Local accessory brand Pichulik collaborated with Italian perfumery Santa Maria Novella to create a rich, warm AW15 collection.

Pichulik AW15 Pietra Terra

 

Local accessory brand Pichulik just released their AW15 collection. With signature bold shapes and rich, warm colours this collection titled Pietra Terra is the result of a collaboration with Italian perfumery Santa Maria Novella. Owner and designer Katherine-Mary Pichulik has always been fascinated with Italy. Earlier this year Vogue Italia named Pichulik as a finalist in their Scouting for Africa Project, soon after she was accepted for an art residency in Florence which she’ll take up over June/July. She also met her hero Rosita Missoni at Design Indaba. Fate? We think so. The collaboration with Santa Maria Novella that followed was a natural fit.

 

Santa Maria Novella has been making artisanal perfumes in Florence for centuries. Katherine-Mary used their classic fragrances as points of departure for creating her AW15 range. “After an inspiring discussion with Michelle Knapp, who owns Santa Maria Novella in Cape Town, we began exploring their 13th century heritage. As we researched the Renaissance decadence of the architecture and frescoes, a rich royal palette began to emerge,” Katherine-Mary explains. She worked mostly with stones such as jade, serpentine, agate, black lace dream agate and blue dream agate and fittingly called this collection Pietra Terra. The beautiful campaign images shot by Kristin-Lee Moolman reflect the richness of 16th century Italy, Italian design as well as the art deco motifs as expressed in Italian West Africa. Shot on cliffs along Chapman’s Peak looking over the ocean and surrounded by rock and fynbos, these images also express Pichulik’s African roots.

With an academic background in art history and curation, Mari McFarlane is the perfect person to talk to about starting an art collection. She let us know how her own beautiful collection began, about waiting 8 years to own a Sam Nhlengethwa painting of goats, and left us with sound advice.

Mari McFarlane

 

Earlier this week we visited Mari McFarlane’s home overlooking the Cape Town citybowl where the artworks she has thoughtfully collected over the years are sparsely displayed, enjoying pride of place on white walls where they can breathe and be admired. Having recently moved home, a few of Mari’s pieces are yet to be framed or hung. She let us into her garage where we un-bubble-wrapped an unusual Pierneef and framed family treasures.

 

Similarly, Mari’s best advice is to not assume that what’s found on the walls of a gallery is all that’s available. Many galleries have artworks stored behind closed doors which you can and should inquire about. There might be something there that suits your budget.

 

Mari did a BA majoring in Psychology and Visual Art History at UCT from 2003-2005, returning in 2007 to do an Honours in Art History. Even with this academic background, the art world felt somewhat intimidating, and so it was only after working in education for some years that Mari decided to finally and inevitably do something art-related in 2013. In 2014 she completed the Curatorship Honours programme at Michaelis.

 

Firmly believing in art’s ability to encourage critical thinking and problem-solving, Mari is passionate about making art spaces accessible and urges South Africans from all walks of life and industry – and of all ages for that matter – to spend more time in art museums and galleries. Her Honours research project looked at the possibility of introducing a very young audience to these spaces. She won over a sceptical museum staff to facilitate a tour of the South African National Gallery for 3-6 year olds and their parents. Mari let us know about the experience, “What was particularly interesting was the reaction of the adults who accompanied their children. Because going to galleries is not a familiar experience to so many people in South Africa, adults often aren’t sure how to behave in the gallery; they feel intimidated or aren’t sure what to expect. One woman thanked me for teaching her about the art in a way that made sense to her, she said she would never have felt comfortable going into the gallery but now understood what to do and would go again with her child in future.”

 

We picked Mari’s brain further to find out more about starting a collection, and how she started hers – which includes eventually buying a painting of goats by Sam Nhlengethwa which she had spotted 8 years prior and had longed for ever since.

 

Mari McFarlane

Sam Nhlengethwa

 

What was the first piece you ever owned?

 

I bought a poster from the Tate in 2004 of a Ron Mueck piece that I had seen in the gallery, the framing definitely cost more than the poster but I love it – I still enjoy his work. His oversized or miniature sculptural works of people are so incredibly beautiful and really do have an effect on the viewer, they’re mesmerising and moving because of their realism and because of their very candid display of a certain emotion.

