Statues are often idealized works of art. They are ideological, political or religious representations and attempt to turn their subjects into fascinating, eternal figures. Even when erected to keep alive the memory of a single person, a statue that lasts many generations will eventually establish itself as a symbol for the community. 

Statues are even more influential when they are monumental. An edifice can be said to be monumental when it is unusual, extraordinary and physically imposing. It has to be abnormal — as exceptional as the political or religious power itself — and also inseparable from its symbolic aspects.

The series “Colosses” is a study of the landscapes that embrace monumental commemorative statues.

Aoi Kotsuhiroi’s Orchidacea Hermaphroditus
Known for her conceptual “body objects,” the French-based artist explored the beauty of the grotesque with this provocatively named piece from her “Exotic Regrets” collection. The menacing heel asserts power as the foot concedes to the waxed linen rope, tying it down in the style of kinbaku, a Japanese form of bondage characterized by intricate knots and aesthetic rules for restraint.

There is really something special about the way Richard Gere carries himself in American Gigolo. His walk, mannerisms, gestures exude a certain nonchalance that just….unfff.
