Shin Murayama

p p p Shin Murayama was born in Niigata Japan in 1977. He has launched his clothing label Musk (a.k.a. Nose Job) in Japan, London and Hong Kong. In 2004, Murayama started his private line Wore Dance and opened a brick-and-mortar shop in Harajuku, called IsReal Store. This name was inspired by Yoko Ono's fictional art gallery "IsReal Gallery." In 2006 Murayama dissolved the IsReal brand and its store, and started working as a freelance designer involved in fashion brand planning. It was during this period that he also began making one-of-a-kind apparel and art pieces under the name "Library Police." In 2007 Murayama presided over the formation of The Library Police Group as a large number of new members joined and took part in the group's bedroom-themed art exhibition "The Royal House." His "Studded Sleeping Bag" piece was exhibited at Loveless, a fashion boutique in Tokyo's Aoyama district. In 2008 Murayama moved to the U.S., where he announced his mask series project "Valhalla," for the first time exhibiting his art under his own name. p

Olivier Pauwels

p p p ' A classical doll serves as the base figure for his creations. Every creation is cast in polyester and painted. Next recuperated materials and objects are attached to or implanted on their bodies. Some of the attributes on his creations move so that one day the army of puppets might jump into action. Since they were all made from recuperated material they are already considerably battered and therefore show no fear. They would carry out orders seamlessly when their creator commands them. One day, somewhere, perhaps. Olivier Pauwels creates fascinating cyberpuppets that carry the cruelties of former days, today and tomorrow inside them. His creations have to make spectators think. And yet Olivier Pauwels is not a doomsayer. He is trying to warn us of what might happen one day but still cherishes what is beautiful, inside and outside. ' (via Device Gallery) p

Fornasetti Vases

A plaster form of a vase created by Piero Fornasetti in the 50's, never went into production, was discovered in the cellar by his son Barnaba. This is the 'theme' used for the copious 'changes' that seem endless. All the members of this family have a natural inclination to disguise and an elegant humor. On show from February 26 to April 3, 2010 in the Spazio Fornasetti, Corso Matteotti 1/a in Milan. The itinerary exhibition will then travel to New York and be shown on May 15, 2010 at Barneys.'
