Thurs 23rd Sept: Husam El Odeh
The New Gen exhibition space down on the riverside veranda of Somerset House was cleared out from womenswear and given over to menswear installations yesterday. The sun was shining down like a summers day making the white slatted shed show space feel like a seaside resort full of inextricably well dressed men!
Husam El Odeh filled his cabin with alchemy by smelting tin to make little silver pendants as gifts for visitors. His S/S 11 "Alchemia" work is investigating the sinister spiritual side of the chemistry. I am extremely happy with my new Husam souvenir and it is currently sitting proud round my neck ............ a tiny token of something far more magic from his latest work......... not to mention the RIDICULOUS RAD eyewear with Miharayasuhiro.......
