“If the flowers in the paddy were spaced in equal intervals I could lie down in them and measure my height.” That was the simple, idyllic thought that led designer Norihiko Terayama to create what could very possibly be the single most stunning piece of stationary we have ever come across.
f,l,o,w,e,r,s is an acrylic ruler embedded with real flowers that were hand-picked and then dried by the designer himself. Using a pair of tweezers he then meticulously spaced them so that they are “blossoming” at exactly 1cm intervals.
Josh Kline, ‘Skittles’, 2014
Kline presents Skittles, an industrial refrigerator containing smoothies produced by the artist using unconventional and poetic combinations of ingredients including kale chips, squid ink, sneakers, phone bills, and pepper spray. Each smoothie stands as a portrait of a different contemporary lifestyle. When grouped together, they evoke a landscape of aspiration, taste, and – at times – deprivation in a metropolis like New York City.
Tonight is the perfect opportunity to see Teresita’s stunning new works and boogie with us as we celebrate our 15th year!
