I Where A Dress in detail… Alan Magee

The multi-dimensional work of Irish-born artist Alan Magee raises questions concerning the nature of signs, and reality through a complex mise en abime, which obscures the ideas of nature and definition. His work interrogates the distinction between reality and its representation, while his process explores the possibility of finding a place in the world through the action of transformation.

The Chaotic Practice of artist Andreas Emenius

Andreas Emenius is an artist who covers a lot of ground. His work explores figuration and abstraction in videos, paintings, sculptures and performances, and his collaborations with fashion designer Henrik Vibskov and musician Trentemøller see him engage the few mediums he hasn’t explored on his own. We caught him just after the opening of ‘this sticky mess will get us there’ at Nordic Contemporary, a show he curated with Jacob Valdemar, to talk about art and his CSM education.

Shawn Soh: Reimagining the world within our human body

BA Graphic Design graduate Shawn Soh certainly did not come to Central Saint Martins in a typical 'studying trajectory' where one goes through the foundation year aged 19, starts a BA at 20, and graduates from an MA around 25. Instead, the Singaporean was a Radar and Navigation specialist in the Navy, studied to become a pastor and quit half-way through, started his own design company (and faked that he had a secretary and in turn won a massive exhibition competition), and became a buyer for a large furniture company. Having a well-rounded view of what the world is like in reality can heavily influence one's design practise, and so by having experience Soh is able to merge both concept and aesthetics into a final orchestration of sound, image, and physical objects. Where he first created an Eraser that resembled an analog Snapchat device which takes your digital picture, prints it and after a couple of seconds destroys it, his graduate project explores the idea of materialising what's inside of our bodies.
