I Where A Dress in detail… Jan Manski

The confrontational vision of Polish-born Jan Manski’s multi-disciplinary projects explores the fundamental elements of the contemporary individual’s fixations. By combining his skilful, macabre productions with a little bit of humour, Mankin manages to reference modern culture, mythology and history in an ambitious way. Through his work, Manski channels the most narcissistic traits of our society as a disfiguring force, driving us into a self-destructive future of unattainable perfection. With a meticulous sense of detail and feeling for the grotesque, Manski’s ‘alternative universe’ is downright disturbing. But inevitably there’s no pleasure without pain, and what follows in Manski’s invented world is a state of gradual disfiguration and destruction brought on by ourselves. Such is the price to pay for our obsession with vanity.

Jamie Coe’s Art Schooled: studying at CSM illustrated

The graphic novel of Central Saint Martins graduate Jamie Coe, ‘Art Schooled’, is a challenging and humorous portrayal of ‘first impressions’, anxieties, making friends, and the awkward stage of coming of age. Following the protagonist Daniel Stope through his ‘enrolment at art school and consequent move to the city’, the reader experiences a vibrant and high pressure environment through his sometimes naive and critical eyes. We are reminded of the difficult truth that we are all too quick to judge at times. We ask Coe about the origins of ‘Art Schooled’, why he feels graphic novels are a powerful medium to discuss social and political issues, and how comics interact with their audience unlike other art forms.
