In love with ‘le membre fantôme’ by artist Vanessa Beecroft at Venice Biennale 2015, beautiful installation that echoes the early twentieth century avant-garde.

 

The visitor is taken back to the classical language of sculpture through a conceptual perspective, which leads us towards an intimate gallery room inhabited by timeless statuary and presents a scene that is visible only at a distance, as the viewer must look through a crevice carved out of two marble walls.

Jennie Hensler | Visual Stories

Current trip.  
 

“I take pleasure in my transformations. I look quiet and consistent, but few know how many women there are in me.”― Anaïs Nin

Jenni Hensler is a NY based creative director, costume designer/stylist and visual narrator whose work explores the relationships of time and space, nature and science, and the meaning human consciousness attaches to unexplained phenomena. The spirit of magic realism runs through her work.

 

She creates narratives through the manipulation of space and form. It is primal, and transcends language. It’s the most immediate form of communication.

“For over ten years I’ve been creating visual stories – from designing costumes and wearable sculpture pieces for musicians and editorial to building sets and video collages. This is my passion, and my way of connecting with others. I am grateful to make a living doing what I love and to be able to collaborate with so many wonderful and talented people along the way. Each project I work on inspires me more and new ideas continue to emerge. They all seem to have a common language and I feel that now is the perfect time to bring all of these ideas together.”

 

In her upcoming art show Persona Somnia, November 2015, Hensler invites each one of us to explore our own intimate personal journey. Visit her exhibition fundraiser (last day May 8)

Chloë Sevigny | the interview

img-chloe-sevigny_091439252606
 

The photography book Chloë Sevigny (Rizzoli), together with the fact that our favourite fashion icon is turning 40 this year, have created a big buzz in the fashion industry, with almost any fashion magazine featuring an interview with her lately. I have read them all cause I have always loved her “not very beautiful” face, her shoes designs and her rebellious attitude.

 

So far, what I have found to be the most intriguing approach, is the one taken by Interview magazine. To celebrate the publication, Interview asked 12 friends and colleagues of the likes of Juergen Teller, Larry Clark, Kim Gordon, With Stillman, Rita Ackermann, Humberto Leon and Carol Lim, to each contribute one question for Sevigny to answer. The result is a honest and very intimate portrait, like the book itself.

 

“To be a true icon, you have to have style emanating from you. And you have to have figured it out on your own and have a point of view, a perspective, and be able to translate it in some personal way.”

 

Read the awesome interview here.
