In this edition you’ll find a Frida Kahlo inspired magazine cover, a flower-filled installation space, designer blankets, taxi-printed socks, downloadable icons, looots of music and more.

FOUR – Paintings from Lost in Reverie, Alexia Vogel‘s solo show on until 5 May at Barnard Gallery.

The fading images of old family photographs, mostly of her parents and siblings documenting a time and place before she was born, resulted in paintings evoking a strong sense of nostalgia, albeit of a fictitious nature. These expressions of a sentimental longing for a past of which the artist was not a part, of seemingly better times and places, culminated in a remarkably sensitive and beautiful body of work all the while threaded through with a discomforting tension between ‘the real and the invented’.

Read an interview with Alexia.