 

Mari Mcfarlane

Ron Mueck

 

For you, is buying art about what makes you happy, or about a good investment?

 

Well having what I consider to be beautiful works in my home makes me happy, but a good investment makes me happy too! As a young collector I’m not purchasing pieces for investment purposes, I’m buying what I love, but I suppose it is nice to collect pieces that could be sold without losing money on them…although I can’t imagine ever selling a work.

 

How would you describe your taste? Is there anything in particular you look for?

 

I research artists I’ve come across that have produced pieces that have caught my eye, I speak to gallerists, I use my gut mostly. I’m also married though; I have to consider my husband’s opinion and respect the fact the he has to live in our home as well so there is often compromise on certain works.

Do you have a favourite piece, and can you tell us about it?

 

They’re all my favourite, I love everything, but I suppose my favourite changes. Sometimes I see something new or have a new association or thought that goes with a particular image that enriches my understanding or feelings around it. Sometimes someone comes to our home who comments on a picture that allows me to look at it in a different way. Jabulani Dlamini’s “Kwa Mamokgorosi” from his exhibition ‘uMama’ was a tribute to mothers and looked at the challenges facing mothers in South African townships. It’s a work displayed in a home that’s so different to mine, but whoever displayed that piece also obviously enjoyed making their home beautiful. It’s a difficult work in some ways, but I feel it’s important.

 

Mari mcfarlane

Jabulani Dlamini’s “Kwa Mamokgorosi”

 

Can you please let us know how the Sam Nhlengethwa piece came to be yours? 

 

I walked in Goodman Gallery in 2006, Sam Nhlengethwa had an exhibition on, the space was filled with these wonderful pictures of goats! Goats grazing and walking and doing whatever it is that goats do in the veld. I loved it so much, I didn’t think I would ever be in a position to own one. But, eventually, 8 years later I could afford one of the prints. It was a great day!

 

What makes something collectible?

 

I don’t think there are any rules, unless it’s for investment purposes – if that’s the case then start following the auctions, read the Art Times, Art South Africa and subscribe to galleries’ mailing lists and speak to gallerists. They’re usually quite helpful and encourage young collectors. The more people there are collecting the more the market grows. It’s surely a good thing for everyone.

 

Mari Mcfarlane

 

What are you currently coveting?

 

One of Ndidi Emefiele’s portraits of women with glasses, I would definitely love one of those! Otherwise closer to home I did see a gorgeous thick, wet Georgina Gratrix oil in Michael Chandler’s Voorkamer that would look magnificent in my girls’ bedroom.

 

Who are the up-and-coming local artists you have your eye on? Who is making exciting things?

 

Laura Windvogel (Lady Skollie) is certainly making things exciting. I love that she’s marketing herself so well. She’s a young woman who is refreshing and seems to be tackling her relatively new career as an artist with a lot of passion. It’s really great to see.

 

Do you have any advice for someone looking to start their own collection?

 

Look, look and look some more, go to galleries, speak to people. Most artists and gallerists are passionate about art and enjoy sharing their passion, there isn’t a budget that is too small. Don’t be intimidated by the quite unfamiliar spaces of museums and galleries, the more they’re visited the less frightening they become. Galleries have big stores, speak honestly about your budget, there is a lot more behind the scenes that what is displayed on the walls.

 

 

Feeling inspired? Strauss Online’s online-only sale is a great place to start. The sale is up currently and runs until 8pm on the 20th of April. Expect to find artworks by names like Sam Nhlengethwa, Kudzanai Chiurai, Walter Battis, William Kentridge, David Goldblatt and Andy Warhol amongst many others.

Whether for print or bouncing across a screen, the characters created by Lung Animation are full of life.

The post Featured: Characters with Personality by Lung Animation appeared first on Between 10 and 5.

Cape Town based, boutique style animation studio Lung Animation is a well-established creative shop that specialises in both large and small scale jobs in the fields of animation, visual effects, and character design and development, to name just a few of their skills. With numerous years of experience in handling local and international projects both on set and behind the monitor, Lung has mastered balancing technical ability and artistic direction. Whether they’re imagining how enthusiastic eBucks would look and behave, designing a dejected devil or animating an over-buff cyclist showing off, the projects they’ve done are great examples of talent, creativity and attention to detail.

