Fresh from Japan, Sushi Socks are the hot (or is that cold) new thing in cosy footwear. Hand-rolled to look just like their tasty namesakes, each pair of these fun socks is woven in the colours of classic sushi. Choose from Shrimp, Octopus, Salmon, Red Caviar, Tuna and Mazasushi (Trout apparently)… or dine out on all of them.  photo Screen-11_f924be78-287a-4911-91fa-040fd8e94b24_grande_zps47cde75f.jpg  photo Screen-3_95302bb3-8e43-4a11-a39d-026e5e47f68e_grande_zps0aba1609.jpg

With his often elaborately produced works he puts the processes of daily life in unusual relationships towards each other. He incorporates light, sound and smell within his installations thereby generating images of poetic power. His installation of a hanging car tire rotating in vain and rubbing against the wall without being able to get away, became renowned in 2005. In doing so the tire abrades and spreads a typical pungent odor. He dedicated his first big solo exhibition 2012 in Berlin to the central theme of the forest. In the installation „Forst (forest)“ five upside down hanging trees which rotate slowly occupy the whole of the ten meter high exhibition space. In the same year Michael Sailstorfer was awarded the Vattenfall Contemporary 2012.

A Portrait of Crufts by Martin Usborne

 photo Crufts_21_zpsed3daf69.jpg  photo Crufts_07_zps6c31d58c.jpg  photo Crufts_19_zps008ac147.jpg Martin’s key interest is man’s relationship to (other) animals. Although his imagery is sometimes dark – capturing the way in which we silence, control or distance ourselves from other animals – his pictures strive for a subtle humour. Martin often undertakes editorial or commercial commissions and his work is regularly featured in international magazines and has been seen in group and solo shows around the world as well as in the National Portrait Gallery London. He has had four books published. More here.  photo Crufts_13_zpsd613683b.jpg  photo Crufts_15_zps921faaed.jpg
