The modern museum in Stockholm is good at keeping busy! Just a couple of weeks ago the Kraftwerk collaboration opened and today a new exhibition called Natural Motion by Mexican Gabriel Orozco had it’s premiere (open for public tomorrow). This is the first time Gabriel’s work is shown in Scandinavia and it contains pieces created by three different techniques, photography, painting and sculpture. It’s very rare that an artist uses different mediums which is clearly in the advantage for Gabriel. There’s a red thread through the entire collection, organic and soft shapes. The first piece that you meet going in to the expo is a large reconstruction of a giant whale skeleton, painted in a constant repeated pattern, it gives you a soothing feeling of being at a natural museum of history. I think showing the two exhibitions, From Kraftwerk to Léger and Natural Motion is really smart, they give of two completely different vibes but is contemporary and retrospective at the same time. Go and enjoy yourselves they’re both really good :)
I actually got up at 6 this morning, I had to go to the early yoga class since I was meeting Sandra and Meghan at 11 to go see the AW14 collection of Mes Dames. Because I was on my way to Copenhagen I missed the runway show at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Stockholm and I'm really happy I got the chance to see the garments up close today :) There's some really nice pieces in the collection (inspired by Jeanne d'Arc), especially the quilted maxi coats. I will follow up with some look book images asap and there will also be an interview with the creator of Mes Dames Lisa Wikström published pretty soon. For the occasion I wore some yellow eyeshadow.
I saw Mendoza perform twice in Copenhagen at the fashion week party's. She reminded me a bit of Lune, but in a totally different style. Now I can't stop listening.
