Shadowing Figures



Francesca Woodman's photography embraces the ambiguity and curiosity of the strong reality of life. Fragmented and mysterious in its nature, her photographs depicts a strength of character, multiple emotions and cultural modernity of the hyper-individualistic woman. Rather than focusing so much on De-constructivism and taking instances out of context, Woodman evaluates the importance of superimposing the different levels of the real.


In other words, with each image comes a different, explicit slice of life -- a deeper look into her inner world.











Currently showing at SF Moma, Francesca Woodman's retrospective, Francesca Woodman 1958-1981, is a must see. The exhibition is accompanied by a beautiful catalog, which includes the images shown above. A delicate approach to self-study and theatrical representation of the female world.

Threadless


Check out this process based, behind the scenes video footage of Kvadrat Textile Field by Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec. For a solid month (Sept-Oct 2011), this temporary exhibition was showcased at Raphael Gallery at the Victoria & Albert Museum in London.

This installation piece entitled Textile Field is comprised of 13 shades of Kvadrat's Hallingdal fabric that are arranged in bands. As we can see, color is an essential aspect of the Bouroullecs' work, and Textile Field brings a totally different colour experience to the architectural space.
