, like a magic trick, appear deceitfully simple at first sight. . In “Cosmogonía Doméstica”, his made to measure work for the urban space in front of the Jumex Foundation in his hometown of Ciudad de Mexico, he turned everyday objects that he owned (chairs, a table, kitchenware) into a constellation of floating elements in a never-ending dance. Like planets, each element is attached to one of five circular platforms and rotates both on itself and around a table that is set on the centre of the piece. The five platforms are clad in the same stone masonry as that of the public square, and so the urban space integrates the art piece in a subtle but surreal way. . Ortega has defined the ideas behind this work as a schizophrenic carousel or a homemade solar system, but when building it, he realized the structure it most resembled was that of a clock. The objects, exposed to the weather conditions, degrade in front of the eyes of people passing by and bring the human scale of domesticity to the urban space of one of the largest cities in the world. .

David Hockney, Self-Portrait with Blue Guitar / Model with Unfinished Self-Portrait, 1977 . Hockney's prolific career is full of meta references of himself and others. This series of paintings and photographs is no exception. In "Self-Portrait with Blue Guitar", he portrays himself while drawing a blue guitar, in reference to the series of etchings "The Blue Guitar" he was doing at that moment , inspired by Wallace Stevens' poem "Man with the Blue Guitar" (Stevens was himself inspired by Picasso), while a sculpture of the head of Dora Maar (Picasso's lover) floats nearby. . In "Model with Unfinished Self-Portrait", a work-in-progress of "Man with the Blue Guitar" serves as the background of the scene depicting a model sleeping in a blue robe (the same shade as the painting's curtain) and offers an experimental instance of the "double portraits" in which he was also working at the time. From the Tate retrospective catalog: . ”Near life-sized, these carefully staged compositions combine informal poses and settings with the grandeur and formality of traditional portraiture. Almost all these works are painted in acrylic, which dries quickly and cannot be scraped off the canvas, thus demanding a greater degree of planning and meticulous application. This process, with its greater capacity for scrutiny and observation, meant that Hockney could work from photographic studies to sketch out overall compositions but he chose to paint his figures from life.” .

Ettore Sottsass with Eulàlia Grau, Do you want to sit in the sun... Or do you want to sit in the shade? (part of the series Metaphors), 1973 . During the early 1970s, Sottsass went through ‘’a period of emptiness and introvert meditation. Of purification and release from everything that constituted the laws, customs and vocabulary of rationalist culture.’’ His relationship with Catalan artist Eulàlia Grau had him leading a nomadic life between his home and studio base in Milano and extended journeys around Spain. In deep contact with the landscape and its nature, they created a series of small, ephemeral constructions of a fragile appearance and built with poor, rather precarious materials. . ‘’I felt a deep necessity to visit deserted places, mountains; to re-establish a physical relationship with the cosmos, which is the only real environment, precisely because it can’t be measured, foreseen, controlled or known… it seemed to me that if anything was to be regained we would have to begin by regaining microscopic gestures and elementary actions, the sense of one’s own position…’’ . The photographs of the interventions, taken by Sottsass himself, reveal a very particular point of view, in equal parts poetry and irony, both playful and grounded. They are an experimental reflection on the nomadic lifestyle and a reacquaintance with the essence of architecture: its language and its relation to the human body. .

Menno Aden, Room Portraits, 2006-2009 . “For me as an artist, watching from a higher position on a small space is interesting because I can see someone’s ‘compressed personality’ (…) I started photographing rooms of friends in Berlin, to make portraits of them without actually seeing them.” . Menno Aden’s series portrays interior spaces seen from above, as if the ceiling had been removed. Rather than using a wide angle to photograph the whole space all at once, Aden has created an intricate process in which he “scans” the whole space by meticulously photographing the room by parts, following a grid, and later stitching the stills together. . With their precise geometry, the resulting images have an unreal, almost rendered aesthetic; but at the same time they have the ability of precisely capturing a moment in time, one that is defined by the particular (and temporary) way in which the inhabitant’s things are arranged. .

Christian Tilemann-Petersen, Interior at Clausholm, 1909 . In his paintings of Danish Baroque palaces, Christian Tilemann-Petersen shifts the attention from the grandiosity of the spaces to the relationship between rooms connected by an open door, or between the scattered pieces of furniture and art. . The paintings’ focused point of view provides an intimate atmosphere, even if the spaces look uninhabited (yet not abandoned). Every object seems carefully displayed, not a thing out of place, following a pre-planned composition that is intended for visitors, but not for everyday life. . More images in aseriesofrooms.com .

