The Ghostvillage Project

The Ghostvillage Project was created over 3 days on the west coast of Scotland. 6 artists – Timid, Remi/Rough, System, Stormie Mills, Juice 126, Derm – were given free reign to paint in an abandoned 1970s village. Working together on huge collaborative walls and individually in hidden nooks and crannies all over the site the artists realised long held dreams and were inspired by the bleakness and remoteness of the site. Drawing on the history of the village the artists’ stated intent on completion of the project was to populate the ghostvillage with the art and characters that it deserved.

raphael zarka

riding zaviallof

a collector of forms, skateboarder / artist raphaël zarka captures the sculptural possibilities of
structures such as a concrete breakwater, unfinished monorail or the unrealized constructions
which litter the urban landscape. influenced by minimalism and land art, zarka’s work is based
on an almost scientific research of spaces and forms, guided by the need to order objects,
he says, ‘to organize the chaos of the things that interest me.‘ his experimental approach to volume,
geometry and materials resulting largely from the artist’s experience of skateboarding, has enabled
him to become familiar with the surface dynamics of urban space.

one particular series of photographs, ‘riding modern art’, is a composition of eleven photographs
of skaters whose images are captured riding works of public art. his photographs emphasize the
hidden dynamism in many of the public sculptures we encounter:
what strikes me, is that skaters prioritize a relationship with the work rather than a mechanical
relationship aesthetic. for them, all the interest of a sculpture is the variety of movements that
it recommends.

zarka has an upcoming exhibition at the french cultural center in milan, entitled ‘rhombus sectus’.
the show will focus on a selection of works produced over the last four years, witnessing the artist’s
linguistic eclecticism which moves between high art historical references and those of popular culture.
