NEW DESIGNER: John Alexander Skelton

John Alexander Skelton is a recent graduate from the

prestigious MA Course at Central Saint Martins, where

his revered collection took the prize during London

Fashion week. Skelton’s work stems from an extensive

interest in the socio-political and the effect it has on

fashion and culture within specific contexts and an

obsession with the concept of class, past and

present.

His recent collections have been inspired by themes

as diverse as the cotton trade between India and

Britain in the 1930s to traditional British 19th - century

folk theatre and medieval pagan rituals. His tailoring

evokes deconstructed versions of 19th - century

menswear such as voluminous frock coats and highwaisted

trousers.

An underlying and paramount facet to John Alexander

Skelton’s work is sustainability. Using repurposed

cloth from existing clothing, utilising recycled fabrics

such as antique bed sheets and old grain sacks, often

found in markets, weaving wools from British fleece,

knitting yarn from rare breeds of British sheep and

naturally dyed and naturally finished materials. He

customises these materials through hand-dying, overwashing,

painting and patching to create garments

inspired by his research into the past, traditional

craft, heritage, politics and a step towards an entirely

autonomously made collection.

HORISAKI goes to Vienna

Song is delighted to announce a presentation
from bespoke hat makers, 
Horisaki Design & Handel.

Please come and meet the designer duo
and have a drink with us!

Tuesday 3rd December, 17h - 20h
 

 

Located in the heart of the Swedish countryside, Horisaki Design & Handel create world renown and timeless artisanal hats, meant to be worn and tell the story of the wearer. Run by Makoto and Karin Horisaki, their namesake creations are produced directly in their home and farm.
The peaceful, yet wild, nature that surrounds them is the main source of inspiration for their unique designs, along with the mentalities and lost methods of past cultures. The duo has reinvented and introduced their design and production values into an expansive line of hats.
The love and respect for craftsmanship and manual labour is reflected in each of their headpieces and garments, which combine their Japanese- Swedish roots and traditional techniques. Makoto, originally a jewellery designer, first came to Sweden from Japan when he was 13, while Karin trained as a milliner in Gothenburg, later creating hats for Sweden’s royal family. After meeting in Stockholm, the two soon began to collaborate and develop the Horisaki design studio.

The hats and garments are all handmade, honoring the traditions of the trade, and exclusively from the finest materials. Opting for antiquated and laborious processes, the uncompromising old fashioned methods employed, take weeks in order to create a hat, with each stage carefully and patiently passing through their fingers.

New brand of beautiful knitwear

Thursday, 24.10.2019

NEW BRAND: Leorosa

SONG is excited to announce to arrival of the new brand Leorosa.

Leorosa was founded in 2019 by Paolina Leccese and Julian Taffel with the intention to create a renewed type of heritage brand with knitwear as the core product and the belief that quality should never be compromised. All of the pieces are made with love in Italy using Italian wool and cashmere yarns. The designers favour bold colours and classic silhouettes when designing what they consider a 'modern essential item'. While the product is inspired by traditional essentials, the always add a contemporary lens to what we design and for the aesthetic to be ageless. The goal is to make clothes that can be worn and passed down through generations.

 

Julian and Paolina met in 2013 while studying at Parsons School of Design in New York. Julian is Japanese-American and was born and raised in New York, where he lives. Paolina is German-Italian, born in Cologne, and currently based between Milan and Cologne. the name of the brand is a portmanteau of their middle names, Leo and Rosa.

New Exhibition: It's Not a Finger - Michele Bubacco

The series entitled “Prova d’Orchestra”, painted on 33s record covers, developed during a recent journey of the artist in Palermo. 

Strolling around the typical Palermitan local markets, as a kind of propitiatory walk before work in his atelier, Bubacco casually chances upon old LPs - which are cheap there and in great abundance. He is struck by the images portrayed on them, often photographic and figurative, and often based on the clichés of the style and period in which the album was made. 

Using these images as a starting point for his research, the artist saves some fragments, using them as a linchpin to redirect the painting outcome to an imaginative improvisation, still figurative, but throwing off the balance to new improbable associations and meanings. 

Through his intervention, Bubacco succeeds in combining a variety of images from very different epochs, styles and geographical origins, creating an unexpected form of continuity, an odd allegory of the human condition. 

In the way in which different cultures find a form of rowdy harmony in the Palermitan markets and squares, this series of works becomes the development of a representational score for an improbable prova d’orchestra.

New Exhibition at SONG SONG: Philip Emde

.Cause there’s Beauty in the Breakdown..

Philip Emde

(sent on 14/08/19 at 20:20)

… i visited only once Vienna before … it was February … cold very cold and I got a little bit lost … visited the narrenturm … Egon Schiele … the things he made with his hands … it was kind of morbid but although nice in a way … there was beauty behind …

 

Philip tells me that Caspar David Friedrich’s ‘Wanderer above the Sea of Fog’, ca. 1817, is an important work to him. Friedrich placed in the middle of the canvas the image of a dignified man, his back turned to us, atop a cliff. Our subject gazes out at a vast and unknowable territory obscured from view by a thick, low fog. He himself is just as unknowable, as an observer we are invited to project onto him what we image ourselves to see or feel in his place - object and subject become one.