 

As they celebrate the launch of their new website, we asked founders Arri Reschke and Claudio Paven about Lung’s inception, the highs and lows they have faced since, and their exciting plans for the future.

 

What were you doing before Lung?

 

We met when we were both working at The Refinery. From there, we moved onto Black Ginger for a few years before we decided to open up Lung Animation.

 

How and why did you start the company?

 

We needed the freedom and to make our own rules. So we left on good terms and luckily, we managed to secure a big job as we started Lung which gave us the initial capital to set ourselves up.

 

Please introduce us to your team.

 

Jean is the voice, producer and the reason we are organised. Arri is our soft spoken all round talent and maker of lists, Claudio is not so good with lists but he seems to like node graphs, bicycles and humour, Alistair is our motion graphics expert and ever-expanding talent!

 

What’s the story behind the name?

 

We wanted a four letter word – no, not that word! The truth is that there happened to be a great song playing frequently on the radio called “Like a Lung’’ by the Swedish band, The Knife. We figured that there were two of us setting up the company, and every living creature has two lungs. We can also say cheesy things like we can breathe life into your projects…Nah. But in all honestly there was no particular reason – the name was short and looked good.

 

Lung Animation (1)Lung Animation (2)Lung Animation (5)

 

What have been some of the highlights and challenges of running an animation company in South Africa?

 

The industry is quite small so even as a small(ish) studio we get to do some pretty big projects which is always a highlight. We’ve had the privilege to work on some really exciting projects with some great national and international clients.

 

There are always daily challenges like shrinking budgets along with turnaround times as well as more studios all going for the same piece of pie. But, that said – the daily challenges keep us on our toes. One of the biggest challenges though is that it’s tricky to justify the value of a non-tangible product to clients as most people don’t understand what we do, but we like to keep it that way.

 

What advice would you give to someone looking to start their own creative business?

 

Rather make craft beer! Or, just think long and hard about going out on your own. You really, like really, need to work hard and try figure out where you can stand out. No use going in and doing the same thing as everybody else.

 

How do you stay inspired and where do you look to for fresh ideas?

 

We generally just can’t imagine doing anything else other than what we do now. We combine all the things we love in life, and incorporate it into our work. We take chances, try new things and love a challenge. People are important, and we love people so communication is key. We’re constantly researching, reading and investigating to try and stay ahead of the game! Plus, we just have fun.

 

What are you working on at the moment?

 

A few surprises…

 

Any exciting plans for the near future that you’d like to share?

 

We recently bought Nuke studio (cost us a kidney but we only need lungs) and we plan on making a little finishing suite that will be a little more client friendly than our current set up is. We’re also planning global domination…but that’s another interview.

Rebellious Blessed African

 

RBA, or Rebellious Blessed African, is a brand described as ‘progressive’ and ‘inclusive’ by founder Etienne Kankolongo. Besides specialising in street wear accessories like five panel caps, snapbacks, bucket hats and backpacks, it’s important to Etienne that the brand also be focussed on sending powerful messages to young Africans. RBA’s design philosophy is one of fusion, blending African symbols and patterns with fashion-forward fabrics to create finished products that are trendy and youthful. Most of their headgear incorporates fabrics like pleather, suede and light cork, to complement the ethnic cotton prints that form the foundation of all their products.

 

The latest RBA range is called “Human is Beautiful”, a title based on the brand’s positive outlook. About the thinking behind the range and lookbook, Etienne says that with less positive narratives, we can be overwhelmed by stories or experiences of racism, xenophobia, classism, homophobia and sexism. RBA would like to shed some light on the beauty humans are capable of, regardless of the small voice they may have amidst the dark.

 

The “Human is Beautiful” range is now available at www.rba13.com or by orders@rba13.com.

We're turning an eye towards nine of the local faces we’ve been seeing a lot of lately to show how different photographers capture different aspects of their personalities.

The post Same Face, Different Take | 9 Locals in Front of the Lens appeared first on Between 10 and 5.

Our focus on South African photography this month got us thinking about the people who often feature in photographs, so today we’re turning an eye towards some of the local faces we’ve been seeing a lot of lately. Taking nothing away from the talented people behind the camera, it’s far too easy to underestimate the role of those in front of it – especially when they make it look so effortless. The aim of collecting all these photos in one place as we’ve done here is to show the same faces in many different ways, an exploration of interpretation, if you will, as each photographer captures the subject in a new light and highlights a unique aspect of their personality.

