In the run-up to the Textiles Revealed exhibition in New York, organised by Belgium is Design as part of the New York Textile Month, we spoke at length with Lidewij Edelkoort, Dutch observer of trends and author of 2014’s “Anti-Fashion Manifesto”, a plea for a return to a more ethical, sustainable and supportive fashion industry.
Chef of the 2 Michelin-starred restaurant La Paix, as well as other establishments — including Black Pearls in Brussels Airport and Le Lieu in Genappe — David Martin is just as passionate about contemporary art as he is about cooking. We met the 2019 Chef of the Year at his restaurant, for a lively, frank exchange.
TLmag caught up with metal artist Adi Toch to talk about her fascination with sound, how it’s incorporated itself within her work, the essence of performativity embedded in her practice and creating objects that intentionally “misbehave”.
Inspired by western and non-western masters alike, visual artist Sanam Khatibi interrogates our personal and political power-structures through material and scenic juxtapositions in her paintings, embroidery, tapestries and ceramic sculptures. TLmag talks to the Belgian artist and reflects on the underlying personal attributes that influence her intuitive practice.
TLmagazine spoke to Alexander von Vegesack and Mathias Schwartz-Clauss about this unique institute for design, architecture, and nature.
