Insa at Londonewcastle Exhibition Space 'Self Reflection is greater than Self Projection'

Last night we were invited along to this private view at the Londonewcastle Exhibition Space in Shoreditch, showcasing the work of self proclaimed artist and fetishist Insa, entitled 'Self Reflection is greater than Self Projection'. The space was transformed with the help of some fantastic digital printing  by graphic design company BAF Graphics - tits and ass literally festooned every nook and cranny. Major photo opportunity ensued.

SEQUEL - FILM TEASE



I know I'm supposed to be showing you the 'Making Of' the current windows scheme, but I've got side tracked and momentarily inspired to actually get down to finishing the film I've been trying to put together for the last 12 months. A year in the making? Oh yes. Enjoy the tease - peace out. x

Selfridges Oxford Street Windows: Womens Designer Galleries

Faithful Reader - as promised, here are the finished Oxford Street Windows - celebrating the launch of Selfridges new Womens Designer Galleries. Without doubt, this was one of the most technically ambitious installations I've ever been involved with, combining projections, lighting, movement and drapery on a massive scale - not too mention getting four tons of gravel into the windows. 

Working from a menagerie of references including fashion filmography, the marble mines of Carrara, recent exhibitions at the Tate and Hayward galleries as well as the clothes themselves, each window space is dedicated to showcasing the pieces of an individual label - and what seriously amazing labels they are: 

Ann Demeulemeester: 
Celine:
Junya Watanabe:

Comme Des Garcons (1)
Balenciaga:
Alexander McQueen:
A. F. Vandervorst:
Comme Des Garcons (2)
Dries Van Noten:
Gareth Pugh:
Givenchy:
Lanvin:
Maison Martin Margiela:
Rick Owens:
These windows were photographed during the daytime - however, you should almost certainly check them out in the dark - thats when they really come alive....

Check back later in the week for a comprehensive 'Making Of' for both the Oxford and Duke windows.

Selfridges Duke Street Windows: 'Colours Fade'

Faithful Reader - its been a long week, but at last I can share with you the fruits of our labour. Five nights of installing has left me a sleepy beaver with dry palms (I blame the starching on Oxford Street - pictures to follow on Monday!) but here are the windows that I had a hand in designing at the beginning of the year. I'll post a more comprehensive 'Making Of' later in the week. In the mean time, enjoy! Click on them to make them bigger, or go to my flickr hereOh, and get your butts down to Selfridges to go and take a proper look! Ciao x

Supra-Sensorial Bin Private View

First Thursdays last week, and went along to this small but perfectly formed exhibition of video and live performance works at the Old Victorian Vaults off Great Eastern Street. The space was curated in such a way that the video pieces were looped to play on different projectors against different parts of the space throughout the evening. I especially like the site specific element that this one had - big face between two pillars:
 I was later told that all the video footage featured was actually salvaged deleted content from various video editing bin folders, which were re-edited to form this new work, underscored by some seriously affecting synthesised ambient beats.

March is NOW - Scheme Tease

Title! We have a title at last! I love a title. The Duke Street windows I have collaborated on with the in-house design team will launch next Friday. 'Colours Fade' is our sort of unofficial name for it. The image above is taken outside near to where I live - and its unintentionally the perfect tease for what's to come.
