Ousmane Sow #2

Ousmane Sow's home and studio, Dakar, Senegal.

Ousmane Sow called this house, in which he lived until his death, The Sphinx because for him it anticipated the series he was planning to create on the Egyptians. The head, arms and back of the Sphinx are represented symbolically in an architecture that is resolutely modern, which he had designed as a model, as a sculpture, as an individual work of art.

That was in 1991. The house was finished in 1999, the year he completed his Battle of the Little Big Horn.
While creating that series, he produced the tiles for his house with his own hands and covered the walls with the same materials used for his sculptures. In other words, there is a perfect match between the works and the place, which could soon join the list of the world’s legendary houses.

Über 50 Jahre bis zu seinem Tod blieb Otto Piene seinem Atelier in Düsseldorf treu. (bron: Weser Kurier, foto: Federico Gambarini)

Ein verblichenes Klingelschild ist die einzige Spur zu dem Ort in der Hüttenstraße 104 in Düsseldorf, wo in den 60er-Jahren wegweisende Kunstgeschichte geschrieben wurde. „Piene Atelier“ und „Piene priv.“ ist auf den Klingeln in blasser Schrift zu lesen. Hinter einer schweren Eisentür liegt ein unscheinbares Hinterhaus. Dort, in den hohen Räumen einer ehemaligen Möbelfabrik, arbeitete und wohnte bis zu seinem Tod im Sommer 2014 der Zero-Künstler Otto Piene, wenn er in Deutschland war.

The Homes of (7) Famous Artists

"When Claude Monet, moved into this French estate in 1883, he found that the grounds lent themselves to his two passions: gardening and painting. The house—which is about 40 miles northeast of Paris, in the town of Giverny—is where the founder of Impressionism worked and lived until his death."

"Located in Mexico City is the home of Frida Kahlo. It was in this cobalt-blue-painted building that Kahlo was born and raised, and eventually lived with her husband, Diego Rivera. In 1958 the home was converted into the Frida Kahlo Museum, which now attracts roughly 300,000 visitors each year."

"In 1945, Jackson Pollock married fellow painter Lee Krasner and moved into this Long Island, New York, home. It was here that the father of Abstract Expressionism not only lived but also painted. Evidence of his work can still be observed on the floorboards of the house, which was converted into a museum in 1988. Pictured is the studio Pollock worked in, which was located right next to his home."

"The spectacular Château du Clos Lucé is a small château in the city of Amboise, France. Located roughly 135-miles southwest of Paris, this manor was famously for being the official residence of Leonardo da Vinci between 1516 and 1519, when Leonardo died. The Renaissance-style château has since been restored, and turned into a museum."

"When Pablo Picasso moved into Château of Vauvenargues in 1959, he was already the world’s most famous living artist. And it is next to his beloved mansion in Aix-en-Provence, France, that Picasso was buried after his death. Today, the home is periodically open to the public, and visitors can tour a space that’s remained relatively untouched since the time the creator of Cubism lived in it."

"The residence of Salvador Dalí (1904–1989) in Cadaques, Spain. The artist lived and worked in this home, roughly 20 miles south of the French border, from 1930 to 1982. The building has since been converted into a museum that houses much of his work, including Figures Lying on the Sand and Inaugural Gooseflesh."

"Winslow Homer (1836-1910) called this structure both his studio and home. Located in Scarborough, Maine, the home was declared a National Historic Landmark in 1965."
