It seems French artist Pierre Huyghe put entire modernity at Auepark's compost site for open air composting.


At first sight, there was a big mess. Then you realized some details: One of the 7,000 Beuys oaks had been uprooted. There was an exact pile of square-cut concrete slabs. A pile of broken concrete pieces might have symbolized the broken dream of eternal advance and mobility. Besides it, there was an ant's nest. It had almost the same size.

During preview week, you could watch art world celebrities in suits and elegant shoes or dresses and high-heels trying to find their ways through this mud without getting all too dirty. At the center of the mud installation, there was a classic white reclining nude. Nevertheless, you could not see the face, as a live beehive covered the entire head.

The bees flew around and pollinated aphrodisiac and psychotropic plants like Afghan poppy. More live animals were part of the work: There also should have been a dog with a pink leg, but we did not see it. There were tadpoles and little frogs in a mathematically squarish concrete container.


LV luxury Handbag Company was one of the sponsors of this work. Chris joked, 'These were the first LV tadpoles, I ever came across...'

A further issue is that video gianmg became one of the all-time main forms of entertainment for people of any age. Kids have fun with video games, and also adults do, too. The actual XBox 360 has become the favorite gianmg systems for many who love to have a lot of video games available to them, in addition to who like to play live with people all over the world. Thanks for sharing your opinions.
