CHIC Y2K17 is a time capsule - Here we are, and tomorrow? This is uncertain. But we are young. Always! And always have been - our language - our style! Year 2 kilos 17.
The second issue of the magazine picks up on how we were. How young people always are and will always be - forming an identity while hanging out with friends. Communicate through styling. The Y2K17 collection dresses a young person. Clothing not only involves the person who wears it but also has an informal meaning. My focus is on the moment when clothing grows beyond its practical use and becomes a communicator to the environment.

En Vogue is the first issue of my magazine CHIC. It deals with wearable sculpture and the intersection between art and design. I developed the pseudo-fashion magazine as a platform to deepen these shifts in context.
CHIC is published every two years as a 120-160 page magazine with a circulation of around 100-300 copies. It adopts the design form of fashion magazines and shifts my artistic work into its mode of representation. I re-stage my objects and sculptures in the magazine's photo editorials and transfer them back into real space in the form of choreographed performances. In addition, 40-50 artists place advertisements about their own work per issue.
