Natura Dentata - Art and fashion in a dark embrace (March 17–June 18, 2017), Stockholm
A picnic in the grass. The wind in the leaves. Sweet-smelling wild flowers. Glades full of berries and mushrooms. Birdsong. Sunset. Shades of green. Signs of wildlife. Enchanting northern lights. The Nordic feeling for nature involves an almost spiritual relationship to the forest, the landscape, the water and the animal kingdom. We go fishing, camping, swimming, trekking in deep snow. We see the seasons as an asset, and turn to nature for joy and relaxation. Like a paradise. But nature is not just a friendly source of recreation, comfort, safe adventure and recovery. Nature is also a force that lacks empathy, that takes over, and harbours danger...

For designer Lamija Suljević the forest is either a hiding place from soldiers, or a gaping green grave. Her meticulously hand-sewn collection was created as a process of coming to terms with the genocide in Srebrenica.  Lamija Suljevic is part of the new generation of Swedish designers. Born in Bosnia, she fled from the war torn country to Sweden at the young age of 5. After becoming a fashion graduate of design, Lamija's interests turned to tailoring, and she has since completed a course in pattern design and dress making at the local Cutting Academy. Lamija's designs pay tribute to her roots and origins, and aim to blend the realms of fashion and art. in her latest collection she draws inspiration from the Balkans. Lamija is inspired by handicraft and luxurious traditional hand-made techniques.

Anna Scholz takes us to a children’s fantasy world, populated by capricious centaurs.... The end, death, is also present in the film by Martin Bergström and Thomas Klementsson, which deals with uncomfortable growth and decomposition, when life ceases. And the designer Minna Palmqvist incessantly explores culture’s attitude to the body given to us by nature. In Natura Dentata, art meets fashion in a dark embrace. Welcome!

PHOTO LONDON Pre-Fair Talk : Brett Rogers OBE in conversation with photographer Jack Latham (Somerset House | 22 March 2017 | 7pm)
Brett Rogers OBE, will speak in conversation with photographer Jack Latham at Somerset House in this latest exciting Photo London (next issue : 18-21 May 2017) pre-Fair talk. Brett Rogers has been Director of The Photographers’ Gallery since 2005, and is widely recognised as being instrumental in establishing photography as a leading art form in the UK, cementing its position in cultural institutions across the country as well as tirelessly promoting great British photography to an international audience.

Jack Latham is a freelance photographer, born in Wales, now living and working in Brighton. Latham was the recipient of the Bar Tur Photobook Award 2015, for his publication Sugar Paper Theories, which traces an infamous true crime case in Iceland. Known as the Reykjavik Confessions, it involved the testimonies of six people, who confessed to two murders they had no apparent memory of. Sugar Paper Theories was co-published by Here Press and The Photographers’ Gallery.

Rogers and Latham will discuss the winning of this prize to frame Latham’s wider practice which explores the boundaries between documentary and fine art photography in telling stories of contemporary social issues. © // 1 file // show complete blog
