With a passion for mobility and desire to challenge branded perception, German designer Florian Borkenhagen deconstructs, transforms and reconstructs everyday objects and provides them with a sophisticated value. TLmag caught up with the designer, whose work straddles the space between art and design.
TLmag Extended Print Editions
Now a year into his third curatorial “season” at La Verrière Hermès, TLmag caught up with French curator Guillaume Désanges to discuss the influences behind their latest exhibition ‘Musa Nuit’ – leading to a conversation about challenging dominant social and political structures and art’s role within them.
With her image as the cover for TLmag’s 31st print edition, we decided to take a stroll down memory lane and take another look at Amy Hilton’s ever more relevant reflections on how isolation and solitude are among the keys to gaining a sense of unrestrained creativity.
Playing with scale and contradiction, Pae White is unafraid to push the limits of what a material or tool can do. Her ability to capture fleeting moments like a puff of cigarette smoke or the reflection of shiny tinfoil within a woven surface challenges our perceptions and adds a bit of magic into our everyday lives.
Juhani Lemmett’s vast collection of glass and ceramics illustrates the rich heritage of design and craft in Finland and anyone asked where to catch an all-encompassing glimpse of the country’s contemporary design movement would list Helsinki’s, Gallery Lemmetti, as an essential port of call.
Since late last year, TLmag and Formafantasma have been working together to create our latest Spring/Summer print-edition. A lot has changed between now and then, but one thing is sure: we are entering a new era of looking at and making for the world around us.
BOZAR Brussels collaborated with Tate Liverpool to create a retrospective exhibition dedicated to American artist Keith Haring. Keith Haring was a unique presence in 1980s New York, playing a key role in his generation’s underground counterculture and creating an immediately recognisable style.
It’s no surprise that this Swedish artist has a background in both architecture and dance, as her handmade geometric shapes are studies in structural composition and movement. Bella talks to TLmag about her fascination with interfaces, the truth about intuition, and the similarities between yarn and smartphones.
Since founding London’s Vessel Gallery 20 years ago, Angel Monzon has become an expert on the contemporary glass-art scene, exhibiting and developing the work of a myriad glass artists. As a proud proponent of glass as a hand-worked skill, we speak to him about the developments he’s seen and the future he envisions for the craft.
For their final exhibition in their original location, mudac’s curators have teamed up to pay tribute to ‘their’ Guadard house by highlighting the most ordinary — and thus extraordinary — objects they have collected over the last twenty years.
Kati Laakso, Director of the Finnish Cultural Institute for the Benelux in Brussels, talks to TLmag about the Institute’s unique initiative, Together Alone, created after the spread of Covid-19 to support Finnish artists during the pandemic, and how she sees the artistic community changing in this new environment.
Using various textile techniques like knitting, embroidery and tufting, Paris-based textile artist Manon Daviet transposes her drawings into tapestries, creating what she calls “volume paintings”. Here, she talks TLmag through her multidisciplinary practice, finding inspiration in comic books and her embracing of mysticism in nature.