Giovanni Battista Piranesi, Frammenti di marmo della Pianta di Roma antica, 1756 . The Forma Urbis Romae or Severan Marble Plan was a large map of the city of Rome carved on marble. In a scale of approximately 1:240, it measured 18m wide by 13m high and was divided into 150 marble slabs that were mounted on an interior wall of the Templum Pacis at around 203-211 A.D. . With all of its walls and columns precisely incised on the stone, the plan represents mass and void, and the city is understood as a sum of interconnected spaces: from public to private, interior or exterior, big or small… All of them represented in the same way, no difference is made between the domestic room and the public temple. . The plan is believed to have collapsed after the metal clamps that fixed it to the wall were stolen, or just dismounted and converted into construction material for new buildings. The first recovered pieces were found in 1562 and were kept in the hands of private collectors until 1741, when the city of Rome acquired them. Many scholars have studied the fragments, in the effort of learning about the original map and the city it represented. Piranesi drew them in a series of engravings from 1756 included in the first volume of Antichità Romane. . More images and info in the entry about Forma Urbis Romae in aseriesofrooms.com .

Edward Hopper, Morning Sun, 1952 / Room by the Sea, 1951 . (After some technical issues a few days ago that mysteriously self-resolved, the full entry on Hopper's paintings is now up in aseriesofrooms.com) . Hopper’s paintings have the ability of precisely capturing instants of everyday life, sublimating the ordinary and the quietness. The women and men that populate his works often seem absorbed in their own thoughts and an atmosphere of melancholia surrounds them. . The architecture of the spaces represented establishes a clear separation between inside and outside: two different worlds visually united by the ever-present element of the window. From the outside in, the viewer voyeuristically observes the intimate lives of strangers. From the inside out, windows frame the surrounding landscape as a painting on the wall, but one in constant transformation. During the day, windows allow the sunlight in, creating abstract compositions on the walls and floor. At night, the interior light escapes the contained stage of domestic life and spreads into the surrounding darkness. .

Franz Erhard Walther, Vier Körpergewichte (Four Body Weights), 1968 . “Franz Erhard Walther is internationally recognized for his five-decade-long investigation into the spatial, sensorial, and temporal dimensions of forms-preoccupations he shares with such contemporaries as Donald Judd, Walter de Maria, Richard Serra, and Blinky Palermo. Since his first experiments during the early 1960s, Walther’s work has occupied a unique position in the development of post-World War II avant-garde practice, as he radically abandoned conventional modes of painting and sculpture in order to examine the process of art rather than its product. Walther’s distinctive approach to thinking through the problems visual artists traditionally face –those of form, materials, space, and subject- led him to conceiving objects and images that challenged the beholder to act. In acknowledging the impact of viewers’ presence and actions in real time and space, Walther attempts to suspend the sense of isolation and self-absorption that is often associated with viewing art.” .

Nathalie du Pasquier, Intérieur avec peintures murals, 1984 . Nathalie du Pasquier’s career first came defined by her belonging to the Memphis Group founded by Ettore Sottsass in the early 1980s, and which became one of the major driving forces of post-modernism. Her colourist axonometries showed bold interiors clad with her designs of furnishings and textiles. . As interest in the radical approach of domesticity proposed by the Memphis Group faded in favour of the sleek minimalism that would come to define the late 80s and the 90s, du Pasquier also turned her interest from commercial design into painting and art. .

John Loengard, Ad Reinhardt in his studio, New York, NY, 1966 • For the last decade of his life, abstract artist Ad Reinhardt painted exclusively square paintings in various shades of black that revealed their full tonal complexity only on a closer look. He described this works as "a pure, abstract, non-objective, timeless, spaceless, changeless, relationless, disinterested painting—an object that is self-conscious (no unconsciousness), ideal, transcendent, aware of no thing but art." • In 1966, photographer John Loengard visited his studio, the walls covered with paintings on top of more paintings, and captured the artist at work. • @aseriesofrooms —— „ (...) black surfaces and attempted to remove hints of his own creative gestures. The final products, five-by-five-foot canvases, leave the viewer gazing into a dark void while (Reinhardt hoped) questioning their own existence.” - @alinacohen @artsy #aseriesofrooms #adreinhardt #painting #documentingspace #johnleongard #abstract #nonobjective #abstractart #nonobjectiveart #modernart #abstractexpressionism #monochromatism

