For Spring/Summer 2016 Haute Couture show presented in Paris last week, Viktor&Rolf further explored the notion of Wearable Art with a surreal merger of sculpture and clothing.
The collection, inspired by Cubism, consisted of a series of form where clothing and sculptural elements interacted with an increasing degree of complexity. The designs blur the boundaries between garment and sculpture, and question the relationship between wearer and clothing, sometimes overtaking the body and obscuring the face of the wearer.
The Snap Galleries present a collection of rare Sex Pistols photographs taken in London by Paris-based photographer Pierre Benain. The French photographer was introduced to Malcolm McLaren in the 1970s, and was asked to promote a Sex Pistols gig on the outskirt of Paris. The Sex Pistols played there on 3 September 1976 in front of a mixed crowd including the usual regular fans and the Bromley contingent including Siouxsie Sioux, Billy Idol and more. The artist became friend with the band and later took this opportunity to take personal shots of everyone, before the drama happened... This is an interesting exhibition with never-before-seen photos.
To celebrate 150 years of the publication of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, The British Library presents Alice in Wonderland an exhibition that explores the origins and fascination for the famous 1865 novel written by English author Lewis Carroll.
As we know, its narrative, colourful characters and imagery have been enormously influential in both popular culture and literature, and although the story has been adapated to various media, it continues to fascinate new generations of illustrators, authors and artists.
Lewis Carroll’s original manuscript with hand-drawn illustrations is on display in the exhibition which is quite stunning, alongside editions by Mervyn Peake, Ralph Steadman, Leonard Weisgard, Arthur Rackham, illustrations by Salvador Dali and other artists.
