Stan Brakhage Essential Cinema at Anthology Film Archives

–01. AFA facade.

Words

In 1970, the Anthology Film Archives began a project to define the breadth of art in cinema. Although it was never completed, their Film Selection Committee did put together 110 programs comprising 330 films and these form the Essential Cinema Repertory collection. These programs are now regularly shown at the NYC film museum and prove to be quite a rare treat, chronicling the work of acknowledged classic filmmakers next to legends of the avant-garde, such as Kenneth Anger, Jordan Belson, Maya Deren and Stan Brakhage. Starting this weekend, Brakhage is the subject of a retrospective which includes a number of his '50s and '60s films and the program will be a welcome exhibition of one of the 20th centuries most innovative artists in the medium of celluloid.

Church's Ely Calf Jodphur

01

Image

–01. Rubber sole.

Words

I've highlighted several pairs of Church's Chelsea boots in the past but these are a more refined version, likely to look nice with a slim trouser. Made in Italy from calf leather, they feature a rubber sole, elastic side gores and a pull tab at the rear for a classic appearance that will never deteriorate in aesthetic appeal.

Dries Van Noten Skin Vinny Bomber

–01. 69% viscose, 31% silk.

Words

Dries Van Noten's Spring-Summer '15 collection features a variety of luxurious silks and fine patterns. The looks on the runway had an almost high-end sleepwear feel in terms of fabric and silhouette, accentuated by the way the garments moved. I mean that in the best way possible too. The Skin Vinny Bomber showcases this theme perfectly, while still being very wearable. The jacket is reversible and the geometric side might even edge out the plain black for me.

Viviane Sassen – Pikin Slee

Info

Institute of Contemporary Arts
The Mall
London SW1Y 5AH
February 3 – April 12, 2015

Words

A solo show by the Dutch photographer Viviane Sassen, entitled Pikin Slee, opened at the ICA in London earlier this month. The exhibition is primarily focused on a body of work from 2013 that she produced in the Surinamese village of the same name.

"My memories of Africa have always played a major role in my life and in my work. I guess that’s because they filled my very first consciousness. It’s in my spine, my blueprint so to speak. When I returned back from Kenya, all I knew was my life there, so Holland seemed very strange and new to me. Now that I’ve travelled so much in Africa over the past 12 years, my ideas about the continent and about myself in relation to it, have changed of course. But it’s a continuous journey, both in the inside world and the outside world. My work is a reflection of that journey."

Shaped Bottle Vase by Kana Tozuka

01

Image

–01. Matte glaze.

Words

Kana Tozuka, a Japanese potter based in Hokkaido, crafts a range of ceramics inspired by an image of winter and the old streets of her hometown, Otaru. Fired at high temperatures to achieve a glistening glaze, each of these vases is unique, varying slightly in size and shape, while its rich black-bronze colouring is reminiscent of an antique aged through the passage of time.

01. Faux Fur Coat.
02. Daniel Johnston Harrington.

Words

Supreme released their Spring-Summer '15 lookbook today, along with the usual collection preview. The offering includes the eclectic mix we've come to expect and appreciate. The New York-based brand is able to strike a balance between basketball jerseys and 'fur' coats, while also working with the likes of Daniel Johnston and Schott – not an easy footing to find, yet Supreme seem to do it smoothly season after season.
