I hadn't heard of either. After a quick bit of browsing (too quick really) I'll say Boltanski. He's done some interesting installations, and I kinda like some of those ridiculous minimalistish things...

I like the Boltanski examples you set up, very interesting!

Boltaaaaanskiiiiiiiiii!
Though I like the other guy's landscape, too. All I know about these artists is the pictures you show me, for better or worse.

Boltanski is cool!

Yeah, the woman with the box fetish goes with Boltanski.

Morgan said...

I enjoy Boltanski.

Am going with Bomberg. I wasn't sure so I looked up some of their other works. I particularly liked Bomberg's other ones like the first you have here, in particular an angular factory scene and a cubist orgy. Go bonberg!

This was close, but after a Google Image search, I'm going with Bomberg.

Rose City Reader said...

Bomberg for me because I love the landscape.

BOLTANSKI!!!!!

Boltanski, although neither are really my cup of tea.

Boltanski, though I wouldn't mind having that landscape in my livingroom (the box towers would be a bit hard to navigate around).

Boltanski!

Boltanski

Bomberg for me, I think. I might dig Boltanski in person, but I'm not especially confident of that.

This was hard, but I think I'll have to go with Boltanski.

Polls close with Boltanski the victor, 13-4.
