Sometimes a piece of art just seems to have fallen from the sky. Literally, but also in a figurative way. This kind of works is better left alone: any attempt to understand or conceptualise this art is redundant. It’s not necessarily the best art, but we shouldn’t deny its existence. Dico, our drummer, is an expert in the field of ‘sheer art’. Therefore, he’s the designated person to write something about our favourite art that appears to have fallen from the sky. “Sorry for harming the following works by trying to say something about it."

David Bade, Anita (2001)

Art Corner: Dico from Lewsberg discusses his favourite artA public sculpture in the city centre of Rotterdam. Making a bad sculpture is not easy at all. In this case, the artist came pretty close. One of the other good things about this sculpture is that it is placed in the way of pedestrians trying to cross a big street. Usually, public art is situated in a place where it is not in the way of anything. Then why place it at all?

David Hammons, Bliz-aard Ball Sale (1983)

Art Corner: Dico from Lewsberg discusses his favourite artIn the winter of 1983, David Hammons sold snowballs of various size on the corner of a New York street. I have no words for this. Very good combination of humour and social critique.

Pierre Huyghe, Recollection (2011)

Art Corner: Dico from Lewsberg discusses his favourite artI knew he did video works (which I haven’t really seen) and that he was quite famous or at least doing well as an artist. And then quite unexpectedly I walked into a group exhibition in The Hague, and there was a little aquarium with a crab using a gold-coloured, Brancusi-like sculpture as a house. The feeling that this was a very good idea was really strong, and over the years this feeling only grew stronger. I still can’t explain why I’m having this feeling.

Chris Burden, Beam Drop (2008)

Art Corner: Dico from Lewsberg discusses his favourite artThis is made by hoisting up steel beams and then dropping them in wet concrete. Super cool.

Lisa Gliederpuppe, ASMR Salon Nana (ongoing)

To end this list with something earthly, here’s one of Lisa Gliederpuppe’s ASMR videos. ASMR (Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response) videos on YouTube create an experience in which everyday sounds trigger a tingling sensation on listeners. I am fascinated by Gliederpuppe’s infiltration method of this community. She investigates in a beautiful way both the bodily effects of sound and the people that are affected by it.

Lewsberg's debut album is out on February 1st.
