Jane Howarth - The Ladies (2012) - A collection of 1930s taxidermy sea birds and junk jewelry

“Glamorous ladies discard their fashions and their adornments and head for the seduction of the shimmering surf and shingle. Upon their distraction scavenger gulls descend and feast on the picnic of kid leather gloves, pearl necklaces and other delightful items left abandoned on the sand.”

SUBMISSION:
Julia Murakami, Nature Morte, (detail), 2008
From the series Anatomy of a fairy tale (photo: Ulli Predeek)  
Julia Murakami´s Anatomy of a fairy tale, miniatures in little glass cases, takes a butcher at the atrocity of well known fairy tales. Sleeping Beauty, Little Red Riding Hood, Snow White and the Little Mermaid retold by tiny precious sculptures with a sinister shift. Saving grace does not exist for the slaughtered ladies in the realm of Julia Murakami. Broken beauties that will never come back. Frozen crime scenes scattered with pieces of evidence. Julia Murakami, herself a bewitching fairy, widens this field of tension between the fabulous and forensics by re-enacting her sites of crime. A lineup of photographs, as shot by an investigator, show the beauty herself as the victim of the creepy crimes. Thus the magical reflects back into the real, blurring the boundaries, straddling the real world and the sorcerous, a passage from fantasy to reality to fantasy. The delicate details of the dead belles are made by her own hair and blood. A possessed enchantress, perpetrator and victim, beauty and beast at once. (placeboKatz)

LAS RUDAS

Artist Sofie Bird Møller (b. 1974) lives and works in Berlin.

(from the series ‘Las Rudas’, acrylic paint on page from catalogue, 2011)

The young Danish artist Sofie Bird Møller is known for her work with fashion advertisements. The advertisements are torn out from well-known fashion magazines and with precision but also decided violence Sofie Bird Møller has painted over the models in the advertisements so they appear as abstract forms and so the painted shapes partly obscure what lies underneath. Anthropomorphic figures are suggested by thick, lush brushstrokes that have been laid over models striking elegant poses. The texture and viscosity of the paint are suggestive of naked flesh, even muscle tissue, meat.

Silhouette of the Moscow during the German bombing raid, 1941.  Taken by Margaret Bourke-White.

Bourke-White was the first female war correspondent and the first woman to be allowed to work in combat zones during World War II. In 1941, she traveled to the Soviet Union just as Germany broke its pact of non-aggression. She was the only foreign photographer in Moscow when German forces invaded. Taking refuge in the U.S. Embassy, she then captured the ensuing firestorms on camera.
