    SHOWstudio have teamed up with Marks & Spencer for the exclusive preview of their A/W 2018 Holiday Collection. 

    Last week at M&S's PR event, SHOWstudio's fashion illustrator Fiona Gourlay was invited to customise a new season tote in her whimsical and feminine style.  The tote, with its versatile reversible design, was illustrated both inside and out and was given away to one lucky winner of the customisation challenge, using the hashtags #aw18mands and #mandsxshowstudio.    

    To launch this exciting collaboration, Fiona led an illustration and customisation workshop with British fashion’s leading journalists and influencers and created a mural inspired by the nautical colours of the collection.

    Nick Knight unveils new portrait of Manchester bombing survivor Bradley Hurley

    Nick Knight has repeatedly engaged with and confronted violence in his work for the last 40 years. From Skinheads, to Accessable, the 14-page feature in Dazed & Confused which celebrated the beauty and power of people with disabilities, Knight is no stranger to pushing the boundaries of his subject matter. Knight includes narratives that might otherwise be on the fringe or periphery, elegantly handling issues others would be afraid to address (for more examples see Portrait of Caitin Stickels or his series on self-defence entitled Get Back, Stay Back with Lara Stone). Knight has always expressed a hatred of violence and his photographs for the Spanish publication Big in May 1997 were so graphic that the magazine had to carry a warning label.  

    In other words, this is a leitmotif that has run through all of Knight's work, with many projects over the last 40 years engaging with this theme.

    This latest portrait of Bradley Hurley, one of the men injured in the Manchester bombing, is as raw as it is accomplished. Whereas most coverage of the bombings depicted the attack's destructive aftermath, Knight observed the consequence of such violence, positioning his subject as a living monument to strength. There is no victimization or objectification of Bradley, no glorification of the violence. It is a raw portrait of a man who has survived the domestic war on terror. The image is the first in a series Nick Knight is undertaking on Victims of Violence.

    An excerpt from Knight and Bradley's Q+A in The Metro

    Can you tell me a little about the series you plan?

    Nick Knight: Bradley’s image is the first in a large body of work I am creating about people who have experienced extreme violence. For example acid attacks, bomb blasts, or knife attacks. This is absolutely not a series about the causes of violence or the perpetrators but instead, I want to celebrate the people who have been attacked and their amazing strength and spirit to survive.

    Why Bradley?

    NK: Bradley contacted me via Instagram and when I spoke to him I was incredibly impressed and in awe of his resilience and determination to continue his life so positively despite the horrific injuries and the devastating loss he had incurred.

    What impression do you expect to make on viewers with your photo of Bradley?

    NK: I want people to see the strength to survive that is in all of us.

    What do you see in your photo of Bradley?

    NK: A brilliant and powerful symbol of the human resilience and strength.

    What will be done with these images?

    NK: I am creating sculptures as well as films and photographs to be exhibited in a gallery.

     

    How did this photo shoot come about?

    Bradley Hurley: I have been a huge fan of Nick’s since I discovered his work in 2009, I have studied graphic design throughout my education & have always experimented with photography and Nick’s work has always been an influence in my own work. I got in contact with Nick’s team, fully aware that it was a shot in the dark and not expecting a response. I was so excited that Nick was interested in photographing me. It is truly a dream come true. It was actually a bit of a rush to get the photos done because the photo shoot was back in September & literally only a few days before the fixations were removed and it was important for us to have the external fixation’s incorporated in the shoot! So thank you to Nick for squeezing me in during fashion week! 

    Did you have any reservations?

    BH: I literally had no idea what to expect, but everything was perfect. Nick & his team made me & my family feel so comfortable throughout the day & talked me through every step of the way.

    What do you hope it will do?

    BH: When I was doing the photoshoot, I was doing it for me. The experience & the end product. So, it’s everything I hoped & more.

    What did you make of him?

    BH: Nick, his wife & his team were all the loveliest people & they made our day so special, one of the best experiences of my life. I would like to thank Nick Knight & his team from the bottom of my heart for taking the time out, at the busiest time of his year (just after fashion week) to spend an entire day photographing me. Thank you for believing my story was one worth telling through your art.

    Did it turn out as you expected?

    BH: I really had no idea what to expect, if you’re familiar with Nick’s work, you will know there is such a wide range of different aesthetics & each photo tells a completely different story, so I knew the piece would be individual to me. The photo really embodies everything I hoped for when we started the process.

    What do you think of the image?

    BH: I explained to Nick that I hoped for a portrait of resilience & strength to remember this chapter of my life & I knew working with Nick we would achieve that & we really did. I think the first word you think of when you see the photograph is ‘Strong’.

