Juergen Teller got in car and drove from Germany to London. He didn’t speak English. He didn’t learn it in school because he didn’t think he’d ever need it.
Juergen Teller folded Kate Moss into a wheelbarrow, stripped Vivienne Westwood of everything but her ruby red lipstick and submerged his daughter in a pond on her thirteenth birthday.
Juergen Teller published his hate mail and letters of criticism. He drew a positive message from his father’s suicide and advises noone to follow in his footsteps because then, how will they find their own feet?
Juergen Teller is a portrait artist who his art in the personality of the subject.
Juergen Teller’s exhibition Woo is at the ICA in London from January 23rd to March 17th. Definitely worthy of hopping on a plane!
Fashion is an expression of being, feeling, emotion and belief. It is a creativy and one that film is not ignorant to. The amount of fashion shorts are on the increase and the combination of imagination and innovation involved in both fashion and film is churning out breathtaking results. Pierre Debusschere’s The Lake is technically beautiful with methods of water explosion, slow motion and reverse editing used to frame the incredible clothing and actress, Isild Le Besco. The pieces designed by industry gurus such as Vivienne Westwood, Robert Cavalli, Marc Jacobs, Gucci and Prada to name but a few, transform the French beauty into a creature of the sea, a modern day mermaid. The marbling of aqua colours and dazzle combined with the dreamy countdown and the clarity and pureness of water and landscape give the short an element of liberation. It is an emotive piece that speaks of freedom and the importance of nature whilst simultaneously displaying a collection of exquisite clothing.
