When pieces of art acquire their own bodyguards, it’s definitely worth noting. Feuerman’s monumental sculptures Leda and the Swan and DurgaMa have been so successful at this year's Venice Biennale that they literally require guarding.

Both sculptures are part of the 2015 Biennale Exhibit: Time –Space-Existence presented by Personal Structures, Global Art Affairs running through November 22, 2015 in Palazzo Mora.

The studio received word from the director of the fair, René Reitmeyer and the curators of the Personal Structures exhibition brought to Venice by the GAA Foundation, that despite providing Leda and the Swan with a tent to establish a boundary and protect her from the elements: People persist in trying to touch her to see if the Swan is a pool tube or an actual sculpture. 

 

The sculpture has it’s own bodyguard. Leda’s fans are tenacious in their desire to touch the surreal beauty and according to the Venice curator: “It seems unstoppable.”

Leda and DurgaMa have garnered a massive response while on display at the Biennale. It’s estimated that up to 200,000 people have laid eyes on Feuerman’s enchanting sculptures this summer. Crowds continue to gather and Leda and DurgaMa never have less than 30 people admiring them on a daily basis.

In response to the Leda/DurgaMa phenomenon, Feuerman will be returning to Venice from August 15th to August 19th and will be making an artist visit to Palazzo Mora and can be found there daily from 11:00 am until closing time.

She will be doing some painting while she is there and it will be an exciting opportunity to watch her work. She looks forward to connecting with and greeting fervent enthusiasts of her sculptures.

This exhibition is an invitation for viewers to connect with the sculptures and allow the line between reality and art to be blurred.

Feuerman’s pieces freeze time and capture the finer points of reality and accentuate details that people are often too busy to admire or acknowledge.

The custom built pool and its swimmers defy everyday distractions and invite people to pause and seek reality in art, and through art be returned into an even more monumental reality.

Victoria Harbour is breathtaking and Harbour City’s commitment to public art exhibitions and celebrating culture is admirable. It’s an incredible location and the perfect arena for the public to interact with Feuerman’s sculptures.

Aria Gallery: Feurman Shapes Reality by Carole Feuerman

Viewing Feuerman’s exhibit Shapes of Reality at Aria Gallery in Florence is how summer evenings are meant to be spent.

In a city so rich in culture, art addiction is rampant, and Feuerman’s Swimmers satisfy even the most ravenous appetite for beauty.

One distinct mark of a ‘Feuerman’ is the sculptor’s unique practice of sculpting and painting all clothing and accessories. Where others simply use actual clothing, Feuerman prefers hand crafted perfection to mere product. Reality after all, is in the details.

The sculptor’s life-size Diver is on view in the garden at Aria. Diver seeks to capture the physicality of the diver as his body arches and bends backwards. This diving shape represents perseverance and balance as well as the struggle to achieve.

Feuerman sought to accentuate this elegant shape to highlight the beautiful struggle of body/muscle that ensues when a diver pushes themselves past the limits of the ordinary.

As an artist, Feuerman recognizes in the symbol of the diver a kindred artistic spirit. The Diver is perched on the edge, readying himself for more than just a dive; he is about to create and define his own reality. Feuerman pursues this same bold path with her sculptures.