The ateliers of Frédéric Bazille . French painter Frédéric Bazille’s career was cut short when he died in the battlefield of the Franco-Prussian War in 1870, at the age of 28. Before that, in the 1860s, he was part of the group of artists developing a style of their own that would come to be known as impressionism, and during that time he shared studios with some of them. . He worked side by side with Claude Monet in the Atelier de la rue de Furstenberg (first image, 1865), shared the space in the Atelier de la Rue Visconti (second image, 1867) with Pierre-Auguste Renoir. . The last painting shows a lively scene in his studio in rue de La Condamine (1870). Bazille wrote to his father about this painting that “Manet painted me in”, alluding to the fact that the tall figure in the centre of the painting appears to have a thicker brushstroke. Hanging on the walls there are paintings by his colleagues, which had been rejected by the Academy for the annual Parisian Salon. .

Elia and Zoe Zenghelis, Hotel Sphinx in New York, 1975 . “I started thinking that the so called ‘existenz minimum’ should be that of a luxury hotel. I extended that to the idea that a luxury hotel offers the possibility of an alternative way of living. I thought that life in a mix of apartments and houses, in a concentrated and congested urban condition, can be very exciting, especially if an efficiently managed luxury hotel supports that life.” . Excerpt from “A Coversation with Elia Zenghelis”, by Cynthia Davidson for Log No. 30 (Winter 2014) . “Elia and Zoe Zenghelis designed the Hotel Sphinx for Times Square, at the intersection of Broadway and Seventh Avenue, that was included in Rem Koolhaas’ book “Delirious New York”. It proposed and urban hotel as a model for mass housing. Each physical part of the hotel as sphinx accommodates different programmatic functions: the legs contain escalators ascending to theaters, auditoriums, and ballrooms; the two towers of the tail contain studio apartments; the neck contains social clubs; the head is dedicated to relaxation and sports; and the spine houses hotel rooms, apartments, and villas with terraced gardens. Manhattan was intended to function as an extended lobby providing all possible amenities, and, likewise, the ground floor and mezzanine were designed to draw in the city an to take on the character of the Times Square area, a notoriously seedy neighbourhood in the 1970s.” .

Anne Holtrop, Plan of the Felt Pavilion, 2012-2013 . The exhibition space for furniture brand Pastoe in Rotterdam’s Kunsthal explores with unexpected results the movement and gravity of felt. Its whitish tone and the thinness of the material have a porcelain effect of fragile appearance, which contrasts with the inherent warmth of the fabric. . Maaike Lauwaert wrote this for 2G 73: “The walls of the pavilion are of 1.5 cm thick felt in a pale grey, almost white colour. They hang from the ceiling from steel cables, which makes their flexibility all the more visible. The felt creates impossible convolutions and corners that a harder material would be unable to achieve.” .

Rudolf Steiner, Goetheanum, 1925-1928 . Austrian philosopher, scientist, educator and architect Rudolf Steiner projected the Goetheanum building in the city of Dornach as the headquarters for the Anthroposophical Society, a movement or philosophy of life he had greatly contributed to create. Anthroposophy means “wisdom of the human being” and proposes the “existence of an objective, intellectually comprehensible spiritual world, accessible to human experience through inner development”. Waldorf education, biodynamic agriculture, anthroposophical medicine or ethical banking were all born from the ideas in the philosophy developed by Steiner, who also contributed to an idea of architecture that was liberated from traditional constraints, expressive, a stage for life that could allow for sensory experiences and perceptions to become apparent. . The first Goetheanum was built in wood and was destroyed by arson. Steiner then proposed a new building made of concrete, of which the room shown in this image is still part of. . #aseriesofrooms #documentingspace #domesticity #rudolfsteiner #goetheanum #architecture #anthroposophy #architecturephotography #architecturalphotography #roomoftheday

In a brief note on the catalogue of the exhibition ‘Charles Sheeler: paintings, drawings, photographs” shown in MoMA in 1939, he wrote about the two means of representation: “Pictures realistically conceived might have an underlying abstract structure. (…) My interest in photography, paralleling that in painting, has been based on admiration for its possibility of accounting for the visual world with an exactitude not equalled by any other medium. The difference is the manner of arrival at their destination –the painting being the result of a composite image and the photograph being the result of a single image– prevents these media from being competitive" .

