My contribution to the Grassi Museum for applied arts is still on show till November 2013. The Jeremy Scott for adidas poodle sneakers I have borrowed the museum, from my private collection, are now featured in the official book/catalogue of the show. Edited by Kerber Verlag. The exhibition is well worth a trip to Leipzig and my poodles are well taken care for by all the lovely co-workers from Grassi! I shot the pictures of the JS Poodle which you can see in the catalogue on page 157!

I decided to go punk for aesthetical reasons… and perhaps for gender reasons as well… but about gender I will report soon… very soon! Sooner then later – stay tuned! So I made the Jeremy Punk installation for No74, in Berlin.
Jeremy Scott… A little total look jumps out of his adidas spring/summer 2013 collection… Between all the teddy bears, poodles, pastels and neons, there is a shroud of punk and politics… or maybe just aesthetic punk without politics… your pic on how to interpret it…
Most ignorant people would complain about his punk design… but let them yell at their own mirroirs… let them cry and drink up their own bitter tears while we rejoice in the fact that we are free! Enjoy your freedom and never take it for granted! It is not a given! It is a privilege to be free! And so I say, we still need a revolution! Freedom should not be a privilege! It should be a free must!
Peace and love!
P.S. The little installation is to be seen at No74, in Berlin!

IVAN CIVIC private collection contribution to the GRASSI Museum fuer angewandte Kunst and to the Virtual Shoe Museum
I have contributed to an upcoming exhibition by borrowing sneakers and photos from my private performance collection. This time its a pair of pink Jeremy Scott Poodles, model number Q23499, from the adidas ObyO ss13 collection. The exhibition is entitled: “STARKER AUFTRITT!” (experimentelles Schuh-design) and will take place from 28.03. – 29.09.2013 in the GRASSI Museum für angewandte Kunst (Leipzig, Germany) in collaboration with the Virtual Shoe Museum from Holland. We are hoping there wil be a catalogue too. As a teaser, here the link to my photo and poodle shoe on the Virtual shoe Museum. Hope to see many of you at the opening in March!

Roselyn Titaud made this picture of me… I still remember what I was thinking of when she shot it! Thanks Roselyn! Hair by Persona non Grata, nailpolish Bernhard Willhelm with USLU, pants ABirato, sweater CT NY.
I had a great time at the adidas party! Somebody took this picture of me and it ended up HERE! I wonder who the photographer was? As you can clearly see, I love colors! Here a mash-up of Jeremy Scott for ObyO, C-neeon, New Era “Zombie trapper” and Vivienne Westwood! Black is so overrated and mostly used by the weak! There are dangerous news coming up soon! xxx
You know… in these lonely nights, away from all civilisation, on the top of a little mountain, surrounded only by deep thoughts… one gets to be quite sad… and one starts to think a lot about everything… especially those things one should never think about… such as fear of what will follow once I come back home… or where I will go to next… or losing somebody I love… or just the thought of what I thought and felt love would be and feel like when I was younger. In this late hour, on a cold february saturday night, I remember exactly how I felt when Read More…
this summer sucks…
breaking up if so painfull it feels like dieing! The pain is not fading!
August is a “good-bye” kind of month and it always brings out the nostalgy that will follow up till mid -end october, leaving space to a cold winter…
these days I am not on holidays anywhere… all my friends stood me up. Nobody gives a fuck or is too busy surviving. So now the time has come for me to do my shit regardless of the others and stop saying always yes! SO here I am saying NO to useless phone calls, silly requests, miserable date offers and boring conversations.
I will have my holidays and they will be spent in Berlin, at home, with the phone off the hook and no e-mails and work. No blood suckers around me any more. Just lazy sublime nothing. A soft summer breeze, a video camera, a photo camera, inspiration and me.
Here is a first boost of inspiration… minimal… trashy and real! after the jump you can see the other four parts of the video as well. enjoy.
