ALYX / Nick Knight: “THE SOUND OF LIGHT’S OWN DESTRUCTION” Opening and Société de 032c Bar Night

This weekend’s Société de 032c barnight, taking place just ten days after summer solstice, was held to celebrate the cosmic force “The Sound of Light’s Own Destruction,” an exhibition at the 032c WORKSHOP Vitrine by the designer Matthew Williams and fashion photographer Nick Knight for the New York-based label ALYX.

Screens showed spontaneously combusting fireworks, held inside a vitrine of their own, their explosive, full-spectrum force captured in Ultra HD. Elsewhere, 032c and Johann König screened the explosive German side beating Italy 6-5 on penalties. Click through to see portraits by Lukas Gansterer.

ALYX / Nick Knight – “The Sound of Light’s Own Destruction” is on show at 032c Workshop, St Agnes, Alexandrinenstr. 118-121 until 31 July. Come visit Mon-Fri 12-6pm, and follow this link to preorder a belt produced by 032c in collaboration with Alyx

Or was there another reference I hadn’t picked up on? The whole situation was unclear. I wasn’t there to interview him, and we didn’t know each other — I wasn’t even sure if he knew who I was.”

    A meeting of two major (and masc) egos, the neurotic Norwegian novelist Knausgaard devotes months — and a hefty word count — trying to understand what makes Anselm Kiefer tick. Tautology and transference ensue.
