Love Notes. Interview with Artist Louise Enhörning
“I wanted to find strong colors that represent the different emotions that can be evoked in love,” says Louise Enhörning when she shows me her book Agape that accompanied the exhibition by the same name at Loyal Gallery in Stockholm. Louise, whose last name “Enhörning” means unicorn in Swedish, has a career that spans more than twenty years. She lived in Paris for a decade and presented her book Agape (Art and Theory Publishing, 2019) in conjunction with Paris Photo, the photography fair at the Grand Palais. By Antonia Nessen

Out Now! Our New Print Issue of Contributor is here
The theme that runs through our latest print issue is CASTING AND COLLECTIONS. Both are central concepts in fashion. The mechanism behind changes in fashion can be compared to a kaleidoscope. Unreliable pieces of clothing are always in flight, ready to become something else. The key to taking hold of these fleeting moments is usually to look at a designer’s handiwork in detail from collection to collection, since clothing derives its consistency from its role as part of a series. Other paths to finding a narrative in fashion are through styling or photography. Patterns seen through the fashion kaleidoscope can, however, easily be freed of their current meaning. After giving it a few violent shakes, they can go from being interpreted as frivolous to provocative and offensive, by rearranging the compositions and shaping themselves into different meanings. By using the kaleidoscope as a metaphor for fashion in this issue entitled CASTING AND COLLECTIONS, we look back at the modernist writers of the early twentieth century who frequently returned to the image of the optical instrument in their writings. When describing the modern experience in “Arcades Project,” Walter Benjamin for one, writes that: “Every age unavoidably seems to itself a new age. The ‘modern,’ however, is as varied in its meaning as the different aspects of one and the same kaleidoscope.
