GARAGE Magazine Challenges Your Individuality in Edgy 4th Edition
Edgy bi-annual magazine GARAGE launches issue #4 this week. Its a theme rooted in VANITY and the void of the individual in the fashion industry, as photographed by Patrick Demarchelier. Models don Cindy Sherman masks, which were created using Thats My Face to reproduce images of the artist. Vanity versus aesthetic? Me versus meme? Fashion versus branding? In this fourth edition, GARAGE focuses on those artists and individuals with strong identities, style, and personality.
Here are some highlights from the issue include:
Urs Fischer, in an interview by curator Neville Wakefield discussing art and identity, created original images, specifically for the magazine, based on his problem paintings.
Boris Mikhailov, in conversation with Juergen Teller, talks photography and beauty over clam pasta. Their portraits of one another tell a visual story based on the memories Mikhailov has of his mother to accompany the interview.
‘Paper Doll,’ photographed by Alex Sainsbury, is a playful photo essay on childhood paper dolls and dress up with Aimee Mullins, a model and Paralympic athlete. The antithesis of a paper doll, Mullins contrasts the concept of a doll as a strong and accomplished role model.
Theaster Gates, as interviewed by Dasha Zhukova, engages community to activate the individual. Artist and activist, it is with Gates that art acts as catalyst for social transformation.
Mykki Blanco, Angel Haze, and SSION as shot by surrealist photographer Asger Carlsen, emanate the strength of individuality in commercial music.
‘GARAGE Games Collection,’ artists, designers, and illustrators including Mary Katrantzou, Michael Craig-Martin, Julia Zastava, Hatti Stewart and Ashley Bickerton create interactive games based on classics with a contemporary twist.
