Knights 2.0: Universal shielding

Knights 2.0: Universal shielding 

We`ve already written about 3D and monster masks, but modern PPE (personal protective equipment) is being improved. Now health workers offer us a more effective thing to protect the eyes, nose and mouth from Covid-19 infection — a face shield.

If we had been told six months ago that our editors would search for face shields in the browser search bar, we wouldn’t have believed it. But in the new reality, we forced. It seems that man is inevitably going back to the middle Ages, when the use of shields was a tool of protection. Of course, by the end of 2020, we don’t want to be like C-3PO. Of course.

Elements shifted minds

Face shields are reusable transparent screens that cover the face and help prevent infectious liquid (drops) from entering the eyes, nose and mouth. They are usually worn in combination with masks to enhance protection. Moreover, they can easily be produced by 3D printing if the necessary materials are available.w

Face shields protect owners much better from touching their faces and don`t interfere with communication, according to US infectious diseases physician and epidemiologist Michael Edmond. This is especially important for those professions that are closely related to people. Right now we will take off and land to the most incredible types of PPE. Take your multi-passport with you and let’s go!

AIR

Stewardesses around the world are already meeting passengers in a new uniform. So AirAsia`s one has already managed to call “chic and sporty” (just look at this elegant white scarf!). The new PPE uniform was designed by Los Angeles-based Filipino designer Puey Quiñones and was officially launched on a recent flight from Bangkok to Manila.

By the way, this “shape of the future “ was predicted by Emilio Pucci in 1965, when he designed the uniform for the crew of the American airline «Braniff Airlines». Of course, Pucci was inspired by space futurism and dreams of picnics on Mars, but not by viral fever. „Before that, most flight attendants were dressed as if they came on a bus from 1925,“ the fashion designer said.

Italian architects and designers MARGstudio, Alessio Casciano Design, Angeletti Ruzza have literally „inflated“ the shields for people who want to return to public post pandemic life. The developers hope that this air protection device won`t become a heavy burden on the face, and will allow a wearer to freely communicate/ eat in the usual way. We think restaurants should take note of this!

Well, some modern artists suggest using more air:

Max Siedentopf “How-To Survive A Deadly Global Virus”

San Kim “inflatable suite”

Alva Design Studio

THE EARTH

Here — on the earth — as elsewhere, there is a hot struggle thanks to PPE. Doctors note that the transparent visor that covers the face should be extended below the chin. And there should be no gap between the forehead and the front of the screen, so that no drops can get inside. Children’s dentists from sunny Spain perfectly manage to combine the pleasant with the useful. Look, even the Incredible Hulk came to the defense with COVID-19!

American designer Joe Doucet designed a shield that could be worn like a pair of sunglasses to make people really want to wear shields. It`s easy to use with integrated arms, so you are not an alien anymore.

For those who want to become an alien and spend a weekend outside of our Solar system, we recommend Shin Murayama with his masks series project „Valhalla“. Perhaps the artist was inspired by images of Japanese soldiers. But in these images we see the primal power and the face of a warrior doomed to Valhalla. Dedicated to fans of Rafiki and Hakuna Matata:

Art Digest: May 4—10

Obviously, the world is changing: the more unforeseen and large-scale the challenges are, the deeper transformation we can observe. And the art world reacts — some artists do (while thanking doctors all around the world or creating fortune cookie installations), some auctions do (successfully moving online, providing us with all that might be necessary for learning about the present series). Not to mention fantastic exhibitions that prove to be as good in the online-format as in the reality. Actually, it is reality — new reality we are facing and, frankly speaking, enjoying to some extent.

 

Félix González-Torres “Fortune Cookie Corner” to be exhibited across the globe 

The “Untitled” (Fortune Cookie Corner) by the American artist Félix González-Torres was presented in 1990 — now it might be a perfect time to re-enact the installation. Organized by Andrea Rosen and David Zwirner, the show will run from May 25 to July 5 in numerous locations simultaneously (just like it used to be in 1990) — however, this time it’s expected to be a largest-ever showing of González-Torres oeuvre. 

