TOKYO LANDSCAPE

Eye and sign, ideograms. Tokyo, capital of Japan. Tokyo,  the miracle of chaos, the restless pulsing organism. Tokyo, the spontaneous architectural lab. Its constant mutation, and its natural mental architectural body, made of muscles, lights, nerves. Tokyo, the ancient culture, the Empire. Tokyo Landscape, a project by Antonio Saba which accompanies the spectator with pictures, descriptions and a visual stimulus through the different aspects of the city: the most lively megalopolis on earth. A lot more than a guide, little less than a journey. Details »

SUGGESTED BY OLIVIA: W.H. AUDEN

Lullaby

Lay your sleeping head, my love,
Human on my faithless arm;
Time and fevers burn away
Individual beauty from
Thoughtful children, and the grave
Proves the child ephemeral:
But in my arms till break of day
Let the living creature lie,
Mortal, guilty, but to me
The entirely beautiful.

IN BED WITH:MAEVE STAM

The few green parrots who have remained in the park are soon leaving, reaching the south or the North Africa. As autumn is stretching its paws and winter is approaching, I figured out it’s getting cooler and cooler. I also realized we all need a cosy place to cuddle up.As we are human, (even if Marguerite Yourcenar once said that Love is a punishment and we are punished because we weren’t able to stay alone) we all need someone to stay with. In the end, we are social animals. We need to feel the heat of a cheek approaching to ours, a kiss on the lips, a caress, a warm embrace, we need to love and be loved, we need to nestle. It comes to my mind Ella Fitzgerald’s Fine Romance, (but with kisses, this time).

DAWN MELLOR

A  glorious Sant Martin’s School graduate,  maybe one of the the best English contemporary painters.  Dawn Mellor, class 1970,  is the example that painting is still a  complete way of expression. For the past twelve years, in fact, Mellor had been working (obsessively) on celebrities, trying to explore the territory of  grotesque and shocking, carrying the classical portrait to a new level. Violated, encrusted by graffiti, terrorized, distorted, mortified, celebs  lose their allure under aritst’s  hands and acquire new and deep meanings. Details »

TWO WORDS WTH ALBERTO GUGLIELMI

Isabella: What do you love and hate about photography?

Alberto: I pretty much love everything about it. Shooting negs one thing fascinated me. How that perfect moment was not visible to the photographer (mirror up, viewfinder blank), only until the photos was developed. That sort of mystery about the photo was a catch for me. It still is a bit with the digital world, but not as far…I did not like the dark room too much, but now we are in digital age. So that solves it. But it also creates the only thing that sometime I hate about the job. Hours and hours spent “developing” the photos. Pretty much the transition to digital age made the photographer take over the job of the developing lab. But don’t get me wrong, I like digital.

HöVDING, THE AIR HELMET

Innovation, safety and style.
Three words that perfectly describe Hövding.
The Hövding is an airbag for your head. Mounted in a bulky collar, which can be disguised as a stylish scarf, the bag explodes on when you crash and surrounds your head with an inflated hood. The air-helmet was designed by two swedish designers as a university thesis project. Probably it goes on sale next spring.

NEVER LET ME GO

Never Let Me Go has truly intriguing credits. The movie, directed by Mark Romanek, is a cinematographic transposition of Kazuo Ishiguro‘s acclaimed novel. Beach author and 28 Days Later/Sunshine screenwriter Alex Garland penned the adaptation for the big screen. As for Romanek, he is one of the most celebrated music videos director. He made videos for Michael Jackson, Beck, Nine Inch Nails, Madonna, Red Hot Chili Peppers among the others, and some of his works are in the permanent video collection of MoMA. After the indie thriller One Hour Photo (2002), Never Let Me Go is his second full-length feature film.

The movie is an emotional and dramatic thriller about a group of children who spent their childhood at a seemingly idyllic English boarding school, who as they “grow into young adults, they find that they have to come to terms with the strength of the love they feel for each other, while preparing themselves for the haunting reality that awaits them.” The film stars Carey Mulligan, Keira Knightley, Andrew Garfield in the leading roles. Defined as a sci-film with a soul, Never Let Me Go promises to be a poignant story of love, loss and hidden truths.

DAVID HOCKNEY

The most highly publicized British artist since the Second World War. Born in Bradford, England, in 1937. David Hockney was an art student at the Royal College of Art in London when he firstly tried his hand at abstraction, but found it barren. He then had a rapid self-discovery on both artistic and personal levels, coming to terms with his own sexuality, and at the same time searching for a style. Hockney’s ebullient personality soon made him well known, even outside the Royal College. He was part of the new Pop movement in Britain, and (apparently) as one of its leaders.

HERE AND THERE

“I think it should be very personal and passionate, if you lose the passion it’s better to do nothing. If you have no interest in creating then you should not do it; nobody is asking you to do it.” Nakako Hayashi.

Here and There‘ is one of my favourite publications. The editorial is NAKAKO BOOKS, and the  publisher is  Nieves .The publication is edited, curated and produced by Nakako Hayashi. She has been working for a long time in the publishing world, for several important publications. During that period, he met many interesting people with whom, for some reason, became impossible to publish traditional journals. He then decided to make his own publication called ‘Here and There’. In the publications appear  all the people he met throught out the years (mostly friends of Nakako, nowadays). Published issues are directly linked to Nakako’s concerns of the moment. The result is difficult to classify, the design is  fantastic, the designer is the awesome Kazunari Hattori. The published content is simple and personal. In all the numbers there is Elien Fleiss, a close friend of Nakako, who began her career as a curator of art exhibitions, and made her name in 1992 by publishing the inspirational Purple magazine with Olivier Zahm. Over the next ten years, in its various incantations, Purple Prose, Purple Fashion and Purple Sex have become collectables.

