Traveling through the mind of child, all artworks by Shirley Elisabeth Loor

Traveling through the mind of child we can discover that is easy to be happy… we just have to pursuit it.

 

The Children’s Hour

How do you like to go up in a swing,
Up in the air so blue?
Oh, I do think it the pleasantest thing
Ever a child can do!

Up in the air and over the wall,
Till I can see so wide,
River and trees and cattle and all
Over the countryside–

Till I look down on the garden green,
Down on the roof so brown–
Up in the air I go flying again,
Up in the air and down!

Henry  Wadsworth Longfellow

Recode my Past and Future, Sunny Huang for Vertigine, travel issue

Bright mornings.

Days when I want so much I want nothing.

Just life and no more

This idea originates from my first visit to Milan, I felt a direct barrier lying in front of me, not only language, but also from everything else that stops me from blending in the surroundings. Then, I the thought of using literal to write on the photo to present my past background came to me. The literals used to seem familiar to me, but now bring me to lost; my work are portraits made of thousands of traditional Chinese characters to construct my personality and also recode my past and future.

I met Mustafa Sabbagh few months ago in Milan, we shared reflections
about the idea of travel , for him “a dialectic way to pass through our thoughts , a permanent change from one state to another, a searching of identity .”
Talk with him usually is an opportunity to broaden my horizon about art, looking away, embracing a vision defined according to the parameters of the artist’s and less according to the views of the art world on him.
I see in the art of Mustafa a sense of freedom, a way to be enchanted and indulge in the world.
Experiencing the body as landscape requires a strong sensitivity.
His work is a poetic passage, a mirror that elevates the ephemeral visible of bodies and objects into a permanent radical beauty.
Journeying through Mustafa photos it means pass through his gaze upon the world, through his seductive carnal black bodies , through a dramatic direction that intesifies pathos and pietas .
His intrusive and outrageous black , pervades and simultaneously removes barriers, petrifies the bodies , calling upon their surprising and astonishing aspects inside a spectacular setting.
An ethical monument to the beauty, a theatrical play, a dramatic transportation, make each work a scenario, a microcosm that encompasses a wider world, most disturbing of what we’re looking at.

If is possible or not to penetrate Sabbagh’s works , his photos , his installations and his videos create a short circuit of our conscience , a deep powerful attraction, an invitation to recognize themselves, to be reflected.

The extraordinary value of Mustafa ‘s opera is due to the way he reveals the body, digging incessantly into he interiority,  demystifying   the superficial appearance.

 On May 21  2016 in the monumental spaces of industrial archeology area  ZAC to the Cultural Shipyards alla Zisa in Palermo,  will open his first retrospective.

According to the artist’s idea, who also curated the exhibition, ZAC will be designed as a container of contemporary schizophrenia, a large closet living of his disorder and psychosis of its owner; a metaphor of disoriented humanity , schizophrenic on the concealment of his fears, which are here cataloged by Sabbagh. A humanity forgotten by his own humanity, the urgency of integration – individual and social – from Palermo, where Mustafa Sabbagh requires a social duty as a secular commandment: Do not forget.

Do not forget to Honor Black, a  photographic series that made him famous throughout the world,  a personal reflection and social challenge from  the individual dark side, that subverts the conventions through the multidimensionality of one # 000, and draws reinterpreting the history of art.

Do not forget Candido, an inedit  project, laical absolution granted by those who know how to share the blame through pure  eyes – and bloody hands – of a child, as in Das Unheimliche,  from Freudian memory, where is covered in blood the adult expectation respect to CD “different”.

Do not forget in the Chat Room, a love letter / symphony of pain from a poor Christ and a poor devil, and in Dark Room, rediscovery of innocence through a voyeuristic act.
Do not forget anthro_pop_gonia,an inedit  video installation ,  focused on the the  Ariadne’s thread , from the story of Greek mythology to the history of the contemporary vice.
Do not forget to Made in Italy © – Handle with care, cynical slap whispered questions, do not shout – as they should be the afoot of revolution. What is really a foreign body in an society  infected by slowness? Useless to try to forget him, in front of the seriality of a crime perpetrated by man to man, in the Black Sea installation – specially created  by the artist for Palermo – 09.2015: 3944.

