Peter Sutherland Interview
Photographers in this day and age are a dime a dozen. Anyone with a decent size budget can buy into the idea of being a photographer, but not many actually have the skill to capture beautiful imagery such as New York based photographer, Peter Sutherland. Not only is his work best described as such, it is safe to say that his photos are some of the most authentic depictions of showcasing life through a lens, as he applies traditional documenting techniques to capture the hidden beauty in ordinary objects of everyday life.

Jay Paavonpera Interview
New York artist Jay Paavonpera is interested in exploring contemporary industrial dialogue; namely, he finds objects and appropriates them in a studio/gallery setting, in the process, changing their story, context and meaning. Working with a decidedly minimal aesthetic, Jay builds, redefines and paints from his Brooklyn studio, creating pieces that relate to their environment in unique ways as well as posing questions of our own relationships with our surroundings. Intrigued, we caught up with Jay for a quick chat about his work and a poke around his studio.

Marina Abramović and The Institute31/01/2013
One of the most important and influential artists of her generation, Marina Abramović's performance art over the last four decades has seen her act out such extremities as repeatedly stabbing her own hand, had a stranger point a loaded gun at her head, sat in silence for 700 hours, set herself on fire and act out her own funeral. Her latest project is arguably her largest and something she sees as the culmination of a life's work: the opening of the Marina Abramović Foundation for the Preservation of Performance Art.
