• From internet to paper: printing with Vincent Hulme

    Vincent lets us into his apartment with a shy smile; it’s a Monday morning and we’re all tired. The colours of his prints, hanging in his room, immediately energises us though. They are perfectly printed in purple and green. When making a print the first step for Vincent is always to create a prototype by playing around with different images, colours or shapes in Photoshop. The printing can finally begin after he’d gotten it back as an offset plate from the plate maker. “I always go back to printing. That’s the one thing I do recurrently”, he explains.

  • “HOW FAR CAN I PUSH IT WITHOUT BREAKING THE SPELL?” STUDIO VISIT WITH HAYLEY QUENTIN

  • WHERE HAVE ALL THE DODOS GONE?

    Despite, or perhaps due to its distinction some time in the mid to late-17th century, the dodo has enjoyed an almost mythic status in history, literature and pop culture. Known to us only through drawings and archeological findings, it began its rise to fame after its incarnation in Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, and now serves as a contemporary reminder of man’s ability to hunt a species to extinction. But dodo collector Rainer Dombrowsky, who has spent his life collecting dodo-related memorabilia, has found a way of keeping the ancient bird’s spirit alive. We talk to curator Lisa Gordon about her exhibition of his collection ‘Have You Seen This Bird?’ about the curatorial process, the bird as a symbol of colonialism, and the pleasures of collecting
