AFTER THE VOID

GG’s Halea teams up with Maria Vega of the Ministry of Nomads for an exhibition that explores states of consciousness which emerge from the quiet stillness and ecstasy of the free mind. Diverse in their medium and technicality, the artworks and performances draw inspiration from moments of self-transcendence and eminent awareness that are not subordinate […]

THE LIGHT SHOW

  This sublime exhibition presents how the fluidity of matter is embodied by light traveling in space and time. Art in its purest form transcends meaning and rises to a level of self-liberation through an emancipation of the senses. Constantly surrounded by hyper-stimulating screens and moving image content, light has the capacity to reduce all […]

MONOLITH Magazine

‘ONLY YOUR BELIEF IMPRISONS YOU. EVERYTHING IS QUESTIONABLE.’ MONOLITH is one of the most stimulating reads out there on the magazine market. It is a bi-annual fusion of an investigative science bible, spiritually explorative kaleidoscope and philosophic psychedelia. It brings together the different disciplines in an intellectually appealing and visually absorbing crescendo. Here’s a little […]

Gold in the Crucible

For three days the Hoxton Arches were the site of the extraordinary exhibition Gold in the Crucible which was a kind of symbolic coming of age for the participating artists, in form of a continuation of the sculptural exploration with trans:form earlier this year. Curated by Hanna Laura Kaljo the exhibition was the processual result of the six artists […]

DIY Taxidermy with Charlie Tuesday Gates

To drink on a Tuesday night would be the absolute last thing on my mind (#SchoolNight), and for others, it would be to attend an interactive DIY taxidermy session at The Book Club with artist Charlie Tuesday Gates — which I had the immense pleasure of doing. Charlie has more charisma in her surgical-gloved pinky […]

Indian New Wave

It’s the time of the year when the days progressively start getting darker and colder… The only thing we can do to survive this Vitamin D – vacuum is to snuggle up in bed, drink hot chocolate and watch movies; the more the merrier (apply this to the amount of movies to be watched consecutively […]

Mike Stout designs for Paranoid Mandroid

Few people one arbitrarily meets are as exciting and talented as Mike Stout… it’s almost esteem-shattering. This is a name you’ll have to keep an eye out for, or maybe two, or hire several professional spies to keep tabs – whatever floats your boat. Mike’s work is at once obscure, surreal, comedic and controversial – […]

FRIEZE l a n d

Being awkard Alice for a day: Hours and hours of wandering and floating around, examining, searching, interpreting, socializing, coffee drinking, questioning, recording, perceiving, and note taking (…etc etc) now provisionally result in this brief visual digestion à la GG of London’s magnificent FRIEZE Art Fair – that for the first time presents FRIEZE MASTERS, the new […]

Mat Collishaw, Other Criteria

Nothing makes you forget you’re not in New Cross faster than strolling around Green Park in pastel evening light; your senses not being divided between avoiding mystery-puddles and crushing chicken bones underfoot. On an ordinary occasion, I would no doubt feel extremely estranged had I not been heading to Hirst’s (gallery, provokingly christened) Other Criteria […]

AMBUSH Design

THE COLLECTIVE EVOLUTION: VERBAL + YOON => ANTONIO MURPHY & ASTRO  => AMBUSH !!!! ‘ANYTHING GOES’ for the two creatives Verbal and Yoon from Tokyo who joined forces to start a design collective in 2002, launching their first jewelry line two years later, followed by the cutting-edge line AMBUSH – which experimentally uses different types of metals, […]
