klara kristalova: where the owls spend their days alison jacques gallery, london february 27 – april 11, 2009

czech-born artist klara kristalova now lives and works in sweden. her recently opened exhibit at alison jacques gallery is her first solo london show. kristalova is known for working plaster, bronze, wood and ceramics to create small scale figures which often allude to ornamental objects. through these pieces, she tells allegorical stories that reference fairytales and folklore. for this show, kristalova has created a tall display case which houses a number of ceramic sculptures. this case makes reference to the display of ornamental objects and also refers to the psyche, ‘signifying different states of mind’ through the objects. the materiality of these unsettling characters attempts to signify their ‘imagined social awkwardness and physical fragility’.

Your goal is be able to maximize your gears quick and head out and destroy your enemies. [url=http://www.ygscn.net/BuyGold.php?gid=4]WAR Gold[/url] is currently the most highly anticipated massively multiplayer role playing game for the last 2 years. Experts expect it to be a great battle against the current king of MMORPGs, World of Warcraft. World of Warcraft currently holds 10 million subscribers world wide. Warhammer Online is expected to have close to half that population.
