"Juicy Couture’s new fashion video directed by Inez van Lamsweerde & Vinoodh Matadin, Candice Swanepoel, Natasha Poly and Isabeli Fontana move to Blondie’s ‘Rapture’ while flaunting the bright palette and flirty silhouettes of Spring 2013."
Isabeli, Natasha, and Candice have all the rhythm in the new Juicy video choreographed by our Creative Movement Director Stephen Galloway. Can’t express how great the music choice is as well.
From the press release: 2902 Gallery presents new works Myth of the Flat Earth by John Clang at Art Stage Singapore. “When I say you are dreaming, so am I” is the project concept behind John Clang’s solo presentation at Art Stage Singapore 2013 open to the public from Jan 24th to 27th.
“I dreamed I was a butterfly, flitting around in the sky; then I awoke. Now I wonder: Am I a man who dreamt of being a butterfly, or am I a butterfly dreaming that I am a man?”
–Taoist philosopher Zhuangzi in “The Butterfly Dream” (庄周梦蝶)
Presenting at Art Stage Singapore 2013 (Booth: B4-10PS) is Clang’s 8 new photographic works and 1 single channel video.
John Clang is a Singaporean photographer and visual artist based in New York. Often inspired by the mundane and common place, his art is a rumination of his responses to daily encounters within a subtly changing environment.
In “When I say you are dreaming, so am I”, a delicate dialogue between shifting visions and perspectives, Clang explores the state of being awake and dreaming at the same time, and the resulting tension between illusion and reality.
On one hand, Myth of the Flat Earth examines the modern condition - the inescapable anxiety and pressure of falling in line and needing to stay ahead. On the other, Twilight Dreams of a Papilio Demoleus presents an emotive contemplation on possibilities that arise from the mutability of perception and reality in our lives.
Emerging from these vicissitudes, is a personal meditation on the universal theme of existence and identity. Perhaps differences among things are not absolute, and possibly we human beings, no doubt unique as individuals, are united by our entrapment in an eternal struggle with fantasies, reality, desires, and doubt.
Concurrently, a solo exhibition - “Being Together: Family & Portraits – Photographing with John Clang” will take place at the National Museum of Singapore, 23 Jan – 26 May 2013.
Jo Ratcliffe recently directed this video for Jimmy Choo’s capsule collection with Rob Pruitt. The collection reminds me a lot of… basically everything about Lisa Frank. In 1997, a period where I would undoubtedly sell my soul for a Lisa Frank puppy sticker, my mother gifted me a their digital timepiece with interchangeable straps. It is probably one of my favorite things ever, even up until now. It no longer shows the time, the most of the rainbows and clouds have faded on the purple plastic strap, and I lost all of the other straps. Yet I still have it alongside of my other not-nearly-as-awesome watches and it’ll always be my most treasured timepiece.
See below image of the Jimmy Choo x Rob Pruitt Leopard Print Pony Slippers with the Lisa Frank leopard folder. Can a nine-year old ask for a $700 accessory to go with his/her colorful waterfall unicorn backpack? Yes.
Song of the day is Sutphin Boulevard by Blood Orange. Have been listening to them all of last month and this month. Just makes me wanna jiggle little bit everywhere.