Félix González-Torres: “Above all else, it is about leaving a mark that I existed: I was here. I was hungry. I was defeated. I was happy. I was sad. I was in love. I was afraid. I was hopeful. I had an idea and I had a good purpose and that’s why I made works of art”.

A huge pile of fortune-cookies covering a circle of a gallery floor — that’s how the work looks. Visitors are welcome to take as many treats as they want, yet, the supply is never-ending as it’s being replenished. 1,000 people selected by Rosen and Zwirner will re-create the installation in their chosen place all around the world. Félix González-Torres would be pleased — to see his work being realized again two decades after it originated. And just on point — in the context of the overall situation, when people are chained to their flats, experiencing fear and hopelessness. The artist himself died in 1996, six years later the “Fortune Cookie Corner” was presented, the cause of death was HIV infection. The Sculptor of Love and Loss (as the famous NY Times baptized him in the news of his death) created several series of works that were meant “to unite”, including his “Billboard” works (1991) and “Candy” project (1991), dedicated to the artist’s boyfriend, Ross Laycock, who died of AIDS in 1991. A 175-pound pile of candies making up the installation resembled the joint weight of the unhappy couple. What for the re-enactment of “Fortune Cookie Corner”, by the end of the exhibition the cookies will no longer be considered to be González-Torres work, as the project focuses on the regeneration of the concept, which is valuable in this regard. 

Frieze Viewing Room, a new online-project by Frieze New York opening May 8—15

Though cancelled offline, Frieze New York Art Fair takes place online from May 8—15. A specially created digital initiative Frieze Viewing Room will enable visitors to get a proper look at all major works by established and emerging artists in the virtual space. There is also an invitation-only Preview which runs on May 6—7. 

Just amazing — over 200 galleries participating (each accessible in its’ own virtual viewing room space). The digital edition of Frieze might be handy — it claims to have a search engine which makes it easier for visitors to navigate among the different categories such as artists, medium, price and others. The curated program acclaimed for Frieze New York 2020 also sets the tone for Frieze Viewing Room, dividing the artworks into thematic sections. Thus, if you have an eye for Latin American art, take a look at “Diálogos”, while Frame section might be of interest to those who enjoy discovering new, promising galleries in the vastness of the art world. To explore Frieze Viewing Room, don’t forget to register for the event.

BP Portrait Award announced its’ winners 

The BP Portrait Award is probably the most prestigious international portrait competition. On May 5 this year’s prize winners were announced on the contest website. And the Award goes to: Thai artist Jiab Prachakul for “Night Walk” (first prize), Russian artist Sergey Svetlakov for “Portrait of Denis: Actor, Juggler and Fashion Model” (second prize), and English artist Michael Youds for “Labour of Love” (third prize). Dutchman Egbert Vincent Modderman who presented the work “Restless” was honored with the BP Young Artist Award

The BP Portrait Award as we know it today has been running annually for 31 years. In 1989 it replaced its’ predecessor John Player Portrait Award that, in turn, existed between 1980—1989. The thing is that today the Award is organized by the two authoritative structures — the National Portrait Gallery (London) and BP oil and gas company, both influencing the most important decisions that are taken within the frame of the contest, including the judging procedure. However, the public (the participating artists not excluded) has recently opposed to the National Portrait Gallery collaboration with BP, claiming the latter exacerbates the climate crisis and doesn’t respect human rights. For the first time this year BP representatives didn’t judge the contestants, which caused a great resonance, yet, the company continues to support the Award. 

