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.
“Costumes and clothing were extremely important for Die Tödliche Doris. Without clothing, Doris would have been absolutely unperceivable. One could even say she has her clothes alone to thank for her existence. Because Doris doesn’t have a body, much less an identity. That is to say, she has less than absolutely nothing. Her presence can solely be felt through her clothing.”
