falling in love with poetry

opet je pretoplo i o5 mi je, i pored svega, ostanak u stanu bolja solucija, nego da se kuvam napolju. dovezem se sa posla na svom konju vranom (aka biciklu), odradim popodnevnu siestu i onda putujem. sajber prostorima. kuda god mi duša zaželi. od azorskih ostrva (u znak sećanja na vladimira majakovskog, dan uoči njegovog rođendana) do jednog prelepog apartmana na east village, nyc adresi.

 

azores islands

ja sam se rodio, sisao isprva
živeo, radio, i starost ce doći…
evo, i život kao azorska ostrva će proći.

(vladimir majakovski (19. jul 1893-14. april 1930) , plitka poezija na dubokim mestima)

majakovski, portret koji je napravio rodčenko 1924.

u new yorku je cleo wade i njen dom. poseban i ljubak kao što je i ona. i njeni stihovi koje piše na smith corona pisaćoj mašini pastelno roze boje! svoju poeziju objavljuje na instagramu i na zidovima. virtuelnim i pravim pravcatim. ona je i likovna umetnica. i feministkinja. i društveno odgovorna i angažovana osoba koja na različite načine podržava i bodri one čiji se glas ne čuje. a ni moda joj nije strana, zapravo radi se o njenom stilu. i jasno je da ga takve osobe imaju. i model je, ali i saradnik modnih magazina. i stilista. u upravi je the national black theatre u new yorku, tačnije u harlemu. poznata je po art instalacijama sa porukama, poput one ogromne 2015. u new orleansu koja se zvala “respect”. to je, u stvari, emotivno ljubavno pismo njenom rodnom gradu new orleansu, deset godina nakon što je uragan katrina potopio gotovo 80% ovog grada i odneo skoro 2000 ljudskih života. na  billboardu u istorijskoj, francuskoj četvrti stoje njeni stihovi.

a na internetu njena adresa je: www.cleowade.com

cleo:  i called that poem respect because when you really look into the definition of respect, it means to have deep admiration for what someone has been through.

cleo o sebi kaže “i describe myself as a maker. i get up every morning and try to make things. sometimes it’s on paper, and sometimes it’s on a wall. every day i have the intention of building community with others through creating”

“the best thing about girl power is that over time it turns into woman power.”

 

cleo wade: ‘i think that whenever we are able to allow art to be a form of storytelling that shares the beauty, fragility, vulnerability and power of our humanity, then we are doing a public service. when you share your truths and your stories, you give other people permission to do the same. we have so much more power to see each other and free each other than we think. i just try to focus every day on storytelling.’

a ovako je vidi vogue:

“on a humid saturday last summer, a young woman with a halo of curls put on a white cotton dress and set up a booth at the hester street fair in downtown manhattan. she wasn’t selling artisanal jerky or hand-painted pottery — what she had on offer instead, as advertised by a bright-blue sign propped against a vase of yellow flowers, was “peaceful and loving conversation.” a banner above her head read ARE YOU OK? “honestly, it was inspired by lucy from peanuts,” recalls cleo wade. “she’s an icon.”

tilda, korea, hanbok…

well, magazine vogue ume da posveti pažnju ljudima koji su poznati po tome što su samo poznati, ali ume i te kako da pokloni pažnju i onima koji je istinski zavređuju.  za 19. godišnjicu (južno) korejski vogue je sa dobrim ukusom i stilom svoje reflektore usmerio na ženu koja se zove tilda swinton. btw, ovde gde živim nacionalnog izdanja vogue magazina nema ni na vidiku. što je sasvim za očekivati za zemlju u kojoj prosečna plata fakultetski obrazovanog čoveka ne dobacuje preko 450 eura. no, sreća se ne kupuje novcem… ima raznih načina. otići preko granice npr. 🙂 ili sanjati, biti day dreamer. ili…