Banksy dedicates his new artwork to hospital workers 

A new artwork by the famous British street artist Banksy has been found on the wall of Southampton General Hospital. The painting depicts a young boy playing with an NHS nurse model figure (instead of paying attention to those of Spiderman and Batman that have been put aside). The note left by the artist seems to be a perfect comment on the work:

Banksy: “Thanks for all you’re doing. I hope this brightens the place up a bit, even if it’s only black and white.“

It’s a large 1m2 monochrome painting, now hanging in the foyer of the hospital, near the emergency department. The only colored element in the picture is the Red Cross emblem which is to be found on the apron of the toy nurse. It seems like Banksy has chosen a new hero of the following decade — the one who is ready to undertake the mission of rescuing the world. Now you can try imagining the reaction of the hospital staff discovering the gift by Banksy! (on the video below). The painting will be on view until the autumn, when it will be auctioned to raise money for the NHS.

T-shirt by Takashi Murakami raised $1 million for COVID-19 relief

“The Warhol of Japan” famous artist Takashi Murakami has decided to turn his outrageous income for the benefit of the society. In collaboration with the streetwear brand Supreme the artist created a T-shirt, the sale of which has raised about $1 million in funds for COVID-19 relief efforts. The price of a single item is $60. The money raised will be donated to the Help USA non-profit organization that provides support for individuals facing homelessness and poverty. 

Putting one’s name to a product which is meant to raise money for charitable purposes is a common practice for artists. While the new T-Shirt created in collaboration with Supreme doesn’t really represent the character of Murakami’s oeuvre, it’s really worth getting acquainted with his art, if you haven’t already. Having majored in Nihonga, the traditional Japanese painting technique, Takashi Murakami soaked up the diversity of Japanese culture and stormed the world of contemporary art, being determined to change it. Takashi Murakami is famous for blurring the boundaries between high and low arts, namely producing his works in large numbers at the empire factory Kaikai Kiki Co, while at the same time endowing each with his own vision and philosophy. My Lonesome Cowboy, Mr. DOB, Miss ko², and other characters created by the artist, disclose a lot about the Asian mindset and the local cultural tradition, though looking showy, modern, and commercially attractive.  

The Fondation Cartier digitized a few spectacular projects 

While the Fondation is still closed for visitors, it has announced the digital release of some interesting content on the website. An exhibition by Brazilian photographer Claudia Andujar, a sound installation by the famous bioacoustician Bernie Krause, and a film, following up the past exhibition “Trees” (2019) are already available for exploring.

The digital getaway, prepared by the Fondation Cartier looks (and sounds) exquisite. The exhibition by Claudia Andujar was open in the end of January, but didn’t last for long. Now we have an opportunity to learn more about the life and art of the female photographer who was the first to photograph the Amazonian Indians called Yanomami, having moved to Brazil after her family had died during the Holocaust. 

If you enjoy discovering the world by ear, don’t miss Bernie Krause unique sound map, which is made up of birdsongs recorded in different parts of the planet. For those who saw the exhibition “Trees” last year, it might be interesting to watch the film “Mon Arbre” which has been produced as a supplement to the show.

Hide`n`seek with COVID-19

Hide`n`seek with COVID-19

C is the most popular letter of the Latin alphabet during the pandemic. Not in the case of adding more “cereals” on breakfast or doing “crunches” exercises all day long. But…well, maybe. Self-isolation has forced people to do things they didn’t even think about a couple of months ago. For example, watch the movie „100 Dinge“ and get rid of garbage in the house and in your mind.

The lifestyle has changed. But one thing unites us — masks (from Instagram as well). Today, fabric masks are the most affordable type of protection against COVID-19 attacks.

But what about shame? For example, in Sweden — where there was no quarantine yet — even doctors do not wear masks! The refusal is explained by the unwillingness to cause panic among the citizens. The wearer attracts too much unwanted attention and people automatically think that there is an infected person next to them. But not for the Czech Republic, where the police issue a fine of 3 million kronor ($1.2 million) for the absence of a mask. We are not in there, but seems scary.