 

Let us set the current scene: lining the wall are works with silent, stuffed, and motionless observers. These monkeys perch in front of murky surfaces. What do we see in them?

 

As with us human art-goers, the stuffed chimpanzees of Emde’s imagination react differently to the works, some observing introspectively, some wistfully gazing whilst perched with a lover, some elated, some turned away in mock disgust. A kind of ‘Singerie’ springs to mind, a tradition of depicting monkeys imitating human behaviours such as playing cards or painting, which as a form of mild satire of society grew in prominence within the canvases of great Flemish and French painters of the 16th to 18th centuries.

 

Along one side of the room they contemplate foggy silver surfaces, somewhere between foil and mirror. Emde’s monkeys imitate the various viewings of serious art with a cheeky wink and a light nudge. Innocent toys composed in this way could evoke Narcissus finding himself in every reflection, lost in a very personal abyss. Contemplation of the self and contemplation of art can be a sticky business, and hard to pry apart.

 

The playfulness of Emde’s works cover territory as vast and deep as Friedrich’s fog. His tools are the company Steiff’s cheerful tokens of childhood; anyone who grew up in the German-speaking world will be familiar with these iconic animals, all branded with the emblematic ‘Knopf im Ohr’ and yellow ear tag. His large collection of used and unused Steiff animals, found predominantly on eBay, make up a wondrous overflowing studio, a cave of stuffed wonders he has dubbed EmdiLand.

 

It is in this studio that the tumbling colourful totem pole of stuffed friends is birthed, and children’s toys are his perfect tool. It becomes apparent whilst thinking about the works that children are in fact natural collectors. They do so before they can attribute their collections to any rhyme or reason, are inclined to collect marbles, stones, stickers, and especially lifeless companions.

 

In this way Emde also turns the act of collecting on its head, the collecting of stuffed animals such as Beanie Babies and other branded toys being auctioned off on the web holds a certain 90s nostalgia, of a time before such online bubbles were burst. In today’s art context the collector is the ultimate critical observer.

 

Questioning the lens through which we see and are moved by works as a collectible representation of the human experience, Emde breaks down the elements of artful seeing with colour and humour.

 

Philip Emde lives and works in Cologne and Neustadt Weinstrasse. This will be the first time his work is shown in Vienna.

NEW ARRIVALS: TOOGOOD

 

  Collection 009 

WHEN our minds are beset by autumn’s bluster and winter’s chills, our thoughts inexorably turn to layers. The layers of clothing with which we envelop our frames, to warm and to protect and to sculpt. And the layers of the land, the sediments laid down in the earth like a historical record by the accreted actions of ordinary men and women. This landscape is a neverending work in progress, shaped by toil, ploughed and restructured and built upon where needed. 

   We reject the unsustainable turnover of flighty fashionistas, who rework themselves in transient faddery with every passing season! Our revolution is an evolution, incremental and rugged like the very land itself! The steadfast patterns of industry and labour are our bedrock, lying beneath everything we do. The spirit of the soil imbues our palette with tones of peat and clay and slate, and permeates the very materials of our trade, the sandblasted silks, the highland wools, the waxed cottons that protect against the harsh elements. In appliquéd clusters of felted cloth, we summon up the topography of the eternal landscape and wear it on our sleeves. This is our terrain – explore it!

NEW ARRIVALS: KH WÜRTZ

Aage and Kasper Würtz are an internationally sought-after father and son team of studio ceramists from Denmark.  Würtz ceramics — typically made of stoneware, occasionally of porcelain — possess a leading-edge 21st century aesthetic, yet each piece is created completely by hand, using mostly ancient wheel-turning and glazing methods. All in all, the Würtz style is simultaneously contemporary in design and archaic in the crafting. It’s been described as timeless but is also future-oriented in the way it supersedes both heavily floral traditional fine china dinner sets and early 21st century minimalist white faience.

LUNCHEON:BERNHARD HAUSEGGER

 

   Song Song presents: Luncheon, “Der aus dem Schrank springt”, a new work by Bernhard Hausegger (b. 1957, Graz, lives and works in Vienna).This is the artist’s first exhibition with the gallery.The installation, created to be viewed from an outside perspective through a window glass, reveals a sculptural habitat created by the artist.Hausegger’s artistic practice is guided by a certain economy, renouncing smooth finishing.His material grade is never embellished, the steps of production remain visible and traces of previous owners are still clinging to the oftentimes recycled materials. Aside from references immanent to art, the logic of his sculptural practice aims to establish an architectural scenic quality, simultaneously providing its indwellers housing, pedestal and stage.
