As faithfully as ever, we’ve scoured the web for some beautiful new things to share with you for our weekly Oh Wow! round-up and as always, we had a lot of fun doing it! So…today we’re looking at some enchanting figures in dreamlike landscapes, portraits of fashion week models paired with scenes of the every day, and a psychadelic interpretation of Cape Town in the form of a hand-cut photographic collage.
ONE – Again and Again, a solo show by Nina Torr is opening on 30 October at In Toto Gallery.
“Again and Again takes the form of a cyclorama broken into several parts. The world follows the journeys of a number of figures during a brief moment in time. There are the yellow dogs who just can’t get any rest, poor things. There are empty landscapes that don’t quite know what to do with themselves. Sleeping whales glide past along with travelling salesmen and some very docile suns and moons. Most of the animals are retired, but they try to keep busy. Sometimes we get an idea of what goes on even further behind the scenes, where things may – or may not – even be happening. Torr documents her internal landscape; at times it presents itself as fully-formed images. More often than not, they take the form of hallucinatory landscapes filled with mental debris. We see things near and far at the same time, again and again.”
THREE – Some tracks from lentegeur, an electronic music producer originally from Pretoria. The vast nature of Cape Town, where he now resides, has directly influenced his personal style of fusing ambient soundscapes and electronica infused textures with trip hop and hip hop beats.
FOUR – Mungo and Jemima have just launched an online store, coinciding with the release of their SS14/15 Lookbook. Shot by Caroline McClelland and featuring a rather adorable miniature potbelly piglet named Ben, it showcases items from their upcoming summer ranges from designers like Good Clothing and Coppelia.
FIVE – A hand-cut photographic collage with painting and illustration created by Dylan Culhane for the cover of Hello Beautiful‘s upcoming album. “The final piece,” Dylan says, “is a psychadelic interpretation of Cape Town city that aims to emulate the frenetic yet rhythmic editing timeline of a producer composing a track on digital software.”
SEVEN – A playlist comprising of the artists performing at this month’s Park Acoustics.
EIGHT – Robyn’s Floral Bomb, a blooming new bag from Missibaba, celebrates the start of summer with a feast of layered blossoms in summer brights, gold, midnight blue and liquid black hues.
