    In Conversation: Allen Jones's Chair

    In the latest addition to our In Conversation series, a group of experts gathered with members of the public to discuss the provocative work Chair by artist Allen Jones. This piece is currently on display at the Royal Academy, where this discussion was held, along with other work from the artist’s long career. Leading the debate, which discusses reactions to Chair then and now, was Art Under Attack; Histories of British Iconoclasm curator Stacy Boldrick. Invited speakers included conservator Lyndsey Morgan who worked on Chair after it was sabotaged with acid in 1986, fashion commentator and feminist Grace Woodward, and Edith Devaney, curator of Allen Jones RA at the Royal Academy of Arts, who each present their own personal reactions to the work.

    Considering reactions to the piece since its creation in 1969, the discussion cites media depictions of controversial artworks, the destruction of artworks as feminist protest and the peculiarities of the visual language of BDSM. The conversation verges around subjects of the suffragettes, the 2002 film The Secretary and the fashion photography of Ellen Von Unwerth, as Woodward comments; ‘It raises the question, if this was made by a woman would we even be sitting around talking about it?’ On the topic of public responses to art exhibitions, Morgan also points out that ‘people get disgusted at a distance, I feel that happens often with shows I’ve been involved in. People go off and talk and go ‘it’s terrible’ and you say ‘well have you been?’ and they haven’t.’ 

    Watch this thought-provoking discussion and revisit others in the In Conversation series.

    Take 15 minutes with Shaun Leane

    Our beautiful final edit of Shaun Leane’s In Fashion interview with Lou Stoppard is now available to watch. 

    Watch the acclaimed jeweller share his first memories of fashion and tales of his ‘amazing’ apprenticeship making fine jewellery in Hatton Garden. Describing his ‘favourite phase’ restoring antique pieces, Leane credits his past masters with inspiring him to produce ‘my own jewellery that is a statement of the times that we live in now’, in reaction to the ‘real mass production era’ of the 1990s. Leane reflects: ‘That’s when I fell in love with design. Then through a moment of serendipity I met Alexander McQueen, and off we went.’

    Watch Leane’s revealing interview now, complete with stories of his innovative work with McQueen - ‘nothing was impossible’ - and his continuing need to push boundaries in the wake of his collaborator’s tragic, untimely death. Don’t forget to review the rest of the rolling In Fashion interview series featuring fashion luminaries from Daphne Guinness to McQueen himself.

    Subjective: Liberty Ross on Nick Knight

    This week's Subjective interview is with British supermodel Liberty Ross, who speaks to Nick Knight about their first ever shoot together.

    'I was just so ecstatic to work with you because I'd been a fan of yours for so long,' says Ross of the editorial for POP magazine, and Knight is equally complimentary; 'From my point of view, you modelled in a completely different way from anyone else I'd ever photographed.' Styled in cardboard garments by John Galliano and bondage tape, she also recalls the experience of getting undressed at the end of the day: 'I don't forget that feeling of relief!'

    Other topics of conversation include mentors, Katie Grand, and why modelling can't be taught -'It's something you feel inside you that needs to come out, but it's also a business and you have to learn that side of it.'

    Watch the complete interview now and stay tuned for more as Subjective continues!
