VITRA SUMMER PARTY 2015

as every year it was a blast to be invited by VITRA for the summerparty during ART BASEL. look at the lovely decoration – so nice! there was cool music and lots of nice art and design to see. there are many different buildings inside the VITRA campus, the newest is by SANA. my favorite one is the showroom by HERZOG & DE MEURON but I also like the one by TADAO ANDO. this years entry badge was a piece of fabric that the tied around our wrists. a nice idea but so far the metall bands were my favorite – I still have them and collected the different colors from other friends that were there.

VITRA

the food was delicious and there was a nice vegetarian alternative. my favorite was the couscous salad – mmmhhhmm, can I please have one more?! and the ice cream was a touch of heaven on earth too bad I did not check by whom the catering was..

I dunno if you can remember but a couple of years ago there was a bug attack during VITRA PARTY and I was telling some friends about that and literally 5 minutes later the first bug was there and he was followed by friends. I jinxed it 🙂 sorry for that but again it was fun to see all the people hide and run from the almost blind flying bugs.. after one hour the bugs were gone, ouff!

VITRA

all the friends in the house – eehm at the VITRA PARTY!
thank you Wilpert, Mo, Cristian, Esther and Fleur – it was super nice!

MY FASHION INTERPRETATION

fashion meets art Suk Chuljoo

this is one of my favorite pieces from SCOPE 2015 I can look at it forever and always see something new. the coolest things about works like this is that you can really zoom into the painting and see even more things.the title fits: NEW SCENERY IN DREAM. yes I can see the new scenery in my pinkish dream.

outfit
shirt ZARA
skirt VINTAGE (fleamarket)
ballerinas BESTELLE
bag and sunglasses C&A

about the artist and project
1950 Born in Seoul
Graduated from Oriental Painting of Faculty of Art, Chugae Art College
Graducated from Graduate School of Education, Dongguk University

HOW IS IT DONE?
“his works were created by reapplying white color on top of ground color applied by using acrylic water color and drawing the outline of mountain using air gun filled with water and regular brush while erasing the water color on surface to reveal the ground”

unfortunately it was very hard to find anything about the artist because not even on the KEUMSAN gallery website there is a link or any additional info about his artwork. I have found that quiet common among asian galleries and artist. AND I DONT UNDERSTAND THIS, why?? It should be the job of the gallery to present the artist with all the information regarding him and his works.

STONES AGAINST DIAMONDS

IsaacJulien

thank you Rolls Royce for inviting me to the press breakfast at elisaebethen kirche to meet ISAAC JULIEN and see the wonderful installation that I have already mentioned on the blog.

the installation is absolutely breath taking I could sit there forever and watch the different images on the screen. I have explained the piece in the previous post so please go back and read it there : ) being inside the exhibition made me feel like I was there in the cold with Vanessa. it was so nice to take a photo with Isaac Julien and of course I had to ask by whom the clothes were Vanessa Myrie was wearing. his answer was: MIYAKE. beautiful black and white outfits!

TED NOTEN – ORNAMENTUM
DESIGN MIAMI BASEL

CONVERSATION TABLE (2014)

about TED NOTEN

Ted Noten is one of the most innovative jewellery designers working in the netherlands today.
with seemingly effortless ease he is one of the very few who manages to venture into projects that fall under the heading of product design. thus Noten teamed up for several projects with droog design and has presented his spoils at the furniture designfair in milan. similarly, during a stint working at he european ceramic centre he experimented with ceramic dinner sets. for other projects he sought out artists to work with. yet it is essential that Noten emphatically and symptomatically keeps coming down on the side of design, and more specifically for design that employs, feeds off and expresses itself in terms of jewellery design. because it is from this inside track of the craft that he comments on what jewellery design actually is and that he is able to best challenge representatives operating in other areas of the arts. In recent years Ted Noten has created work for private collectors, local councils, art institutions etc. a broad spectrum of galleries and museum collections now represent his oeuvre. the designer initiated some of these projects, only to be adopted later by a museum, as was the case for example with ‘Chew your own brooch’. with a little help from the chewing gum he hands out, everybody can become a jewellery designer; simply by chewing the gooey substance into a shape the craftsman then casts either in silver, bronze or gold. one of the events at which Noten manifested himself with this project was an open day at the boijmans museum, when hundreds of people filed through the museum, chewing their way to a design.

ART WEEK 2015 – SCHEDULE & OUTFITS

the ART Basel week is over and I had such a good time. once again my dear friends from the netherlands were here and this year Justin showed a german artist
SEBASTIAN WEGGLER at his TEN HAAF PROJECTS gallery space inside VOLTA11.
my schedule was tight especially the first three days were very intense, lots of ART lots of DESIGN and lots of PARTYING.

ART WEEK 2015
here you can find all my posts from twitter, facebook and instagram.

monday I started with VOLTA11 and ART UNLIMITED and enjoyed myself at the LISTE OPENING PARTY at VOLKSHAUS. tuesday I had breakfast at the Rolls Royce art space inside ELISABETHEN KIRCHE with Isaac Julien and his so very cool video installations from iceland – read more about the project here. and later on I went to see DESIGN MIAMI BASEL and also saw the AUDEMARS PIGUET fireflies installation by ROBIN MEIER – I also blogged about that project – more here. in the evening we had an awesome party on DAS SCHIFF by DESIGN MIAMI BASEL and PERROTIN where we all met TAKESHI MURAKAMI and took funny photos with his staff. wednesday I started my day with DAVIDOFF and went to ART BASEL and SCOPE. later on we had a super nice time at VITRA – we were so lucky that it did not rain that day. thursday I had time to see ART BASEL again but only for a short time as I had to go home and see whether the delivery guy had brought my beautiful dresses by IOANA CIAOLACU for thursday and friday night. thursday night was BASEL NACHT where I was one of the hosts by VOLTA11 and I planned to wear the gorgeous red printed silk dress that had not arrived until fifteen minutes before the start of BASEL NACHT 🙂 but it was absolutely worth to wait for it. friday I had time to see ART BASEL and DESIGN MIAMI again and then spent a wonderful evening at Fondation Beyeler. afterwards we all met at CAMPARI CLUB at KUNSTHALLE.
saturday I had time to see LISTE ART UNLIMITED, DESIGN MIAMI and THE SOLO PROJECT and then went back to VOLTA. sunday I went to SCOPE where I have found something really nice. anyway, I will soon upload all the photos I took during the week and I will also tell you about the guy with the spices at Fondation Beyeler park. stay tuned for more and now I wanna show you some of my outfits during ART BASEL.