I here recommend reading this short interview to Nakako Hayashi with very inspiring answers for those who believe their own project is similar. HERE.

BOW-WOW TO WILLI DORNER AND LISA RASTL

Humans in odd formations and unusual locations. Photography and perspectives get truly twisted and combined. The body movement is here to the point of absurdity. Bodies and architectonical shapes combines with pictures. Geometric abstraction, where preconceived ideas prevent us from using what we have, differently. It’s austere and playful. It’s joyful. Let’s bow to Austrian art director  Willi Dorner and photographer Lisa Rastl.

Check The Bodies in Urban Spaces performances…maybe soon in your city.

THE KID IS BACK: HARMONY KORINE

Harmony Korine is one of the most provocative, independent and iconic director working today. He met photographer Larry Clark by chance, while skating in Washington Square Park, in New York, and  wrote for him the script of Kids (1995),  a groundbreaking film about 24 hours in the sex and drug filled lives of several Manhattan teenagers during the AIDS crisis. Kids, while controversial, jumpstarted Korine’s career. As a director, his varied body of work includes Gummo (1997), Julien Donkey-Boy (1999) and Trash Humpers (2009).

Now he is working on a short movie called God’s Joke. The film will be financed by crowd-funding through Cinema Reloaded, an interested project hosted by the International Film Festival Rotterdam.

Check it out and don’t miss your chance to become a co-producer!

OUR BROKEN GARDEN


Like the golden sea that names Our Broken Garden’s new album, their music is wide and deep, beautiful and mysterious, its thermal currents inviting you to dive in but with the potential to drag you under.

Golden Sea is a substantial step forward for the band – there’s more drama and rhythm this time around as if the golden sea was more restless and darker than its colour suggests. Grace and dread combine stunningly and seamlessly on Golden Sea as the members of Our Broken Garden lure the listener into their heady cocoon. (Bella Union)

TWO WORDS WITH FLO FOX

 

After calling her mobile phone twice, Flo gives me a Skype meeting. I’m unfortunately unprepared and I have no microphone and no camera but I can see and hear what she says. She’s sitting next to a woman who reads out loud what I write, while she answers aloud. She’s beautiful with her Silver grey hair and the headphone set. What follows is a subscription of the conversation we had..

Isabella: If I didn’t know you at all..and I’d ask you…who is Flo fox? what would you say?

Flo: A photographer, an advocate for the disabled, and continuing to work even though I am disabled.

Isabella: what does photography mean to you?

Flo: It’s like recording history, the minute I press that button, I know it’s there forever.

CUTTING THE EDGE: KNOTAN

Well, well,well. Ready to be tossed in a mud of impurity? This is Knotan. Rightly considered “the new king of snapshot” by Let Them Eat Cake magazine.

There’s a power behind his pictures.It’s a striking and mordant galore. You feel the erotism coming out, you blush and then you can even get the stomach ache. There’s a skinny humour in his shots, a skinny proportion of his knuckle body (that’s what Knotan means in Swedish). It’s not the ‘falky’ beautiful of perfect commercials, but it glows anyway. Don’t even think it’s Terry Richardsonesque. His, is an immaculate Scandinavian style. He, is an inconventional pioneer and he’ll shine bright because he is just wonderfully wild.

ALBERTO GUGLIELMI: SLEEKER THAN AVERAGE

 

I had the chance to stumble against this Roman photographer’s pictures. I can’t omit the fact that I almost died of envy when I stared at those sea-heaven-on-earth landscapes, those rich colors, the slow idea of movement, the happiness that oozes from the images, the beautiful portraits, the passion that you can feel with the use of colors.  As I got through  his biography, I read: ‘Born in Rome during the years of disco..’.

ESSENTIAL KILLING

A man wanders in a desert of snow. The man is an Afghan fugitive, maybe a Taliban, captured by American forces in Kabul, who finds himself transported to a nameless European country. He manages to escape into the vast frozen woodland, a world away from the desert home he knew, forced into extreme survival mode. Essential killing, by awarded Polish director Jerzy Skolimowski, is a provocative thriller, almost entirely without dialogue, where time and space are dilated. Skolimowski, director, scriptwriter, and actor, who had his artistic training with Andrzej Wajda and Roman Polanski, has always been a witness of two different worlds and cultures, constantly balanced between Eastern and Western culture. With Essential killing, he made a film about the struggle to survive and the primitive instincts which help to stay alive.

The movie received the Special Prize of the Jury at the Venice Film Festival and an intense Vincent Gallo in the role of the prisoner won the Coppa Volpi as best actor. Yes, he didn’t show up at the ceremony to receive the prize, but this is another story…

Coffee and Dolls

It was a storefront for a small-time numbers runner,
pretending to be some sort of grocery. Coffeemakers

Who was fooled. The boxes bleached in the sun,
the old guys sat inside on summer lawn chairs,
watching tv. The applause from the talk shows and game shows
