Entitled Subhuman Inhuman Superhuman, yesterday launched the exhibition at the Triennale di Milano presented as a Gesamtkunstwerk (the German for “total work of art”). I was lucky enough to been invited to the press preview and had the chance to listen to Rick in person talking about this incredible retrospective. Taking complete creative control of the project, Owens has picked designs from his archive as well as furniture, films, graphics and sculptures. It also explore the work of artists who have been influential in the brand’s identity like Pierre Molinier and Marcel Duchamp.

 

If you are in Milan you should definitely go and visit it,
and if you are not here there is no better excuse to come around.

 
Subhuman Inhuman Superhuman will is open from December 15 2017 to March 25 2018 at Triennale di Milano.

Chickenshit Conspiracy X Karl Grandin | Occult Institute


 

The hottest Russian collective, Chickenshit, that I had the pleasure to interview a few months ago for my blog – check their interview here - is back with another super juicy collaboration.

 

This time the Saint Petersburg based guys have teamed up with Karl Grandin, ex art director of the influential Swedish music magazine Pop and founder the clothing label Cheap Monday. A set of three handkerchiefs and two t-shirts, strictly black and white and packaged in a black wooden matryoshka doll, have been launched in conjunction with the Spectacle art show in Saint Petersburg. I so wish I was there…Saint Petersburg is every day more on my “MUST GO AND VISIT” list!

Michel Comte @Milan Triennale



Today it was the first relaxed Sunday I had in a month or so and I was exactly in the mood to go and visit some inspiring exhibition. I was lucky because this month Milan Triennale is hosting “Michel Comte. Crescendo fotografico”, an awesome exhibition which retraces the career of one of the best contemporary fashion and portrait photographers, definitely worth a visit. 
The show includes 87 images and 20 collages, each one of them is composed of test images taken from various rolls that give an overall vision of the complexity of Comte’s work before he is happy with a final shot. The selection of the images in the exhibition is fabulous and provides a broader demonstration of the photographer’s work: not just his famous fashion advertising campaigns, but also black-and-white portraits.
Here I post some of my fav shots that I grabbed there. 
Don’t miss it if it happens that you are in Milan!

[Untitled] Schilte&Portielje

I have just come across, via Schon magazine, the fascinating collage work of Huub Schilte and Jacqueline Portielje from Rotterdam, www.schilteportielje.com. The couple works together in a time-consuming process of transforming, drawing, painting, adding and subtracting and creates work that deals with the fundamental aspect of human existence, but always under the ambiguity flag, in a transformation where new possibilities and ideas are generated constantly.
I love that in each work there is room for personal interpretation.
Do you like it?
I’m in awe.
