Nina Beier at Metro Pictures

Info

Metro Pictures
519 West 24th Street
New York, NY 10011
April 16 – May 23, 2015

Words

Nina Beier has been one of my favourite artists since I saw her mind-blowing show at Yerba Buena Arts in San Francisco about five years ago. Her latest work is now on view at New York powerhouse Metro Pictures, and it might be her best showing yet. The explanations for the pieces are light, and really, there is no explanation necessary. That's not because they are self-explanatory, it's because they are so viscerally attractive that you won't need any sort of in-depth knowledge to appreciate them.

Sedate Stripe BD LS Long Shirt

01

Images

01. Elongated body.
02. Made in Japan.

Words

Even by Japanese standards, Sedate flies under the radar. They are part of an unofficial group of brands that seem to take inspiration from the 1980s club scene in New York and LA. This shirt is a prime example; it would fit seamlessly into any photograph taken at the Mudd Club.

Words

Beirut-born photographer Toufic Beyhum has been visiting the Brixton Masjid for the past year to capture the footwear worn by young Muslims for Friday prayers. The subsequent images have a beautifully contemporary feel, bringing a familiar sight for many Londoners to much a wider audience.

Made in Vienna at the Auböck workshop, these candle and incense holders are both versatile and beautiful. Functioning as one or the other depending on which way up you place them, they also work well as paperweights or small standalone sculptures. Offered in a set of three, each of the solid turned brass pieces has a slightly different finish.

Nike Cortez

01

Image

01. Suede and nylon.

Words

The Nike Cortez is a shoe that I've never had particularly strong feelings about. It's so tied to West Coast hip hop, and I've always associated more with the East – aesthetically and sonically rather than geographically. However, these simple reissues are about as good a version of the shoe as you could hope for, and seeing them recently had me thinking about embracing my own coast.
