Has anyone had any experience with installation art?
How to find spaces?
Do artists usually work with a team?
I dont enjoy drawings/paintings that much because you can only spectate, you cant touch or interact with the artwork.
Installation is so 70s. Installation and performance are the mediums of the current academic institution aka boring and 30 years behind. Gives old people a hard on, seems pretty pointless for the younger generation.
Big installations that require a team is something you do when your an established artist. You need gallery connections to pull it off most times. Most installation artists have started out painting or sculpting then progressed into installation work. Of course you could argue the definition of "installation". You could say that any artwork that take the room in consideration is an installation piece. Yves Kleins (I think??) empty gallery was an installation because the room *didnt* have any artwork in it. I've made some installation work but they've been in connection to different exhibitions (I'm talking school exhibitions and open atelier stuff here). I do mock-ups before hand on the computer. That's a hot tip for you OP if you want to start out on installation - do them in a 3d program before you purchase expensive material!
Pic related is one of those mock-ups.
Jesus Christ dude
I dont have a garage.
That's a really cool 3D model. What program do you use to create the mock-ups?
I'm currently in school so that can help as far as space goes.
Are you ever given money to create an installation? It seems like it can get very expensive quickly.
Lastly, did you know how to use power tools prior to making installations or was it something you learned on the way( if you do use them)?
Sorry for all the questions!
The previous pic was done in Photoshop, but now I use 3ds max (pic related). I haven't gotten money for installations, you usually get it with grants or by working with a gallery. This usually require a higher education, where I live at least. I advice you to keep your eyes open for construction sites etc. Visit junkyards and stuff. You can find a lot of nice materials and objects there, installations doesn't have to be pricy! As far as power tools goes, I had access to them when I attended an art school. You can probably find some workshops near where you live, where you pay a member fee and get access to their tools and an intro class or something like that. Look around online.
