An encounter with Christian Marclay, at the Celine runway show and at the Tate Modern

Art In his first show for the house of Celine, Hedi Slimane paid a very marked tribute to the Swiss-American artist Christian Marclay by revisiting and transposing some of his works within the collection (prints on bags and clutches, embroidery on couture dresses, kimonos…) At the same time, Christian Marclay was taking hold of the Tate Modern with his major pieceThe Clock, shown for the first time in London in 2010, before winning the Golden Lion award at the Venice Biennale the following year. The 24-hour video installation is composed of thousands of films clips edited together to tell the actual time. The result is as captivating as it is poetic.   In his first show for the house of Celine, Hedi Slimane paid a very marked tribute to the Swiss-American artist Christian Marclay by revisiting and transposing some of his works within the collection (prints on bags and clutches, embroidery on couture dresses, kimonos…) At the same time, Christian Marclay was taking hold of the Tate Modern with his major pieceThe Clock, shown for the first time in London in 2010, before winning the Golden Lion award at the Venice Biennale the following year.

Rick Owens: “We all struggle with who we are. We have shame, we have pride, we have self delusion.”

Art Since founding his brand in 1994, the fearless and eminently non-conformist designer Rick Owens has been mixing sophisticated aestheticism and punk rage, minimalism and flamboyance, in all the creative fields from fashion to furniture. His cult of chaos is now taking over the Triennale in Milan, which is paying him homage with the very first major retrospective of his career. Numéro asked him about this rite of passage.  Since founding his brand in 1994, the fearless and eminently non-conformist designer Rick Owens has been mixing sophisticated aestheticism and punk rage, minimalism and flamboyance, in all the creative fields from fashion to furniture.
