REBELS – A SPACE FOR RADICAL MINDS
ABOUT THE CURATOR
Warren Du Preez and Nick Thornton Jones are regarded as two of the industry’s leading artists within image making and film.
Warren and Nick began their collaboration in 1998 through their shared passion for the image-making process and possibilities of combining their photographic art form and emerging digital domains. Their distinctive approach in visual communication and experimentation has resulted in award-winning collaborations with Bjork, UNKLE and Iris van Herpen, as well as striking and highly original campaigns for, amongst many others, Mugler, Cartier and Issey Miyake.
As the founder of one of the most coveted music labels in the world, James Lavelle shaped the cultural landscape of the 1990s.
Founder of Mo' Wax Records and UNKLE, Lavelle nurtured some of the most influential artists of the decade and tapped into what was without a doubt the most celebrated and innovative era since the 1960s. Widely regarded as the greatest A&R man of the day, in the twenty years since UNKLE’s debut, Lavelle has been prolific as producer, DJ and curator.
Described by Vogue UK as ‘a Punk attitude with a talent for putting the wrong thing in the right place’, London based,
Spatial Designer, Anna Burns’ creative work has the ability to subvert the pretty and champion fantasy worlds.
Anna’s work has been published in multiple fashion magazines worldwide and her acclaimed window displays for Hermes, Burberry, Christian Louboutin and Selfridges continue to inspire and surprise her audience. She is renowned for her signature bold and graphic aesthetic.
Rebecca Louise Law is a British Installation Artist, best known for artworks created with natural materials, namely flora.
The physicality and sensuality of her work plays with the relationship between humanity and nature. Law is passionate about
natural change and preservation, allowing her work to evolve as nature takes its course and offering an alternative concept of beauty.
Rebecca is widely recognised for colossal floral artworks, sculpted using her signature copper wire. Her works change naturally in shape and form over the course of time.
British born, London based, Liam Hodges graduated from London’s Royal College of Art in 2013 after studying menswear under the
tutorage of stylist Simon Foxton. In 2014 Liam debuted a collection for Fashion East before gaining catwalk sponsorship under the
prestigious Topman backed MAN show, for three consecutive seasons.
Drawing influencers from modern male subcultures, Liam Hodges has been labelled a luxury brand for the mad and bad. The ones who forsake conformity everyday – not just at the weekend.
Joe Goddard, member of Hot Chip and The 2 Bears, songwriter, producer, DJ, remixer and co-founder of the Greco-Roman label. Joe
combines a thirst for experimentation, an instinctive understanding of the dancefloor and a love of left-of-centre pop music.
As well as working on eight albums, Joe’s work with the likes of Kraftwerk, New Order, Disclosure, Dirty Projectors, the Chemical Brothers, Wiley and Jessie Ware, Franz Ferdinand, Bernard Sumner, Little Boots and Dels, confirms his place in the front rank of British producers.
Jehnny Beth and Johnny Hostile met 14 years ago when they decided to live in London and start their musical career – Johnny as a record
producer and composer, Jehnny as front singer in the band Savages.
After a relocation to Paris two years ago, the duo extended their creative vision to new, exciting mediums. Johnny developed a passion for photography, while Jehnny started writing poetry and fiction inspired by the images he created. Their installation for Widow Series showcases another facet of their artistic lifelong collaboration.
Best known for producing what is already being described as one of the most iconic images of the twenty-first century, ‘Lightness of Being’,
Chris Levine is a world leading light artist who works across many mediums in pursuit of an expanded state of perception and awareness.
Levine's iconic work considers light not just as a core aspect of art, but of human experience more widely – a spiritual, meditative and philosophical edge permeates his work.
Edinburgh based, Alloysious Massaquoi, Kayus Bankole and Graham ‘G’ Hastings, formed award-winning Young Fathers in 2008. Since being signed
in 2012, the trio have gained critical industry attention and gathered an impressive reputation as a formidable live act.
Cocoa Sugar, the band’s third album was released on 9th March 2018 via Ninja Tune. Cocoa Sugar sees Young Fathers operating with a newfound clarity and direction. Typically unique and exhilarating, but leaner, more muscular and self-assured than ever before.
Nick Knight OBE is among the world’s most influential and visionary photographers. As a fashion photographer, he has consistently challenged conventional notions of beauty and is fêted for his ground-breaking creative collaborations with leading designers including Yohji Yamamoto, John Galliano, Alexander McQueen. He has directed award winning music videos for Bjork, Lady Gaga and Kanye West. A long-standing commitment to experimenting with the latest technologies led to Knight launching SHOWstudio, which has revolutionised the manner in which fashion is viewed via the Internet.
Broken Politics, Neneh Cherry's extraordinary fifth solo album, finds Cherry at her most generous and benevolent towards a world that is often anything but. Equal parts angry, thoughtful, melancholy, and emboldening, Cherry and her collaborators continue to expand her ever-widening sonic palette to craft truly singular and potent music. Her inspiration, like so much great art, came from Cherry's exploring of the cross-point between the personal and the political. She searches for answers with a fearlessness to acknowledge that sometimes the answers don't even exist.Photo: Wolfgang Tillmans
