1. F*cking love New York / Feb 2014

     
  2. On golden hour of Valentine’s day in Venice CA, Jessica and I bought a bunch of red & white balloons and headed to the beach to give them out randomly…..to lovers, tight-rope-walkers, anyone with a smile - and a lot of lovely little humans. Such simple things cause such simple joy. Here’s some of our favorite outtakes. Just in the spirit of love.

    Venice, CA (November 3rd, 2013) – On Saturday, November 9th, The Space 650 on 650 Sunset Avenue, Venice, CA, is pleased to present the solo exhibition “Eat Cake” by Venice-based photographer Faith-Ann Young.

     

    “Eat Cake” is a large format photographic series depicting French performance artists, House of Drama. Young met the troupe, which typically perform in the Paris underground night scene, in a basement lounge during Miami Art Basel and followed them to their hometown Paris to create this series. Inspired by still life painting, Romanticism, and magical realism, the work addresses conventions of sexuality, class, and culture. The subjects role-play in a bohemian bourgeoisie apartment in Paris. In some images, they parody traditional husband and wife roles, in others, formal family portraits. In Igor Brewing, Igor casually pours tea, resplendent in 10-inch homemade welded stilettos and thigh-high hosiery. In Ylva in Bloom, dancer Ylva poses spread-legged atop a mantle – one part ornamental Goddess, one part provocative study on female subjugation. The outcome is a colorful exploration of identity and self-expression, art and artifice. Employing their own bodies as canvases, these performance artists become ‘tableaus vivants,’ living pieces of art.
