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

Earlier this week, we posted Lukas Gansterer’s portraits from the weekend’s Société de 032c barnight, held to mark the opening of “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. Here, we have part II of party imagery, shot by Maxime Ballesteros. Call it a return to the scene of the crime.

Or perhaps that should be going back to lit firework: throughout the night, screens showed spontaneously combusting explosives, held inside a vitrine of their own, their full-spectrum force captured in Ultra HD. Elsewhere, 032c and Johann König screened the German side beating Italy 6-5 on penalties. Click through to see Maxime’s portraits below.

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

    Under the music moniker Blood Orange, Devonté Hynes has spent the last decade softening the strident ego of mainstream pop with the wistful jazz and new wave tones, as well as musings on identity, belonging, and vulnerability, on albums such as Cupid Deluxe or Negro Swan. Singer, songwriter, producer, and director Hynes, who goes by Dev, brings his solitary sensibility to his other projects, too – whether scoring films and fashion shows, collaboration with visual artists, or, more recently, starring as the face of a capsule collaboration between adidas and OAMC, a menswear label founded by Luke Meier and Arnaud Faeh in 2013.More
