THE AGE OF INNOCENCE BY ELIZABETH PEYTON

Nieves Books is publishing a small volume by leading contemporary painter Elizabeth Peyton entitled The Age of Innocence from the early 20th century novel of the same name by Edith Wharton. It describes the claustrophobic, repressed, hypocritical atmosphere of New York society in the 1870′s. In the novel passion is shown as the force that would make that highly ritualized world implode.

JACQUELINE HASSINIK EXHIBITION IN LONDON

From September 13th to October 20th, at The Wapping Project / Bankside — London (UK)

The Wapping Project Bankside announces the first UK exhibition of Jacqueline Hassink’s acclaimed series View, Kyoto (2004 – 2011) this fall. Dutch visual artist Hassink is well-known for her interest in economic power and the spaces in which it is exercised, and staged. She was recently shortlisted for the prestigious Prix Pictet 2012 and Henri Cartier Bresson Award in 2013.  View, Kyoto – Hassink’s most evocative and visually seductive project to date, is a detailed photographic study of some of the most magnificent examples of traditional Japanese gardens surrounding the Buddhist temples of Kyoto. Hassink first visited Kyoto in 2001 and started working on her project in summer 2004. She initially visited 34 gardens, chose 19 and, after difficult negotiations, was allowed to photograph 12. She returned the following years, and, between 2004 and 2011, produced work in around 40 temples. The Wapping Project Bankside is presenting a selection of 10 large scale prints from the series, including works produced in the Hosen-in, Shoden-ji and Ryoan-ji temples of Kyoto, along with a video. Be there today at 18.30 for the private view and get full infos at the link below.

GOLDFRAPP — ANNABEL

A young, androgynous boy explores his femininity through a hoard of trinkets hidden in the undergrowth in the accompanying video to “Annabel,” a brand new track from Goldfrapp. Today’s short film was shot by Alison Goldfrapp’s partner Lisa Gunning, who worked as the Editor on Sam Taylor-Johnson’s Nowhere Boy and here transposes the “endless winters” of the song’s lyrics to a warm English summer.
