Love Vigilante

I suppose most of us are lonely in this world, but you have to fall tremendously in love to find it out. -Orson Welles

I breathe in and out and decide that today, I will be tall.

A Towering Figure Enclosed Within a Glass Greenhouse by Susanne Ussing
Susanne Ussing, ‘I Drivhuset’ (‘In the Greenhouse’), 1980. Ussing was a Danish artist and architect, with a special interest ceramics. This mixed-media piece brings together the world of sculpture and architecture by placing the former inside the latter. Classical parallels are easily conjured here. Like a latter-day (and feminine) Zeus at Olympia, this ginormous female figure is too large for the confines of the glasshouse, which looks like it might shatter were she to move too freely; like a Crouching Aphrodite of immodest proportions, she looks vulnerable and coquettish all at once. At the same time, her skin of newspapers and skeleton of metal and wood thoroughly modern - not quite distracting from the gracefulness of her pose, but instead under-girding her with firm foundations.


Susanne Ussing (1940-1998, Danish) - I Drivhuset installed at Ordrupgaardsamlingen (In the Glasshouse), Denmark, 1980. It is composed of granite and porous materials.

“At the start, it seems, Hemingway was attempting to write a novel very different from what would become The Sun Also Rises, which made his name as one of ‘those ones with their clear restrained writing.’ He imagined a book in which the ‘whole business’ of life gets expressed, in all of its messy detours and associations.”
