WITH LOVE FROM NEW YORK: SHA RIBEIRO

With a hustle to photograph beauty at its simplest, Milan-based photographer Sha Ribeiro reflects the relation between sub-culture and music through a vague perspective. Particularly popular for an inextinguishable passion for portraits, the artist fascinates his audience with a raw point of view although that is barely a mere coincidence. It was through graffiti that Ribeiro was...

MONSIEUR CHYPRE BY ANTONIE ASSERAF AND RENE HABERMACHER

Starring in Monsieur Chypre are geographies; costumes, hair styling, make-up and even attitudes are shaped around them. The movie exhibits the relationship loop between Monsieur Cyphre and Mademoiselle Paris which is flavored with a hint of unfaithfulness, and it exposes Nicosia and Paris in line with their conflicting characteristics. A film by Antoine Asseraf and...

THE UNIVERSE OF ZHALA

Running into Zhala's awesome video and making some research about her, we couldn’t help but think, “Was Lykke Li a band?” One could actually list several similar cases that have created major mind-fuck on the audience. Take Sade for instance; it's both the band's and the singer's name, or Bon Iver; we personally still have...

PORNOGRAPHY WITH A TASTE: BARON MAGAZINE

Although it may seem like a hipster attempt to (re)interpret pornography, we somehow believe that Baron Magazine is something way beyond that. Self-positioned on vague coordinates -an indistinct line between art and porn-, Jonathan Baron the creator of the magazine describes it as a more creative version of pornography. "The Erotic Paperback Magazine" is the official tagline of...

BUILDING STORIES BY CHRIS WARE

“Building Stories”, a graphic novel by Chris Ware, will definitely remind you of movies that focus on multiple intersecting stories at the same time. A publication by Pantheon, the book -quite impressively- reminds the urban crowd over and over again that we are getting involved in and witnessing many other lives all at once, yet […]

INTERVIEW: CHAROTTE CARON

Looking at the works of French artist Charlotte Caron, no one could guess that established technique could come out of a young talent who’s just recently graduated. Her works are categorized in four; landscapes, portraits, vanities and anatomy; with the “Portraits” series being the one that strikes more attention nowadays with a combination of the photography […]

(RE)CONSTRUCTING MAGAZINE COVERS WITH AURELIEN JUNER

Young talents who boldly choose to try new materials instead of following paths that others have already laid before them should be appreciated. And when you have something that goes beyond a mere, experimental art school project, then it means that the artist deserves some close attention and a review of his works, over and […]

MARA HOFFMAN SS12 LOOKBOOK

It is extremely hard to be drop-dead stylish on the beach; we definitely do not approve the excessive use of accessories or hairstyles that actually look like as if you have escaped from your best friend’s wedding, so the only solution remaining is to find the utopian swimwear. For those who have yet to have […]

Sluiz is one of these places where you can actually see this passion and excitement, turning out to be a […]

CONTEMPORARY ART: THE GOOD, THE BAD AND THE CRAP

We’ve meant to say something about the unnecessary attribution of meanings to contemporary art ever since our visit to this show which was built around a gallon of spoilt milk. Having read Glen Coco’s awesome article on Vice UK, we doubted whether we should still do this or take the word of Glen Coco, but sticking with […]