Plans of the home inhabited by Symeon the Stylite . Saint Simeon Stylites chose a life of austerity and humility. Ironically, he rose to prominence precisely because of his extreme way of life, in which he gradually increased the ascetism of his domestic setting. . His obsession with Christianity had him entering a monastery before he was 16. His radical practice of austerity was deemed too extreme for the communal life, and so he was asked to leave. He then spent one year and a half on a hut, before establishing his home inside a large excavated cone rock. . He would later move onto a small platform on top of a pillar, his last and most radical room, but the rock he once inhabited still stands today in what is now known as the Pasabag valley in Cappadocia, Turkey. .

Njideka Akunyili Crosby, 2010s . Nigerian-born, American-resident artist Njideka Akunyili Crosby aims to avoid the sensationalised topics and clichés frequently attributed to the African experience in the western mind (misery, illness, war, corruption…) and instead chooses to put her focus on the normal life. . With a technique that engages on the European figurative tradition and transforms it with a combination of old photographs (both personal and collected from the media), patterns and acrylic painting, she creates domestic scenes of family and friends that provide an inside view into the intimacy of the every day. On a closer look, the works reveal layers of information hidden in plain view, with the images and fabrics and texts embedded in the images all explaining stories and traditions of their own. .

Chilean architects Mauricio Pezo and Sofia von Ellrichshausen’s series of paintings “Exterior” presents details of spaces depicted in ambiguous shapes of colour. The resulting images work both as abstract compositions and figurative representations of nondescript architectures. . “We are not interested in describing a particular moment of the day, they are not operating with that precision. They evoke a certain mood, a certain character and atmosphere, which is closer to the memory of a place, to our own imagination of a memorable place. In fact, the very size of the painting introduces a distortion of reality because your body, the position of your eyes, defines a perspective that is always changing.” .

In a scale of approximately 1:240, it measured 18m wide by 13m high and was divided into 150 marble slabs that were mounted on an interior wall of the Templum Pacis at around 203-211 A.D. . With all of its walls and columns precisely incised on the stone, the plan represents mass and void, and the city is understood as a sum of interconnected spaces: from public to private, interior or exterior, big or small… All of them represented in the same way, no difference is made between the domestic room and the public temple. . The plan is believed to have collapsed after the metal clamps that fixed it to the wall were stolen, or just dismounted and converted into construction material for new buildings. . Even if the original purpose of Forma Urbis Romae is not yet understood, as it is not clear if it had a functional use or it was just decorative, the found fragments represent a source of knowledge on the architecture of the Rome of the antiquity, showing the organization of the city and its buildings, from the larger public structures to the common housing. .

David Hockney, ‘George Lawson and Wayne Sleep’, 1972-75 . During the late 60s and 70s, Hockney painted a series of works depicting couples in interior settings. He worked with friends and family to achieve natural and intimate scenes of domestic life. . About posing for this painting, Lawson said: “The painting is set in my little, tiny flat in Wigmore Place. According to Wayne, I’m playing an A-flat on the clavichord I’m sitting beside – I wanted to call the painting A Flat, you see – but now I can see perfectly well that it’s a G. I would play this note when I was sitting for the portrait. I can hear it now. That note captures an atmosphere – there’s a quietude, a stillness about it.” . From the Tate exhibition “David Hockney: 60 years of work”, about the series of Double Portraits: . ”Near life-sized, these carefully staged compositions combine informal poses and settings with the grandeur and formality of traditional portraiture. Almost all these works are painted in acrylic, which dries quickly and cannot be scraped off the canvas, thus demanding a greater degree of planning and meticulous application. This process, with its greater capacity for scrutiny and observation, meant that Hockney could work from photographic studies to sketch out overall compositions but he chose to paint his figures from life.” .

