Lawler hors cadre

New York A member of the Pictures Generation, Louise Lawler has spent her life reappropriating art made by others, photographing works by Warhol, Serra and Richter in museum storerooms or in the homes of private collectors. She warbled the names of famous male artists to call attention to women, and is now focusing on distorting reality.

Voyage immobile

Spiere  Vincent Sheppard’s outdoor chairs are an invitation to relax and let your mind wander. Made in Indonesia using in some cases the Lloyd Loom method (kraft paper and steel wire), they combine attractive styling, durability and easy upkeep. When you’re curled up in a garden sofa with a book or cup of tea, escape is no illusion.
