SPRING/SUMMER 2012 COLLECTION: ‘Philogyny’
Conchita Perez, modern womenswear’s young hope, creates another powerful collection; entwined constructions, balancing emotions and power.
The collection is playing with the idea of emphasizing particular visual aspects of the twenty first century woman, as she creates an impression.The use of contrasting luxury and transparent weight of silk with the rawness of the leather on the woman’s skin. The combination of the designers strength of strong severe cuts, sharp and innovative tailoring
gives an intimacy that gives birth to a soul : ‘Philogyny’
A pivotal season that presents a creative and commercial departure for the London based luxury brand. The collection reasserts Conchita Perez’s unique character – daring power, control, restraints and femininity that lies at the core of the brand. A willingness to take risks and to embark on difficult and unusual course of action, scratching her name into the fabric of this world.

Hackney Stables invites you for a new solo exhibition “The Object of Painting” by Bryan J. Robinson. The private view is on the 4th of November and the exhibition will be running until the 5th of December, open every weekend from 10am until 6pm.
Bryan J. Robinson´s work carries the weight of latency in a culture saturated with voids and platitudes. It is undoubtedly material but not materialistic; it is impregnated with physical resonance yet harbors untouched thoughts about the self, his own self. It has emerged from the speculative imagination of a man obsessed with color and the biology of mental transformation. Music will entice the viewers to slip behind a mirror door where they will be able to pick and purchase artifacts reflecting the artist´s mind at work such as designs, humorous offsides and accessories. Prints, bags and t-shirts crowned with the addition of a magic chewing gum point an ironic arrow at the glamorous art trade and thus turns it inside out: the artist´s inner space for sale, of course only that which furnishes it. For, although the art residing in the main chamber is seriously considered, there is and should always be cause for laughter.
Hackney Stables has recreated the idea of an European Art Salon for the gathering of our visitors under the roof of an inspiring host, held partly to amuse one another and partly to refine the taste and increase their knowledge of the participants through conversation.
The salon offers cold and hot drinks, and snacks. During the summer you can also sit outside and enjoy the sun shine.
Under you can see images of the salon.
Bryan J. Robinson
New group exhibition in the ‘Stables’, this time with Leonardo and Bryan; 2 artists working from a studio in Homerton, Kamil is showing a photo narrative with a twist and Philip’s photographic work done in Namibia. Exhibition is on till the 15th of August.
Leonardo Magnani is from Italy and have lived in London for almost a year, he has a classical background in the craft of painting from Florence and moved to London to spice up his experiences and to develop his art. The work on display is ‘collages and drawings’ done in the last year – here in London. There is a sense of a search for something authentic in Leonardo’s art work.
J.Robinson is an artist that has been working in East London for the last 20 years, with some breaks taken out to live and work in places like New York and L.A. His work on display is paintings, but its presence makes you feel like it’s more a sculpture… The two paintings shown in this exhibition is just a teaser for what to come… on the 24th of September he will have a solo show here at Hackney Stables. So come around to check it out now – so you can tell everyone that you saw it first or that you even may have seen it before.
Philip McCormack‘s work from Namibia is looking at an African space with the concepts of ‘the other’ in mind. He is fascinated with how the images of African identities in the West are filled with ideas of the savage and the primitive and how this ‘image’ today still polarize our cultures and our understandings of this continent.
Kamil Janowski have been working in the ‘dodgy business’ of porn for a few years and have done a quite good job in his documentary called ‘Ordinary People’. You wouldn’t like to miss it… or
“We all need porn, well it’s difficult to get away from it…” Kamil says, “…but it’s real people having real jobs; just satisfying peoples need for sexual fantasies, and at the same time they are satisfying their own needs.”
“Pornography is the quadraphonics of sex. It adds a third and fourth track to the sexual act. It is the hallucination of detail that rules. Science has already habituated us to this microscopics, this excess of the real in its microscopic detail, this voyeurism of exactitude.”
- Jean Baudrillardt
Pornography is a way of life, and we all have to take advantage of our experiences and talents – and don’t forget your needs!
