We saw a showcase of new work by The Bruce High Quality Foundation in Thomas Ammann Fine Art AG’s booth at Art Basel. Unable to afford anything priced in Swiss Francs or Euros, we played the familiar role of art appreciator. Fast forward one month stateside, and the anonymous artist collective have released a “self portrait” print with Exhibition A, priced for the high-end American collector on a budget.
Shepard Fairey revisits a rare early print inspired by Russian Constructivism and turns it into a 21st century commodity. Available July 17th.
Santiago Mostyn shares with us the story behind his photograph Susa in the Fog, 2014
Summers can be cold in Stockholm, and sort of rainy, but when a warm day cools off into one of those nights that never gets dark there’s a cinematic fog that rises over all the waterways in the city. I’d spent the night before this photograph riding around with a sound system and a few good friends looking to start a street party, but when that didn’t work out we ended up at a Jazz club after closing hours drinking with the chef and a bartender we knew. Late night turned into early morning and we all rode bikes through the deserted, echoing centre of town before climbing a fence onto a concrete jetty and jumping into the water.
The woman in the photograph makes up one half of SW, a dreamy new music project releasing their first tape this month (check their cover of Bruce Springsteen’s Tougher than the Rest here). The two of us have become close collaborators since this photo was made, and when I first saw it on the contact sheet it really felt like a prophecy of all the exciting things to come. It’s great when an image seems to show you the way forward like that.
This photo is available as an edition through Absolut’s art initiative