A Series of Rooms has been given an AJAC award for “Divulgation of Architecture”! @bonelldoriga has been awarded another prize for “Product Design” for LLUR table. . A Series of Rooms is a collection of domestic spaces, an exploration into the imaginary of the housing archetype – as portrayed in art, media, and human studies. . The platform www.aseriesofrooms.com has as its main objective the diffusion of this ongoing research project that focuses on the fundamental architectural space, the room, throughout history. . A Series of Rooms aims to expand and enrich our vision on the subject from a multidisciplinary and transversal point of view, detached from mainstream contemporary aesthetics. It wants to include different ways of living and different ways of seeing, in an effort to create an atlas of the construction of domesticity. . Over the last year we have published more than 180 works, and have been able to establish connections between pieces that go beyond their format, period or origin; reformulating our approach to the creation and representation of the room. . The AJAC awards are given by the Association of Young Architects of Catalonia . #aseriesofrooms #bonelldoriga #PremisAJACXI #domesticity #documentingspace

Luis Barragán / Andrés Arochi and Nohbords, Casa Estudio / Ecos, 1948 / 2017 . Director Andrés Arochi has collaborated with choreographer Diego Mur of Nohbords to create a piece that combines dance, architecture and cinematography. Created especially for Luis Barragán’s Casa Estudio, the choreography shows entranced dancers twisting their bodies in seemingly random movements that relate directly to the domestic architecture that Barragán once inhabited himself: to the materiality of the volumes and to its walls, painted in bright colours and bathed in natural light. . Originally built in 1948, the house underwent many changes, as it functioned as a laboratory of ideas for the architect, inspired by vernacular Mexican constructions and Arabic gardens, in a quest for an architecture that would be serene but joyful, modern, and nostalgic at the same time. .

Pezo von Ellrichshausen, Exterior, 2017 . Chilean architects Mauricio Pezo and Sofia von Ellrichshausen’s series of paintings “Exterior” presents details of spaces depicted in ambiguous shapes of colour. The resulting images work both as abstract compositions and figurative representations of nondescript architectures. . In their own words: “We are not interested in describing a particular moment of the day, they are not operating with that precision. They evoke a certain mood, a certain character and atmosphere, which is closer to the memory of a place, to our own imagination of a memorable place. In fact, the very size of the painting introduces a distortion of reality because your body, the position of your eyes, defines a perspective that is always changing.” .

Château de Coucy, 1220s . Built in the 1220s by Enguerrand III, Lord of Coucy, the castle rapidly became an architectural landmark for the size of its towers, far larger than anything that was being built at the time. . The drawings of the renovation of the castle, which Eugène Viollet-le-Duc directed in the 19th century, show an architecture of grand, carefully detailed rooms in contraposition with the narrow spaces projected to defend and protect the castle from external attack. . The castle was occupied by the German army during World War I and destroyed in 1917. . More images and info in aseriesofrooms.com .

Henri Matisse, The Swimming Pool, 1952 . After visiting a swimming pool in the summer 1952 and concluding it was just too hot to stay there, Matisse decided to bring the feeling of diving into a swimming pool into his own home, covering the walls of the dining room of his studio in Hotel Régina in Cimiez, Nice (where he lived from 1938 to 1943, and from 1949 until his death in 1954) with cut-out figures of swimmers and sea creatures painted in blue gouache. . The “drawn with scissors” figures were pinned into the wall over the height of Matisse’s head, giving the impression to the visitors of the room that they were underwater with bathers swimming around you. . The site-specific piece was sold to MoMA in 1975 and first exhibited in 1977. From the press release: . --“Cutting colored papers permits me to draw in color” Matisse stated in the early 1950s, during the final stage of his career. “For me it is a matter of simplification. Instead of establishing a contour, and then filling it with color –the one modifying the other- I draw directly in color… This guarantees a precise union of the two processes; they become one.” Owing to ill health toward the end of his life, he was unable to paint at his easel, and so he shaped his material by cutting his own hand-painted paper. With the aid of assistants, who pinned each colored section to the wall according to his instructions, the artist composed an extraordinary group of decoration that included thematic compositions, designs for stained glass windows, wall ceramics, church vestments, and the celebrated Blue Nude series of which the environmental mural The Swimming Pool is the most important-- .

Jacob Lawrence, Panel 57 of the Migration Series, 1941 . "My pictures express my life and experiences. I paint the things I know about and the things I have experienced. The things I have experienced extend into my national, racial and class group. So I paint about the American Negro working class." . Jacob Lawrence’s paintings depict the African American experiences and struggles combining social realism based on a meticulous historical research, with modern abstraction, in a style he referred to as “dynamic cubism”. . His early success –he became the first African-American painter to be exhibited in the MoMA with his series about the Great Migration when he was only 25– and his long career –he died in 2000– allowed him to influence several generations of artists, both from the museums and from the several universities where he taught. .
