Anaïs Rallo

Fascinated since childhood by snails, and the way they challenge ideas about sexuality in today’s society, Rosza threw herself into writing, merging two of her biggest interests. Questioning questions, her stylish style shouts and simultaneously whispers the bim bam bam of the streets in the cities of this world, that always runs a little too fast. Thrown around, tossed between bodies and lines in the metro, Rosza is as interested in words as in the absence of them.

Do:mi:no is a co-disciplinary collective that strives to rethink and question the interactions between artistic and musical fields through graphic and musical support, through encounters, collaborative events and crossed glances.

Anaïs is a graphic designer – illustrator with an approach situated at the crossroads of art and design. She plays on double-entendres and on the interpretation of the observer/reader. Her minimalist line, generally black and white, is sometimes punctuated by a few coloured notes, oscillating between a naive-poetic aesthetic and a sometimes disturbing look.”

Between 1960 and 1980 thirty-five automatic garage buildings where built in São Paulo’s downtown district. Garagem Automática was created from the encounter with this mechanical body, the machine that stores machines. The book invites us to travel through this space and its atmosphere, an imagined parallel chamber, inhabited by the traces of time, use and the machines that operate its interior.

🇬🇧 Printed on a light-box or on a billboard, taking flight atop a vehicle, hand drawn, painted, as a sticker or a neon sign, letters are everywhere in the public space and their representations are multiple. A group of graphic designers and artists specialize in creating signs that take on the allegorical potential of the alphabetical letter; substituting it with a figurative element, to over-signify the context the letter indicates.

The book presents a collection of 350 letters-images collected in the public space between 2016 and 2019 indexed and classified into 13 themes.

🇬🇧 This publication takes shape as an alphabet book and a typographic specimen shedding light onto the cartazistas’ craft, unique to the Brazilian scene. Employee or freelance, he or she elaborates by hand the visual communication material for many businesses (supermarkets, butchers, convenience stores, bakeries…). Mostly self-taught, trained through observation” or via internet, these professional calligraphers have developed the art of handwriting and composition. They have adopted, each one in their own manner and with specific tools, a unique craftsmanship in letter drawing.

The encounter and interview with three Cartazistas constitutes the contents of the publication.

240 pages, 432 grams, four inks, four motifs, House, Car, Dog, Flowers. A few digits, four words and there you have it, Elvire Bonduelle’s new book. This time again it will be a question of happiness and mechanics. As we flip through the pages a strong hypnotic domestic procession takes place. The wouaf wouaf of the Dobermann, the clic-clac of the Velux and the vroum vroum of the Alpha Romeo preceding and repeating each other, yet they are never alike. This book could have been called Groundhog Day, yet it doesn’t, its title is: Maison Voiture Chien Fleurs.

Están ahí. Entre nosotros, todos los días.”

Lust at large – A reference to undressing and stepping out of societal norms, Carcy magazine is a large format journal focusing on the topic and representation of eroticism following its tagline Lust at large. Carcy, a biannual magazine with a timeless allure, comes with a sophisticated, minimalist aesthetic and a penchant for vintage, high-end quality photography and portraiture. Visually, it draws on the history of the photography and narrative process of cinema. This lustful fashion magazine is about people and their link between something both intimate and universal, ancient acts constantly redefined by new norms and rules.

For Stephane Carcy, creative director and editor-in-chief, photography is truth, and all the artists he likes and, in a way or another, end up in his publication—in the form of inspiration— are all related to images, like Pina Bausch, Christian Boltanski or Jean-Luc Godard. Throughout century all human beings articulate freedom via carnal expression and this is what Carcy wants to celebrate.

Edited by Stephane Carcy. Issue 4 features Edwina Preston on the cover, shot by Amit Israeli.

It’s 2020 and our bodies are still political.

The 21st century still drags on with the same beauty standards of the last century. Those of a young, white, thin, ethereal and heterosexual woman. Beauty, or rather a  woman’s first commercial asset; is a passport to a happy marriage, professional success and social recognition. Both women and men are bombarded with an infinite amount of photoshopped images, which has alienated them and also driven them on a search for ideal beauty. This claustrophobic and impossible standard has only lead us to eternal comparison, frustration and levels of self-hatred. A blinded population starved by its regimes, which becomes terribly tractable and obedient.

Refusing the norm is to choose, as from the vulnerable side as the enthusiastic one, to be incorruptible, faithful to oneself, honest, punk in front of a capitalist system that fathers monstrous children of uniformity and consumerism, all made from the same postcolonial and patriarchal mould.

The artist refused the norm. She cherished and desired bodies of all ages, sizes, genders and colours, with intent to deconstruct beauty standards, beginning a quest for honesty, empowerment, acceptance and self-confidence, while gathering the words of her peers and taking a tender look at them.

These incorruptible bodies are a celebration of the diverse, the unlikely, the ambiguous, the androgynous, the non-obvious and the non-binary.

Les corps incorruptibles is a feminist, queer and anti-racist declaration of love.

Quarantine T–Shirt

Throughout recent months our realities have changed drastically, with the coronavirus taking centre-stage in the quarantine world tour that has so quickly made its way across the globe.

And with every tour comes its accompanying merchandise (even the uncomfortably apocalyptic science-fiction ones). In the hopes of producing something positive from a situation so negative, and of coming together in times that pull us apart, this t-shirt – now available on @everpresshq – was designed in collaboration with Pedro Mata Nogueira 31,00 €.

Available until May 12

I met Camila while she was working at one of those orchid shops down by 9th street and San Pedro. Soon after I took her portrait, she left. For the next two weeks, I would come back looking for her.