“A schizophrenic does not forget; a schizophrenic accumulates “Sabbagh writes,” as in a multiple personality disorder, as in a mad zapping “.

Memories of the past and moments of the present by Susanne Sandgren

Memories of the past and moments of the present, woven together into one story. The tale of a piece that has followed numerous journeys and grazed the skin of many. Putting it on feels like going back in time. Reliving the reminiscences that aren’t yours, while creating new narra- tives to remember the next time the fabric covers your skin. Memories that someone else may sense in the future when it is their turn to promise untold stories that will infuse the interlacing threads of the fabric.

Wearig a piece of vintage clothing isn’t solely about the feeling of going back in time ina a physical aspect, but about sensing the storis that live within the fabric; the memories, the joy, the sadness and the love that spin arounf and embrace the threads surrounding your body as you let the piece encapsulate you.

A piece of vintage clothing is in essence much like a wanderer; moving restlessly from owner to owner, until it is so worn out and full of experiences and adventures, that it can no longer live on and withstand anther journey.
And all the momories will be washed away as the threads dissolve and its rich life eventually comes to and end.

SCARPA by PRIM

 SCARPA is the new collection by PRIM, designed by Michelle Elie

” I wanted to call it “SCARPA“, a long overdue personal homage to his inspiring oeuvre.

Sometimes inspiration you get from “things” that are overlooked for many years.
I experienced this with Carlo Scarpa, the Italian architect who lived in Venice and was buried in his most recognisable architectural work “The Brion Family Cemetery”. Somehow once in a while we rediscover an image, a sound, a quote, a face or an element to fuel an inspiring starting point of an entire collection.

The two circular windows of Scarpa ́s may be most iconic work is very present at the collection, e.g. the golden square shaped cuff with the triangle peak reflects his genius geometric play or “Veneto“, a wooden bag with it ́s hand carved wood side window resembles the facade of his renovated Foundation of Quierini Stampalia in Venice. The Scarpian details eludes in another handcrafted bag called “ATURO” which embraces glass on it ́s side to attract light and harmonise the crafted wooden frame of the bags.”

The collection is enterly produced in Spain with local artisans.

“It was a “Coup de Fou” traveling for the first time to Granada in search of inspiration and craftsmanship.
It was a natural bond with artist Juan Diaz Losada and Alberto Quiros the goldsmith I met on this journey who have their workshops in Granada, where they work precisely and contemplate on religious attire. Or Cecilo Reyes who carves cherry wood bags and selects in addition the most beautiful veins – a master for specialised wood carving canopies for “Virgenes & Christos” religious statues in Spain.

Guizhou, Winter 1990, Stockholm, Winter 2015

Winter 1990
My aunt shooted these photos in a small village, in China,called Guizhou.

Winter 2015, Stockholm, she Iopened the yellowed album.

The people in the photos look like living in the Peach-Blossom Source, described in this poem.

“The land was flat and spacious.
There were houses arranged in good order with fertile fields, beautiful ponds, bamboo groves, mulberry trees and paths crisscrossing the fields in all directions. The crowing of cocks and the barking of dogs were within everyone’s earshot.
In the fields the villagers were busy with farm work. Men and women were dressed like people outside. They all, old and young, appeared happy.”

25 years later, 9000 miles away
I weared their costumes to shoot these portraits
When I was walking in the snow, I feel like I was jumping into the cracks of time.
Or maybe this is just a travel in another time and another place.

One’s destination is never a place, but a new way of seeing things, Gözde Tekin artworks

 

Vertigine,

new issue , new topic,

travel as a state of mind.

We start with the touching and poetic narrative of Gözde Tekin artworks, between the world of art an fashion, feeding each others.

 

The story of this work starts with my mother’s embroideries, that I’ve been witnessing how one single thread can have such beautiful transformation. I wanted to use this technique to my old family photos to revive the people in the photos and make them travel to our pres- ent. The rest is just creating a dialogue between these ‘frames’ and ‘fashion’, and give them a unique voice.
