Marken

If you are Danish – or able to read it – we recommend this peculiar and humorous poem by Martin Glaz Seerup called “Marken” (The Field). The book’s text was originally installed in art galleries in Copenhagen and Los Angeles and was in 2010 published in its full length. ‘Marken’ is the voice in the book and ponders innocently & questioning about some very mundane and familiar issues.

“Marken har været velklædt det meste af sit liv, marken er stadig velklædt, altid iført noget passende, noget neutralt, noget afmålt, noget almindeligt, men altid med den lille ting, det dér ekstra, en sjov detalje, noget farvet eller noget arvet eller noget andet.”

“Marken tænker på ordet proprietær og på ordet prokurist, den ved ikke hvad de betyder.”

Birth of a book

Barbara Kasten

Influenced by The Bauhaus and Constructivism, Barbara Kasten explores modes of reorganizing the visual environment. With geometric shapes, mirrors, glass, lighting gels and a lighting crew recruited from the film industry, she creates abstract interpretations of interior spaces and architectural details. (via MOCP)

“The CONSTRUCTS series began as 8×10 Polaroids. The sculptural constructions used to create large scale photograms inspired studio installations. Referencing constructivism, the temporary theatrical tableau are made to be photographed in approximately 4 to 8 feet square spaces. Color, form and space are recorded with an 8×10 or 4×5 view camera.”

Alexander Tovborg – The Sacred & The Profane

We’ve been working on a book with painter Alexander Tovborg for a looooong time. It’s been an amazing, beautiful and inspiring journey and we’re proud to announce that it has now been completed, printed and published. The result is a stunning & uncompromised book showing a selected yet wide range of Alexander’s body of work featuring some profound and humorous texts by Frieze editor Jörg Heiser and curator/writer Tom Morton. Lubok Verlag is selling the book here.

5 POCKET JEANS

We are quite busy at LA – and one of our latest adventures was working with the new jeans campaign for Part Two. LA did the complete 5 POCKET JEANS visual identity and graphic design. Photographer Thomas Falmer had already taken the beautiful pictures and so we were asked to create and dress them in the graphic identity. We were just told that everything is a huge success and they are gaining a lot of attention … so we are happy!
