MINNAPALMQVIST

MINNAPALMQVIST was set up in 2009 by Finnish born designer and artist Minna Palmqvist, and has since been nominated for the Mercedes Benz Young Fashion Industry Awards in Stockholm (2011), won the Who’s Next Young Designer Contest (2012) and been in the finals of the T-Force Fashion Awards in Guangzhou, China (2012). The concept of MINNAPALMQVIST, called Intimately Social, has its start point in the somewhat complicated clashes between the socially accepted body and the real fleshy bodies we inhabit. It is a conflict between what we wish for and what we are trying to hide. Where the garments emerge from intimate details and unwanted body shapes making their way into the world of fashion with no pardon. At the end of September 2012, MINNAPALMQVIST will open up her own webshop, with a range of her RTW collection alongside the ATELIER line where orders can be made from the studio in Stockholm.

Intimately Social 9.12 stresses the ambiguous feelings a woman can have towards her body as well as the pressure she can feel to fit into the expected norms body wise as well as socially. This collection walks a thin line between strength and decay; lightness and weight, façade and reality, al the while showcasing femininity that balances on the edge of a nervous breakdown. The signature materials of the brand, also present in the SS13 collection are soft and draped, and topped by naturally tanned Swedish reindeer leather quilted and shaped into a body like feel. The colour scale is soft and light and referring to the designer’s own skin tone, with apricot leather tones, beige and white.

BOCHNER BOETTI FONTANA

Art | September 23, 2020

Curated by Mel Bochner in collaboration with Magazzino Italian Art, This Special Exhibition Examines Parallel Artistic Movements in the 1960s and 1970s in the U.S. and Italy through the artwork of Bochner, Alighiero Boetti, and Lucio Fontana. Cold Spring, NY – August 24, 2020 – This fall, Magazzino Italian Art opens a special exhibition examining the formal, conceptual, and procedural affinities in the work of Mel Bochner, Alighiero Boetti, and Lucio Fontana. Curated by Bochner in collaboration with Magazzino, the exhibition marks the first presentation to consider the American artist’s extensive, yet overlooked, engagement with the practices of Fontana and Boetti, as well as with Italian art at large. Bochner Boetti Fontana offers, through the artist’s perspective, a number of resonances between his work and that of the Italian and Italian-Argentine artists: an exploration of systems, language, and materials; and a sense of irony and humor, often and especially shared by Arte Povera and Conceptualism, as all these works opened the work of art onto the space of display.

INTERVIEW: ELSA EGON

Interviews | September 21, 2020

"Art represents for me a 'ligne de vie'. I have been painting since my 15 years: since then, artistic practice has accompanied all my experiences as a girl, woman, mother. My only safety net in the most difficult situations, today represents the way to seek beauty in the objects and materials we use every day. I often work starting from a material that already carries a story in it, because it has been found, extracted and reused. It may perhaps be recognized by the people who had it in their hands. Somehow, it tells a collective story, piecing together, to establish bonds, but at the same time fixing my experiences." Read more
