CHRISTMAS BAUBLE BID! 20 Artist Baubles, 3 Days Left to Bid!

December 20, 2013 by Georgie

Twenty Christmas baubles have been exclusively customised and created by fashion designer Matthew Williamson's celebrity friends, including actors, designers and artists and are up for grabs on an Ebay auction until Sunday 22nd December! 100% of the proceeds will go to the charity, Kids Company. The twenty baubles will be on exhibit in London's famous Shard building, on display on level 31 at the Aqua Shard restaurant and bar until New Year's Eve.

Matthew Williamson's festive project captures his long established alliance with the art world - Matthew Williamson first collaborated with artist Mat Collishaw last year on 'Britain Creates' as part of the Cultural Olympiad for London 2012.

Well known figures including actresses Sienna Miller and Gwyneth Paltrow, and artists Rankin, Matt Collishaw and Polly Morgan have all designed their decorations, each different to the next and full of creativity, charm and a little hint of humour!

Mat Collishaw 

“I have taken inspiration from Christmas being the commemoration of the birth of Jesus, and the conception of the virgin egg by the sperm of the almighty.”

Polly Morgan

“I made an Yves Klein and Matisse inspired bright blue bauble, like a surrealist drop of winter sky. The woodpecker was my own intervention; it reminded me of Camilla Batmanghelidjhi; colourfully dressed and tenacious. What we see as dead wood, it recognises as being rich in potential. By persistently tapping away, it reaps rewards. This is the spirit of Kids Company and why I can’t say no to them.”

With starting prices from £100 - starting your bidding now for a chance to purchase one of these unique Christmas decorations, and add and extra sparkle to your Christmas tree!

Tracey Emin X Harland Miller

December 17, 2013 by Emma

Tracey Emin and Harland Miller, two names synonymous with London’s contemporary art scene, come together in 'Dedication', the latest episode of the series in conjunction with EDITION Hotels, shot by their old friend, the long-time documentarian Johnnie Shand Kydd.

Rather than a collaboration, I see it more as helping each other out,” says Emin. “When I was a younger artist, we all used to do that.” Emin rose to international fame in the late 1990s as one of a new wave of British conceptual artists championed by collector Charles Saatchi, and featured in his seminal exhibition of 1997 Sensation. While Emin and Miller muse on the focused and frequently isolated world that artists inhabit in this video, they also discuss their occasional collaborations with other artists, including each other.

Miller has published several novels and become known for his large canvasses depicting satirical, fictional Penguin covers, and in 2008 organized an exhibition, You Dig the Tunnel, I’ll Hide the Soil, at London’s White Cube Gallery, where he asked artists as well as Emin to make a work as a response to a particular piece of writing by Edgar Allan Poe. Emin obliterated Miller’s own contribution to their joint work by painting over it, but Miller remained unfazed. “That’s a positive part of collaboration,” says Miller. “You have to take it on the chin.”
