We talk erotica with Folch Studio ahead of the launch of Odiseo Vol 4 this week

We talk erotica with Folch Studio ahead of the launch of Odiseo Vol 4 this week | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

Every time a new erotic title comes through the door we wonder how long they’ll survive. There’s so many “intelligent” magazines out there with a penchant for nudity that we assume only a few will last more than a couple of issues – even if the quality is superb. One title in the erotic stable that continues to grow and develop is Odiseo, a publication from Barcelona’s Folch studio that’s more of a book than a magazine. In it you’ll find a sensitive approach to erotic subjects and a wealth of illuminating opinion pieces all of which subvert what we’ve come to define as erotic in the digital age.

Sarah Anne Johnson: From the Arctic to the Erotic

Sarah Anne Johnson: From the Arctic to the Erotic | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

Sarah Anne Johnson is an artist who likes to scratch, burn, and draw all over her exquisitely composed photographs. Previously, she took pictures of boreal landscapes in the Arctic Circle, sublime images that she altered in a way to convey mankind’s impact on nature. Johnson’s new series, “Wonderlust,” turns the focus from the environmental to the intimate, capturing people having sex. She adjusts the images in a way to expose the romantic, boring and sometimes comedic aspects of carnality, in order to show what sex “really looks and feels like.”

VERNISSAGE du nouveau magazine érotique SOSOSO ce vendredi 8 mars 2013, lors de la Fête du Slip, au Zinema (Lausanne). De 18h à 23h, les visiteurs auront également la possibilité de découvrir les tirages originaux des photographies, ainsi que les images non publiées.

 

Entre 20h et 21h., toujours dans le cadre du vernissage, la performance shibari "Bodies of light" de Michaël Ronsky se déroulera dans la même salle.

 

SOSOSO paraîtra quatre fois par année, il se positionne comme une plateforme ouverte sur le thème des sexualités. La ligne graphique et éditoriale changera à chaque numéro, suivant les sujets abordés et les articles publiés. Le contenu du magazine ne sera en aucun cas pornographique ; ce projet ne recherche ni le spectaculaire, ni la provocation, il s'agit avant tout d'ouvrir le débat et de donner la possibilité à quiconque de soumettre ses expériences et ses réflexions.

Ren Hang | NUE Galerie (Paris)

Ren Hang | NUE Galerie (Paris) | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

“Nudity is not published in China,” Beijing-based photographer Ren Hang told Pas Un Autre. “An exhibition was canceled, someone spat at my work, cameras getting confiscated by the police, and almost going to jail.”

Ren Hang’s photos contain a lot of nudity, but it’s not really pornographic titillation. Pop mysticism? (Erupting in clusters of birds) Pop physics? (Arranged in precarious piles) Absurdism? (Ass up, head in a ground hole) Avant-garde lite? (Drenched in red, squatting with flowers) Ok, it’s a bit Ryan McGinley with the blue smoke stacks in the woods, but… It works.

Ren Hang’s new exhibit opens at the Paris NUE gallery later this month. “La Chine a Nue,” Ren Hang, Jan 17 – Mar 14, NUE gallerie, Paris

ECAL Library's insight:

A voir jusqu'au 17 mars 2014 !