Super care from a supermodel

By the way, Karolina teams up with Billie Bloom’s founder, Ashley Liemer to create the #MasksForAll project to produce and donate sustainable NON-MEDICAL cloth masks. They are organic cotton and can be washed in high heat for reuse. Be sure that 5 different sizes ( from toddler to adult) and clear designs makes your choice free. You can also buy identical masks with your child to know exactly where there is a lioness and her cub.

Use face ID with mask

Well, if you dreamed of having an Immortal Joe’s mask from “ Mad max”, now is the time. We prefer more delicate one`s. Sorry. But, of course, with a pinch of creativity. Take a hint:

Artist Danielle Baskin has set up a Resting Risk Face company, that will print 2D user`s photo on a N95 mask and create a 3D-contoured variation. So person can use facial recognition technology while wearing them. Cool, right? At the same time, you are you even when you cover half of your face. Well, or not you exactly … It’s all about the mood. Plus, people are more sociable when they see the other person’s mouth. Weird, we know.

For example, Danielle decided to try out the role of the famous meme and wearing a Hide The Pain Harold face mask.

Moreover, Danielle made a reservation site for her project. However, there are no masks on sale in case she is still working on them. But by specifying your contacts, you will be notified of the upcoming launch. So stay tuned! So stay tune!

Twin mask

Student Ashley Lawrence, 21 y.o., initiated the creation of a fabric mask for deaf-mute people so they could understand each other while being protected.

On a GoFundMe page she told she plans to distribute these masks to anyone who needs one, whether they are currently sick or not. We are currently sending these out free of charge. It`s free. To order one of Lawrence’s masks, reach out to her at dhhmaskproject@gmail.com

“GoFundMe as a way to offset the costs of materials, shipping, etc. Any money we raise that is not used directly for these masks at the end of the crisis will be donated to Hands & Voices. Hands & Voices is a non-profit, parent-driven organization dedicated to supporting families of children who are deaf or hard of hearing.”

Oral art

Icelandic designer Ýrúrarí Jóhannsdóttir made an unconventional version of knitted masks. According to her, this “intimidating” design will help better maintain social distance. Stay away from monsters! Roar!

With her provocative works, Yrúrarí cancels all the prohibitions that society dictates to us during a period of global panic. Want to open your mouth? Show your language? Smile with all your teeth? Now we have a chance to do it, even under the mask! No one canceled self-expression in the quarantine.

Moreover, these «hand knitting figurative fun pieces,» she said, «illustrating the everyday three dimensional space.»

For the kit Ýrúrarí created a headband and made a complete done. We loved it!

Be brave and safe,

BEING ON LOCKDOWN. How to find inspiration in Everyday objects ? Marcel Duchamp, Robert Rauschenberg and Meret Oppenheim

BEING ON LOCKDOWN. How to find inspiration in Everyday objects ? Marcel Duchamp, Robert Rauschenberg and Meret Oppenheim

How can you be inspired when you became a prisoner of your own apartment due to external reasons? How to keep sanity and сontinue to create?

In this article, we will show you ways to find inspiration in everyday objects. Tutorial by Marcel Duchamp, Robert Rauschenberg and Meret Oppenheim on how to give a second life to such simple things as a kitchen stool, bed or even a teacup.   

Marcel Duchamp was Dada’s father, a movement that challenged long-standing speculations regarding what art was supposed to be and the manner in which it should be created. Searching for an alternative to the representation of objects in color, Duchamp started to represent the objects themselves as an art. He has chosen mass, economically available, and frequently utilitarian objects, naming them as art. „Readiness,“ as he referred to it, violated the longstanding notion of the role of the artist as a skilful creator of unique handcrafted objects. Rather, Duchamp argued: „An ordinary object [could] be raised to the dignity of a work of art by the simple choice of the artist“.  

“In 1913,” recalled Marcel Duchamp, “I had the happy idea to fasten a bicycle wheel to a kitchen stool and watch it turn.”

