editor’s letter

How to end a decade? What horizon for the next ten years? For this issue, The Warning Issue looks back at the alerts that littered the ‘10s and their ability to bring out new forms, stories, and metaphors. For this, five artistic projects punctuate these pages as bursts, protrusions in an accelerated time, if not direct responses to contemporary jolts. The overload of information with which we are newly confronted, in fact, modifies our relationship with words and images. - Focus, scrolling, cut and recut, copy-paste - practices that participate in a form of attention bursting as much as they involve methods of poetic reconstruction, reversing the predictive logics imposed by algorithms. Oral or written data, bloated and unexpected, activating by spam and notifications, are reshaped in slogans and language explosions…

300 shades of grey

In his large-format photographs, which sometimes exceed a meter high, there are always empty rooms: here, paved stones in the corner of a corridor; there, a worn wall, decorated with some floral patterns. Elsewhere, there are deserted landscapes, a foggy bridge sprinkled with lonely trees. The void, always, and abandonment. Human presence in his pictures is sparse, except for naked female bodies whose faces you can hardly see because they are cropped in the framing. Sometimes, you only see the endless legs in suggestive positions. Bodies are also often blurred by playing with reflections or by superimposing images, by erasing the information and having images that seem unfathomable. It enables anonymity and lets the spectator, who can only believe in their own perception, have their imagination run free. This is…

prada mode under surveillance

Somewhere between a think-tank and a club, the eponymous brand’s institutional hybrid is currently being overseen by technophile artist Trevor Paglen and AI specialist Kate Crawford. Their live program contains a series of talks, performances, and an installation on the state of contemporary digital surveillance, where the artist Hito Steyerl will take visitors through issues such as the politics of facial profiling and the use of AI by authoritarian states. In the art nouveau architecture of this début de siècle atmosphere, the artists have developed several windows and displays marked by characterology, a pseudoscience based on methods of personality reading. It attempts to decipher an individual’s character and intelligence through their appearance. Inspired by this anxious historical precedent, Paglen and Crawford have created a digital panoptic installation where the visitor is…

hugo boss asia art award bodies and genders

This year, the Taiwanese artist Hsu Che-Yu, the Chinese artist Hao Jingban and the Vietnamese artist Thao-Nguyên Phan all thought they might win. But it was the pretty 33-year-old brunette, straight from Manila in the Philippines who dethroned them, earning the award they had been waiting for: the Hugo Boss Asia Art Award. They will have the privilege of exhibiting alongside her until January 5, 2020, in a room at the Rockbund Art Museum (RAM). It’s no coincidence that Eisa Jocson was selected. First of all, she is unclassifiable: she comes from a classical ballet background but received training in the visual arts. She says she is a dancer and as much a choreographer as a performer. Her obsession? Bodies in movement and their representations in places where they are…

roman molds under siege

Fendi and design, it’s an old story! It all started in 2008, at Design Miami, with design talks that brought together a young creative team, from the Campana brothers to Tom Dixon. It didn’t stop there: the following year, the brand did it again at Milan’s Salone del Mobile, with Craft Punk, a performance where the designers, supported by the craftsmen of the house, had a blast reinventing manufacturing methods. A series of amazing collaborations have followed each year: in Miami, Milan and Basel. This year, at Design Miami, Fendi’s creative director, Silvia Venturini called on the Swiss studio Kueng Caputo, led by Sarah Kueng and Lovis Caputo. They created Roman Molds, a collection of ten objects inspired by the architecture of Fendi’s Italian headquarters, the Palazzo della Civiltà Italiana. How…
