Mon 1st Nov: Terence Koh & Italo Zucchelli
Terence Koh teamed up with Italo Zucchelli of Calvin Klein menswear. I pulled back a black curtain to unveil a large dimly lit room with a rotation of totally silver painted men slowly pacing around in a figurative formation. It looked like they had been dipped in mercury and the galvanized gloss coating glistened in the strobe beam cast onto their metallic drenched trench coats. Wandering around the expansive space of PS1 for this "Greater New York" exhibition you were welcome to have a nose behind the scenes. Of course I readily got involved in this, by sneaking into the makeup room and snapping these references from the Lancome crew responsible for both Koh's look and the Rodarte white faces. Yum!