    Are photography or the visual arts things you would like a career in?

    BH: Having two broken legs lead me to minimal mobility and for the first time in my life, art became an outlet as opposed to only an interest and made me realise how truly passionate I am about the visual arts. I created and sold a pin-badge in commemoration of my sister's life during my recovery, using the graphic design skills I had. I sold 500 pin-badges to raise money for a garden erected in my sister's memory and the experience from start to finish taught me that creating things that evoke feeling is something special that really brings people together. I had just finished my second year at Liverpool John Moores University studying Graphic Design at the time of the attack and this is definitely something I hope to pursue as a career.

    Explore new interviews for the Hospital Rooms project!

     

    SHOWstudio are delighted to be continuing our collaboration and coverage of Hospital Rooms! Co-founded by artist Tim A Shaw and curator Niamh White, the initiative is continuing its aim of bringing art to mental health service users, unveiling its new body of work at Eileen Skellern 1, a psychiatric care unit for women aged 18-65.

    Since 2016, the Hospital Rooms project has sought to refurbish the environments used by mental health service users, with the aim to create spaces more conducive to comfort and recovery. It's first project at the Phoenix Unit at Springfield Hospital in South West London, set the tone for the artists and service users to collaborate on the pieces created for the ward, with contributions also being made by the psychiatrists, allied health professionals and public health researchers.

    Thigh House

    Sarabande Foundation is working with artist Rosa Uddoh to complete the biggest 'thigh tile' house to date: an immersive installation built from casts of black and brown female and non-binary bodies, with the objective to bringing communities together.

    The concept of a Thigh House comes from the Cuban myth according to which black women were made to shape tiles on their thighs, which were then interlocked to create roofs for Spanish colonial buildings.

    Rosa Uddoh is an MA student of Fine Art at the prestigious Slade School of Fine Art. She was chosen for a Sarabande scholarship by Nick Knight in 2016, after she first presented her work 'thigh house', which, at the time, was a small timber frame of a house with a few roof tiles she had cast from friends.

    A Kickstarter campaign has been set up with the objective to allow Uddoh to create a much bigger roof with tiles cast by many, brown and black women and non-binary people that come together in a harmonious community, thus creating space to celebrate bodies at the margins.

    The roof made with those tiles will become an installation to be presented at Sarabande in May.

    I'M A DREAMER

    Gareth Pugh has teamed up with Selfridges to create a concept space in their Oxford Street flagship store. The week-long takeover - part of Selfridges’ Anatomy of Luxury programme - will run in the store’s ground floor Corner Shop from the 16-22 April and will celebrate London as a creative nexus, with Pugh taking the title of 90s techno floor filler I’m a Dreamer as a jump-off point. 

    Pugh’s residency will feature a large-scale mega-mix of twenty plus fashion films created and directed by our very own Nick Knight and the brilliant Ruth Hogben, and a retrospective look into the designer’s archive. Pugh is collaborating with SHOWstudio to stage creative ‘interventions’ (one each day) in the Corner Shop’s vast Oxford Street window. The confirmed line up so far includes designers Edwin Mohney, Richard Malone, Bianca Saunders, Sinead O'Dwyer and stylist Ibrahim Kamara, each of whom will be staging a live installation over the course of the week, platforming their work and the issues they care about. 

    SHOWstudio kicks off their collaboration with Pugh with Edwin Mohney's window display on Monday 16 April 16:00 BST. Follow our Facebook Lives with Features Editor Lara Johnson-Wheeler to gain better insight into the space and Mohney's process! 

    Plus! Thursday 19 April, SHOWstudio's Fashion Illustration Gallery is taking over the Selfridges Window, with illustrators Beth Fraser, Fiona Gourlay, Stephen Doherty and Jenifer Corker all interpreting looks from designer Sinead O'Dwyer. Our Fashion Editor Georgina Evans will be on hand, interviewing each artist with our Facebook Lives!  

    The designer’s residency will culminate on Saturday 21 April with an exhilarating ‘behind the curtain’ installation, with the space transformed into a full-scale recreation of a backstage set up at one of Gareth Pugh’s shows. 

    Created in collaboration with MAC Cosmetics, plus legendary nail artist Marian Newman and CND Nails, friends and customers will be offered total makeovers, inspired by the designer’s full throttle aesthetic. Sink The Pink superstars and Veuve Clicquot will also be on hand. ‘I want it to be an all-out celebration of the creative spirit of London... London as a place where anything can happen.’ says Pugh.  

    16-22 April Selfridges Corner Shop on G 400 Oxford St, Marylebone, London W1A 1AB
