Gosha Levochkin’s Fanciful, Personal Worlds

Gosha Levochkin’s fanciful, strange worlds, often rendered in watercolor and gouache, carry an undercurrent of autobiography for the artist. The artist says “these mediums gives me the freedom to work with mistakes. I love the transparent feel that watercolor gives me and I love the opacity that gouache provides, over all making my work look like animation.” He was last featured on HiFructose.com as a solo artist here.

Vetements chooses heap of old clothes for window display

If there is one rule with Vetements, it is to always expect the unexpected. For its window at New York department store Saks, it chose to surprise once more – opting for what is simply a pile of old clothes. And in case you were wondering, no, they’re not Vetements.

More than just a gimmick, there is a charitable reason behind the concept. All of the clothing is either donated by the store’s employees or old stock and will be…

New Split-View Trash Sculptures by Bordalo II Combine Wood and Colorful Plastics Into Gigantic Animals

Bordalo II (previously) has created a series of bisected animals, colorful plastics forming one half of the creature while a combination of wood and metal created a muted mirror on the other side. In one piece the Portuguese artist created a turtle with legs that extend to the ground, appearing to crawl along the side of a a low wall in Moncton, Canada. Other works are more monumental, such as a rabbit that extends two stories in Vila Nova de Gaia, Portugal, and a raccoon that seems to dangle head first from a building in Pittsburgh.

The globally-placed installations are the newest evolution of his series Trash Animals, large public works that address the impact our carelessly tossed waste has on the environment around us. You can observe his process for collecting plastic and other waste, as well as follow more of his recent work, on Instagram.

NeXTones: il festival in una cava storica del Piemonte

NeXTones è sicuramente uno degli eventi più affascinanti del panorama musicale italiano, e il merito non è solo di una location meravigliosa e suggestiva, ma anche di una direzione artistica forte, interessante e perfetta per il contesto. NeXTones, come del resto suggerisce il titolo, esplora i suoni del futuro, interagendo anche con le arti visive.

Tones On The Stones

La cava storica di Trontano, a Verbania, ospiterà quest’anno la premiere di “Lumière III”, il live audio/video dell’artista tedesco Robert Henke – un’opera multimediale che esplora le potenzialità del laser: grazie ad un software sviluppato dall’artista stesso, avrà scena una vera e propria opera immersiva fra arti visive e sound design, che richiama i linguaggi ancestrali del cinema, fenomeni cinetici e colori. Un live da non perdere, perché Henke ha personalmente rimaneggiato il software per gli eventi open air.

Merchants, il duo composto da Bienoise aka Alberto Ricca e Davide Amici, presenteranno l’omonimo LP che esplora suoni nuovi, campioni e pulsazioni techno – in un live completamente analogico.

Presenterà il suo nuovo album anche Blanck Mass, il progetto di Benjamin John Power del duo Fuck Buttons: un live che rappresenterà la rabbia dell’artista verso la confusione contemporanea, attraverso ritmi incessanti e suoni industrial, in una climax che porterà al raggiungimento di una “estasi sensoriale limpida e celeste”.

Annunciata da poco anche la presenza di Vril, tedesco misterioso dell’etichetta Giegling, notato da un nome del calibro di Marcel Dettmann che gli ha dato spazio su Ostgut Ton. “Una ricerca del movimento costante, esplorando un’energia senza tregua.”

A chiudere, il dj set di Marco Shuttle, che esplorerà le diverse declinazioni della techno col suo piglio assolutamente sperimentale, ma non per questo contemplativo.

NeXTones è sabato 22 luglio alla Cava Storica di Trontano, a Verbania. Biglietti qui a partire da 18 euro.
