New ISSEY MIYAKE Flagship store by TOKUJIN YOSHIOKA

10 Brook Street, London W1S 1BG

The new ISSEY MIYAKE flagship store in London opened its doors on 11th October. With over 5,000 sq feet and a frontage of 60 feet, the store occupies a prominent position between Bond Street and Hanover Square in the centre of Mayfair. Formally a bank, Tokujin Yoshioka has taken the space back to its original structure and transformed it into a visually enticing exploration of the old combined with advanced new elements. The juxtaposition of these opposing finishes creates a fascinating open structure that both surprises and delights the eye. All furniture, fittings and seating has been designed by Tokujin Yoshioka.

Maryland to Murano: Neckpieces and Sculptures by Joyce J. ScottMaryland to Murano: Neckpieces and Sculptures by Joyce J. Scott

31 October 2014

Maryland to Murano: Neckpieces and Sculptures by Joyce J. Scott

Exhibition, MAD Museum, New York, USA, until 22 march 2015.

In Joyce J. Scott’s hands, human adornment becomes a vehicle for social commentary and a means for confronting contentious issues affecting contemporary society. The expo features the personal and political narratives embedded in Scott’s work, which tackles such complex themes as poverty, rape, love, sex, racial stereotypes, and social disturbances, as well as tales from American and African history. Examined here is the relationship between Joyce J. Scott’s beaded and constructed jewellery and her more recent figural work executed at the Berengo Studio in Murano, Italy that combines beads and glass, demonstrating how her ability to construct forms from glass beads without the use of armatures allowed her to make an easy transition to crafting large, freestanding figures that accommodate complex narratives.

The Future of Fashion is Now

Exhibitio, Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen, Rotterdam, The Netherlands, until 18 January 2015.

The Future of Fashion is Now takes the visitor on a trip around the most innovative fashion from all over the world, with works by such designers as Viktor&Rolf (the Netherlands), Rejina Pyo (Korea) and Hussein Chalayan (Cyprus). The exhibition examines the critical stance that young fashion designers worldwide are adopting with regard to 'the fashion system' and the role of clothes in contemporary society.  Designers with non-Western backgrounds and designers from countries bordering Europe, where until recently there was little or no tradition of fashion, are actively..

Berlinde De Bruyckere

Exhibition, S.M.A.K., Gent, Belgium, until 8 february 2015.

S.M.A.K. opens its doors to a mid-career retrospective of the work of Belgian artist Berlinde De Bruyckere from 2000 until now. Early sculptures in cloth from the 1990s are on show, in combination with her later work with horse skins that brought her international acclaim. These are intermixed with the wax sculptures that in recent years slowly transmuted from human body to vegetal form. The most representative sculpture in this series, Kreupelhout (Cripplewood), the imposing installation that De Bruyckere created for the 2013 Belgian pavilion at La Biennale di Venezia, has been entirel..

Outer Space

Exhibition at Bundeskunsthalle in Bonn, until 22 February 2014.

The question of whether there has been life in outer space is one that has fascinated mankind for centuries. This matter also lies at the heart of the exhibition ‘Outer Space’ at the Bundeskunsthalle in Bonn, which contains items ranging from the bronze Nebra sky disk from 1600 BC - the oldest depiction of the cosmos - until the present day.

Anne Marie Laureys' ceramic works

Exhibition, gallery Sofie Lachaert, Tielrode, Belgium, until 16 november.

For Anne Marie Laureys, making is exploring the physical laws of the material. She creates spacious, fine, delicate forms that reveal the speed, fluency and the plasticity of clay. Into the thrown and altered forms she puts an extremely personal sensibility that goes hand in hand with the tension and flexibility of a wet pot. The forms are the result of a very physical and tangible human gesture, which has an air of mystery and sensuality, while also evoking a variety of other senses. Throwing is the language to go into the material, clay. The process starts by throwing a classic, symme..

“SW & ‘Dopey’” object - ceramics - 32 x 22 x 17 cm Belgian clay thrown on the wheel, altered and assembled; clay glazes (1120°-1180°C).

INTERIEUR 2014, much more than an expo

INTERIEUR’s head curator Joseph Grima translates the central theme ‘The Home Does Not Exist’ into ‘domesticity as the site of encounter between design and everyday life’. This discourse is realised at the Xpo by way of a fistful of simple light-boxes exploring historical and contemporary domesticity. Its tentacles spread throughout the city of Kortrijk, as well, including the former Broel School, a beautiful building that afterwards will be demolished to make way for the construction of residential apartments.