kako god, internet je dostupan i onom gorepomenutom mom sunarodniku sapatniku koji ima cca 450 eura, pa može da zaviri i u južnokorejski vogue. i da vidi kako tilda osim što sjajno glumi, sjajno izgleda i kao model. i to u svetu terora mladosti! ta sjajna talentovana, oskarom ovenčana, obrazovana, buntovna i slobodna žena od 55 godina!! njena autentičnost i ta prefinjena jednostavnost vidljiva je i u chanelovoj garderobi (inspirisanoj korejom ) i kada nosi modernizovan korejski hanbok koji potpisuje baek oak-soo  ili  tchai kim young jin. fotografije je uradio hong jang hyun. btw, hanbok je čudesno lepa tradicionalna korejska odežda i preporučujem ti knjigu sunny yanghanbok – the art of koeran clothing“. ja sam uspela da je nabavim i guštaću je ovih dana…

the last great taboo of modern western civilisation. capitalism is built on the idea that one can go out and buy another scented candle and get less lonely somehow. but i think the deal is that you are fully lonely, and the sooner we accept and embrace our loneliness, the healthier we are. and that real love has nothing to do with that romantic idea of oneness, of distracting and healing each other from our loneliness, it’s about witnessing each other as individuals and saying: i’ll show you mine if you show me yours.”

“i’m not even sure i have a love for fashion, to be perfectly honest with you. my relationship with fashion is entirely based on my relationship with various individuals and friends of mine who happen to make the work. if i didn’t have those friendships, i would not be invited to their shows or even invited to wear their clothes. i don’t follow fashion. i still have and am happy to retain a beginner’s mind.” (tilda swinton, 4 in style)

“maybe the interesting thing about clothes is that people live in them, and that there’s nothing else really to be said, and so it’s trying to trace that and concentrate on that, and to honour our clothes, rather than coco chanel or napoleon or anybody else. actually our clothes.” (tilda swinton, dazed)

Tilda Swinton by Hong Jang Hyun  for Vogue Korea August 2015  7

“i wanted to convey observations about a kind of limitation of a completely false hierarchy in the market and a kind of global availability and domination of certain luxury brands, which is disappointing at best. it’s possible to walk into a rich person’s house in any city in the world and find the same make of candles, or the same shoes. i find it a waste of cultural specificity and history and myth making, and i would so much rather walk into someone’s house, however much money they have, and feel that i’m actually connecting with the culture of that place and the people who live in that place. i’m disappointed when i go through airports and i see the same shops and i think there’s a way in which that particular luxury milieu is like one big duty-free shop.” (tilda swinton)

i’m basically interested in identity, and i still find fascinating the question, how do we identify ourselves, and how do we settle into other people’s expectations for our identity… (tilda swinton)

“there are very few clothes that really move properly, in relation to the body, like haider’s do – that feeling of them being designed for movement; designed for the body; for the gesture. i really love the way in which he designs for a moving human body and you’d think in fashion that’s not such a tall order but it is. people still design for the still frame, for one photograph when the person isn’t moving at all and are posed,” (tilda swinton, vogue)

the lost explorer, 2010, rediteljski debi tim walkera

i think that the lost explorer is all about film – moving film. as a photographer i think that the two meaningful books are pictures and story teller. but then, as a filmmaker, there’s a totally different process because you’re working with a complete story. when you work as a photographer you’re working more with a mood and with a suggestion of something that enables the viewer to be able to put themselves in to the picture and imagine themselves in that situation: that’s what i think the human element in still photography is. with film you have to be a storyteller and not stray from the story; you have to be very, very specific – that’s what that film was about.

tim walker – floating drive in, florida, 2005

i find the word ‘art’ a little bit self-congratulatory and i find it uncomfortable: i’m a photographer. art isn’t decided at the moment it’s made – a lot of people would disagree with me, but i think time decides what art is. the most unlikely things become art. for me to say, ‘this is art photography,’ i’m just not that sort of person; this is photography, this is me playing with a camera. call it what you will but i would call it photography.

everyone’s talking about things as art and i think time decides. so I can’t answer that – i think time answers that, or we’ll answer that in the passage of time. i think some photographers have become art, someone like dianne arbus, because time has passed and there’s an emotion she’s captured as a photographer. you can call her a photographer but you can also call her an artist. but she would never have called herself an artist. avedon would never have called himself an artist.
