Crocheted Skeletal Figures Preserved Behind Glass by Caitlin McCormack

Caitlin McCormack (previously here and here) integrates mediums such as cotton string, vintage fabric, beaded objects, and other found materials into small, crocheted skeletons. The textile works are presented as preserved objects like one might find in a curio cabinet. McCormack draws a connection between her skeletal subject matter and the viewer’s interiority, using fitted glass boxes and wooden frames as protection from the exterior world. Her fourth solo exhibition at Paradigm Gallery in Philadelphia, See You All in Thereopens on February 22 and runs through April 13, 2019. You can see more of the artist’s work on her website and Instagram.

Reevaluating the gross misunderstanding of Sofia Coppola’s cinematic oeuvre

Marie Antoinette

Anna Backman Rogers is sipping a cup of tea in bed with her cat on her lap when we speak on the phone. By all accounts, it’s a relatively peaceful place from which to reflect on the origins and central arguments of her critically significant new book, Sofia Coppola: The Politics of Visual Pleasure. But Rogers, recently returned to Sweden, where she’s now based as Senior Lecturer in Feminism and Visual Culture at the University of Gothenburg, is by no means parring back on her…

Love in the time of OnlyFans

OnlyFans love

In his Dazed Voices column Chocolate-Cream Soldier, Otamere Goubadia reflects on life and love at the intersection of blackness and queerness.

Sexual revolutions (like the one we are undoubtedly living through right now) bring with them myriad pleasures. There are the literal pleasures, but there’s also the pleasure of change, of re-evaluation, of the knots of old kinks falling away to make way for exciting…

A New Book Explores the Wide Range of Charming Homemade Cat Ladders in Switzerland

Switzerland-based graphic designer and writer Brigitte Schuster chronicles the unique phenomenon of outdoor cat ladders in her forthcoming book, Swiss Cat Ladders. Focusing on examples in the city of Bern, Switzerland, Schuster shows how humans facilitate the comings and goings of their feline friends with a wide variety of exterior climbing structures affixed to residential buildings. Ranging from a sleek helix-type structure that’s available readymade, to more homegrown configurations that enlist tree stumps and mailboxes, the presented cat ladders allow these innately independent animals to come and go as they please. Some ladders give freedom to cats who reside on the upper stories of multi-family buildings, whereas others appear to be more suited for indulging a cat’s desire to climb. The photo-forward book, which is bilingual in English and German, also includes diagrams and explorations of the broader cultural meaning of the ladders. Swiss Cat Ladders is expected to print in September 2019. Preorders can be placed at the bottom of this web page. (via Present & Correct)
