-- This week, Joas Sebastian Nebe is featured on The Wrighter as the blog, created by Kobina Wright, passes the half-way mark of exploring the work of contemporary artists and discussing the auctioning of Edvard Munch’s “The Scream.” The tribute to “The Scream” will continue through the end of August 2012.
Included in Nebe’s many exhibits: Intrude Art and Life at the Museum of Modern Art in Shanghai in 2008, where Santiago Capriccio, a short epilogue to the Philosophical Cartoon cycle, playing upon the “4th Dimension” Video was chosen to be one out of 100 non-Chinese artists to be displayed on public video screens in Shanghai.
When asked about his favorite work of his, Nebe stated, “My favorite work is the film series called Totem Toons (http://www.jsnebe.de/
film7.html) because in these films I combine the spiritual power of the totem originating from the Native American culture with the materialistic aspect of small town architecture. The films are cartoons made of photographs, which I shot in Wyoming and South Dakota.”
The Wrighter’s tribute to “The Scream” was created in May, after the record breaking auction in New York, and features two artists a week. Nebe is the sixteenth featured artist and shares his images of some of his work.
