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.
Martin Khanja and Sam Karugu, the artists behind Kenyan hardcore’s latest act, DUMA, spoke with 032c in advance of their debut album release this past Friday. Yesterday, Duma premiered the video for “Pembe 666” on 032c.com, “an ambient, granular rhythm that sounds like a Super 8 reel-to-reel sprocketing to infinity,” according to 032c’s Octavia Bürgel. The video, by Hibotep & Hoden Elmi, is aptly shot on film, and follows a young woman through a series of ominous encounters with the duo. WATCH THE VIDEO HERE ⬇️ ⬇️ ⬇️
