Madame Peripetie explores the boundaries between fashion, sculpture and the human body, experimenting with various fabrics and patterns; whilst infusing high-fashion elements with abstract and conceptual ideas, creating an eccentric escapade of color and texture. In her work she is focusing mainly on the interaction between body, language and new media. Her inspirations include surrealism, dadaism as well as the new wave era of the 80s, British post punk scene and the avantgarde theater of Robert Wilson.
A little break after being busy but I’m hopefully back on a regular basis. This is Emily Keegin. She does some wonderful things with objects and a camera.
I’m not entirely sure what to write about Brice Chatenoud. I think he’s from France, he is a photographer, and he mashes up his images by sometimes dismembering his subjects and/or adding sea creatures. Thanks for the email.

“Hey You!” is an artistic response to the January 12th 2010 earthquake in Haiti by Le Set, a New York based art collective made up of seven young artists. The members of Le Set spent an inspirational week in Haiti, volunteering with HealingHaiti.org – teaching art to orphans, delivering water, distributing food, and documenting their journey. The work they created will be presented in a gallery exhibition and published book.
