JR in Rome for the European premiere of “Paper & Glue”

JR in Rome for the European premiere of “Paper & Glue”

Giulia Guido · 2 months ago · Art

On Friday 23 July at 9.15 p.m., in the splendid setting of the Parco della Cervelletta in Rome, the first European screening of “Paper & Glue”, the documentary that opens the doors to the world of the renowned French artist JR, will take place.
Where did you start? How do you create your works? How does he create works such as the one on the US-Mexican border or in the Brazilian favelas? The artist himself takes us on a journey of discovery. 

The evening of Friday 23rd, which is part of the Il Cinema in Piazza festival organised by the Associazione Piccolo America, will not only include a screening of “Paper & Glue”, but also a discussion between JR and the director Mathieu Kassoitz, who will be present to talk about cinema and art and how these two disciplines can merge to create something extraordinary. 

The French artist has repeatedly shown his ties with Italy, both through collaborations with directors such as Alice Rohrwacher – last year the two presented the short film “Omelia Contadina” together in Venice – and with installations.
A few months ago, La ferita (The Wound), created on the facade of Palazzo Strozzi in Florence, caused quite a stir, and a few hours ago the artist unveiled another similar work on his Instagram profile, this time on the facade of Palazzo Farnese in Rome. 

So, if you’ve been following JR and admiring his work for some time, the premiere of “Paper & Glue” is an unmissable event, and while you’re at it, take a trip to Piazza Farnese to see his latest installation. 

Entrance to the screening is free while places last, book HERE to secure your place!

Suds and Smiles the photo series by Samantha Fortenberry

Suds and Smiles the photo series by Samantha Fortenberry

Collater.al Contributors · 1 week ago · Photography

Alabama based photographer Samantha Fortenberry has taken a series of photos called ‘Suds and Smiles‘. She asked her friends to choose a series of objects, which had important meaning for them or which were important for the time of the bathroom, thus customizing the set one by one. The collection explores the relationship between people and objects, kitsch accessories and hilarious settings are the protagonists of these super-colored photos.

The people portrayed are naked, the artist wanted to represent them in this way, in all their beauty and naturalness. Samantha also introduces ideas of body positivity and gender equality and, between a male and female nude, the photos express great confidence.

The girl says: “I want to gather a wide variety of people of all their shapes and sizes to show the various forms of beauty that each person has“.
Let’s take a look at it together.

Juergen Teller plays with SS22 by JW Anderson

Juergen Teller plays with SS22 by JW Anderson

Andrea Tuzio · 6 days ago · Photography, Style

It is impossible to define Juergen Teller as a simple fashion photographer.
With his work and his unique and inimitable aesthetics, the German photographer investigates the social constructions that concern beauty and everyday life through his direct and unfiltered style that leads to irony, humor and provocation.
His subjects are all treated in the same way regardless of who they are, the cut of his shots is democratic, instinctive and direct thanks to which he has become an icon in the world of artistic and fashion photography.
He has always preferred the rough sincerity of the photos that came out of the roll as they were, always true to himself, he has never changed his style even when he switched to digital. 
He has worked for Burberry, Celine, Marc Jacobs, his photographs have ended up on the covers of Face, i-D and Vogue and he has done covers for Björk and Morrisey.

This time around, Teller becomes a double star for JW Anderson’s SS22 lookbook.

A real calendar where, among the models wearing the prêt-à-porter creations of the British designer surrounded by tires that serve as a set, the German photographer chooses to become part of the project by immortalizing himself in black briefs and a camera around his neck in pin-up poses.

Teller overturns the status quo, overturning, as usual, the exasperated seriousness of the fashion world to play with it and make fun of it.
This is the umpteenth proof by a legend of contemporary photography, that he always manages to unsettle the users and rewrite obsolete rules, only to overturn everything again immediately afterwards.

Below you can check out JW Anderson’s SS22 lookbook/calendar.

The party for the 30th anniversary of the Shadow 6000 by Saucony Originals

The party for the 30th anniversary of the Shadow 6000 by Saucony Originals

Giulia Guido · 6 days ago · Style

A few weeks ago, on the occasion of the 30th anniversary of the Shadow 6000, the famous Saucony Originals silhouette, street artist EricsOne painted a gigantic mural that continues to dominate Corso Garibaldi.
The celebrations did not end with the creation of the artwork, however, as a few evenings later the brand new Carlo al Naviglio restaurant opened its doors to friends of Saucony for an exclusive party where EricsOne’s work was officially presented to the public with a video projected on the mega screens positioned in the location’s courtyard. 

The guests had the chance to see many Saucony Originals models displayed like works of art in a gallery, positioned on pedestals lit by design lamps, ready to be admired from every perspective and, in the meantime, to taste the assortment of samples proposed by the kitchen. 

Shadow 6000 di Saucony Originals

As always, Saucony had a special eye on its guests, offering both a selection of items, from tote bags to shoes, personalised and hand-painted by professionals, and a live painting performance by EricsOne, who during the evening created another piece of artwork, much smaller than the one in Corso Garibaldi, but equally impactful. 

The event was then enlivened by exceptional music, with a dj-set by Polly and Pamy, who for the second part of the evening gave way at the consolle to DJ and producer Shablo, then joined by artist Ernia who entertained the audience with her “Superclassico” on the very day the single went platinum three times. 

The evening also officially launched the new Fall/Winter 2021 campaign which precedes a series of highly anticipated releases throughout October including the Shadow 6000 Sweet Street from the Shadow 6000 Foodfight.

Relive the atmosphere and the best moments of the party in our gallery and in the video below!
