Strathcona stockings

We absolutely adore the stockings from Strahcona by artist/designer Ryley O’Byrne. All her prints are original and she photographs, collages and draw them herself in her studio in Canada where they are also printed individually in limited quantity. See more about her and the whole collection here. Check out her tumblr. too = fun and inspiring universe.

Mark Manders

Fox/Mouse/Belt (1992) from artist Mark Manders. It looks like clay but it’s painted bronze. And a belt. Mark Manders is the 2013 contributor to the Dutch pavillion at the Venice Biennale, where the fox currently is on display.

The thoughts behind:
MM: Actually, this work originated from a series of three separate words. The word “fox” consists of a jumping fox that I froze in the middle of a leap. I caught it at a moment in time. I then used my belt to tie a mouse to the fox’s stomach, into which the mouse would normally disappear. With a simple gesture, I took this “unit,” which took place in mid-air, and set it down on the ground, whereby the sculpture sank even deeper into motionlessness. Consequently, the moment seems to occur in a continuous present or outside of time. The stylization creates an unbelievable standstill without a “before” or “after.” During this period, I was also fascinated by the fact that living creatures can disappear into other creatures as food, sometimes even when they’re still alive. At the same time, I wanted to create a sculpture in which a human act could be clearly distinguished. I ended up painting the sculpture to look like it was made of wet clay. For this reason, it exhibits an extreme, vulnerable nakedness, and it seems as if you could just press your fingers into it at any time. This is the only future moment that the sculpture seems to capture.” Read more here
