Vitamin T

Vitamin T

Threats and Textiles in Contemporary Art
Ever stepped into a neon hair cave? If you’ve already visited this year’s Venice Biennale you probably wouldn’t have missed the Icelandic pavilion by artist Shoplifter, who works with real and synthetic hair to address issues of identity and consumer culture. Not only since Christo and Jeanne-Claude famously wrapped distinguished buildings and tracks of land, the connection to fabrics is sewn into the identity of art. With Vitamin T. we've got a hairy extension of this into the contemporary, with sculptures, paintings and installations made from UV print, ropes, cotton, strips, frisson, hand tufted wool, used clothes, corn flour linen, silk tapestries, embroideries on organdies or recycled lobster rope - only some among the materials used by more than 100 contemporary artists compiled in the volume ‘Threats and Textiles in Contemporary Art’, the latest in Phaidon’s ‘Vitamin’ series, including Kimsooja, Sarah Lucas, Adrian Kiss and many more.

Pressing Matters #4 2018

Pressing Matters #4 2018

The fourth issue of Pressing Matters explores the broad reaches of the craft of printing. Visiting a collection of huge presses in Norway, a Czech studio mixing the methodological with the modern and conversing with Iranian printer (and paralympic athlete) Mohammad Barrangi Fashtami, plus presenting the brothers bringing attention to a near extinct animal with prints, these are some of Pressing Matters’ proposed projects taking us to new geographically and technically stretched limits. Meeting up with creative printers who conveniently use whole processes of printing to boost their work and enrich their personal lives. Interestingly, the making of this edition involves interactive field trips by the magazine's creator John Coe in which his two co-founders Jake Kennedy and Jo Hounsome plus twelve members of John’s family have participated.