A dreamy Capetonian beauty with piercing blue eyes, or “your semi-hot cousin” as she describes herself, Julia Campbell-Gillies is an art student and a model represented by Boss. For some of her work on the production side of things, have a look at the gorgeous ballet-inspired shoot she conceptualised for C-Heads magazine or Nicholas Coutts’ latest lookbook.

We’ve come to recognise Moonchild not only by her unique sound (that emerged out of a blend of classical, jazz, to hip hop, kwaito and electronic) but also by her signature blue locks and all-round zany style. After featuring in Fantasma’s ‘Shangri-La’ and the trippy music video that accompanied it, Moonchild wrapped up her debut solo album which is due for release soon and we’re sure we’ll be seeing a lot more of her as a result.

Over the past year we’ve seen Sanele Xaba all over. He’s featured in Justin Dingwall’s breathtaking fine art photographs, been dressed as a vision of contemporary African style in a collaborative editorial and he’s walked numerous fashion week runways. And there’s a lot more to come – represented by Boss, Sanele is soon making the move from Joburg to Cape Town to pursue modelling full time.

Bee Beardsworth is a model, artist and writer who also happens to have a pair of the most jealousy-inducing brows we’ve ever seen. Along with these she’s recently appeared in a gloriously old-school campaign shot by Lyall Coburn for The Joinery and in a fun shoot with photographer Caroline Mackintosh (and some ostriches) for This Is Junk. At the moment Bee is based in Sydney, where she’s represented by Jaz Daly Management.

Mermaid meets punk goes some way in describing Nastassja van der Merwe‘s edgy beauty; with her ever-changing hair, piercings and tattoos. Having studied at the Cape Peninsula University of Technology, Natassja loves fashion and is an aspiring designer – though she’s presently signed with Ice Models and is wholly focused on a career in modelling (until further notice, that is).

For at least one week before and after the release of Yannick Ilunga aka Petite Noir‘s debut EP The King Of Anxiety, it seemed as though the album cover (pictured below) was all we saw. It’s one of many striking images that the “Noirwave” musician has been the subject of in his career so far and it goes without saying it won’t be the last.

2014 marked an important milestone for Levi Strauss & Co. with the brand celebrating its 20th anniversary of operating in South Africa. Following the peaceful and fundamental democratic elections in 1994, Levi’s was one of the first global companies to re-enter the South African market.

 

To celebrate this occasion, Levi’s approached youth culture engagement specialists ANDPEOPLE to create a concept that would honour the people and stories that have shaped the business over its 20 years in this country. As part of their answer to this brief, the creative agency collaborated with filmmaker Richard Gregory to create the 20 Years Of Living In Levi’s documentary featuring past and present employees – some of who have been working there for all 20 years – as they share fond memories of time spent at the company. The documentary offers viewers a rare glimpse into a company of this kind as it navigates through two decades worth of rich film footage, photographs and brand campaigns. It highlights how the brand is both product- and people-orientated and serves as an ode to the iconic brand’s history in South Africa and the people who made it possible; a content piece that will ensure that the legacy of Levi Strauss & Co. lives on.

In a playful album of diptychs we look at the iconic 60s nightlife photography of Billy Monk next to images captured in the present day to find out how much things have changed, and how much they've stayed the same.

In the late 1960s Billy Monk worked as a bouncer for Catacombs Club where, 35mm Pentax camera in hand, he would regularly take candid snaps of the partygoers – many of them his friends. It may not have been his original intention to do so, but the catalogue he left behind provides us with a fascinating and intimate glimpse of Cape Town’s nightlife at the time.

 

As is often the case, Monk’s photographs were discovered 10 years after he stopped taking them when South African photographer Jac de Villiers found some of his old, dated contact sheets in a rented studio. He immediately realised the significance of what he’d uncovered and soon, an exhibition of Monk’s work – which proved to be the first of many – was held in Johannesburg in 1982.

 

Coming back to the present, in which we’re greeted with a new event album on Facebook every day, we were curious how Monk’s iconic images might have looked had he taken them in the 21st century. In an attempt to answer this we’ve put together a playful album of side-by-side comparisons which show just how much things have changed since the 60s and, how much they’ve stayed the same.
