A collaboration between Ice Ismail Erbil and his fashion design students.  The work investigates fashion, videos, the role of the camera and documentation.

My ten (x11) students say that Vionnet and their fashion show does hold values to do with and we discuss the following:

Elegant, White, Pure, Shadows, Bali, Gorgeous, Flowy, Futuristic, Perfume, Bouncy.

Press release:

A door is a poison.  My ten students will respond to my ideas of re-interpreting a door and the qualities.

Because a door has a handle.  It has a lock.  Now I will write down other things a door has.

A glass, seams, reflection, invisible hook on it or next to it.

Beyond Duality presents ‘Duo Beyond’

Art Festival


Open: 30 September – 2 October 2016

Private View: Thursday 29th September: 6-9 p.m

RSVP is essential.

Exhibition open for viewing by Appointment Only.

Beyond Duality present collaborative drawings in their show ‘Duo Beyond’, continuing their exploration into ideas of authorship and ownership within contemporary art practice. Ranging from gestural mark-making to observation-based techniques Beyond Duality investigate strategies collaboratively for the development and completion of works. Gradually the ‘personal’ becomes de-centred creating ambiguous mappings of the self, the subject and of representation. Oh my god beyond duality was just that and nothing else. You have no choice to listen otherwise I’ll wrip the page. Also it’s not about a relationship, faeries. it’s about a gay man in a straight mans pants.
