Carnovsky RGB Exhibit

Sweet expo entitled "RGB" by Carnovsky, an italian duo consisting of Francesco Rugi and Silvia Quintanilla, at the Johanssen Gallery in Berlin. Different colored lights determine what is and isn't visible. Dope!

Jill Silvia

Very impressive work by Jill Silvia, who may have potentially used up every molecule of patience to create this hand-cut paper art. Be sure to check out the "Structures" section on the website - insanely cool.

Check out this short video for Bahrain Telecommunications Company, or Batelco for short. Created by Alex & Steffen, a german creative group, this short took one year to produce using 2D and 3D animation alongside real imagery. Very cool.

Margiela - Untitled

Perfume recommendation of the month: Maison Martin Margiela's "Untitled" (of course they named it that). I'm pretty sure it's unisex (it would be), although one of the brand's perfume marketing coordinators told me that this was "debatable". The scent came out in the beginning of the year, but I've only just gotten around to appreciating it. It's a very interesting smell made with galbanum, lentiscus, orange blossom, incense and white musk. It has a sweet burnt wood feel to it. I've been wearing it all day and I really enjoy it (not to mention have gotten about ten "what's that perfume?" today). The bottle is interesting as well; designed in collaboration with Fabien Baron, it stays true to the simplicity of the brand. The slight greenish tint of the perfume itself goes nicely with the bottles shape, too. Perhaps I'm looking at a perfume switch?

Larry Clark's "Kiss the Past Hello" x MAM Paris

I really enjoyed Larry Clark's controversial "Kiss the Past Hello" expo at the Musée d'Art Moderne in Paris. So much so that I took this video to show you a couple of the photos. I felt that it was important to keep an open mind when I was walking through rooms full of semi-to-full-on-pornographic imagery. Nudity doesn't bother me at all, on the contrary I find it to be beautiful when presented in the right metaphorical and sometimes literal light, but some of the photos taken by Larry Clark were downright disturbing - a pregnant woman injecting herself with heroin being one of those examples. Then again, the whole point seemed to be about how far he can take his lens, which buttons he can push and how many fires he can spark through a showing of some very tough realities. Enjoy!

Jean-Michel Basquiat x Musée d'Art Moderne

First, a brief note on the beauty of the museum itself. I mean, I've visited it before, but this time I really noticed some of the funky artchitechture they've got. I regret not taking any pictures of the outside area, where young sk8rs ollied on graffiti-covered concrete. These neon lights were beautiful, hung up behind the ticket counters.
Translates to: "I posess neither the museum of modern art nor the black star" (installation by Pierre Huygue) and "enough with this sureal world" (installation by Claude Lévêque).

Now, onto the dopeness that is Basquiat. One of my all time favorites. I wasn't expecting to visit such an extensive collection! It was wonderful to see so many of his works. It felt like I would walk into one room where there were about a dozen paintings, then a "expo continues this way" sign, then another dozen, then another sign, then more, then more, then more! There were over a hundred paintings, sculptures and drawings from several North American and European galleries exposed in honor of the artists' birthday. The expo was organized so as to recreate the chronological path of Basquiat's life as one of the linchpin artists of the 1980s. It's baffling to think that he died at the young age of 27 and completed such an incredible array of works in such a short time. (Please excuse the surreptitious photography, as I had to pull some sketchy moves to take them).

This last one wasn't taken by me, but was at the show. I was so excited to finally see (in real life) the works from the Basquiat/Warhol collaboration that took place between 1984 and 1987.

FIAC 2010 x Tony Cragg

This was one of my absolute favorites at the FIAC this year. Tony Cragg is a genius! An incredibly well pre-planned sculpture made of wood that portrays different profiles when looked at from different angles. I absolutely loved the look and feel of this peice. Intricate and yet so subtle.