The bicycle wheel, therefore, is the first of Duchamp’s Readymades (sometimes produced or mass produced) to be chosen by the artist and labeled as a work of art. 

To make In Advance of the Broken Arm, Marcel Duchamp has chosen a snow shovel, hung it on the ceiling in his art studio, and named it art.

Marcel Duchamp „bicyclewheel“

Robert Rauschenberg “In bed” (1955)

Marcel Duchamp „In Advance of the Broken Arm“

Rauschenberg (1925-2008) was  blurring the distinction between the object that exists in the world and the object as a work of art. 

In its iconic “Combinations“. (1954-64) he combined the materials of artistic creation with conventional things, said: „I consider the text of the newspaper, the details of photography, the seam in the baseball and the threads in the light bulb fundamental to painting, as a brush stroke or enamel drop of paint. „

“In bed” (1955), for instance, he wrapped a huge wallboard with a cushion and a patchwork blanket, then marked it with graphite scribbles and fluffy paint hinges.

The artist Meret Oppenheim (1913-1985) gained a position in a surrealist and male-dominated movement, the members of which mostly considered women as subjects and muses for their paintings. 

To make Object, she wrapped a white decorum teacup, spoon, and saucer in the fur of a gazelle, making it weird, strong, masculine and even repulsive. It seems that this cup telling us that life is not what it looks like.

Art Digest: 26 April - 03 May

What a strange spring we have this year — meanwhile it’s the first day of May. Despite all the difficulties, however, there is still a lot going on in the world of art & photography. Some galleries provide us with a full perspective on the shows running, while others let a couple of reporters get a sneak peak of what was being carefully prepared, but didn’t see its’ viewer yet (we all hope, it will one day). Find a selection of recent exhibitions, art events, and premieres below.

Aubrey Beardsley’s retrospective at Tate Modern

Find out more about the life and works of the late Victorian era artist at his retrospective at Tate Modern. Joining the 7-minute exhibition tour run by Tate curators Caroline Corbeau-Parsons and Alice Insley, you will see the spacious solution of the show as well as some of the works presented, all in the right mood. A room-to-room guide posted on the Tate website will help you to get a better understanding of the nature of Aubrey’s art through the artist’s biography.

A real dandy aesthete and a smooth provocateur, Aubrey Beardsley knew how to shock the respectable English audience at the end of the 19th century. Nevertheless, he kept juggling the line between refinement and eroticism giving no excuse to question his genius. The most surprising about him, however, is that Aubrey Beardsley created all his artworks in the span of just 7 years (1891—1898) dying from tuberculosis at the age of 25. His exquisite illustrations, drawings, and cover designs done in the run-up to the new century, such as Salome and Mademoiselle de Maupin share with us some top notes of a fin de siecle fragrance.

Helmut Newton online exhibition at his 100th anniversary 

Take a digital tour of “Helmut Newton 100” exhibition provided by a nice Sussex gallery, commemorating the artist’s 100th anniversary.

The legendary photographer would have turned 100 in 2020, had he been a centenarian. Though black and white, his photographs looked thrilling and certainly brave for its’ time (and even still maybe). Portraits of celebrities, fantasies lived out and curious close-up shots taken throughout the second half of the 20th century influenced the history of photography a lot. Newlands House, a new gallery space not far from London, offers an opportunity to enjoy the works by the artist online — while the show keeps being closed for the visitors, the gallery released a digital tour of INSIDE HELMUT NEWTON 100 just yesterday. It’s a nice way to see the Newlands House charming space as well.

Peeking at Met Show 2020 (though postponed)

Though the Costume Institute’s show and Met Ball 2020 have been postponed, we can still have a look backstage — some of the journalists were let in and allowed to take photos of the exhibition. A detailed, to the extent possible, coverage by Vogue might be good news for all fashion lovers. 

