In the Magazine: Tomoo Gokita

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, February 25, 2015
I’m not gonna lie and say I was prepared for the overwhelming visual barrage I experienced stopping by Mary Boone Gallery on a frigid New York winter day early last year to see the work of Tomoo Gokita. For the past week leading up to my gallery visit, unfamiliar images of electrifyingly monochromatic and faceless characters infiltrated my daily social media feed. I recall a bewildering sensation, comparable to being left out of a secret—how was I not familiar with this artist’s work?  

Elisabeth Hogeman's "Geographic Tongues"

Photography // Wednesday, February 25, 2015
These photographs by Elisabeth Hogeman re-imagine the Earth depicted in the exterior panels of Hieronymus Bosch’s panel painting The Garden of Earthly Delights as a series of ‘geographic tongues.’ By replacing the globe as a representation of the world, these tongues play with the idea that the world emerges from language.

A Kaleidoscope of Monsters, Animals and Other Strange Creatures

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, February 25, 2015
"Pandemonio" is animated kaleidoscope of monsters, animals and other strange creatures brought to life by the primitive and franzied pace of Zu's music. Each figure is made by overlapping felt circles. The animation is obtained by moving, resizing and painting every circle without deforming its perfect shape. Have fun!

"Ponte City" by Mikhael Subotzky & Patrick Waterhouse

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, February 25, 2015
Juxtapoz was lucky enough to visit the Ponte City construction site in Johannesburg, South Africa with Magnum photographer Mikhael Subotzky back in 2008 as he began what would become this book collection—scratch that, this is so much more than a book: it’s an immersive archival box set of found documents, photography, essays, truly a visual history of what publishing house Steidl calls both a “ dreamland and dystopia.”

"Lost Hoops" by Adrian Skenderovic

Photography // Wednesday, February 25, 2015
Adrian Skenderovic is a Paris based photographer. His series Lost Hoops documents the run down and long forgotten basketball courts he see on his travels. Most appear homemade and in various states of disrepair but manage to avoid feeling at all sad. Brightly sunlit and surrounded by tropical plants, these courts each have their own personality and story.