This year the Metropolitan Museum of Art is celebrating the 150th anniversary. The Costume Institute’s new show “About Time: Fashion and Duration” curated by Andrew Bolton was meant to celebrate the solemn occasion by providing a retrospective view of its history. The idea of the exhibition was to reveal the connection between the nature of fashion and time. Thus, the history of fashion from 1870 to 2020 has been explored with some curious patterns emerging. How Victoriana inspired the famous Japanese designer Yohji Yamamoto to add some deconstructivist elements to his collections, where the balletic proportions in Christian Lacroix evening gowns came from — close-ups from the exhibition done by Annie Leibovitz will give a good hint on those and many other issues.

Paris Photo Exhibition Catalog online 

While there is still some time before the new dates of Paris Photo 2020 are announced (the art fair didn’t take place from April 2—5 as planned), collectors can start looking out for what’s on show. Here is the exhibition catalogue prepared carefully in advance by the organizers. 

Paris Photo is the world’s largest art fair dedicated to the medium of photography. This year the exhibition gathers 126 galleries and 47 publishers from 24 countries. In the Main Section you will find works by such masters of the field as Laszlo Moholy-Nagy and Imogen Cunningham and Dora Maar and Charles Nègre represented by different galleries, there also 15 solo shows on view. In total, there are more than 1,200 photoworks to enjoy and maybe buy. Caution: the public access to the catalogue has been provided for the time limited, until it’s clear when the exhibition takes place.

Fashion-forward masks by two Bahraini entrepreneurs 

Good news from the field — people from all over the world don’t lose hope in the changing times and keep on coming up with some encouraging new ideas. Two Bahrainis created a fascinating design of anti-COVID masks inspired by Gulf culture and including some traditional symbols.

Entrepreneurs Noor Khamdan and Nada Alawi teamed up to create a colorful happiness boost which is also a necessary accessory at the present time. „With masks being mandatory… you can’t tell someone’s feelings, you can’t tell if they’re smiling at you. At least, this is a way to tell someone’s personality when they have colour on their face“ — commented Nada Alawi on the outstanding design. A set of three gift-wrapped masks is reported to cost about 52 dollars, 25% of the proceeds will go to charity.

A full-dimensional video guide at “Atelier E.B: Passer-by” exhibition 

The exhibition “Atelier E.B: Passer-by” at Garage Museum of Contemporary Art in Moscow would have been closed on May 10 — since we are not going to see the project live, the museum has launched a 360° digital tour which is available on the website. 

A brief introduction into the story: designer Beca Lipscombe and artist Lucy McKenzie partnered to launch a fashion label “Atelier E.B” based on local and exploitation-free manufacturing in 2007. The label does not only produce clothes, but also takes part in gallery exhibitions and cultural researches. This time the project by Lipscombe and McKenzie has been involved into the so-called exhibition “Atelier E.B: Passer-by” which consists of the exploration of such fields as display and distribution, including fairs, expos, department stores, and other forms being popular in the countries of the former Soviet Bloc. A high quality 360° tour enables to examine the exhibition closely, additional materials such as video interview with the founder of Russian fashion journalism Lidia Orlova is available as a part of the Garage Field Research program.

The recently held Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Russia makes it clear that online-format can be a success (taking into account the present circumstances). Watching broadcasts of fashion events and art exhibitions you support all the people who stay behind them, having put much effort into preparing the show. Join the webcast on May 5—6 and stay with the Estonian designers!

A live online conference with the legendary Art Newspaper 

Spending the weekend discussing the future of museums within the context of technological evolution — that’s what the Art Newspaper Youtube channel is ready to offer you in the 3 coming days.The three, 80-minute, online discussions which are to take place on May 1—3 will focus on such topics as preservation of cultural heritage, role of the museum and digitally produced knowledge in the society of the future, constantly shaped by the new technologies.

The story is becoming relevant in the light of the last events and the regime of self-isolation. It is  the story about the girl who is prisoned alone at home and who misses the ocean so bad. But the only thing she has is a toy blue whale that she spends all her time with and that reminds her the ocean a lot.
